    It was a gpu limited test - 10900K.
    I also have access to Ryzen 5 3600 and a 3900x

    Control at 60fps is not taxing the mobile Zen 2 CPUs (8MB cache at 3.5ghz) even a little? A scene GPU limited on a 10900k running at 5ghz might not be GPU limited on those consoles CPUs. And the Ryzen 5 3600 has 32MB of L3 cache. You really should consider testing those games with a similar mobile Zen 2 CPU if you want to really compare the GPU and not a combination of CPU + GPU.

    Why would I do that? The most common CPUs on PC are not mobile ryzen Parts! Steam HW survey Puts the 3600 at immense popularity!

    So, uh...is this good or bad? xD

    ...guess Control is kind of like the Red Faction of 8th-gen from what I'm seeing. Everything being destructible at a moment's notice, I actually would prefer more games push for that level of interactivity at the AAA space than simply pushing prettier visuals, even if some settings have to be toned down to make it so.

    no need for using mobile cpu but for gpu comparison probably better to use ryzen 3600 than intel 10900k (tough I know you testing gpu limited scenes)

    I really don't think the CPU is a limitation here:

    means PS5 is on par with 4-500dollars cards, not bad for the price.

    Ignoring this graph (which is great), I believe the corridor of death was a GPU limited test that Alex has been using for some time. IIRC There's nothing really going on there except RT, Volumetrics etc.

    Great video!

    I wish posters who make no effort to understand what's being tested or how computers work would ask less pointed/leading questions, half of this thread is brushing aside conspiracy theories.

    Well, it performs around RTX2070/5700XT, just as expected.

    Depends on where you reside i think then. RX5700XT/RTX2070 class gpus aint 5000 dollars where i am atleast. Their old.
    Aside, a 2070 is going to give you better RT; and in case of DLSS, much better performance (which would be stupid to not use at this point).

    RT performance on rdna2 is bad. These aren’t very powerful gpu’s. You get what you get.

    That's a bit harsh, isn't it? Don't forget that most journalists (yes, even gaming journalists) started off from a love of writing. And taking some liberties while writing an article is a completely natural creative aspect of the job, even if they may state the obvious at times.

    The Series X dropping frames when the game is putting up large caption text is the weirdest thing ever. Moving around the level? I get it. Lots of things on screen? I get it. Cutscenes starting? I get it. Use of a big font? Ummm..
