I might put up test results for comparison with my current 2700x.
I was originally worried that my (our) boards wouldn’t provide enough power for the 12 and 16 core parts, but amazingly they managed to keep the TDP to 105w, so we should be able to handle it. Craziness.

I don’t do a lot of multicore heavy work, so I’m leaning toward the 3800X myself. It costs $100 less, and at the same TDP but with 4 fewer cores, I’m hoping it will have additional boost / overclock headroom to eek out some extra single core performance.

PS: I wonder if the 8 core parts will be on one fully enabled chiplet, or 2 half enabled ones... with the cache dropping from 64 in the 3900X to 32 in the 3800X, I suspect it will be just one chiplet. This should lower inter core latency, but I wonder what effect it will have on overclocking?

The Crosshair vi will take even a 16 core, my fear is the Power supply when all cores are overclocked

is there any advantage for us that are already at or over 5.0Ghz?

Hard to say until there are actual benchmarks I would guess. Also, depends on how many cores and, for DCS, when Vulcan comes out how well we get to use extra cores if I read the leaves right.

I'm seriously looking at a R5 3600, I have the R5 1600 now, and it performs quite nicely OCed to 3.5ghz in DCS VR, but a little extra boost would be welcome.


(I have never built a system for myself using Intel, overpriced for what you get IMHO).

The "x" model goes to 11.

depends on the number of cores you have. If you are on a 8700K or above, its too soon to upgrade.

Im not aiming for a sensible upgrade, its just for fun.

Well you got robbed by Intel already so not really

The point of the new Ryzen is to have a cpu as good as what you have or just slightly better at best but for 249$ instead of 500$+ and the additional money you probably had to spend for cooling that o/c cpu to 5ghz.

It helps people who want to spend more on the gpu instead to see a real increase of performance in gaming overall, not just the cpu.

probably my next cpu will be a 3600 after 9 years with 2500k/2600k

. I have an I5-660k @ 4.4 which runs great. But with VR it hits 100% usage pretty easily, and once I upgraded to the Index it's starting to chug.

I might jump on this AMD train.
