While benchmarks aren't everything, they clearly can help know if your system is running correctly or not. This past weekend I worked on a project some of my friends and I are doing benchmarking the various systems that we have at home and compiling the results into a Google Doc. The results for the most part are what you would expect, however, my main gaming rig has some major issues, at least based on the benchmark results. My system has the following specs: Ryzen 1700X running at 3.9 at 1.45v ASRock X370 Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming Corsair DDR4 4x16 GB running at 2666 EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 Corsair HX1050W PSU The system I'm comparing to, is very similar: Core i7 7700K at stock ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 Corsair DDR4 2x8 GB running at 2400 EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 Corsair 750W PSU My friend's system very handily beats mine at 1080p (which isn't a surprise given how Ryzen performs with 1080p) but both of us game at 1440p. Based on reviews I see online, both systems should perform very close for the most part at 1440p but our results show at least a 15-30% delta in most cases. Any thoughts as to why? If you need more info, let me know. Thanks for your help in advance!
