Yep. Wait a couple of years and get this level of performance on a RTX 4070 or 4080 at a much lower price.

And wait a couple more years for rtx 5070 or 5080 at a much much lower price

That headline is a tad misleading.
The rig stated in that YouTube video is extremely high-end (ryzen 3950x oc, 32gb etc) and utilizing special water-cooling solutions, loops with pumps etc.

This rig easily costs 5k+ and a normal pc with a RTX 3090 wouldn't get close to these framerates or sustainable temperatures.

Who has a "normal" pc with a RTX 3090?

Yung-T36d ago (Edited 36d ago )

There's still a difference between a high-end GPU+CPU and a custom-made water cooling system including a Waterloop&pumps etc though, it allows for much higher performance due to the better temperature management that would fry the GPU&CPU with normal builds.

That's why people need to read the articles, most headlines are just to get you to click.

You would think yes, but honestly does it happen often 🤣 enough

I_am_Batman36d ago (Edited 36d ago )

Most of the threads of the 3950x were barely utilized and none of the games that were tested allocated more than ~12.5GB of system memory. Gaming at 8k is pretty much as GPU bound as you can get so you won't need a water cooled high-end CPU or 32GB of memory.

How does the cost of the PC make the headline misleading?

Mega powerful video card but the games you can play on that card are all available elsewhere. I want to see compelling pc only goty material titles ASAP

And where else can you run them in 8K or even in 4K with the same level of performance?

averagejoe2636d ago

Who cares? Nobody has 8k screens and the majority don't even have 4k screens.

This push for pointless high resolution is ruining progress. Give us better framerates, lighting, physics, etc. Stop wasting power on needles 8k.

lonewolf1036d ago


There are people with 8k monitors though.

And still we can't escape 30fps.

JCOLE1319536d ago

I mean given the fact the games are running at 8K it doesn’t surprise me...

DLSS 2.0 no doubt has a big part in this too, The Witcher 3, Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding run like a dream on my 3080, 4k ultra set to 60fps no drops or stutters and the system runs very quiet. Playing Borderlands 3 on badass settings, Red Dead or Division 2 on 4k ultra all run great (Red Dead has a few drops below 60fps) but my PC is working a lot harder on games that don't utilise DLSS, my room warms up nicely when playing those games.
