It was good to see someone using AMD gfx cards, as it seems everyone & their mutt uses 1080s or similar. Hardly giving a fair representative of gaming world.
I'd say keep it as a back up pc, or better still, use both at once ;)
Or is that just me & my rendering farm fantasies hehe.
Bet you're over excited for tomorrow.
P.S. If you've got Mad Max on steam, you can opt into open beta in settings to get Vulkan access. Apparently doubles the framerate 8D
I did rendering maybe some 20 years ago. Before Blender and with DOS-batch rendering software which took over 12 hours to render a simple scenery of 640x480 pixel. Was it on an AMD K6 350 MHz with 24 MB RAM or was it already on the Duron or even later on the Athlon, I don't know for sure. I just noticed now my last Intel CPU was the first Pentium 166 MHz back in the nineties. I was close getting another Intel just a year ago, but well ... ;-) I did not take long that I noticed that for the art of rendering, I am missing the creative talent. So I moved on to other things.
I do not have many recent Steam games. The last 2 years for me it's: what's not on GOG.com will not be played! With very few exceptions (namely FIFA and GTA). I just got a Steam-key for the ASUS board for the upcoming Bethesda game Prey, but I am not really into horror FPS, so may as well give it away at some point (although I have an Steam account with quit a lot of games). Obviously they have an AMD bundle at the moment: https://www.asus-promotion.de/prey
Of course I am excited for tomorrow and a bit worried that the expensive hardware shit will once again work after I put together. I have built so many rigs now and yet I am still nervous when I press the power button for the first time.
I'm similar. Any time I do anything to anyones computer/hardware of any sort, the "press on" time is panic time, but usually works out okay :D
I used to barely play games on my Amiga1200, spent rest of time rendering/doodling etc.
I recall once, taking a ridiculous amount of time to render a 600 frame animation of Babylon5 stuff on Lightwave.
Render tested again few years back, was rendering several frame a second on newer systems.
How times change 8D
Can't wait to test out a Ryzen set-up.
