    I9 9900k vs. Ryzen 9 3900x


    They seem to be around the same price. Which one would u pick? Which one will last me the longest?

    What I want to do:
    -gaming, video editing, multi-tasking. Not wanting to close background applications like chrome etc. Do all of this simultaneously.

    -run multiple monitors 2-3
    -want to game at at least 1440p while getting 120 fps. 4k maybe. (Currently gaming at 1080p)
    -i may overclock sometime in the future

    I don't game much as I used to but speed and no-compromise is something I want. I want a cpu that will be fast even when I stopped playing games. Want cpu to last ~7 years or so.

    This will probably be my last build.

    Well I have the 9900K and I'm happy with it. You can check "My Computers" (system 1) for my system specs. I'm not doing 4K or using multiple monitors yet, but I don't think it'd would hinder the CPU if I did as those are more GPU than CPU dependent.

    I am a gamer basically gaming at 1080p (monitor is a 24 inch NEC @ 1920 x 1200). And my system flies. Currently playing Division 2 at maxed settings on a Radeon RVII.

    Anyway I guess it depends on which brand of CPU you're interested in - AMD vs. Intel. I'm an Intel man so that's what I go with. That said, I'd look at the motherboard more so than the CPU as currently the AMD based motherboards have the newer tech features (right now). Example: the AMD 570 boards support PCI 4.0 whereas the Z390 boards are still at 3.0.

    All that said, I'm still an Intel person so unless AMD completely blows Intel out the water, I'll stick with Intel. That's me.

    for me i'm not loyal to any brand, but i never used amd cpus before. I do like how the amd based mobos have newer features atm like you said. Also like the idea how amd mobo supports newer cpus longer than Intel does.

    both cpu seems very close. I might need to consider other factors like heat, energy usage, and how the ryzen 9 comes with a heatsink + cooler

    Hi,
    3900x or 3000 series in general looking pretty darn impressive

    Last I noticed they are having issues hitting advertised turbo clocks likely to be fixed via bios updates though
    4.6 turbo on 12 core 3900x even if doing 4.5 all core temperature depending on cooling system is darn impressive

    You can check out some cinebench r.20 scores and temps here they are a head I believe but 12 cores not really that surprising against 8 core 9900k

    I'm sure there's some comparisons online. And ironically one other thing to look at is price as AMD made clear they aren't in the budget market like they were in the past so their systems could actually be more costly; especially where the motherboard is concerned. You also need to be careful of the RAM you get as I've seem reports of RAM compatibility issues.

    Again, you can research these things. Good luck.

    Ran across this 3800x 8 core a minute ago like I said pretty impressive higher than all 9900k's on this forum

    Check some reviews. Custom PC magazine is a good mag for that kind of thing.You can find it on news stands. There is section which includes their recommendations at each price point for pc builders.

    Get AMD x570 with the new Ryzen, CL14 Sasung b-die, and a PCIE 4.0 SSD!
    I just built one. OMG fast as F! No Issues whatsoever! Check my sys spec.

    I'm thinking about building a new rig for my son in the next 6 months, and I'm looking to go with a Ryzen 3 for his build over the intel. More threads, less expensive, great performance, newer mobo features.
