I feel we are talking super computers, something NASA might use in it's space program.  Nice to see AMD is doing well with there processors.

I quickly read the article, 51% for AMD vs 49% for Intel but Intels Core i9
9900K 8 core 16 thread may give Intel sales a boost. It can run about 5 Ghz. Price is about $580, for me this is a super computer we used to read about.

From that it seems like they are neck and neck and one goes ahead a little as they launch a new range. I think that's a healthy way for things to be.

It's 3 years 3 months since I got my 6 core Intel, I see no reason to replace it yet though.

I wanted to see how things are in the CPU world. Found a little article giving an overview, thought it might interest others as AMD does well.

https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/best-processors

Comparing my now 4 year old rig with the Ryzen 2700X I can't see much benefit from a new build just yet:

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-5820K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-7-2700X/2579vs3958

But if I were building one today that would probably be the one I picked. They love it on Amazon:

Ohh, I'm not really thinking of a new build just yet. Good advice though Smiley

Looks good  Cool

I voted undecided as I can't see me needing one. If I were buying today I would get one though. I'll see how much longer this build lasts - I'm surprised the liquid cooler is still going strong - I bet now I said that the thing will go belly up.

I thought you might be interested  Smiley

Just got to hold fire until the 4000 series of chips start getting put in the laptops, shouldn't be long now, the 6 core Ryzen 5's should be a nice bang for bucks option, in the vid he's only showing the 8 core.

It's a bit confusing but the mobile 3000 chips are only the equivalent of the desktops 2000 chips, to get 7nm in a laptop you need the 4000 mobile Ryzen.
