    Nope it basically was butter smooth with 2600x, 3700x manages to squeeze few extra % from 1080ti, but with my settings it is gpu limited. Just shows how we Really need upgrades to the "new and shinny" :D . From other point, when the whole your upgrade consist of just swapping cpu and costs next to nothing, temptation is unbearable;)

    The GPU line in the graph is much nicer on the 3700x. It looks like your averages haven't jumped a whole lot but the minimums will have seen a nice bump.

    Would be interested how that goes. I'm one rung down on 4000mhz g-skill stuff (still good binned b-die).
    Waiting a bit for things to settle and 3800X reviews to appear.

    If placed get the 3800X's tomorrow though... I'm gonna be AWFULLY tempted to jump on the early adopter boat :(

    Looks like there's a problem with Gigabyte B450/X470 boards + Ryzen 3000. The NVME drive is not being detected so i guess you an use a sata drive or get a nvme to pcie adapter until there's a fix.

    forgot gow un fun normal cables are. But its cheaper build with compromises next year orr whenever my mate will cahne that 3600 to soem 12/16 core zen 3 :)

    @GIGA-Man Well tomorrow ill have a look what Gigabyte changed in bios ect. Only thing I could complain is cpu 8pin tad too high so could not get aio with fans on top of this case but thats also kinda case fault :p . Deffo nice connector for front panell with power button ect. Can say even better than Asus one :) In general board feels much more SOLID than last Gigabyte one I was playing with. T

    Just got my system up and running, only thing I did right away was stick the RAM up to 3466MHz - everything else essentially 'out of the box'.

    3700X @ Stock, 32GB 3466MHz CL16 RAM, GTX 1080 Armor OC

    1920x1080 - 56.1 FPS (+38%)

    Cheers

    Well I did Power Director rendering test on my small 35 minutelong project:
    Time on 2700x@4250 47.22
    Time on 3900x@4.300 35.43
    Thats what i need ZEN for... Gluing together footage from raves for My Youtube.
    In the end Everyone ends up listening to psytrance hehe

    That looks about right to me, it's good to know AMD are delivering again. It beats my 5960X, not by a huge margin but a win is a win!

    Steve says he has a hard time recommending the 3700X because they don't like recommending chips that are the 'odd one out', stuck in the middle while being 'very good at the things on either side' :confused:

    That's like, entirely why the 3700X is the buy for me.

    Slightly odd conclusion from Steve... wonder what he's going to make of the 3800X lol! That's surely likely to be more the odd one out based on his criteria. The 3700X ticks many boxes for a lot of people I'd say, except for someone who's ONLY gaming and nothing else, more so if they're at 1440/4K. Otherwise, the 3700X does a lot right. For budget builds, the 3600 is clearly the way to go though, but that was never really in question.

    Assuming his benchmarks are right - and he is pretty careful, the 9700k with the 8 cores is actually a very strong chip. I am super happy as I am going to be grabbing a 3600 to upgrade my 2400g and that is a really good uplift.

    Quick question for people with 3700x. Everything at auto and stock on my asus prime pro x370. I’m using the stock cooler in low quiet mode. Idle temps are 50c and load prime95 get 85c ish. Is that what you get?

    Why do we refer to those who game as their most demanding task as we were referring to unicorns? There are many, many people who build computers mostly for gaming.

    I got the 9700k a couple of days ago for 320£ with a 150£ Aorus Pro Wi-Fi and I don't feel like a crazy Intel fanboy.

    It's just that today, for gaming, it still makes sense...
