Fortnite CPU Benchmark – R5 2600, i5 8400 + More!

Scroll this

Fortnite is nice and easy to run but can also be quite demanding on the CPU when it comes to those higher framerates. So, how do different CPUs perform around 240fps?

  1. I just realized you should upload 60fps to YT. Theres always a lot of game footage, 60fps would look so good and would neatly compliment the clean aesthetics you setup for you channel.

    You do have the processing power to do it too.

  2. My 2600x paired with an Asus 1070 Strix runs Fortnite easily at 240 FPS on all high settings at 1080p.

  3. No actual good player will use shadows and all that fancy stuff. Playing with shadows is hard as balls to see people

  4. Why WHY THE FUCK this awful overhyped game let it die off please

  5. Max overclocked 2700x only on par with the gimped i3 8100 ROFL. No wonder AMD discounts their CPUs really fast as their stuff doesn't hold much value.

  6. Hey, great video as always! I know it's offtopic for this video, but I also really enjoyed your series on the Ncase. I just built my Ncase with similar spec to yours, only thing is I use the bare cooler of the Asus strix 1080 Ti. But my temps are like in the 20s higher than the temps you got on your card! Do you think this just comes from the Accelero you mounted on your GPU? I also use 120 mm Fans in the bottom as exhaust but they seem to be way less efficient..

  7. Thanks for the fantastic video again, Optimum. If you ever come up with some merchandise, I'd happily buy a shirt or hat to support you.

  8. i got an i5 6400 which cpu in this video is the equivalent ?

  9. i7-3770k at 4.4 Ghz with GTX 1070. Its fine Runs just as good as my Ryzen 5 1500X.

  10. What build with i5-8400 and Gtx 1060 6gb I should build? My budget is 800$! I dont know what motherboards I should use for this build!
