Yes they do but there was no fps change.
Does the cpu psu cable connect to the psu port labled cpu and did you configure your power settings to HIgh Performance in windows control panel? Also you mentioned your friends FPS, are they running the same resolution monitor you are? You have 1440p, but if they run 1080p THAT would make a huge difference in performance.

I will try and put the resolution at 1080p 1920x1080 and se if it makes a difference.
 
There's no way i'm going to read through seven pages of this thread so anyone correct me if this has already been done. The next step is to confirm your friends hardware specifications including the resolution and refresh rate of his/her monitor.

And here is his spec

And he is running the game with 120+

And when i changed to 1920x1080 it made 0 difference.

My screen came with 2560 x 1440 at normal (Harwarde adapted)

And i cant change to 2560x 1080 i get thos black areas at the sides of the screen

That's why your FPS is lower! You are comparing apples to oranges. I don't think you have a problem and you aren't going to get an increase in fps due to cpu limitation from lowering the resolution. What fps do you currently get at 1440p?

He's using an i9 9700k which is going to out perform your 2700k by a significant margin in gaming. YOU DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM.

I just upgraded to a Ryzen 7 3800x as i said 1 or 2 pages back.

And here is another example.

Same processor with a 2060 card. Performing alot better then me. yes it at 1080 but when i put on the same resoluton it doesnt make a difference.

I just need some closure to this.
 
As gaming demands increase your system will start to do better due to superior multicore performance and especially playing higher res 1440p resoltions via the RTX 2080. Right now he's winning up front because the i9 9700k has superior single core performance that give's you higher up front FPS. I guarantee your system will have a smoother gaming experience with better 1% lows in fps.
