In short, our wallets are the bottleneck
haha...good one fry! ...true.
Well just personally as someone who's still clinging on to an overclocked 2600k paired with a gtx1080 this was very helpful
Any measurable performance drop is un excusable and the only excuse being to make code cracker's work harder because of irrational fears. GOG seems to profit just fine, I'm not paying to have DRM because of irrational fear.
I upgraded last year from a 2600k running at 5ghz-ddr1866mhz to a 7700k 5ghz-ddr4133mhz... those who think the 2600k is enough are very wrong, cpu utilization is not a good indicator. I kept my 980ti for some time before upgrading to a 1080ti, XCOM2 for example saw an average increase of 50%, even though the 2600k would never go over 60% utilization. Even games that didn't show an obvious FPS increase became smoother, frametimes with the 2600k were fluctuating all over the place, with the 7700k they all are smooth as butter... Sadly hilbert didn't have time to add frametimes to his retro review...
i got 2600 non k paired with a rx570 it it is only a decent budget cpu but it isnt enough for max settings i think latest gen 6 core is pretty mandatory now if you want to keep min fps high and low frame times at 1080. waiting to see what zen 2 offers and whether or not intel will innovate instead of just re branding. it hard to justify 10% gain but buy complete new computer i need threadripper 2 at consumer prices lmao. better to just buy a 1080 because rx570 1050ti both still gpu bound in a lot of titles. overall though i dont want to lose performance DRM is waste of resources.
Performance aside here's a good video on the subject of games being set up to eventually be unplayable by anyone ever again
here go the LoadTimes......
conclusion: YES, denuvo does impact loading times, at least on the tested games..(3 out of 4) or was it 4 out of 5? anyway, yes it does....
You must have security clearance to play this Game!
"..not enough for max settings..". wat?
the higher you crank the settings, the less cpu perf is an issue (outside high fps @1080p, and really really old cpus)
