    In fact, your data actually backs up my decision. Given the cost was the same, the 9600 is an average 5fps better.

    Thanks for helping!

    Those gaming tests are done with a 100% clean and backround process free system. If the 3600 is starting to show some wins in some games with 6C/12t, that's going to be exacerbated when you're running the system in a typical use ase. i.e one where you actually leave shit running (Chrome, game clients, AV, etc.) - Also have to consider if [near] future games continue to push MT harder (it's a slow road, but it is happening). Some games are really saturating 6 threads, which is the only reason the Ryzen can even show its legs against the 9600.

    So I guess the point is if you can get 6c/12t for the same or less money, why wouldn't you. Even if you don't percieve the extra MT performance to be particularly useful, there's no premium to pay for it. I know if there's a 2 for one Cherry ripe deal @ the servo, i'm not going to say No thanks, i'll just take 1, even if I doubt I'll eat the other.


    Anyway - nothing wrong with your choice.. you may also just prefer Intel, but you did say:
    so hopefully that answers it.

    It’s probably since people are buying more AMD so prices have likely risen.

    Ryzen 5 3600 is $300. i5 9600K is $289 without a cooler. You’re not getting a decent cooler for $11.

    You’re maths is clearly affected by your preference for Intel.

    I think it is a road where the speed limit is rapidly increasing. This, and next, gen consoles are built on AMD x86 based cores. These are customised (semi?) cores but we are starting to see the predictions of many people, from back when the AMD cores were announced for this generation of console, come true. Console development gets more money so by coming at the market from there then AMD were almost guaranteed to benefit in the long run.

    Doom2016 running the Vulkan API under Linux via DXVK. That's pretty good multi core rendering for a game:

    The problem with people posting charts in which some chip beats some other chip by a small percentage over a range of games is that even reviewers are tied to the silicon lottery.

    When it comes down to a small percentage of performance difference for specific tasks, it becomes purely a matter of which way your own preferences swing, what other parts you already possess or are planning to buy, how much you are willing to spend and what your main use case for the system is.

    There is no *best* CPU when you are looking at <5% difference for whatever your main use case is, all other things being equal.

    Its hard to be an Intel fan when this kinda shit happens....

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/i...lans-then-nixes-pcie-40-support-on-comet-lake

    So pay premium for the PCIe 4 circuits, but won't be able to use it :tired:

    Well the good news is last i saw when they were releasing their PCIE 4.0 SSD's/Optane they were having to use Ryzen systems in order test :lol:

    They're having a bad run lately. Complacency is bit of a bitch

    When's 10900K any accurate info?? I want to build another dedicated gamer with either 9900KS / 10900K but all depends on timing ??

    Any info please?

    oh deary me. Intel needs to redesign themselves. A step in the right direction is probably incorporating a big $ symbol as well as a picture of a leaking sieve.

    Maybe I'm being bit impatient since we don't even have official launch date yet(let alone benchmark etc) but I'm not really looking forward to 10900K..
    1. I don't think it's gonna outperform 9900KS in games(probably similar to 9900K) and it's not gonna be able to beat 3900X/3950X in productivity.
    2. If you really want 10c/20t i9 CPU then you could just buy 10900X right now, and I don't think you'll be paying much extra over 10900K/Z490.
    3. Z490 chipset will only be used for 10th gen Intel(most likely) and doesn't really offer any benefit over Z370.. and at least Z270 and Z370 supported two gens.

    lol selling the new LGA1200 CPUs without any usable mobo is just stupid.. :thumbdn:


    The upcoming Core i7-10700K should easily outperform today's Core i9-9900K
    https://www.pcgamer.com/au/the-upco...hould-easily-outperform-todays-core-i9-9900k/


    Core i9-10900K CPU Score Spotted in 3DMark - let's chart that up
    https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/core-i9-10900k-cpu-score-spotted-in-3dmark-lets-chart-that-up.html

    I still think stock 9900KS's gonna outperform stock 10700K/10900K in overall games tho.. cos 9900KS runs 5GHz on all cores(all the time), whereas 10700K/10900K run 5.1/5.3GHz on only on 1 core(probably) and only during Turbo.

    Um why if the new CPU has higher clocks and more cores? what am I missing here?
