AMD destroys itself

  • Published on Jul 19, 2019
  • It's a 12-core WAR as AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X goes up against their own Threadripper 2920X, which recently saw a hefty price cut after the Ryzen 3000 series launch.

    Yo yo yo it's worth pointing out that there have been some crazy sales on Threadripper chips lately due to the Ryzen 3000 launch. From what I've seen, the 3900X still holds the best bang for the buck, but a good deal could easily sway someone to Threadripper if they're looking for more IO and memory capacity.

      Trick behind them making threadripper obsolete is to add a media point and use it as marketing for Ryzen 9. Threadripper is going next level, its based on Epyc architecture and chipset, so likelyhood is that 'High end, high core count' cpus from AMD are going to be insane and match the high end intels in price, while having double core count & performance + more pcie lanes (gen 4) and more memory channels. literally taking Xeon and intel X series cpus out off the market

      an amazing deal on a threadripper chip still doesnt negate the fact that the platform is so much more expensive as well, you would have to give me the threadripper chip for free for me to even consider investing in the platform instead of just banging a 3900x in my x470 board instead, in fact i would seriously consider throwing the motherboard in as well as a sweetener, an aorous extreme or something then ill take it ;-).........the liquid cooled one please

      The 3900x scores are invalid. New Ryzen sees massive performance loss at scores higher than 60c

    Hmmm... a 3rd gen top of SKU chip based on 7nm manufacturing and sells for $850 is better than a 2nd gen one based on 12nm Manufacturing and sells for $620? .....Shocker!

    =>amd's new product is slightly faster than its previous product, which has been entirely normal in this industry since the 1980s.

    okay, I seriously don't get it. can someone please explain to me? I'm not really into AMD stuff so I don't know the "common sense" of the brand, like which model is better, faster sucks, how to judge against intel... etc. All I understand is that one CPU is better than another but I do not understand why this relates to AMD destroying itself. Can someone please explain? Appreciate it

    Hahaha what else can we expect from this AMD Butthurt channel. The 9900k still beats the 3900 in premiere (thanks to it's igpu which amd does not have), Photoshop and similar apps plus of course gaming .
    Oh and no compatibility crap issues either. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Alex Marin

    First and second gen Threadripper were within 5-7% from one another in terms of performance so going 1st from 3rd gen Ryzen is around 28-33% uplift. The 1920X was retailing for months for $330 since last year and now sits at $293. So why should I feel that I am getting a good deal buying a 500-dollar 3900X that at best delivers around 30% higher performance than a 1920X (and which by the way has larger total PCie bandwidth and more memory channels)? Wasn’t that the exact same argument against Intel when comparing the 2700X with the 9900K? Double standard?

    If Intel didn't have that i7 8th Gen with over clocking. Intel will be closing down. And for price? AMD has them beat at every turn with the cores of their chips. And with Sony putting in a order with AMD for 10 million chips for the PS5. Intel is FKED. Next it will Be Microsoft putting in a huge order for AMD chips for their next Xbox.

    The big expectations annually by AMD fans regarding the changes and improvements that have been annually occurring cannot continue indefinitely. I am, however happy to see AMD receiving some spot light. The first AMD chip I ever purchased was in the mid 90s, it was a 486 DX4 -133 I believe. My last favourite CPU before the boot kicking Intel Core 2 Duo arrived in early 2000s was an AMD 2500+. Since then I did pick up almost 2 years ago a Ryzen 5 1600, which I am very happy with...cheers.

    Definitely not regretting ordering the 3900x now. Can't wait for it to get here. I'll go from a 2-core 2.0Ghz i7 laptop cpu, to a 12-core 3.8Ghz Ryzen.

    I would've bought the 3900X but I got the 9900KF for $419.99 and the Aorus Z390 PRO WIFI for $189.99.
    Whereas the 39KX is $500 and the motherboard I wanted was $300. $200 more but for what I need the i9 9900KF will be more than enough. And I needed new DDR4 3200 also.
