    It would be useful to have some older processors on the comparisons list, in particular the Ryzen 2000 series like 2600 and 2700 that I think a lot of people with B450 mobos will be looking to upgrade from (me included).

    No wonder AMD felt confident in upping the pricing.

    Can't remember many Hexus reviews with nothing of note in the bad section.
    Resounding success. Just watching Linus and what he has to say...

    I'd have maybe put those lower memory performance in there personally, although I do wonder if there are some settings/bios updates needed because they seem a little 'out of place'.

    It's nice to see the gain in multi threaded is real though, albeit a little lower than the rumour thread a while back (it as about 10300, versus the 10100 hexus got)

    Re: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X

    The R5 3600x i plopped in my friends system, seem like a good choice by me given the amount of money he was willing to spend on a computer.
    TBH for gaming, much better bang 4 buck than my TR 1920X, and even worse for what i use my computer for a 3600X would have been overkill

    Be interesting to run some of these tests again once the board partners give us BIOS support for the B450 boards, see how much the 550 chipset actually brings to the party..

    Really nice to see how they under promised and over delivered, let the product speak for itself.

    "Ryzen 9 wins all the gaming tests at FHD"

    No it doesn't

    It only wins the average framerate tests

    It looses the minimum framerate tests to Intel

    And it still will only give under 30fps in the most busy mmorpg map events like in Guild Wars 2

    I love the lineup and especially the fits all models kind of idealogy with AMD, it helps people that can only upgrade one thing at a time.

    Re: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X

    I know things should be tested at stock setting but has anyone seen what sort of performance improvements come from running faster RAM/IF, IIRC most 3 series would comfortably run 3600Mhz ram, 1800Mhz IF. Do the 5 series have roughly the same limit on IF speeds and does going over stock net much of a performance gain?

    Re: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 9 5900X

    My threadripper 1920X will run 3600 MHZ easy but just 32GB, 48 or 64GB it absolutely will not run at those speeds.

    Eh a few percent off in a benchmark can't really be counted as a downside lol

    I had a AMD Athlon 3200 some 12 years ago.

    Now AMD is back with at >10 x faster chip - times many more cores:
    https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-9-5950X-vs-AMD-Athlon-64-3200-/4086vsm7063

    AMD, Thanks for returning to the battle after many years of Core2Duo, Sandy bridge... supremacy.
