Hey all,

So we have got a chance at doing a gaming performance roundup for one of the top end Nvidia RTX 3090 series GPU. The question is what games would you like to see tested ?

We will be testing the following suite of games:

3D Mark Various Tests   
Control 
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020   
Metro Exodus  
Doom Eternal   
Crysis Remastered  
Crysis Original (For comparison against remastered )
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider 
Red Dead Redemption 2   
Battlefield 5 

As an added bonus for all those who participate in the Folding@Home project, we will also be monitoring over a 24 Hour period what an RTX 3090 can do!

We would love to know what YOU the people would like to see and why !

Have your say !

All the best,
E

Until Cyberpunk hits, some MS Flight Simulator 2020 ?

Well I can now confirm we will be covering the Folding@Home performance on the RTX 3090. 😛

Thanks for all the additional recommendations guys. We are still a little delayed on the sample we were going to work with for this roundup but we are hoping to get to it as soon as possible

Red Dead Redemption 2. That really uses a lot of GPU power. I struggle at 4K 30fps on mostly high with an RTX 2070.

 

The new flight sim game as well, that's incredibly demanding at higher graphics settings.

Yes RDD2 is a great candidate and I assume you mean the new MS Flight Sim 2020 ?

Yeah I do, people with review copies and 2080Tis are getting 20-30fps maxed out at 4K.

Ouch Yowzer ! However we all knew that "Game" would stress most high end components.

This is going to be a fun and informative thread ! :cool:

 

I am particularity interested in fast scenery-change games, like flight sims and racing games on ultra graphics / 4K, and NVLink-capable (CFR even better). Here's my short list:

 

MS Flight Simulator 2020

Various Crytek- engine games (does Ampere' play Crysis ?', hehe)

Metro Exodus

RDR2

Various 'Need for Speed' (good to stress graphics at speed), may be also The Crew 2, Forza Horizon 4.

 

BTW, most of the above work with NVlink/SLI (some even with the future 'CFR' rather than just 'AFR'). Also, my 2x w-cooled 2080 Ti run at between 2145 and 2205 on NVlink, so for now, I don't feel the rush to buy Ampere on release but instead look at threads such as this to figure out what / when to buy.

 

Speaking of 2080 Ti NVlink, here are two vids for RDR2 @ 4K ultra :D

I'm sorry to bring the bad news, but NVLink/SLI won't be scaling in games, nVidia has been killing it off in gaming, the same is true about AMD's Crossfire.

Yeah, multi-GPU has been dying for some time now. Getting more than one GPU for gaming these days is just a waste.

 

 

...I respectfully disagree with generalizations like that - which I see repeated often enough on the internet. It is true that SLI/NVLink support in some games as well as scaling can be issues, but I run four machines (2x 1080P, 2x 4K) which all have SLI or NVLink, and I have encountered few problems, at least in the games I play. I add though that some of these machines are also used for productivity with their dual cards, so my approach - and experience in tuning mGPU- is different to begin with.

 

More importantly, NVidia quietly introduced drivers that support NVlink CFR only last fall (as opposed to just AFR). This is so because post-Ampere, mGPUs will play a much bigger role (similar to AMD's multi-chiplet approach about to be joined by Intel next gen CPUs.). NVidia would not introduce mGPU CFR w/o a reason, and I put a related thread up on this forum > here.

 

I am not suggesting that SLI/NVLink is problem free or enjoys support everywhere, but it certainly is 'not dead', and mGPU setup fans can particularly look forward to next gen. But even with current gens, you already saw the above NVLink RDR2 video links. Now, here is a Metro Exodus one @ 4K / max settings comparing a single Titan RTX vs dual Titan RTX (on CFR), including w/ frame times. In general, NVLink (AFR, CFR) may not scale perfectly, but if it means an extra 20-30 FPS in 4K to put the game at or above 60 FPS instead of 30 FPS or below, I'll take it.

Oh, yeah I know it's not dead, but it's getting there. There really aren't a lot of games that support it anymore with the list of games that do support it getting smaller and smaller.

...4K must be a different planet, I guess. RDR2 and Metro Exodus are fairly new, and I'm happy they fully support NVLink; w/o it, I couldn't play 4K max ultra at decent frame rates (my monitor is 40 inch 4K @ 72 Hz). The NFS series also supports it, and Crytek thrives on it. I have no idea how MS Flight Sim 2020 deals with it yet, but all other games I play support it, so 'rumours of its death are greatly exaggerated' ;) In fact, I also re-link this re. the mGPU future outlook:

Multi-GPU still lives, but as I said before, its niche.

 

Unfortunately the cost of a second GPU heavily outweighs the benefit at this stage. My new GPU will be a single setup as not enough games utilize a multi GPU setup in order to make the investment worth it, at least for myself.

 

Now chiplet design GPU,s have already been suggested by AMD and we may see this next gen or gen afterwards (Not RDNA 2)

 

Now in the interest of this thread, we will only be testing a single Nvidia 3000 series GPU, any gleamings of this will give you a rough platform to extrapolate multi gpu.

...yeah, I just wanted to know if games supported NVLink w/Ampere, I didn't suggest it was a 'must' with my list above, before this went sideways a bit re. generalizations. Anyhow, here is my list again for Ampere testing:

 

 

MS Flight Simulator 2020

Various Crytek- engine games (does Ampere' play Crysis ?', hehe)

Metro Exodus

RDR2

Various 'Need for Speed' (good to stress graphics at speed), may be also The Crew 2, Forza Horizon 4.

 

...and I like to add:

 

Doom Eternal

AND: When the time comes for its release: Cyberpunk 2077

Oh yeah, Cyberpunk is a good one. I forgot about that game. I've been meaning to buy it. Forza Motorsport 8 some time at the end of this year as well assuming it doesn't get delayed. It should have a free demo with benchmarking in.

I'd like to see Far Cry 5 @ 4k ultra w/ HD textures.. So far that game has been a pretty good overall performance indicator for me (as long as CPU bottlenecks are avoided)

 

Aida64 GPGPU benchmark too

Far Cry 5 is a great addition, too. Re. the Aida64 GPGPU benchmark, benchmarking in general would also be interesting (3DM, Unigine etc) unless this is just focused strictly on games)

some higher demanding titles that esports play for 144 fps @ 1440p would be good also, like PUBG and R6:Seige. Then I think of a bit lesser known games like Hunt:Showdown. Also Minecraft RTX is a must.

Thanks for the feedback so far guys, some great suggestions. What I will say is that Cyberpunk will be a little on the late side and is unlikely to be included.

...so for now, more subsistence on YouTube trailers :angry_suck_kr:

If possible we can do a revisit with Cyberpunk in mind, will see what we can do on that front.

...yeah, no rush, Cyberpunk won't be out in time anyway. However, your game performance thread wouldn't just go away either, perhaps later, other cards such as RDNA2, Big Navi etc could also be added if available for testing.

 

Ditto for this $199k special (half price and more performance than the previous version - what a deal)..8x A100 GPUs, 2x 64c/128t Epyc CPUs - personally, I would water-cool that thing :D

Why's that? There's a lot of rumours going around that one of the reasons why Cyberpunk got delayed again is because it's supposed to be included in a "bundle" when you buy a new RTX 3000 card. CDPR do seem to have some sort of deal going on with nVidia.

Starswarm may be interesting to run on the new cards also. It's the engine that was used for Ashes of The Singularity and uses multiple cpu and gpu cores quite well. My 1st generation RTX2070 with a Ryzen 7 2700x @ 3.9Ghz on all cores gets an average of 70 fps in the test. 76730fd2d532.jpg
