I just though i d make a quick post about that cpu because before buying it, i was unable to find a single piece of reliable informtion about its performance on cata and such (FoW, modded realam etc.) after palying for 2 years with an i5 3570k at 4.0ghz and 8 (2x4, not dual channels) gb of DDR3 at 1333mhz. ( I guess this is some kind of feedback.)
My specs & settings:
I play mainly on low settings,1080p&60fps, using only 9 threads instead of 12, FXAA enabled, outline always one, all textures on high, anything that inst specified on this sentence means it s either set to off or low/lowest.
Ryzen 5 3600 goes up to 4.2 Ghz, 16 gb (2x8 dual channel) of DDR4 memory & 3’600 MZh max speed.
I reach 60 fps 24h/24h without any fps drop at anypoint, i m using a cheap cpu cooler atm and i dont break 60c while palying but the laoding screen can make my cpu reach 75c for about 1-2 sec. CPU load is extremely low (expected because of low settings).
Can keep constanly 144 fps (same settings as before) with some anecdotal drops. Need more testing but i m pretty sure it can hold constant 144 fps at 1080p.
