depends on which game i mean i can feel when it drops under 30fps like how it did in shadow of the tomb raider also assassins creed origins had a lot of small 1sec frezess in it while textures were loading while now i have no problems idk is it bec of all the updates it got after i first time played it or is it becouse of faster ram idk

To fully answer that question, you'd have to have the old setup run the same games and compare them to your new rig.


Anything else would be guesswork.
But all in all, I'm glad you've gotten a better experience with your new rig and I hope you enjoy it for many years.

Stock or overclocked? For a gtx 1080, even when running stock 9700k should run games smoothly without bottlenecks.

I remember some years back I was saying even humble Core i3 cannot bottleneck high-end gpus, because of devs not being able to effectively make use of additional cpu cores - apparently new games are able to use even 6 physical cores :)

cloning OS drive is definitely NOT smooth with Windows, so you might just do clean install anyway to avoid any accumulated bloat?

anyway if you OC your cpu to around 5ghz and sort out your gpu temps and alco OC that to around 2000 mhz you will get another 10-15% performance

this comparison is a little rushed as i didnt want to replay games so i spend limited time in each which is the reason why i gave only average fps, even tho i5 6600k has 40+fps most of the time in thos games there were moments where it will just drop down under 30 or even 20fps, while i7 9700k fps was stable whole time i was playing


damn this really shows in For Honor how theyr "improwed visual overhoul" suck
