Rise of the Tomb Raider & The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider has long been a thorn in Ryzen's side due to architectural eccentricities. Recent game patches have cleared up most of the inexplicable anomalies, thankfully.
The tuned 1950X fares well, beating our overclocked Threadripper 1920X sample. All of these CPU deliver a smooth experience, though.
We continues to observe that telltale AMD frame rate behavior at the end of the benchmark as it becomes more CPU-intensive, even from the Threadripper models.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
That large frame time spike in the benchmark's early section is a scene transition. All of our contenders suffer from it to some extent, though AMD's Threadripper 1950X stumbles most.
Intel's Core i7-7700K remains the processor to beat.
