AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Review

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is by far one of the best deals I have gotten for a fast CPU that is fast and will not let any occasion down. In the time that I’ve had this CPU, I have had absolutely no problems with it and it runs almost anything that you can put your mind to, which is probably why it got such a good score on Passmark, with a score of 39010, and a Single Thread Rating of 2710. 

This CPU is also priced very well, at $579.99. The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X has 16 cores and 32 threads, which allows this CPU to do much more than your average PC. On Newegg, this CPU got a whole 5 out of 5 stars, coming from 187 different ratings.

This CPU also takes an AM4 socket. This socket is decent but it is even better when the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is connected to it, giving the CPU a base speed of 3.5GHZ and a max speed of 4.7GHZ. One thing I do recommend though, is a newer type of RAM to give it an even better performance.
