    Whatever happened to the promise made by AMD that Ryzen family will keep supporting 64bit window$ 7 (unlike their "competition", the not-so-intelligent one)? Lately I hear many people complaining of not being able to install w7 on ryzen-based machines.

    Can't really agree with the recommendation, if taking Value into account.

    It feels like a pointless product to me when the almost identical 3700X is around for way less, as highlighted in the conclusion.

    Even with all my complaints about W10, W7 is no where superior and W10 copies are practically being given away at today's prices.

    I like the 3800x, It probably worth some extra compared to 3700x so you can get highest clocks possible. 8 cores is enough.

    Btw, HH in the first page (intruduction) there is a statement 3800x is 8c/12t. :)

    Oh, I'd be bankrupt to the level of a homeless dude if I need to compensate all my typos! :)

    Windows 7 in 2019 lol, you'd have to be joking right. OMG the public education system has failed so hard...

    Great review Hilbert!

    I thought Microsoft controlled that?

    "Microsoft states it no longer supports newer CPUs with Windows 7 because the OS is in the Extended Support stage since 2015."

    "Superiority" is not an issue here - we're talking about being able to install w7 for different reasons:
    1. having programs that do not run well under w10 or cannot even be installed there (due to the w10's infamous feature to "reject" the "obsolete" apps and programs)
    2. having some older hardware
    3. wanting to have more control over the system(s) (either on a single-boot or a multi-boot machine)
    But you might be too young or too inexperienced to fully understand this, so I don't blame you for your simple-mindedness ("not everything that flies is meant to be eaten" - a Serbian proverb in a loose translation).
    ------------------------------
    @airbud7@
    Why should be microbe-soft even asked to do anything about it? Aren't AMD and not-very-intelligent-any-more in charge of writing their "inf" file packages to support THEIR hardware under an already well known op system?

    What promise? I thought AMD made it clear they had no intention on supporting Windows 7 since the first Ryzen release?

    Anyway - it's dual-effort. AMD may have to provide the correct drivers but it is up to MS to implement them. Considering MS still hasn't done anything about their scheduler issues with Ryzen for W10, I don't see why they'd care to do anything for W7.

    1. Windows 10 has compatibility mode and sandbox mode, on top of that VM is a thing. Screenfilter will stop apps from running, but literally that's an extra click.
    2. Windows 10 requirements are fairly low, 1 ghz cpu, 1gb ram, dx9 enabled gpu, that's pretty low.
    3. You still have access to registry, MSconfig, system32 folder, and so on. If you have the pro version you still have group policy and RDT access.

    Conclusion

    720p difference between 9900k and 3800x is going to creep at 1440p with 4000 series Nvidia card in other words AMD cpu still suck for gaming.

    I do not know... my old i7 990x with ddr3 on a x58 with a sata 2 SSD on windows 7 feels snappier than my windows 10 at default on an athlon 2700x with ddr4 and samsung 970 evo.

    I have no idea why.
