Have to say i'm a bit non plussed with the overall platform cost / efficiency compared to my current X570 & Ryzen R9 5950X.
Have a few questions Tom if I may,
- ref Win 11 & W10? Have you or will you be trying the new platform on Win 10?
- Looking at the power draw figures, am I right in thinking that Intel is still about 20% off AMD on 7nm taking thread count, platform (what is DDR5 in power, X690 in power) cost?
- What are boot times for 12th Gen and X690?

Thanks for the review.

Did you use the Windows 11 version with the fix for the Ryzen processors?

I dont feel so bad now. Gaming wise i see little boost for me, but the temps are a definate pleaser.

Makes me wish I held out longer and got this Glacial instead of the Z590 when I see how good it looks, but Alder lake looks to be a success for sure.

Yeah gaming wise there won't be much in it at 1440P, I'm guessing the "Average FPS" section is at 1080P as it does not say, I never play at 1080P anymore so gaming wise 12th gen would not be an upgrade for me, Gonna wait for AMD's stacked cache 5800X see how that goes.

Well after watching 12600k with ddr4 would be the sensible money, the performance is decent, but personally I'll wait for Zen4 late next year, but fully expect Zen3VC to be pretty much on par with these.

I'll wait myself just doesn't feel a massive step just yet more a step towards and by the time the stuff i really want is out then ddr5 prices and specs may have settled somewhat.

So a years wait and if the prices on that are sheer madness i'll always be able to get something decent sometimes new isn't the best deal to be had.

Quite pleasantly surprised by this. Sadly as I mentioned before, the lack of GPUs to go with them is the issue.

If you want to see how it performs in an updated Win 10 then watch GN's review. They have only used Win 10 thus far. It's slightly ahead of Ryzen in gaming, which is good, and much cheaper if you use DDR4, though I haven't see the DDR4 results yet. Meaning that lead could be down to (as pointed out in the review there) to the RAM.

I still wouldn't go near this yet. I still regret going to the 1920x, because they only literally sorted out all of its bugs about two months after I bought that, and I was very late in the game. The aggro wasn't really worth it.

The best part is I can see AMD having to drop their prices, which will make a 5000 series quite tempting as a replacement for my 3600. The 3950x is going nowhere.

I'll probably offload my R9 5950x and get the stacked cache jobbie with 192MB -

Hearing that Enterprise variants of Gen 12 won't be in the chanel till Mar / Apr 22. Interesting that Dell have made the XPS chassis 27ltr instead of last gens 19ltr. Presumably to allow better airflow for the AIO.

It is nice to see competition back in the cpu market!! This might push the 5000 series prices down which i might upgrade to one of those from this 3700x in the future.
