They’re different generations though.
You’d be even more ahead with a 5900X.
This is a pretty common think with IT equipment (Especially for Gaming). At the high end there is a such a price premium that in most cases you are better off purchasing mid-range more often than high end less frequently.
IE. If you had a $1200 budget for CPUs over a 4 year period you would be much better having bought a 3800x and a 5800x 2 years later than a 3950x for the whole 4 years or at a lower budget a i5 8400 and a 10600 2 years later than an 8700k for the whole 4 years. You can also generally flip newer hardware for more, a 4 year old 3950X will most likely sell for less than a 2 year old 3800x and 5800x (2 years from release rather than 2 years old in general).
True but I believe he means from a value perspective, though i'm guessing you know that. #trollinghard .
Not trolling this time. Just pushing my rather obvious penchant for overpriced top end hardware.
Has anyone given this a go, to move their waterblock/AIO off centre?
EDIT: Looks like it would need some dremel work to fit my motherboard. Not sure if I can bothered or not.
i bought the custom loop variant of this and it's a real pain getting it to fit on different water blocks. Managed to get it mounted with the Corsair XC7 but didn't see any real difference in temperatures.
which blocks did you try, out of curiosity?
Has anyone started selling the 5700G APU yet?
release date is 5/8
the real question is does AU get an initial batch
The major problem is that it relys on the original AM4 bracket to mount, hence any big type blocks like the Bykski AM4/TR sized ones I used won't fit at all. The Corsair block just fits.
Dark Anus BIOS 3703 (beta)
aah.i have a ..velocity i think it was, which looks smaller than the XC7. undecided if i want to give it a crack or not given you had 0 result.... it would be cooling the 5800x so maybe any change would be more noticeable... hm.
Block/mounts seem to give no temperature difference at least for my 5950x it seems to use as much cooling capacity it can up to the PBO limits. Example without PBO it'll top out at high ~70°C (water temp of 38°C) at full Prime95 load, with PBO limits upped to 250W, 150 both EDC/TDC it'll top out at high ~80°C.
6th for Aus (because timezones etc etc)
What makes you think we wouldn't get any?
we will get them, just when.
we've been left off the zero day releases before ....
What is the expected AUD pricing?
They have zen3, L3 cache but not much more over my 4750G(s).
Noticed on ebay Futu online have started selling the 5600g and 5700g...
$535 and $737 respectively :\
Yeah hard pass on that, especially considering they're really zen 2.5 in terms of performance and no pcie 4.0 either
When a 5800X is $600, that price is a joke.
I still don't feel good about paying $600 for my Ryzen Pro 4750G. I don't even use ECC RAM with it.
