It could be, as well, that my previous platform was somehow holding back my 3090 a little, which is why I’m seeing such a spike.While the 4090 does feel like a mighty leap over the previous gen cards, I think the current crop of new releases have hampered that. Too many games are getting released in a state where even a 4090 stutters or runs them like trash. Plus, with the vast majority of titles, the 3090 could already run them cranked at 4K/100+ FPS, especially with DLSS. It absolutely shines with some titles, but the gaming landscape is holding everything back.
That said, I wish I’d built this new PC earlier. I thought my previous system was doing just fine - but actually it wasn’t, and I’m only seeing that now.
