As was mentioned to me, which I didn't even notice until they pointed it out, the fact that you had DSR enabled was probably the biggest problem out of all that was listed.
To be fair, enabling XMP did the most initially. Afterall, a 2070 is capable of 4k gaming. So I am quite surprised how well it did in some games when CPU wasn't bottlenecking.

To be fair, ppl are sheep. 1 bad mouthful of grass gets around to the whole flock in seconds. Which gets massively exaggerated until the whole pasture is affected.

The 2070 can handle 4k. For some games it'll do it easily, for many games. There's just a couple of games it really struggles with, which being sheep, affects all games. And being sheep, naturally they assume that anything that won't put out ultra settings at record setting fps is a mouthful of bad grass. Not realizing that 4k monitors are 60Hz, and they not only cannot see more than that, but physically they are unable to tell the difference between 100fps and anything higher.

Sheep tend to not have any basis in reality.

For instance, AIO's. If you look around the forums, any of the commonly used websites, there's always a ton of ppl who will happily chip in and claim not to use AIO's as a cpu cooler. They are loud and they leak and are more expensive than aircoolers. Only partly true. Ish. You'll also find that 99% of those unbelievers have never used an AIO, everything they spout is word of mouth from other unbelievers. Sheep just passing on idiocy.

Ppl claim you need a 2080ti to handle 4k. BS. Your 2070 will handle 4k just fine, all but a few ultra intensive, uber detailed games of which lowering some of the details won't change visuals much if any, but will be a big break on the gpu.

I'm implying most ppl don't have the foggiest clue about half the stuff they claim to know as fact.

The issue/claim here wasn't whether or not the 2070 can handle 4k. However if you have DSR on then at whatever resolution you ARE at you will not get the same frame rate. That was his problem, and that, partially is the solution.

Yes a 2070 can handle 4k, no you are not going to get the same framerate at 1080p (with the same detail settings) however with DSR to 4k on, vs off.
