Zen 2 is still very capable, here are some quick tests I did with my oculus CV1, with opencomposite installed. I upgraded from my email@example.comGHz with 2400CL11 DDR3 to a Ryzen 3600 with 3600CL14 DDR4. Turned on PBO and autoOC to get 4.15GHz all core clocks and 4.3-4.4GHz single core clocks. looked at frametimes while sitting in the pits of some tracks and looking straight ahead. These are the improvements I got: Zandvoort: 4.2ms -> 3.8ms Spa: 4.8ms -> 4.2ms Nords 24h: 8.2ms -> 6.2ms Nords: 6.5ms -> 5.5ms to get a harsher load I loaded 20 AI and looked out of my window at all of them in the pits: Zandvoort looking at 20 AI: ~13ms -> ~10ms (and very smooth compared to 4770k which had a lot of framedrops when another car gets into view) Honestly it was more of an improvement than I expected, and I haven't even overclocked my 1080ti yet which I did have for my 4770k tests I think the RAM might be the key, I already upgraded from 1600MHz to 2400MHz on my 4770k and got a significant boost back then.
