    True, but that's why you skip a few generations...

    For me going from an 1800X to a 5900X or 5950X... that'll be fun :leet:. It'll be what, >100% performance boost?

    Don't see why..
    B350.x370 boards aren't compatible with 5000 so, they can upgrade to 12 cores.. Should still have resale. Sell now if you want.

    You should have seen it back in the day, paid a $1000 for a 386 and within 18months the 486 came out, throw that in the bin.
    This was always the plan.

    This is what I am talking about.. Everyone gets multithreaded performance equiv to moving one product level.

    Its gets about 460.. so a 5950x would be 450% the performance. a 5900x will only be 380% the performance.
    Its a ~40% performance increase from the same product in the previous product stack. 3700x->5700x= ~40-50% faster.

    Ryzen 2000 got a huge boost in multimedia encoding performance. So did Ryzen 3000. Ryzen 3000 is basically twice as fast as ryzen 2000 in multimedia.

    i have a 3700x and 3900x and 3600

    i will be dropping a Zen3 into the impact, still a bit undecided on if its a 35900x or 5950x, hopefully a 5950x, for me doesnt feel like an upgrade going from a 12 core to a 12 core :p

    Kind of proves there isn't much reason to move from a 3950X?

    Apart from a 5900X with less cores beating it, i suppose, but it's not a huge gap

    I thought I had waited enough generations going from Sandy Bridge-E to Zen 2 :lol:.

    No such thing as a "gaming" CPU IMO....

    The 3300X pretty much smashes the 17/1800 with half the cores?

    A gamer typically has a 1440P/4K setup.

    Best bang for bang is 6 core and upgrade every generation minimal cost to upgrade , did the 8 core(+) CPUs ever make sense for gaming in hindsight?

    I doubt it...., Those 2700 CPUs don't look so flash these days either.

    No need for an upgrade until games demand it, but if somebody was to upgrade now 8 cores would seem a safe choice given the new consoles rocking 8x zen2 cores.

    Any Australian pre-orders available for the 5600x or otherwise?

    Gaming still basically only uses 4/6 cores in most games, a gaming CPU IMO is a 3300x, 3600x.
    3900x and 3950x aren't gaming CPU's. Which game pegs 24 threads or 32 threads?

    Encoding, rendering, processing..

    5000 series are still going to be monsters. The IPC uplift is huge, and that will be noticeable for games and everything else.
    But the FPU/encoding performance is massive. 40% ontop of last gen.

    when AMD released the 3900X they showed it as being able to have your gaming and streaming PC as one as it c ould handle the threads from the games aswell as encoding to the stream.

    IMO for modern gaming @ 60+hz you really want at least 6 cores and 16gb of ram for a comfortable experience

    While the extra cores may not improve gaming performance, going from 35/36MB up to 70MB cache, which is on the 5900X, should in theory be an improvement.

    New consoles mean that 8 cores/16 threads will be the the default which will help I think. Still going to be mostly 4-6 cores doing the work though I suspect.

    Problem with consoles is, it'll take years before we really start to see any kind of improvement in performance and utilisation. Take the M.2 drives in them for example, it'll be at least 2 or 3 years before we see games being made to take full advantage of them and by then PC drives will probably be faster.

    It shits me to no end that we use consoles as a standard for performance. Games are made on PC, make them for PC then dumb them down for console :mad:.
