Picked up a 5800x3D and a 6900XT XFX Merc 319 Black in the last month. Both of them seem to be under-performing by 10%+ in Cinebench and Timespy compared to what I can find for averages elsewhere on the same hardware. No issues with thermal throttling as both components are staying nice and cool. I have a Corsair HX850 which is the minimum recommended PSU by XFX and I have several SATA drives and extra fans adding onto that, could this be affecting my performance numbers? At the end of the day, it's not a huge deal, but I want to see if it is symptomatic of a potential issue. My UPS also had an overload protection warning when running Heaven benchmark so I am swapping that out for a larger one as well.
