Guest Alex Bese Posted May 30, 2019 Share Posted May 30, 2019 Hey guys! So I want to build a GPU benching rig, and I'm really confused 'cause as I know, 3DMarks like fast intel cpus but mainly high-end gpus benefit from really good cpus. I saw a lot of great results with even 1st gen ryzens as well, like there was a guy with an i9 7980xe @5ghz with an rx570 in firestrike, and an other guy with a ryzen 5 1600 got better scores but also his gpu was clocked higher. So my question is: What cpu should I choose for these types of benchmarks? (I can't really afford a 9900k/9700k 'cause I'm a student in college with not a lot of money.) I've been thinking about 4770k, 4790k, 6700k, 7700k, 8600k/9600k (and maybe 8700k if the price is good) and also about Ryzen 7 1700. (maybe Ryzen 5 2600) I'll mainly bench older gpus and cheaper ones (like the 1060/1650 would be the max) so I don't really know what should I choose, maybe I'd be good with a 6600k/7600k too? (Of course when I finished I'll be benching newer stuff too, but right now I'm sticking with the cheaper stuff) Any suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
