    Zen 2 is still very capable, here are some quick tests I did with my oculus CV1, with opencomposite installed. I upgraded from my 4770k@4.4GHz 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 :D 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.

    I've watched many reviews and banchmarks/ gaming performance and found that high end Ryzen vs i9 9900k is closely matched. An i9 has little bit better performance for gaming. However, when it comes to the production performance, Ryzen shines over Intel and it beats the crap out of it.
    I will go with intel (only because I always used Intel and feel more comfortable) unless the cost is significantly higher. We shall see the price drop from intel side since Ryzen is better value for money.

    Is it advisable to turn these on with the stock cooler? Because the peak temperature can be pretty high on the 3700X with the stock settings already so I'm not so sure about it. Everyone recommends the Noctua DH-15 for the new Ryzens, but judging by its size it would be a pain in the arse to install it into my case.:D

    Anyway, I only bought 3200 MHz RAMs, maybe that was a small mistake, because according to the official recommendations, the sweet spot is around 3600.

    I also bought 3200cl14 memory, overclocked to 3600 :D and yeah I have a dark rock pro 4 cooler, even with that completely overkill cooler it goes to 70c in stress tests, 7nm makes the heat really hard to get out of the cpu quickly, and I have the lowest end chip..

    I think I found quite a good benchmark to test potential raceroom performance :D I've been using Unigine Heaven in dx9 mode, on the lowest res (640x360) on ultra. This completely eliminates the GPU bottleneck for pretty much any mid-high end GPU, so it really is about CPU performance. With my 4770k@4.4 and 2400CL11 DDR3 I got 278 fps average, with my Ryzen 3600 with just pbo (no autoOC, about 4.2ghz), with 3600CL14 DDR4 I got 348 fps average! :D
