I'd wait for AMDs keynote tomorrow before purchasing this gen.

Absolute BS. A 3800X is around £320, a good X570 (Asus TUF) is currently £165. Together they cost only £20 more than just the 9900k on its own. A decent Z390 board is £150.

That's also not accounting for the MSI B450 Max boards, you can get a Tomahawk Max for £100. Making that motherboard and the 3800X, less than just the 9900K.

The 3800X is at worst 95% as powerful in cinebench compared to the 9900k. Paying £195 for 5% performance seems crazy to me, but I guess if you have money to burn (and a love of security flaws).

The next gen aren’t due until the 3rd or 4th quarter and with intel having nothing new due there is no reason for that to change.

i'm in no rush at present, as my next build will be for a Hackintosh anyway.
Excellent price - if it wasn't for Amazon refunding £49 to my card for an incorrect Borderlands 3 code, which came with my 3700X, I'd have paid about the same.

For productivity, the 3800X offers about the best value for a multi-threaded CPU.
What's the warranty like

What's the warranty like


From their website:

"AMD provides up to three (3) year limited warranty on its line of processors sold through the AMD Processor in a Box Program. Your vendor will generally provide warranty service for the first 30 to 90 days, after which warranty service will be provided by AMD for the remainder of the warranty"

Really does depend on the price of the 3700X as there's not much between them performance wise in most cases, the only reason I ended up with a the 3800 was due to a bundle offer with a motherboard.

Also the 3800x can run quite hot depending on what the board is doing with the voltages, some boards seem to want to boost it as high as 1.45v which causes the CPU to heat up rather rapidly with the stock cooler, thankfully you can adjust the settings so they don't go that high.
Intel has the new 10 series cpus and the obligatory new MBs around the 1st quarter but no pci express 4 support.
(More PCIe 3 lanes instead)

Looking forward to the Intel keynote at CES.

People would pay £300+ for Ryzen cpus, but when Intel was selling top of the line for £300+ 1-2 years ago, everyone was against.
Have to love this.

I have paid £279 for my i7-8700K on sales 2 years ago, and people were still against Intel.

AMD or the sellers website? If it's AMD that is probably just the international catchall they sell as a standard, if it's the seller I would be suspcious as they are obligated to provide a year regardless of what the manufacturer provides.

If its new and retail boxed the seller is responsible for 90 days. Then AMD honour the remainder of the warranty.

Law of the land is a year, AMD is responsible from day 1, who you deal with is what changes. By law that's a year and sellers aren't allowed to forgo that even if the manufacturer offers differently. Companies that don't follow that generally aren't good to deal with as they don't understand the law under which they operate.

Its amazing how many people dont get it.
And why so many people have such a passionate affiliation to a company that brags about the size of its margins or that its not interested in enthusiasts as it can make more money in mobile (i wont mention servers as while they still make a killing there i think there is a bit of pant soiling going on)

Some very blinkered youtubers dont help mind. They declare lab conditions as fact which i find sad given some of them are very good at what they do.
Also looking forward to what AMD will show at CES.

Intel X58A chipset + i7-920 cpu. Ran that constantly for over 10 Years with win7.
Next to that is an AMD x570 Master + 3700X cpu.

I've had to install win10, don't like it, it's trying to be a tablet and the stupid flat icons and big smily face on the login screen that I do not even want.

Might have to install Linux, there was nothing wrong with 7, everything after that is...

If they announce significant improvements in Gen3 Ryzen and a release date this year, prices on Gen2 (Ryzen 3000) will surely start to fall as potential buyers hold off, especially upgraders coming from Gen1 and Gen1+ chips.

That said, I just took the plunge and moved to a 3700x system (from Intel i7). It's a great chip - good performance and stable/compatible after some niggles when it was launched - and Ryzen 4000 (Gen3) should be compatible with the motherboard so I reckon I'll look at a CPU upgrade to that in maybe 2 years when prices on those are dropping and the bugs have been worked out.

I recently got my Ryzentosh working and besides a couple of small issues, I’m *very* happy with it (especially considering that when I built it, I didn’t do it with macOS in mind, so it was a nice bonus)

WoW is hardly a modern engine which loves lots of cores and threads.

Archage looks like a buggy mess from the Steam reviews so not sure how optimised this will be.

Also need to look at whether you are CPU or GPU bound and also the resolution. Lots of factors.

I'm no amd fanboy but the 3 Series CPUs have mostly bridged the gaming gap and destroy Intel in non gaming.

AMD have also kept the same motherboard compatibility with Ryzen whereas Intel shaft the consumer with every iteration.

All great for the consumer rather than have Intel dominate.

That isn't the case. AMD have very good per core performance, similar or better cinebench R20 single core scores than intel.

Yes Intel's 4 core CPUs are just as good as the 16 core AMD ones in games, but that's because many games aren't optimised for more than 4 cores, not because AMDs cores are weaker.

Please stop spreading lies. A 9900k mobo combo with a 120mm cooler is going for £684.99 whilst a Ryzen 3900X mobo combo with a Coolermaster ML240L 240mm water cooler is going for £643.98.

The 3900X beats the 9900k in cinebench R20, even the 3700X beats the 9900k in cinebench.

On the gaming side of the story, the ryzen either slightly beats the 9900k or is within 15% of the intel frame rate.

9900k is a 14nm+++ PCI 3.0 dud with no future. AMD mobo gives users options in the future and PCIe 4 so when next gen console utilises SSD for ram and other goodies, you’ll be missing out.

Ryzen IS the future.

Intel are struggling to breakthrough the 10nm transistor size. I think they got complacent. I've been intel for ages, my last AMD was an athlon 64. I'm looking at the 3800x or 3900x to replace my i7 4790k.
