Also, the 5950X isn't a gaming-focused CPU. It's a productivity/workstation CPU. So Intel's comparison is very very flawed. Having the 5800X3D with proper bars, like Linus did shines the truth on this.

Oh and even AMD omitted the 5800X3D in their 7000 series gaming charts. Why? Because the 5800X3D is the gaming king and much cheaper (CPU + platform) than the 7000 series.

If you just watched YouTube reviews, you’ll know the 11900k was not a popular chip, but that’s mainly because it was an 8 core whereas I9’s are supposed to be 10 plus cores. But as a gaming pc, you’ll get between 5-10 more fps with the Ryzen chip over the intel chip but for $70 less and cod mw2 (if you’re into that sorta thing) it’s actually a pretty good deal for a beastly i7+ errr I mean i9
11900k performed worse than a 10900k and was basically a space heater that ran lava hot

For gaming Zen 4 might make more sense once B650 hits the market if the actual prices are closer to the starting price of $125 and not absolute trash. I'd probably lean towards a 7600X if the total platform cost was closer, but right now I don't even want to do a new build.

Until they release the 7000 series 3D versions, I wouldn't bother buying this now really unless you already have a 5000 series machine and don't care about anything but gaming performance and don't plan to upgrade anytime soon to 7000 series

Anyone think this will go lower on BF? I also need a new mobo and if I'm waiting anyway for that, hoping I can also wait for this.

If you'll need a new mobo, better avoid the 5000 altogether for now and just wait for 7000 to drop in price.

The am4 mobos aren't compatible with am5, but am5 will be future proof

Should also mention the intel PC was using some fast DDR5 5600Mhz while the AMD one was using DDR4 3200Mhz, not even 3600Mhz.

Sure, but that would mean paying a double premium on the brand new line of CPUs and mobos. Not sure I come out ahead in that case.

Depending on how the prices trend you might come out ahead in the long term. If October/November brings more sane motherboard pricing for AMD the value proposition of an AM5 build is a bit more favourable. AMD had a bit of a total platform cost problem next to Intel at the moment so it will be interesting to see what if anything they do yo resolve it.

Don't buy now, unless you're in a hurry. Just wait for mobo + cpu pricing to go down

It's the 1080TI of CPUs.
If you hunt for sales you can get:

Budget B550 for ~$80
Budget 32 GB of 3600 Mhz CL18 RAM for ~$110-$120 (depending on if you want to pay the RGB tax)
Slot in the 5800x3d for $480
Slot in a 6650XT at the new lower MSRP or wait for RDNA3, and you've got a killer system for cheap.

I spent $80 on my MSI B550M Pro VDH WIFI mobo and got the 5800x3d with the amazon new business account discount and I couldn't be happier. With my 6800XT it's pretty much a long term 1440p machine.

We're at the beginning of the phase where AMD and Intel are gonna go HAM with innovation due to competition. Rocketlake and Zen 4 are already neck and neck. Buy the older system now that's on par with next gen Zen 4 gaming performance, hold out for like 5-7 years, and reap the benefits when inevitably one company completely dominates the other and starts being lazy again with innovation, and buy a system AFTER the innovation rocket loses steam.

And hope they figure out how to get more performance without jacking up the power consumption and thermals

They need to find a way to be more efficient.

An i7-12700F (no graphics) is also $420 and also comes with Call of Duty, would it be faster than an i9-11900?

Luckily for us NA breakers is capped at like 1600w or something before it trips, so team green blue and red all know they can't design components that will trip the power...

Or Jensen can be like, yeah if you're not rich enough to afford to redesign your residential circuitry to use our 9090TI, you're not our target market.

Yes it will be better in every meaningful way. The catch is you have to make sure the motherboard is and is capable of running it with power limits disabled. The motherboard choice will be important in either case so make sure you do some research to avoid leaving performance on the table.

^ What he said.
Can't do a proper comparison.
Can't do a proper chart.
Intel double fail.

Different note, Jarrod just came out with 2 videos comparing Ryzen CPUs. Very good information.
& much better charts than intel.

The 5800x3d makes no sense in that build with that tier of GPU. Might as well save $300 and get a Ryzen 5600 if you're pairing with a 6600xt-6800xt, especially at 1440p+.

You can always slot in another GPU a few years down later.

A few years down later, whatever i5 or r5 will run circles around the 5800x3d for $200 with cheap mobo and ddr5. Might as well rebuild a cheap system then.
