Might have a stronger effect instead
More cars fit on the road at lower speed.
And there will be less spread between low speed and high speed lanes.
So lowering speed limits will indirectly reduce congestion, which also improves average fuel consumption
unless everyone overthinks the problem
you are touching the area of brake specific fuel consumption, BSFC
a curve of how much fuel is burned per horsepower produced over range of rpm and throttle positions.
Fascinating plots that may explain it better when you see one...
Zen2 should be ignored. Sure it could be on top in multithreaded benchmarks, but overall it will be slower across large range of tasks and gaming.
Choice should be between Zen3 and Alder Lake, and budget will decide.
Out of these choices 3. (3600 14-15-15) should be fastest. Could confirm in aida64 latency test.
But as you already found out, all 4 would be fairly similar. maybe geekbench could appreciate the difference.
70% looks impressive, but it was from a low start.
Zen4 will double L2 cache and equip high bandwidth DDR5, so improve same areas that benefit from large L3.
A fair chance that in some titles/resolutions 5800X3D will remain top. But not in all like it is now
That is a solid motherboard
+1 on PSU advice above. With Ryzen 5600 go lower 650W or even less if high quality gold. No GPU south of 1000 pounds will need more

Price gap between 3060Ti and 3060 is large, but so is the performance.
Price gap between 3070 and 3070Ti is small, but so is the performance, and the TI will use a lot more power.
When I was looking for GPU, 3060Ti and 3070 were the best in terms of price/performance/heat (and chances to get a...
To bide time until it arrives, and also to indirectly confirm PSU is the issue, you could experiment with basic GPU undervolting.
Not even undervolting, just reduce the GPU power limit in Afterburner
Reduce it from default (what is it, 450W?) by 100-150W and see if crashes persist.
As compact as many ITX cases, but gives more options.
Full size CPU cooler or 240mm AIO
Large graphics cards
nah, it is the good old "not enough voltage for the clock speed"
It is just that with curve optimiser it is more likely that unstable clock/voltage combination is not reached very often. Usually in intermittent/low load situation, which makes it tricky to test.
Not again the 720p discussion... every single time
It should be pinned on top of CPU forum. There are valid reasons to test without GPU bottleneck and there are valid complaints that it often doesn't matter.
Btw I predict that 5800X3D huge cache CPU will also perform best in GPU limit cases...
