Good afternoon,

Just a bit of advice or discussion regarding the new chips needed please. On November the 5th the new ryzens come out and I might purchase on that day without benchmarks due to ques and delays first come first serve.

Going in blind what do you think will be the best gaming chip. the 5800x or 5900x?

The rest of my system will be 3070 rog strix
32gb ram vengeance 3200mhz
Aio 240mm cooler corsair
Asus tuf x570 motherboard
750 gold psu rmx corsair
980 pro 1tb

Kind regards,

Ape

You are comparing a R9 to a R7, naturally the multi-core performance of the R9 will be better than the R7, in games that are core heavy the R9 will have an advantage in the R7, but the last gen zen2 the difference between performance in 3800x and 3900x were neck and neck and even my 3600x were able to keep up with the Big brothers, so it's your choice if gonna do heavy lifting then R9 might the right choice, and if you gonna just game 5800x will be the choice. but since they are new ones performance can't predicted much.
