Maximum performance and efficiency in games and applications can only be achieved with this processor

Maximum performance and efficiency in games and applications can only be achieved with this processor

With the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, AMD has achieved something rare: a CPU that’s ahead of the benchmarks, for both games and applications, and still content itself with relatively low power requirements. Normally, a high-end processor also needs a lot of power, but that’s not the case with AMD’s fastest CPU. The reason for this is the particularly large L3 cache, because the chip can access an additional 64 MiByte 3D V cache. Due to the large cache, data needs to be requested from working memory less frequently, which means that more performance can be achieved. Even with a low base hour. Although the 7800X3D and 7900X3D also offer a particularly generous L3 cache, these models can’t quite compete with the 7950X3D: since these CPUs only offer eight and twelve cores, the 7950X3D with 16 cores keeps it in check. clearly in applications.

The higher end model AM5 is also a narrow winner in gaming, but that’s less because of the extra cores but because of the higher clock rate (7950X3D: max 5.7GHz, 7900X3D: max 5.6GHz, 7800X3D: max .5, 0GHz) and build The best in detail. On Ryzen 7000 CPUs, the cores are always arranged in a component called Core Complex (CCX). CCX has a maximum of 8 cores. The 64 MiByte 3D V-Cache included with X3D models always belongs to CCX. With the 7800X3D it’s still easy: CCX with 8 cores and 64 MiByte 3D V-Cache is installed here. On the other hand, the 7900X3D and 7950X3D use two CCX’s, but only one with an additional L3 cache. With the 7950X3D, 8 cores (as with the 7800X3D) can access the 3D V-Cache and another 8 cores have to do without the extra cache. The operating system ensures that the cores in CCX with 3D V-Cache are mainly used for games. Applications can take advantage of CCX’s higher core clock speeds without the 3D V-Cache, and are therefore often preferred to run in CCX without additional memory. However, with the 7900X3D, each CCX only has six cores – so there are only six cores that benefit from 3D V-Cache. From a gamer’s point of view, AMD offers quite a bit of performance with the CPU (which is still compelling).

This means that the AMD Ryzen 7950X3D processor offers the best combination of high gaming performance, speed in applications, and performance-per-watt currently available in a desktop CPU. That’s why we use this processor in two different PCGH Advisor computers. If you want to buy a gaming PC or just want to get some inspiration for your own configuration, we will introduce two configurations with AM5 socket high-end CPU below.

PCGH Advisor PCs: Gaming PCs for every budget and configurable

When you buy a gaming PC, you should always be in control. Therefore, all PCGH Advisor devices can be extensively configured in Dubaro’s PC Configuration Tool before ordering. This means that in most cases you can install the components you want if some features are particularly important to you.

PCGH Advisory PC 3200 Edition: 7950X3D meets RTX 4080

This is the cheapest PCGH Advisory PC, which we default stock an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D. For cooling in this configuration we rely on Be quiet! DarkRock Pro 4, a powerful dual tower cooler with two Silent Wings fans known for their quietness. The Asrock X670E Pro RS is used on the mainboard, which, unlike traditional X670 motherboards, already supports PCI Express 5.0 and is therefore also ideally positioned for future graphics cards. While we’re on the subject: the speedy Geforce RTX 4080 takes care of the image computation and output. The card with 16GB graphic memory supports all current Nvidia technologies such as AI DLSS 3 upgrade process. RAM 32GB DDR5 -5600 Kingston Fury Beast, 2TB Kingston NV2 is used for data storage. Be calm! Straight Power 11 is 850 watts. As a case, the NZTX H9 Flow with a glass window offers several ventilation options and at the same time a great look into the inner workings of a gaming PC. As a bonus, the computer comes with free PCGH thermal paste and a coupon for a special PCGH booklet. When you purchase this PC configuration, you currently receive a discount of 100 euros.

PCGH Guide PC 4300 Edition: The Best CPU and GPU

With its exceptional speed and energy efficiency, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D is at the heart of this cutting-edge system. In order to ensure optimal temperature control even under high loads, we’ve integrated the Corsair H150i RGB Elite water cooling system. For the best possible picture quality, we decided on the Geforce RTX 4090, which, as currently the fastest gaming graphics card with a generously proportionate 24 GiByte of graphic memory, not only performs excellently today, but is also futuristic. For RAM we chose 64GB DDR5-6000, which is already an advantage and will show its full potential especially in future games – an ideal choice if your PC will be used for more than just gaming. For data storage, we chose a combination of 2 TB Samsung 980 Pro SSD and 1 TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus SSD to ensure futuristic solutions in this area as well. The Asrock X670E Pro RS provides the optimal I/O hub for AMD CPUs. High Efficiency Be Quiet! The Straight Power 11 Platinum 1000W and NZXT H9 Flow with Glass Window ensure good upgrade options as well as style. This bundle also includes the PCGH Carbonite Ultra Thermal Compound and a special edition coupon at no additional cost. You can currently buy this high-end system for €400 cheaper.
