Ryzen 9 CPU
The New AMD 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU LineupThe new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs have arrived boasting higher performance gains over its predecessor lineup. With higher speeds, more memory and wider bandwidth the new Ryzen CPUs look to improve on and upgrade the way you relax, work and play. The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor includes 12 CPU Cores with 24 threads and a base clock of 3.8GHz that can be boosted to 4.6GHz. The new CPU's are backwards compatible with older motherboards thanks to the same AM4 slot socket however with the newly released chipset of X570 motherboards you can maximize the power the Ryzen CPUs have to offer. Support for DDR4 Memory continues but with the new Ryzen CPUs comes the new PCIe 4.0 Version which has improved the speeds of which your PCIe components such as graphics cards and some storage solutions communicate with the motherboard. Blur the line between elite gaming performance and workstation-class content creation with the most advanced desktop processors in the world.

Clock: 3.8GHz, Boost 4.6GHz | Twelve Core, 24 Threads | Cache: 64MB L3

Is it worth it, could it handle 4K gaming easily etc. I'm looking to spend about £1300 total on building one, would this be a good start


Way too high end for gaming. This CPU is high end of the spectrum and more for multi core workloads like rendering programs. For gaming at 4k get yourself a 3700x paired with some 3600 ram and a 2060/70/80 super graphics card depending on how much cash you have after case and PSU choices. For your budget I would recommend 1440p at 144 fps rather than 4k at some horrid fps

This is high-end hardware. Although, if you've got a budget of £1300 and would like to game in 4K, I'd going for the 3700x which is around £150+ cheaper than this. That means you'll be able to spend £150ish more on a better graphics card.

uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…cMc <--- This is a pretty decent build as comes to £1364.

If you want to save some more money, replace the 3700x with a 3600x.

Yeah put your awesome graphics card in a £30 case with terrible airflow powered by a 200 wat no name PSU from AliExpress. Building a pc is a careful balancing act of parts if you have a strict budget.

Threadripper is HEDT as it uses a different socket with more features and expense and it goes up to 64 cores.
This is just a high end mainstream desktop chip that fits the mainstream platform.

I just abbreviated but you are correct the threadripper socket is the true HEDT. I have a 3700x in a custom loop but thinking about upgrading to a 3900x for my VM workloads
Great price!
The way AMD are going this is going to be low end before the year is out.
Personally id only call it mid range today in terms of AMD's portfolio.
Its only if you compare to intel it becomes high end.

This really isn't the case anymore. More games are taking advantage of the extra cores something like a 3900x is offering. There is no reason to buy a 4 core in 2020 unless you have a really tight budget or only need a low powered machine.

Wouldn’t get my hopes up for this tbh. Cpu wise, intel had been complacent for years on end. Hadn’t bothered making significant gains and just kept refining the same old stuff a lot of the time. Opportunity was there for AMD to steal a march on them. Not so much the case in GPU market with Nvidia. Driver support is better on team green. But I would love to see AMD bounce back properly on this front also.

What GPU do you have? With a high end GPU, you could expect a 10-20% increase in average FPS by upgrading to a 3600. Also, the minimum FPS you'll expect is about 25-35% higher with a 3600.

1080ti and I'm holding out for next gen CPU's, I know the increase on the FPS would be decent but I cant justify an upgrade yet beacuse i only bought the 2600 last year the Mrs would go mad

lmao why are you getting so aggressive mate? I'm trying to inform someone on a good CPU to get. Yes, you're right. CPU usage scales down with resolution. But what are you talking about 24x more antialiasing than at 1080p?

Also, if the person I was originally speaking to got something like a 2070 or a 2080 (which would be likely considering their budget, a 3600 would offer a a massive boost compared to a 2600.

Calm down lad

Just wait for the 20th of March for the Ampere announcement. Current gen RTX cards will receive a significant RPP slash.
As rumors say, the price will be the same for Ampere cards. There won't be a significant price inflation because 2xxx was a terrible seller, especially the top tier ones.

Windows 7 is end of life next week. No more security patches. I highly recommend you don't use it anymore. I run a windows 10 VM in arch Linux with plasma. I load up the windows VM when I want to play a game. Rest of my time is in Linux. Looks loads prettier than windows.
