      most of the "reviewers" on youtube are also "content creators"... but most people here simply are "content consumers" or gamer.... adobe, blender, r15, r20 benchmark really means nothing for "content consumers" or gamers..... so why are reviewers so "self-obsessed" with their own needs? we don't make content... and simply don't give a damn about cpu benchmark that self-centered on content creation performance....

      Hi Paul,
      You might want to do another set of benchmarks for the new AMD CPUs, AMD just released another Bios fix update.

    Paul, thank you for adding Adobe altho it was video and not photography it has a bearing on my decision.

          *SMALL MISTAKE*
          Paul said the i9-9900K had eighteen cores when he was talking about the R9-3900x... he said "... twelve vs eighteen" and meant "..twelve vs eight" Somewhere near 5 minute mark.

                  @Philosophical Mind  yeah, everyone who watches these videos primarily plays games. So again, another amd failure.

                  As for "tiny fans", read up on how amd's inferior platform require Northbridge fans. Another amd failure.

                  @hikeskool it dominates only by 10% in games, a difference you wont notice, but you will notice the 40% in productivity :)
                  what do you mean by tiny fans?

                  @Philosophical Mind you would think amd would actually at least attempt to be superior in all aspects, but no. Another amd failure. At least in this round of benchmarks, Intel still dominates gaming.

                  Speaking of "cooking stove" (no idea what you think you meant by that), enjoy the mandatory tiny fans on the Northbridge of all these new motherboards. Yet another amd failure.

                  whats embarrassing is the cooking stove you have in your pc.

                3900x is cool and all, but you have to give the 9900k credit for have less threads and less cores and still hold it's own like this against the 3900x.

                • Jeffrey Photonboy
                  Jeffrey Photonboy  2 days back

                  Um, it's holding it's own only in applications that don't use all the threads the R9-3900x has. It's also worth noting that various software improvements are likely to close that gap over the next couple years. That includes Windows scheduling and using more Ryzen-optimized compilers for newer code... I'm frankly more impressed with the R7-3700x having the same core/thread count and being ALMOST as good on average but at a much lower cost (especially since you don't need to add CPU cooler cost).

                      i would like to see you use the gigabyte x570 gaminig x motherboard, reason being its £182.98 compared to the gigabyte x570 aurus master £389.90
                      i always new this was going to happen intel prices boooooooo. no more cheap boards.
                      I wonder what intel users will have to face when intel brings out their 10nm cpu? if the above has happened to amd

                          Paul, can you tell us about backward compatibility to older mobos like the X370's with Ryzen Gen 3? I have an Asus Crosshair VI Hero and need to know if I can still use it. The googling hasn't been much help.

                                          how is the noise from that chipset fan? I'm coming here from a video with this same x570 motherboard where it seems the fan is stuck at max speed and still can't keep the chipset under 67 degrees.

                                              I think I will keep my 6700K for another few years. Not impressed AMD Gaming score. And mostly people are using there computers for Gaming. If you are looking for video or animation rendering no one of this CPU's are good. For that guys I recommend waiting for AMD 3950x.

The new Ryzen CPU's really like fast ddr4 meories, the sweet spot is about at 3600 MHz but you can go higher for more performance. And the motherboards with B450 and even the X470 chipsets support mostly max 3200 MHz and some of them 3433 MHz memories. So you will be bottlenecked by the memory, more precisely by the chipset unless you pay an extra for the X570 and accept that probably you won't use the stuff you are getting with the X570 because one PCIe x16 slot is enough for video card, one or two PCIe x1 slot is enough for the additional cards, and PCIe 4.0 is nice but everything woul'd be the same with PCIe 3.0 too. So where are the motherboards with the B550 chipsets?! Because if you have to pay an extra 100-120 dollars for the motherboard, then there is no price advantage at AMD at all.
