1440P, ultrawide 144hz

Hi all, i am thinking to get a ultrawide monitor 1440p 144hz. Which CPU is better 2700x or 3700x? Is 3700X is worth nearly extra 150USD ?

Thanks

The 3700X. The CPU is really more important than the GPU when it comes to high FPS goals. Graphical settings are adjustable, you can get the same FPS with a 1160 Ti as you can with a 2070S or something, the difference will be in the settings. However there really isn't much you can do to make up for CPU performance.

On that resolution (3440x1440), a 2700X would be more than enough.

No need to spend more on a 3700X.

Spend the extra money on a better (faster) GPU. That would be worthwhile. :)

You're assuming that he will stick to ultra settings and not be targeting 144FPS.

You know 3440x1440 is more than 2560x1440 pixel wise.

And according to this, (that may or may not be true), at 3440x1440 the difference between a 3700X vs 2700X would be even less. ;)

Last but not least, he didn't say that he wants to play at ultra settings (so that's fair enough), but he didn't state that he wants to play at lower settings either. :-P

Besides, playing at medium settings and spending a lot of money on a ultra wide monitor + CPU, i don't know if that would make any sense. ¯\(ツ)

Also something else. Even at 720p (that stresses the processor at most), even then the difference isn't more that 10%

Now considering the 3700X costs $150 more, i don't know if that would be the best idea to go with.

But yeah, the OP may have other plans in mind.

That's becasue benchmarks just keep the settings on max, it turns any "CPU" benchmark basically into a GPU one very often at 1440P max settings since most of the time you will be GPU bound but in reality you can get the same FPS as you do at 1080P if you adjust the settings. As for how much adjusting you need to do that will vary game to game and the hardware in question. Sticking to max keeps the benchmark simple but its not realistic if you have a certain FPS goal since you would be adjusting your settings to meet your FPS goal .
