I am running a AMD FX-4300/4-core with 16GB/DDR3 and GTX-1070/8GB. I converted to Vulkan recently but now see that the CPU is always running at 70-75% standing on the runway (example C172) . I am driving 3 (1920x1080) HDMI or DP screens (Main and 2 popouts for GNS430+530) Should it be this high? 2. Is a CPU upgrade (30% possible with a FX6350/6 core) worth it? This is the max that the AM3+ socket supports 3. Or is is time for an update to AM4 (say Ryzen7/8-core?) What do the Nerds have to say / recommend? Particularly in respect of the work-in-progress at Laminar to make more use of multicores after the change from OpenGL to Vulcan
Requirement: # 1440p single display # DCS 2.5 # X-Plane11 Considering the following build although I might wait for prices of the 2600X and X470 boards to come down a bit (... as for RAM - we live in hope!): # CPU Ryzen 5 2600X (not planning to OC since gains seem marginal) # M/B Asus Prime X470-Pro # RAM Corsair LPX 32GB (2X16) DDR4-3200 # GPU GTX1070 under £400 or GTX1080 under £500 ??? # Display 27" 60Hz or 32" LED TV ??? # SSD Samsung 860 Evo 500GB (OS + sims) # PSU Corsair RM750x or reuse 6+ yo 850W PSU ??? # Case reuse Cooler Master CM690II ??? All thoughts on this welcome, particularly interested in getting the right GPU for this build. Space limitations mean multi-monitor probably a no no, waiting for next gen VR.
