Not true at all. CPU is the limiting factor when aiming for high fps. I can easily be CPU bound in games with my 1080 Ti at 1440p. Tested and tried. I have also tested several Ryzen rigs and have one myself, currently in my server tho. Performance was too weak for my gaming rig. I demand 100 fps minimum, pref 120+ and Ryzen can't deliver. I would NEVER buy Ryzen 1000 or 2000 series for a high fps gaming rig. Zen 2 hopefully will improve the lacking performance here, combined with faster memory. Please stop spreading missinformation. No AMD CPU currently out will match Intel in gaming when CPU is the limiting factor. It's a fact. Serious and competitive gamers are using Intel CPU's for a reason Frametimes are generally better with Intel. PC Perspective tested this not too long ago. Better 99th procentiles across the board. Tried emulating Zelda BOTW using CEMU on a Ryzen CPU...? Even old i5's will beat up 2700X here.
