AMD RYZEN 9 3950 cpu

This CPU is a very high powered CPU that is more aimed towards a gamer user who has lots of extra money to spend on a high quality build. It’s got lots of processing power for any needs for any type of creator also, running efficiently with something recommended like an AMD RX 5700 graphics card.

It is a 3rd generation series AMD processor that fits an AM4 socket. It includes,

  • 16 cores
  • 3.5 GHz
  • 8MB L2 Cache
  • 64MB L3 Cache
  • DDR4 3200 Memory type
  • 4.0 PCI

It’s power is noticeable when considering its 72MB cache memory and its PCIe 4.0 speeds, 16 cores and 32 processing threads, giving double graphics and storage bandwidth, it delivers a smooth gaming experience for any professional, looking for that new CPU to give their experience a lot more edge. It has been considered the most powerful 16 Core processor that has been made.

I would recommend this CPU to anyone who has the money to pay for it, since it goes for 799.99 on Newegg.com. It is a great CPU for any Gamer or designer and creator to process their art, videos, photos, games and many more. It is definitely created for professional people considering the price tag, but investing this kind of money into a CPU can be efficient and future proof any cpu difficulties you might run into for a while into the future. 








AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Review

<![CDATA[Image result for ryzen 1800x

This is a review on the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU manufactured by AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) and its capabilities for gaming computers and overall performance. AMD has been suffering for the past couple of decades trying to keep up with Intel since their first CPU was introduced in 1991. There is no doubt that Intel has released superior CPU’s compared to most of AMD’s, but now Intel has met their match. AMD has managed to dig themselves out of a hole with the new introduction of the Ryzen series that was made to combat the Skylake, and Kaby Lake Processors from Intel, and I have to say… it has done a very good job at it. The 1800X is the top of the line in the Ryzen series and its performance is amazing, for a much smaller price than most of Intel’s expensive, mediocre processors. Its the CPU that will destroy graphics, and not your game.

Image result for amd headquartersAMD was founded in 1969 and their headquarters is located in Sunnyvale California. They didn’t get into the CPU  business until 1991 with their AM386 processors. (Wikipedia) AMD has come along way with their architecture and their computing capabilities, but they have always been reasonable on prices which makes AMD perfect for budget worried PC fanatics. I found the 1800X on Toms Hardware and decided to test it myself. I was blown away by the performance of the chip giving the same; if not higher, frame rate and graphics quality. The new Zen architecture makes the Ryzen series exchange blows with Intels I-5s and I-7s. The 1800X can be found on Newegg for $499.99.

Ryzen Has really made a great comeback with the Ryzen Chips, and have made themselves a superpower to fear by Intel now. The Ryzen chips are cheaper than their Intel counterparts and even out performs them in a lot of areas. The Ryzen 1800X has overclocking capabilities, and its multiple cores allow for easy multitasking and multiple threading.  The Ryzen 1800X is the best price for its performance and is overall is great in any PC build. The Overall Benchmark of the 1800X on Passmark is 15421.  (the highest CPU Mark is 27428 and the lowest is 79).
Here are some reviews of the 1800X:

  • Toms Hardware: “Ryzen 7 does deliver”
  •  TechPowerUp: “It brings the company back to competitiveness against behemoth Intel”
  • TechRadar: ” absolutely decimating the competition when it comes to price versus performance.”
