    Ryzen 3 after 4 price speculation.

    Kind of in the same boat here, but going to wait it out. Have one PC left to upgrade. Currently have an x570 with a 2700 running in it because I was waiting for the 3950 to come back in stock. Now with just a few months left til R4 drops, I'm going to wait and see if the core improvements will...

    Would you run you Ryzen CPU with these settings CPU fan 100% to keep CPU cool.

    That video is single core running at 1.45V. You're SS above is 4.5 allcore at 1.1V. That didn't happen. I don't doubt the ram settings are possible, but cpu settings aren't real.

    Upgrade monitor or use 4K TV for new gaming PC?

    I understand it perfectly fine. An hdmi 2.0 can do 120hz 1440p just fine. None of them can do 4k 120hz. It wil *always* replay the frame twice. You will never see 100 different frame in a second through that connect at 4k. That was the point I was making. There is no 120hz 4k hdmi 2.0.

    Upgrade monitor or use 4K TV for new gaming PC?

    Most "120Hz" TVs are not 120Hz inputs. They use things like backlight scanning to remove motion blur, but they won't actually display more than 60 updated images per second to the monitor. It's a cleaner 60, but it's not as good as real 100+ Hz displays in how smooth animation transitions...

    3800x did I win silicon lottery?

    I don't know about not mattering. My 3700x at 4.25 all core gets a multi of 5124 to 5158 depending on which way the wind is blowing that day. A 300 MHz deficit should reflect more than 40 pts difference. The ram I'm using is at 3733, so I'd wager that's making at least some difference.

    I just got a Radeon VII! Do I upgrade monitors?

    I've been using an Asus designo mx34vq for my main display with my VII. Works just fine and can usually his the 100MHz refresh cap at max presets for most titles. I think you'll enjoy it quite a bit...

    AMD Black Friday

    I kind of doubt that. Good V56s are around 1660ti level performance. I dont think the 5500s will get that far.

    2060 as a fully capable RT card.

    I think his point is that both of those cards are demonstrably better than a 2060. They are. But a 2060 also isnt something to consider for a high refresh 1440p system. That's 2070 Super and higher territory.

    R7 core temp

    ?? There is no temp "per core". Just the temp of the die in the socket.

    Just something that crossed my mind the other day...check to make sure chill isnt enabled. As, even if the switch shows no, flip it on, restart, flip it off, restart again. Just a thought.

    2700X vs. 3600X

    This. The MC on the CPU is the big contributor here. Much more than the MB. When I had my 1700 in my b350 Pro4, RAM topped out at 2933. Same mobo, bios 6.0 and I'm running at 3733 with my 3700x, completely stable.

    3rd gen Threadripper, big fail and missed opportunity for AMD.

    Pretty much this. They aren't vying to be the alternative HEDT cpu anymore. When you *know* your new product is crushingly good vs your opponent, you don't have to price check so hard. Intel's HEDT stack had to drop into the price range of AMD's consumer stack...because that's what it's worth.

    Not sure. I'm mostly current on my Win 10 patching. Been on 1903 for a while. I do use the amdcleanup util every time I install a new driver. I never just install over the old one.

    Radeon VII Owner's Club!

    How about a recording of it. You can se the game is active, Wattman in the background, card holding steady between 1900 and 1915, HBM 1199-1200. Then I click back to wattman and show that the driver is 19.9.2. Edit: looks like we have to wait for processing to up the resolution...can't read...

    No. Mine holds 1900/1200 just fine in-game on 19.9.2, playing division 2, FF14 or Witcher 3.
