i7 9900k is a silly buy when we have Ryzen. This Ryzen is 5% slower on average in games and absolutely kills the i7 in almost everything else for less money and with a good quality cooler supplied.

In most of the cases you don't need anything more than £150 Ryzen 5 3600 ( gaming), alternatively ryzen 7 3700x if you are looking for specifically 8c/16t. Both are substantially cheaper than Intel's leaky piece of silicon.

They were feeding us garbage for a number of years, charging more and more every new line that was released. If not an AMD, you would still pay almost £200 for a bare quad core. Time's up.

And don't forget their anticompetitive appetite and activities. Absolutely unforgivable.

Wait for another eBay code to drop, it was £377. I also now know I didn’t need this CPU at all, total overkill for my usage! However I was surprised how good the stock cooler has handled thermally for my use.
Just a heads up for anyone considering this, unless you're planning some heavy video encoding, or running multiple virtual machines this will be overkill.

For strictly gaming you're better off with the 3600. However, in light of the latest console specs, you may be better going for the 3700x to match the 8 cores they offer. That's pure speculation though.

Future proofing is a dirty word in PC building, but you can't go wrong with either of the above depending on your budget.

I'd recommend taking a look at gamers nexus for a detailed breakdown.

Well 8 cores in a jaguar chip clocked at sub 2ghz is a wee bit different to the possibility of 8c/16t cores cloacked at 3.5 to 4 odd ghz depending on what actually happens.

When it was £377 the GBP/USD exchange rate was 1.28 now it's 1.16 and unstable, I know that shouldn't count for existing stock, but shops will take any opportunity to up prices, I'd be surprised if the 3900X hits £380 (even with codes) again any time soon.

Agree but let's remember if you're playing at 1080p youd want something like the 3900x if you wanna future proof it a bit, I wouldn't encourage the 3600. Minimum fps will be much higher on the 3900x.

If you're running 4k then any decent cpu is fine as its then GPU bound.
RossC9121/03/2020 09:35

I don't see that in the other post? Either way you need the more expensive mobo on Intel chips, the lower tier Intel ones are garbage and locked down can't even oc while b450 is all you need with Ryzen.

X570 only adds pcie-4 and more lanes which are not necessary and Intel doesn't even have pcie-4 yet on anything. Plus you need to buy an aftermarket cooler with Intel, while the stock Ryzen ones are sufficient.

9700k isn't comparible to 3700x either, it lacks hyperthreading so will age badly, just look at the 4/4 i5s Vs 4/7 i7s, hyperthreading really helps.

Unless people were gaming on 1080p AND with at least a 2070S or above, the so-called better performance of the Intel CPU would not be shown in real-world gaming situation.

At 1440p or above, 99.9% of the time the bottleneck will be on GPU side, thus the Intel wouldn't be any faster.

I can run multiple VMs with a Ryzen 5 3600 and 32GB RAM. Next year if I have any money left or even a job, as my job is under threat as are many other people's then I will drop in an 8 core if I need it as I ramp up my production system. At the moment I'm not fully utilising it even with a 3600. I agree with your sentiment in general though, absolute there's a use case for this CPU but as of today it's not required for gaming and even some higher end workloads could still utilise a Ryzen 5 3600.

Where possible run folding@home when your PC is idle. The distributed computing power of folding@home is already greater than the single most power computer in the world and it still needs increasing.

Would you consider donating that computing power when your computer is idle to this project?

foldingathome.org/202…rms

Even little helps.

"Folding@home is one of the world's fastest computing systems, with a speed of approximately 98.7 petaFLOPS[7] as of early March 2020, though with the influx of new users due to the coronavirus outbreak it was annouced on the 20th of March that Folding@Home now has over 470 petaFLOPS of compute power, making it the world's most powerful super computer of any kind.[8] This performance from its large-scale computing network has allowed researchers to run computationally costly atomic-level simulations of protein folding thousands of times longer than formerly achieved. Since its launch on 1 October 2000, the Pande Lab has produced 223 scientific research papers as a direct result of Folding@home.[9] Results from the project's simulations agree well with experiments" Source: Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wik…ome

As of November 2018, the fastest supercomputer on the TOP500 supercomputer list is the Summit, in the United States, with a LINPACK benchmark score of 143.5 PFLOPS

Hopefully from the above data you can see we have massively scaled up the compute power of folding@home far exceeding the single most powerful supercomputer on the planet. This compute power will absolutely help with drug design. The Summit supercomputer for example has already suggested 70 existing drugs which could help with the fight against Corona Virus.

Yes this folding@home is more powerful than the top 7 computers in the world combined, but they still need more compute power and if you check that Twitter link, it shows how it's helped to model the spike protein of the Corona virus.

Stop being a pc pauper, if you want to run the latest and greatest at 1440p or 4k, use some common. Or build an X360.

Not at all, its just light banter. I think understand your underlying position on this. I wouldn't build a Gaming PC that exceeded my requirements or needs either.

Yeah of course, if you are only going to play CSGO then you dont need to build a 12 core 2080ti quad SLI pc, and i5 and 2060 is ample

SLI is dead and abandoned, so its irrelevant, even a 2080ti doesn't cut it for 4k in most games, is poor value, and is getting long in the tooth. Ample?, that depends on your expectations, the system you propose is limited, with little if no head room, that also is false economy, especially if its 4 core.
