Not out until July 7 but it sounds dreamy.

What do you all think?
I'm planning an upgrade around summer/fall so tempted to get one.

The Ryzen 9 3950X is an absolute unit. It's too bad it will probably be demolished by Intel's top binned CPU later this year, as is usually the case.

Well the reviews are in.

From what I can tell, both the new video cards and processors give more bang for your buck than Intel or NVidia, but both still hold the lead in terms of power and tech.  (Ray tracing support on NVidia being a big one)

Still gonna go for the Ryzen 3700X with the  MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS, S-AM4 motherboard, and the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 16GB.

Probably around Sept. or Oct.

It isn't time for me yet. I had my current PC just over a year. I like 3 years out of a PC.

But in 18 months time, I'm guessing a Ryzen 3600 and a Radeon 5700 (or maybe 5700XT if I'm feeling flush) will be nice and cheap and could well be on my shopping list and would be a nice step up from my Ryzen 1400 and RX580.


My next PC needs to coincide with a new monitor and I want a really wide one. Something like ...



And then that would warrant the increase in GPU performance to run the 3440 x 1440 screen for gaming. But ultra wide's need to come down in price. I'm waiting for the next perfect storm.
