        Crushing every console port at 1440p native and playing every RT demo with light RT settings. Unlikely I'll stick with AMD when I eventually upgrade but I'll enjoy their golden generation for years to come. RDNA2 was just too good, it makes RDNA3 look pointless in comparison. 8000 series is just going to be the 7000 series but fixed to provide the projected perf before 7000 launched so that might be worth looking at. honestly instead of another component I'd rather get an OLED monitor when they get cheaper, more reliable and windows fixes the text issues. I know OLED burn-in isn't an issue but I'm not dropping over $500 on a monitor that still has burn-in risk.

        >At this point just wait for 5xxx series or massive sales of 4xxx that will come with it.

      That's how your motherboard is supposed to work. If you use only two sticks of RAM, they go in slot 2 and 4. If you use four sticks, then you also fill up 1 and 3. You never just use 1 and 3, it will lead to worse performance. Don't ask me why, I don't make up the rules, that's just how it goes.

          I already answered your question. You'll be fine if you choose to use all 4 slots, you won't get a loss in performance, you might even get a boost in some games and applications.

          If you go with 4 slots buy a kit of 4 sticks of RAM, if you buy 2 kits they might not run as advertised. 4 sticks of RAM can run slightly faster (~10%) in CPU limited scenarios, at least with Ryzen CPUS.

            Nah, if you know anything about software development, it’s not just games that are horribly optimized. Websites and other software are designed around being easy for the programmers to make at the cost of optimization which takes more time and has “messy” code. Devs are straight up told not to worry about optimization because the hardware is so strong these days you can brute force through poorly designed applications, which makes them practically impossible to run on older hardware. In the old days, things had to be optimized well because computers were just significantly weaker. So they optimized around speed, not “developer comfort and ease”.

          Well, AMD is going to stop at mid-range next generation. So it's going to be the perfect time for Nvidia to milk their rich customers as much as possible, AMD won't even -attempt- to compete at that price range. There's a good chance the 7900XTX is going to stay AMD's fastest card until RDNA5 in 2026+.

          Wouldn't surprise me if Nvidia prices the 5090 $3000 or even more. The 4090 currently sells for $2000~ after all, and the 5090 may end up being 50% faster based on the SM amounts.
          I'm a $300-500 GPU kind of customer, so they could price it $10000 for all I care, but yeah it's definitely going to suck for high-end buyers.

      I wonder if they will give both CCDs their own cache or if they will build some kind of cache bridge connecting both CCDs so that one CCD can access the cache of both CCDs at the same time

      Hard to say considering how badly optimized the modern REEngine is
      Not even the best CPU currently on the market can get stable 60 FPS in Dragons Dogma 2 - you need fake frames to get a somewhat stable experience there even with the most expensive and powerful setup possible.
      And considering how badly World ran initially it's probably gonna be the same with Wilds
      If you really want a stable experience in that game it's best to wait as long as possible for the best CPU possible. GPU choice shouldn't really matter though.
      And for RAM 32 GB is whats still perfectly okay to aim for - 64 GB RAM is overkill.

      The 7000 series is designed to run at peak temps. Basically it boosts itself to the thermal limit and stays there. There are ways to tone that shit down with power caps or just a plain ole lower thermal limit (you can turn down the voltage too for less heat and potentially more speed). I fricking hate it too because I don't need the extra 3% performance all that heat and power consumption is giving me.

      Look on Youtube for tutorials for your motherboard on how to do all that shit. Or install Ryzen Master (especially if undervolting so you can do test runs) and set the shit there but it's probably better done in BIOS.

      Well, AMD is going to stop at mid-range next generation. So it's going to be the perfect time for Nvidia to milk their rich customers as much as possible, AMD won't even -attempt- to compete at that price range. There's a good chance the 7900XTX is going to stay AMD's fastest card until RDNA5 in 2026+.

      Wouldn't surprise me if Nvidia prices the 5090 $3000 or even more. The 4090 currently sells for $2000~ after all, and the 5090 may end up being 50% faster based on the SM amounts.
      I'm a $300-500 GPU kind of customer, so they could price it $10000 for all I care, but yeah it's definitely going to suck for high-end buyers.

      The amount AMD's CPU department mogs their GPU department is embarrassing.

        >The amount AMD's CPU department mogs their GPU department is embarrassing.
        I don't understand this narrative. Not that long ago, AMD GPUs were a complete meme: the RX 580 is half the performance of a GTX 1080 for the same power consumption. Vega 64 came out a year later, used HBM2, consumed 300W... and matched the 1080 in performance. That's how wide the gap used to be.
        But now that they aren't even that far behind... Radeon is FRICKING DEAD apparently? I don't get it. AMD GPUs are way better now (compared to the competition, of course) than in 2013-2020.

          The problem is they aren't even that aggressive with what they do have. They could have really gained market share with the Covid boom but they were happy getting Nvidia's overpriced table scraps. It feels like they don't care.

          Meanwhile the CPU has X3D which feels like such a leap forward for gaming well games I play and they're constantly putting the screws on Intel with price.

            During COVID they were already selling everything they were able to produce. They were fricked hard by the timing of the pandemic, because they were contractually obliged to produce consoles instead of GPUs. AMD cards were better that generation... and they couldn't even make the product.
            On the other hand Nvidia chose a node no one else wanted because it was shit. Everyone made fun of them for this choice... until the pandemic happened and they were able to flood the market (and by market I mean mining rigs) with their products. Jensen never misses, how does he do it?! Even when he acts like a moron, it turns out he was a genius all along.

            Also, AMD can't really start a price war with Nvidia right now BECAUSE their product is worse. And by "worse" I mean it's more expensive to produce for the same performance. So AMD lowers the price... and Nvidia does the same. AMD lowers the price again... and Nvidia does the same. Until AMD is no longer profitable while Nvidia still is.
            I'm not saying they aren't behind Nvidia, they definitely are. All I'm saying is that their GPUs used to be a lot worse, but people called them "underdogs" not "they're fricking dead, it's over, gg, just give up."

            It's the other way around in CPUs. AMD CPUs are waaay cheaper to produce, so they can be as aggressive as they want because it's Intel that's getting fricked the most.

            The non 90 5000 series SKUs look like shit. Some of them even have LESS streaming multiprocessors than before. RIP if you bought a 4090. And RIP if you buy a 5080, they can't give you an the same 384 bit memory bus as the 4090 even though they should.

            As I said, we have no idea what the price is going to be. People wouldn't mind a slightly faster 4080 for $700, for example.

                That's exactly what happened not that long ago. AMD launched the 7800XT and cut the price of the 7900XT and 7900XTX: all of a sudden these cards started selling better than the 4070, 4070Ti and 4080 respectively.
                So Nvidia was forced to launch the SUPER refreshes, basically improving performance-per-dollar by around 20%. This was effectively a price cut. And now we're back to square one: Nvidia is selling better again, but both companies are making 20% less money. Except this is hurting AMD way more because their profit margins were lower to begin with.

                The 4090 doesn't count because it has no competition. They could price it $3000, it would sell the same to the same people: if anything they priced it too cheap originally, they probably expected RDNA3 to be better than it was.

          You misunderstand the issue, Radeon is FRICKING DEAD because consoles are dead. Providing APUs for consoles was their main income and now that both Xbox and Playstation are circling the drain, the money has dried up.
          They have an incredible uphill battle to gain ground in the PC market because they've been slow in matching Nvidia's tech while not actually having a reasonable price advantage. They'd have to make RDNA5 a real contender in every metric to save themselves.

        >X870 have USB4, more NVME lanes and PCIE 5.0 support.
        Except you literally get B650 boards with PCI-E 5.0 for GPU and NVME now.

        Most B650 motherboards don't have PCIE 5.0 support.

          Sure, but there are plenty of them that have it now. PCI-E 5 is not a defining characteristic of X870 anymore.

          Not that it matters anyway. It's completely irrelevant for GPUs and for NVMEs it's only really useful if you're moving lots of shit all the time.

          B650e all have PCIE 5.0 support and Gen 5 NVME support.
          The difference between B650e and X670e is just the fricking price.

        Based on what AMD has shown, it's much faster in multi-threaded applications (+50% in Cinebench with the same amount of cores), but only 20-ish% faster in games. The 7800X3D is still going to be faster.

        Same happened with Gen 7 when games were designed around playing on the Xbox 360 which lasted a total of 8 years on the market and was already considered underpowered compared to the PS3 before it launched.

        Yeah but I didn't expect my CPU from 2009 to BTFO the CPU inside 2013's consoles. Xbox 360 and PS3 were insanely fast at launch, it's just that as you said that generation lasted way too long.
        The biggest improvement of the 8th generation of consoles was (V)RAM: that's why from 2013 to 2015 the minimum VRAM requirements for AAA videogames went from 256-512MB to 2-3GB.

    I used to deeply resent current PC prices, but then I gained some perspective and realized PC gaming is actually a pretty cheap hobby. The only justification for not being *prepared* to spend 2-3k every 5 years on a hobby is being financially unable to, which is fair and sensible (but then there are cheaper alternatives, you can spend 1-1.5k every 5 years). Otherwise you obviously don't really care about the hobby much and might as well not consider it a hobby.

    Most other hobbies require you to spend that kind of money yearly or even more often.

      I've used the same case and PSU in every build from my original college PC in '07 until my most recent 4090 build and only swapped out because I didn't want to shove a 3x12pin adapter in my case
      actual cost to upgrade and keep a mid-range build is like $500 every 6-8 years for a CPU/mobo/RAM, GPU upgrades are the only really big expense

    3900x 3090 here, unfortunately any upgrade would be a full overhaul and would cost a boatload in today's market. Probably still good for the next 5 years though

      Just sell your 3090 on secondhand market if you consider buying a 5000 series.

    Ive been holding off on getting 7800X3D for a long time and now zen 5 is due out in a month so I guess I will decide based on benchmarks comparing them and if 7800X3D is still better I'll get it.

    im not waiting aother half a year for X3D zen 5

      Even AMD says the initial sen5 lineup won't beat a 78000x3d for vidya.

    There's no games that approach anywhere near what the 7800X3D can do and even the 5800X3D is overkill still. It's ironically all come back to basics of graphical processing being the bottleneck.

    My B450 Pro4 won the "Crystal Oscilator" lottery so it became victim of the humidity.
    Any good Mobo for a 2600x and 2x trident z 16gb clocked at 3600?

    If I can afford the 7800X3D but not the 4090/7900TXT, what graphics card should I get? I'm upgrading from a 2014 laptop, but can't afford above 2000 €. So far I have:
