Hopefully they learned from the diablo immortal fallout.

I have been pretty happy with mine so far, but I did notice that one of my weeb games (Shining Resonance Refrain) that previously had no problems on my 8700k/5700XT will visually glitch out and slowly just crash to desktop within a minute or two of starting up on the 11400F/6600 system. IDK what component/software it is causing it, but it's the only game that does that.

Reinstalled the game multiple times, DDU'd etc.

my computer probably is overdue for a rebuild but I haven't bought a new SSD yet and if I go through the trouble I want to go 2tb nvme and stop having 11ty drives and a pci-e ssd :o

you must be new to AMD :bowrofl:

hasn't changed in decades
Personally I must admit my preference for Intel > AMD in the CPU space...The last time I used AMD was a Ryzen 5 1600 which was a pain in the ass with memory support and random weird behaviors (gave it away), helping my friend with his X570/3800x and my cousin with his B550/5800X builds (both hated all memory and needed significant tuning to get running at even 3600). They probably are fine but I like thinks mostly just working. Intel has been that for me.

As far as GPUs.....their lower end and mid-range stuff is generally really good price/performance so I buy them a lot. The 3080 was the first GPU I've got from Nvidia since the 1060 3gb I got for my kid. Been on the RX 470 (RMAd to RX 570), RX 580, Vega 64, 5700XT, until now.

The 6600 I got because it was just cheap.

my 5700xt has been crashing more and more, it was rock solid stable for ~2 years? not sure what the deal is :wtc:

I didn't have any memory troubles when I built the 5800X system for my sister. Ran at 3600 no problem.

Trying to get it to not thermal throttle was a bit more difficult though.

We did an Arctic 360 on my cousins, he said it runs no problem with PBO but it was hard to get the Corsair memory to run at 3600

Is there any real reason to buy something other than a 5600X as a 2600X replacement?

Was thinking maybe 5700X just to have some low volume CPU for unique factor, and then thought maybe a 5700G just to save $10 and to have a cpu with an igpu, which might give it some extended life as something like a multimedia PC in 3~4 years when I move on from the current CPU/MOBO


EVERYTHING online pretty much says either 5600X or 5800X3D.. as 5600X is 90-95% of the performance of the 5700 & 5800 while being $50 & $100 cheaper respectively :hsd:

:|

the only other thing that caught my eye is that while the 5700X has a lower clock speed, it has a 4mb L2 cache instead 3mb (besides the extra cores & threads)



EDIT: Have NHU-12S w/ additional fan on it; did that last xmas to get a lil more performance out of the my current setup

i never really had driver issues back when i had AMD GFX cards in the 7000 series days

current AMD CPU comps have been rock solid (5600x and a 5900x)

5800X3D is the best gaming chip right now. If you can get it cheap at Microcenter or something it's worth it. Definitely a HUGE jump from the 2600X. If you do other shit too like production the 5900X is a better buy. 5700X if you're on the cheap. Skip the 5500 and G variants. They have no PCIE3 (well your mobo might not either) and half the L3 cache.

What you do with your PC and what GPU u got
