Honestly I don't think it's that big of a deal.

Destiny 2 will only recognize the physical cores in an Ryzen processor whereas with an Intel processor it'll recognize cores and threads so I want to say this is a Bungie problem rather than a Windows problem especially when I can fire up any other game and they recognize how many cores and threads my processor has.

For folks like me who Freesync at 75hz and own modest hardware it's really a non-issue but for anyone else who has a high refresh setup they're going to be incredibly disappointed to know that their overclocked 1600s and 1700s are trailing a stock i3-7350k in a game which thrives on multicore processing at both 1080p and 1440p.

It's kind of a shit show for Ryzen/Polaris since the ultra preset has baked in nvidia gameworks too. If I ever had to put on a tinfoil hat and say it's purposely crippled because of the intel/nvidia influence then this will be it if it releases in the same state.

It ran at a solid 60fps at 4k with everything maxed (except AA one notch down, as MSAA was broken) on a i7-6700k and 1080ti.


What did you expect with a 1080ti? It would actually mean something if that's done on a 980 or something similar.
Sure, it's fast, but even with a 1080ti, many newer AAA games don't run so well at 4k. At least not at the highest graphics settings.

Did you fail to take into account the 2 additional REAL cores and not the hyper-threaded ones in the i3/pentium.

I erm don't look at minimum requirements tbh

So in 5 generations on the Intel side the speed needed has INCREASED 100Mhz???

Might download clock my 4670k from 4.5Ghz to 3.44Ghz just to hit the perfect speed

There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

The 1600x equivalent makes me wonder if they fixed the SMT issues with Ryzen...
Good question.
Confusing/Conflicting answers.
March 13, AMD response
March 14, extremetech attempts an explanation
March 9, windowsreport adds to the fud
April 10, Arstechnica weighs in

This is good news. The beta (*cough* demo) was very well optimized and I was afraid something would get borked before final release.

It ran at a solid 60fps at 4k with everything maxed (except AA one notch down, as MSAA was broken) on a i7-6700k and 1080ti.

The beta was a lot of fun. I never played the first Destiny, since playing a FPS with a potato controller gives me cancer, so I'm really looking forward to this.

You will thoroughly enjoy it if you never played the first. If you did play the first it's a big DLC to D1. That's not bad just saying if you put in a few hundred hours into D1 you are not missing anythign with this version.

Plus the raids are easy, don't expect WoW or Rift level progression or mechanics.
