4K 144fps you say???

"Okay guys so here it is, I spent $200 on the case and $100 on rgb fans, I had a threadripper cpu laying around and my mates gave me his old 3090's lol so I sli them. I found 64gb of 4000mhz ram and the psu is from my old 3080 build, anyway don't forget to like and subscribe, hit the notication button."

The funny thing is that even then you probably can't get 144fps 4k in the heaviest games on max settings

ID: gu30wvl

That will always be the case. The graphics in a game are to a large degree held back by the available hardware. Graphical options in games improve as GPU power improves. Developers put options in their games that only the best and/or future hardware can run. So it's not really an argument that the best hardware can't run the most demanding games at settings meant to be used on future hardware. Just look at Crysis as an example. That game couldnt be run at max settings by the best hardware for years after its release hence the meme.

the even funnier thing is, you cant even get 144fps at 1440p with that in most game. it probably at around 100-120 fps for most game except game like Overwatch or CSGO

ID: gu39cap

I have a 3090, 10900k in a maximus apex with 4000 Ram and at 4k I get about a smooth 70fps, but dare turn up view distance or look into vastly large areas or that shit drops.

But on a 1440 monitor 144 fps is awesome with the setup, 4k is overrated.

Wait are the 3k series cards capable of SLI? I thought they killed that off.

ID: gu3ncif

3090 is the only model of the 3k series that can SLI

ID: gu3i6gu

ironic thing is, this is probably exactly what the video is lol

If it's legit pulling 4K144 in a broad swathe of games, why would you say it's a Series S killer and not a complete next gen killer?

ID: gu34cdy

As someone with a $8k computer. It can't pull 4k 144fps on the latest games (max settings). Not even on Witcher 3.

ID: gu36p06

This is why I game at 1080 on my $2k computer... I built it almost three years ago and usually pull 80-120 fps in most games. I'm going for endurance more than performance lol.

ID: gu380d9

can confirm. spent too much on my PC to try and hit witcher 3 at 4k60 (a few generations ago). I missed the goal, but have been super happy with what I built

ID: gu3j6rt

What are your specs? I just tested mine at 4k ultra on the Witcher3 and I was getting 120-135frames with mods that increase texture resolution among other post-processing effects. Nowhere near 8k dollar computer here, I cant even imagine what that would look like unless you have some high dollar server CPU and youre including the price of your gaming chair, beats headphones and the improvement you made to your house?

I swear it was $300, I just had to find the motherboard, RAM, a 10th gen i9 and a 3080 in a garbage can!

ID: gu2x104

psh, "i9"

ID: gu2y890

I mean it was in the garbage 😛

If you watch the video, he buys secondhand parts, ones that are multiple generations old even.

His claims though, are dubious about 4k 144

ID: gu3is6m

It’s kidna what I was joking about; that always seems to be the way it goes. “Yeah you can totally get this PC for $X you just have to get ridiculously lucky with secondhand parts” despite most people never being able to get that lucky. Hell around here $300 won’t even get you a 970 usually let alone a whole computer.

it can easly play 144 fps on games from 2004 and before!

ID: gu2ldry

You mean mine sweeper and solitaire

ID: gu2qnks

Don't you dare diss solitaire!

ID: gu2htn9

Would those games even have 4k resolution options?

ID: gu34drg

A lot of older games use the available desktop resolutions so many will yes.

6 : Anonymous2021/04/10 17:36 ID: gu2a3w7

Even my $2000 PC can't play games at a locked 4K 144Hz unless I floor the settings or the game is ten years or older.

And that was when you could buy GPUs at MSRP.

ID: gu3h3zk

Unless it's Rocket League.

You need to overclock your entire PC man, I'm telling you. I built my PC entirely from that video. I can now see the universe how it is supposed to be seen. Tech Yesterday completely changed my entire perspective on the universe and it's inhabitants.

I am one with the universe.

7 : Anonymous2021/04/10 18:04 ID: gu2dj3j

to be absolutely fair, it can and it will hit those values, albeit never at the same time!

you can either get 144fps playing 640x360 or you can get 4k running at 0.8fps

8 : Anonymous2021/04/10 18:25 ID: gu2fxup

Its valid if they stole everything from a warehouse and only paid for the case.

9 : Anonymous2021/04/10 20:02 ID: gu2r4yg

lol, even my 1660 Ti which is a 1080p card is going for over 700 bucks these days. You aren't building any kind of cheap PC anymore. Shit has been completely fucked since the 30 series came out.

10 : Anonymous2021/04/10 17:19 ID: gu2822y

It has an option for 4k..... But the games it plays are Asteroid and Pacman.

11 : Anonymous2021/04/10 18:18 ID: gu2f46c

Im sure it can play videos at 4k 144fps

12 : Anonymous2021/04/10 19:55 ID: gu2qddu

Console gamers gaming above 60fps at 4K (upscale obv), make sure you check your TV can even DO that. Most 4K TVs that are under $1000 lock 4K resolution to 60hz or lower.

13 : Anonymous2021/04/10 20:29 ID: gu2uaai

Doesn't say which console, might mean the PS2.

14 : Anonymous2021/04/11 00:45 ID: gu3mceq

Pff, amateur, I paid only $30 on mine.

It was the cab fare after I learned how heavy the PC I just stole was.

15 : Anonymous2021/04/10 20:40 ID: gu2vhyn

Nether this PC or the current consoles can do 4K 144 FPS simultaneously.
Even a flag ship PC cant do 144 Hz at 4K.

16 : Anonymous2021/04/10 17:22 ID: gu28fj7

I have no doubt Windows Desktop will display at a solid 144hz. 🙂

If you're playing MS Paint, then sure.

ID: gu2rrln

playing MS paint lol

ID: gu2xmho

I mean didn't all us old cats play on ms paint back in the days?

18 : Anonymous2021/04/10 22:17 ID: gu36gz6

even just buying the gpu that can do that, you are spending well over $300 and that is not even considering all the other parts you need.

19 : Anonymous2021/04/10 22:42 ID: gu395sn

You guys are just misinterpreting it. It can do 144 fps perfectly in 240p. And 4K with 2 fps is also perfectly possible.

20 : Anonymous2021/04/10 23:03 ID: gu3bdwx

For 300$ you could afford that case maybe

21 : Anonymous2021/04/10 23:36 ID: gu3etqb

I have a computer with old parts that last I checked, cost about 200 dollars. It runs basically anything I'd want just fine. Either on ultra or high. It' not absurd to build a computer cheaply that can play basically anything.

That said, it's not a high framerate, 4k machine. Think of it like a console mid life. And that's fine. If I can run most things in the 60s on high, I'm fine.

There's two sides to this. This video is clearly misleading, but I also avoided building for a while because I over how much money it'd cost to build a computer that'd play what I wanna play on it.

22 : Anonymous2021/04/10 19:00 ID: gu2jybt

That's clearly fake but is this a targetted attack to pc just curious?

ID: gu2lziv

It's hardly an attack. It's a clickbaity scam to get your click for ad revenue

ID: gu34vwy

It helps that the narrative for years was that you could game better on a custom-built PC for the same price as a console... Which isn’t always untrue.

23 : Anonymous2021/04/10 19:13 ID: gu2ljr1

I ended up actually watching the video and TECHNICALLY the title is legit, what the guy meant was it can run most games at 144fps and also has 4k capabilities. When it comes to the build itself i would say its actually pretty good for the price.

ID: gu2lnyj

Ah right - I still doubt it is a “console killer” though lol

ID: gu2sm7v

It's honestly pretty easy to 'kill' a console with PC builds of comparable value (before the GPU shortages), but with consoles you're buying into the eco system and the simplicity... so it really depends on why you're buying a console in the first place. If performance matters to you, you should essentially always be building a PC
