ryzen 1500, 16gb of 3200 MHz ram, the 2070, Asrock ski killer X370
its your cpu
damn, i was afraid that it might be that. looks like I know what I'm buying on payday lol
oh no sorry i have the 1500x i forgot to add the X but it isn't that much better so
Can you expand on what you mean by being "held back?"
like I will play games on ultra 1080p and it barely gets over 60 fps and sometimes dips down below 60. it really annoys me lol.
That is odd - a 1500X should be able to maintain 60+ in just about any title. Some CPU heavy games (Assassin's Creed) have a bunch of DRM that just destroy CPU performance. Have you check that temps are all good, RAM is running at stated speeds, etc?
