    The joys of the 3950x being constantly delayed. I don't feel as bad about getting the 3900x over waiting now. Hopefully it doesn't get delayed so much that it hurts sales.

    The more "x" they put the more appeal they get 😊

    TR 3 will have PCIE 4.0, there will be a new chipset and socket for it.

    AM4 is supported until 2020, not the HEDT chips.

    Lots of rumored Ryzen chips…. but nothing new to buy,more delays….. R7 3700 NON X,a R7 3750X a R9 3960X…. Ampere 7nm…..12 new Navi cards incoming?(Big Navi? ALA RX5800/5850/5900XT??)
    Oh and Where is the B550 mobo's?!!

    you guys are committing hardware sins! mentioning TDP, comparing 2 completely different processors by frequency… maybe there's more I'm only a few minutes in :/ I expect better from you

    Personally I wouldn't buy a 2080ti/1080ti etc.

    Once a new line is released you'll be ticked that $1200 card isn't faster (or equal) to the $800 newly released non TI. If you have the extra cash go for it but someone 'saving' doesn't obviously have the cash to burn.

    میرے پاس پیسے نہیں ہیں میرے پیسوں کی ضرورت ہے اسی کے ساتھ جیسا کمپنی اس سے میرے پیسے ملیں گے کمپنی اور زلزلے کے معنی اچھالو کروں گا

    3800X was not needed…neither is the 3750X. AMD just trying to milk the consumer as much as they can…just like Nvidia and Intel.

    i have a 1950x, paid $500 for an asus zenith extreme mobo, i mean, would LOVE to be able to drop a new gen cpu in it. realistically speaking, I am not 100% confident they would do that. it would be sweet if they do. i mean, it would be cool if they did a cpu that could support 8 channel ram, but would be ok if it ran in quad channel, hence would be ok to drop in an older motherboard. you'd have the desire to upgrade your motherboard to get access to that 8 channel ram, but wouldn't necessarily need to if you didn't want too.

    Skip this Yr for buying gpus. In 2020 we will have amper, rdna2, Xe. Also rx5700xt/ rx5700 should drop in price too.

    Are regular people really going to 32 core threadripper? for content creators 16 cores really isn't enough? I mean I guess if we go the CGI route or 8k in gaming and stuff maybe. But that's kind of far down the road I think

    I never had a problem upgrading my motherboard with Intel chips anyway because I always wanted something new and different.
    I mean yeah everybody can follow the pied Piper , that would be the tech tubers, but I personally always wanted something different.

  • October 17, 2019 at 9:17 pm

    I'll be upgrading soon after certain parts are actually available to buy, but currently I run a 6700hq and a 1070 maxq and I can still play current AAA titles on high settings (not very high) on a 1080P monitor and still hover right around 60 fps. So, personally I'll be getting a 3900x with a 2080 Super and have it last me just fine for another 5 odd years. Why pay ~$1200 for a 2080Ti when I can get both a 3900x and 2080 Super for $1400. I don't really see the 2080Ti outlasting the 2080 Super to the point that it's worth the price of a 3900x.

    Copy and paste, replace the – with a . and you are good to go. digitaltrends-com/computing/amd-ryzen-3750x-eight-core-cpu/

    Not really sure I know what the difference is between 3700x and 3800x, so really confused about 3750x.

    IMO 3700x should be 3700 and 3800x should be 3700x.

    Best controller for anything is Steam Controller. People are sleeping on the best controller ever.

  • October 17, 2019 at 11:59 pm

    "Can't live without the cuda". Wow, I didn't know that rtx can run a life support.

  • October 18, 2019 at 12:09 am

    XBOX 360 for pc still the best controller!

  • October 18, 2019 at 2:06 am

    you can get four RX 5700 for one 2080ti
    That's, I think, better combined rendering power than one 2080ti
    Plus there are mobos out there that allow you to put four of them in at once.

    Regarding the whole Threadripper socket change, I get it for some people that invest very heavily in a motherboard, that there'd be some good value in upgrading just the CPU. However, in my experience with mid-market CPUs and motherboards, I've found selling both the old CPU and motherboard together and purchasing a new CPU and motherboard to be the most cost effective/efficient and practical most of the time anyway. I'd much rather progression of features, capability, and performance each generation where it makes sense than too much focus on past socket compatibility.
