I mean, how much does 8c/16t and 300MHz more in boost clock, actually do in terms of raw fps/gaming performance and overall daily consumer computing make?...

Why go with this over the 3700X for example? Which has an killer TDP as well?

Cores? Absolutely irrelevant. More MHz? Pretty nice, nothing groundbreaking. But the improved architecture might help a fair bit in gaming.


In consumer computing and gaming, no reason to buy more than 6/12 or 8/16.

They're calling it a gaming CPU but unless you're into some sort of content creation as well you'll not need this many cores and threads for years by which point something better will be available for less money.

Marketing aside it's a good deal for a pretty specific audience.

Yup I figured they were going to create a new price bracket.

And, I was only off 50 cents on the price.

Can you tell I did marketing for 2.5 years? Including all if the bummy compulsory seminars?

It's a great gaming CPU.

You can stream and high quality and game without a massive loss in fps. You still lose quite a bit of performance even with 8 core Ryzen or even the 8700k. The 8 core i9 stuff wouldn't be different.

More cores and threads just let's a better playing experience while streaming which many people do.

This! I watched the livestream and they showed a 9900k vs the 3900x livestreaming and it was chalk and cheese the 3900x smashed the 9900k in deliverable quality to the person watching and was smooth for the gamer too

Though assuming AMD VCE is improved in the new 5000 series to match Nvidia's, it's near pointless to use CPU for streaming.

Great News Shame about the September release though, was hoping for something this summer...

For me this 16 core is gonna be awesome, I run a lot of vm's (work related) on my 9900k and having to shut them all down when I wanna game is a pain in the ass, I can now leave the labs running in the background and fire up some games when I wanna relax.

Amazing job AMD ! !
