Default Who's got a bad-*** PC?

Have you played Planet Coaster? My God. I'm currently getting around 2fps on a delidded, watercooled, 8700K running all 12 cores at 5GHZ, with my GTX 1080 overclocked to the moon. **** Crysis, this game is the hardware destroyer.

I've never had a game bring my machine to it's knees like this before, It's honestly kinda impressive.

You've got some pretty heavy hardware for a game to bring that to its knees. I just went to the Planet Coaster site, and the intro trailer thing does look pretty dense with animations/people/a lot going on though lol.

Are you playing in 4k or 1080?
If you are in 1080, like most game should be played, then it honestly sounds like a crappy game with terrible optimization.

Each guest in the park has it's own personality, needs, wants, etc. So once you start getting like 5000 guests, things start to chug a little bit. Now that I have over 15000 guests in the park I can actually hear my PC whimpering lol.

wtf? so are the game companies in bed with the hardware companies or vice/versa? I almost think they code the games JUST to peg the current hardware to force upgrades because the hardware market is so stagnent. like sending triple commands to the pipeline to clog it and then they say use this 6 channel ethernet input giga-god card and this and this to use it. but yet the console stay the course? yeah they suffer a little tiny bit shading and such but when you can play fortnite on a $300 xbone1 vs a $2k pc rig... something screams at you.

its like the whole samsung tv panel scandal of the late 00s where they price fixed. I feel like that ***** happening all over again with this garbage.

Was bad *** at the time.. 6700k,Z170pro,16gb of corsair 3000mhz,Strix 980ti,2 500gb Samsung 850 evo (for games), 1 256gb 850 Evo for Windows/launchers and 1 3tb Seagate Black for mass storage. Coupled to a Dell AW3418DW 3440x1440 Gsync.. Was bad as **** like 3 gens ago now??!!?? Still worth it to me since CPU performance only increases 10fps per gen and newest 2080ti isn't worth upgrading to at the price point..

That's crazy it loads and tracks so much all at once!
Does it gets a significantly better if you lower the graphics settings?
My guess is they are not reducing graphic load for objects that are 'supposed to be perceived as 'far away'. You get more visitors, your graphics takes a massive hit.

Uh thats not even close to the same thing. That is so far off.

it’s not like anybody has to buy this game. They choose to.

More like computer nerds specifically find software that stresses their hardware and use them as benchmarks. There are plenty of shitty games out there that just have flat out amazing graphics. They were designed specifically to showcase the latest and greatest capability you can have while gaming. Crysis is a perfect example of that. Everybody used it as a benchmark. Guess what, it wasn’t some computing hardware conspiracy, it was simply people that paid $1k for a video card that wanted to see what their rig was capable of and have some fun doing it. The game wasn’t all that good.
