This early July was much warmer than expected for PC hardware enthusiasts.
AMD has downloaded all its new 7nm lineup to the market. New Ryzen 3000 series processors, new motherboards with X570 chipset and new 5700 series graphics cards. All the youtube sites and channels of the sector have mobilized to offer the public as many benchmarks as possible, in the week of testing that has lasted the longest time in this part. If English does not scare you, I advise you to take a look at the coverage offered by GamerNexus and HardwareUnboxed /Techspot.
The situation can be summarized as follows: the new Ryzen 3000 series have still reduced the distance with Intel's 9000 series. Their performance in set up at human prices is virtually indistinguishable. These new Ryzen do not reach the 5Ghz as their counterpart, but sit at 4.3Ghz. In pushed configurations, those that point to 240fps with 1000 € graphics cards, Intel still manages to win, but with a price performance ratio that is decidedly worse than in the past. The real innovation is at the top end of the market. The Ryzen 3900X offers 12 core at a bargain price and manages to be noticeably better than all 12 core processors of the HEDT past platforms. In short, considering also their lower consumption compared to the competition, will become the recommended purchase in any price range.
The new X570 platform has great potential thanks to its abundant pciexpress lines and support for the 4.0 standard. His problem at the moment is the cost. That undermines the excellent price / performance ratio of the Ryzen 3000. Man is desperate, if you only look for CPU performance, don't worry: there are no drops of any kind on the x470 platform already on the market, far more economical.
As for the graphics cards instead, the 5700 and 5700Xt seem to fit together perfectly in the middle of the new Nvidia lineup. The 5700 is positioned between the 2060 and the 2060 super, while the 5700xt between the 2070 and the super 2070. Even the efficiency of architecture has increased considerably thanks to structural change and the 7nm process. However, he cannot do better than the competition from this point of view. If AMD had not made the price cut before the launch, its solutions would have been absolutely unattractive. Now they show themselves as a viable alternative, even if buying them means giving up ray tracing, or the turing encoder. If you are undecided about what to buy now, take a look at the next few days nostre guide on the components, which will be updated to make room for new AMD products.
