Surely if they are being sold as a bundle, the shop would have to get the BIOS updated...
I know it's the AMD thread but honestly those benchmarks make me so happy i put a 12400 in the new rig i built for the kid. As much as I love AMD, i wanted an intel one in the house just in case i want to dickaround and use quicksync etc lol
yea I agree, 12400 is the better choice if picking between team blue or red, $300 (12400) vs. $340 (5600x) retail, then $275 for the 5600 for almost the same performance, not much in it. factor in board costs AMD the value pick there, has been and always will be hey.
$350 for 5600 + gigabyte b550 board . board supports bios flashback. If you are buying new, gotta make sure board has bios flashback
edit: Such a budget board. only 1 m.2
Just watching this now and seems, in comparison to 5600, the 12400 isn't that good for the money, and is still a room heater ...
If I was to upgrade from the 3700X I'd need something that could be cooled with my Noctua NH-L12S Low Profile cooler.
"The CPU scored 1639 points and 10498 points in Geekbench 5.4.4 in single-core and multi-core CPU benchmark respectively. That’s actually a lower single-core result than the average R7 5800X data listed in the Geekbench database (1671/10339 points). Furthermore, AMD’s CPU scores 617 and, 6506 points in built-in CPU-Z benchmark, which is lower than i9-12900K reference data."
Is that really relevant though?
We know it has a lower clock speed than 5800x. It'll only benefit in cache heavy workloads. If we do a post for each thing it doesn't win at, we will be here a while
The headline will be world's fastest gaming CPU
Well, that's what AMD had planned to say, we'll know soon
true need the complete picture, still not sure about the whole being locked thing mind you
and the first leaks!
this might be the first chip released where it only has meaningful gains in the one area gamers care about, frames!
This is what they spoke about.
Well you get what's you want
Basically a 5800X (for games)
I'm starting to think they the best upgrade for my x470 system is the 5850X. The X3D would have been my go to choice if they stuck with the 12 core 5900X3D as demoed by Lisa Su originally.
The extra cache is useful in games only.
AMDs in house testing showed no useful gains for content creation etc
Even if it was just for games. The consoles have 8 cores with hyperthreading. So you need more than that to keep up on PC. It needed to be the 12 core to be worth getting.
