Well who would of expected this.

Which one will you be buying?

 

My eye is on the 3700X

 

This is really good news for Star Citizen if we can give the devs more reasons to produce more code for more cores!

Where did you find this!? if the 3700X is really this @ that price it will blow the 9900K out of the water... so long as you can effecftively OC at 5.0 Ghz. This could be the shift that AMD has been pushing for a few years now.

Calling it now, 3850x has a 50 because it is the 50th anniversary of AMD on 1 May next year (this is their 8086k).

 

Exciting times. If I didn't have what was a decent rig 2 yrs ago (6 core, 12 thread), I'd consider this. 7nm is hopefully gonna be awesome!

This is all speculation so far.

But I'd buy that 3850X after checking out benchmarks. Looks like a good upgrade to aim for from my R5 1600X.

Manual overclocking isn't really necessary for these CPUs, their turbo/boost alghorithms are already fine tuned. Just adjust PBO and you should be set pretty much.

      AMD has a utility program that will help you do many things with the Ryzen and Threadripper chips - like turn off hyperthreading (the core disable feature) to give you better single core performance.

      I predict that the FOIP webcam that Faceware will be selling will be pricier than most backers want to pay - I'm thinking it will bump around $200 give or take. To be worth the purchase, a webcam shouldn't peg above $100 I'm thinking. You can use cheaper webcams, but they will be plagued with no low-light capability and FPS speeds not to your liking WRT to FOIP. I've seen faceware's video and photos showing how much better it is in low light. Grain of Salt, imho

      So, there's the Logitech C920 (discontinued but available for and C922 ($70-$80) - both very good but require a light source if you're a gamer playing in just monitor light. Streamers like them, but they tend to use studio-type lighting. https://www.bestadvisor.com/webcams/logitech-c920-vs-logitech-c922
      ASccording to reviews, the C920 ($50 on Amazon) could capture 1080p or 720p at 30fps. The C922 Pro Stream ($100), however, can do either 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps) (The logitech Brio is $200)
      Razer has an option with it's own ring light (very nice for when you only have the light from your monitors) for $100 and it also handles 1080p/30fps and 720p/60fps with a 4:3 aspect ratio--> https://www.razer.com/gaming-broadcaster/razer-kiyo (order from Razer and it's free shipping)
