    5 Ghz :eek: (almost, but most likely attainable -this time- with PBO+Auto OC)

    What could I possibly do with so much power, SO MUCH POWAAAAR!!!111

    When is the official release? Thought it was the 20th, today? Can we expect reviews soon? :)

    To beat it, Intel needs over 6Ghz overclock :D

    AMD's MHzs are fast, while Intel's ones are abundant))

    That's insane. AMD's 12 core is beating there 16 core from prior generations. AMD is beating Intel in singe threaded performance across the board. Whoa. This is going to be a huge win for AMD!

    Until AMD fully reveals Big Navi. These CPUs releases November 8.

    And they look GOOOOOOOOOOD.

    I think the 20th is the old date. November 5th seems to be the new official release date.

    Lol.... if im not mistaken to mistook a 5GHz CPU to make me understand that
    FX-8350 for an example (that "can" hit 5Ghz) is "PaWAAAAAAR".......;)

    If thats the multiscore AMD is toast.

    An Intel 8 core is 9135 and the new AMD 16 cores powwwah is just 13605 ????? Even the 5900x doesn't scale that well !
    Look at the 2 cores difference on Intel 8 vs 10 cores, lol.

    Not sure why you're laughing, I've seen many criticisms about Geekbench.

    Hell, even my old Threadripper 2950X scores over 14000 in GB5 with ram running at 2800.

    It's nice that we have these rather cheap monster CPUs with 12-16 cores + SMT, but the reality is that the types of software that can take advantage of them in a home/office environment is very, very limited.

    I actually meant this literally.
    I have no idea what kind of work I could give to a 5900X to actually benefit from the 12 cores :confused:

    I wish AMD would offer an option for a single-die 6-8 core CPU that boosts to the max clocks technologically possible, without reserving the max boosts and best dies only to the expensive 12-16 cores.
    (Something like 3300X that is not vaporware...)

    ---
    Going back to the many core CPUs, in my own workflow or entertainment, I think in total I use stuff that uses all 8 cores of my 3700X for 2-3 hours per month max.
    The games I play are older and indie titles, which are lightly threaded, barely using 2, maybe 4 threads.
    I work with Photoshop, which is known to use very few threads (it's basically a single-threaded software)

    Those 2-3 hours in which I put all 8 cores to work are two things - Archival of my stuff using 7-zip, and encoding of a short video report of what I did.
    Basically, I could do just fine with just a 3300X ... but that CPU didn't exist when I switched to AM4, and neither when I bought the 3700X...

    Yo. Core i9-10980XE with 18 cores scores 14762 multi-core

    Not really sure why you don't know to look into what software scales well.

    Exactly why I as thinking, going to wait for proper reviews but this is definitely diff from previous years..
    At 500$ vs 750$ this time around Intel is the one with the compelling product

    Big jump in single core performance, which is what would be most noticeable for most software. My 3900X scored 1233 (now 1305). Big jump to 1605 o_O

    Look at the current top CPU charts,... Intel is on top with only 1495 single core... https://browser.geekbench.com/processor-benchmarks

    It is going to get de-throned...

    Unless Intel now bribes them again to re-jig the benchmark software to put them on top again...
