no, far from it, i never buy a newly released processor or any component, for several reasons, mostly the price which is too high but also i dont want to become a beta tester or lab rat, i always let the product be in the market for at least 6 months in case there are any design defects….etc

i have at the present a 3900X and i plan to upgrade in the next spring but with 3950X which i will buy alot cheaper than 5950X while having similar performance

Timisoara, Romania
3900X 3.8 Ghz 12 cores, 64GB RAM DDR4 3000Mhz, Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe

AMD 3rd Gen Threadripper packaging leaked: Outlandish style for an outstanding chip It was expected that the red team would announce the latest Threadrippers on November 5, but the latest rumor has now specified November 7 as the best bet for a Threadripper-related reveal. VideoCardz believes the packaging could be for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X (24 cores) and Threadripper 3970X (32 cores) SKUs.


The AMD’s latest Threadripper 3990x processor is the new king. but to get the most out of this beast processor, you will need to pair it with the right motherboard.

Hey there!

I recently just did a big overhaul on my gaming PC and am having an issue.

My previous setup was an i7-6700k (OC’ed @ 4.5 GHz), MSI Gaming M7 z270, an MSI Gaming RTZ 2070 Super, and 32 GB (3200 MHZ) Vengeance LPX RAM.

However, I purchased a Ryzen 7 5800x (OC’ed to 4.9GHZ) and an Aorus x570 Ultra (along with a new cooler and case) and kept the same drives, RAM and PSU.

With my previous setup, I was running Borderlands 3 at around a solid 90-120 FPS, however, with this new setup, I am getting anywhere from 60-70 FPS. I ran an in-game benchmark and got (with my previous setup) 99.xx AVG FPS. I ran the same in-game benchmark with my new build and my new AVG is 75. xx FPS.

Along with this I benchmarked both my CPU and GPU (just to make sure nothing changed) and got very close results with similar builds.

I thought the new Zen 3 Ryzen’s had better single-core performance? I also get lower FPS in modded Skyrim and Dying Light.

If anyone has any idea why this might be happening, let me know!
