Hello gamers,
I recently bought new PC and I want to share interesting performance comparison in X:R game - with surprising result!

OLD PC Specification:

    CPU: Intel Xeon E5450 3.0@3.6GHz (for X:R 1.0 - 3.0 I has even older Intel Quad 6600 2.4@3.0GHz)
    RAM: 8GB DDR2 800MHz
    GPU: GForce 1060 6 GB GDDR5
    Resolution: 1680x1050


New PC (1.7.2018) Specification:

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 2600X (stock clocks 3.6GHz with boost till 4.2GHz)
    RAM: 16GB DDR4 3200MHz
    GPU: GForce 1060 6 GB GDDR5 (its GPU from old PC)
    Resolution: 1680x1050


I have some performance issues in X:R - for example in very big sectors (in late game) during battles FPS going down to 30 FPS. In less populated sectors and I has around 55-60 FPS.
Also cockpit entering animation was very stuttering - like 5-7 FPS.
When I started new game, scene where Yisha entering Skunk the FPS is about 45 FPS.
I know it was limited by CPU because GPU was used for 30% max. I was used to it and spent about 300 hours in Rebirth. Before I replaced Q6600 by Xeon E5450 performance was even worse, but still playable.

But after 11 years of use I finally decided to send that PC to Silicon Heaven and I bought latest 6 core Ryzen 2600X. I expected that improvements in architecture and with higher CPU clock will bring me about 50-60% more FPS.
But I was positively surprised (or shocked) that FPS in big sectors is now between 120-145, the same in scene with Yisha on Skunk aboard! Also cockpit entering animation sequence is very fluid now.

So conclusion is: Do not run X games on old CPU, even if that CPU is still working and you spent good times together. Performance increase 300% is worth money for new modern CPUs!


P.S: Others games benefits from Ryzen CPU as well but not that much as X:R game. Except Arma 3, that can use 6 cores - there is performance increase similar as in X:R.

Congratulations on your new purchase. But i have to disagree here, old doesn't equal slow. Slow equals slow. And while the Q6600 was a great cpu for its time it didn't age well, simply because Intel stopped trying only with the next generation.

For example RAM
Q9650 (your cpu): 8GB ram @ ~13GB/s <-2007
i7 1st gen: 48GB @ ~40GB/s <-2008
Ryzen: 64GB @ ~56GB/s <- 2017

You can see there is a massive jump, and then literally nothing happens during the next ten years.

The Q6600 isn't even a real quadcore. And, even worse, doesn't even support SSE4.2. Essentially that 1060 was massively bottlenecked. Because of the CPU used, not because it was old. So your conclusion is crap Razz

Since this is not really a request for X Rebirth Tech Sp, I'll move this to Off Topic.

Also be aware of this current thread which has discussed AMD Ryzen in passing.

Um, yes it is? It has four cores each with their own separate FPUs. It doesn't have Hyperthreading, if that's what you're thinking.

No. It´s 2 Core 2 Duo on one die. In Essence, a Multiprocessor setup.

Oh, and another Ryzen discussion thread is here for your reference too.
