Hardware / Re: Ryzen 9 3950X build
« on: 2019-12-16, 08:10:29 »
Hey does anyone know how I can get my hands on a 3950x? I live in the USA?

 Check your local shops and you might be extremely lucky to find one. Other than that eBay is the only place you'll find them right now and they have a large mark up from the MSRP.

Looks great.
Are you running a high end card .
I am in between rendering in corona for an interior of a house or learning Unreal, and outputting very quickly, but the run up to the rendering will be amssive time .

Am I running a 2080ti. Epic has made some impressive progress on their raytracing. When I first got my 2080ti a few months back enabling GI raytracing tanked the card to a few fps on default settings. But now with the newest build I can crank up the sun, skylight and GI settings and still have around 10fps with massively better quality compared to previously.

Nice VRM test for all TRX40 boards
feature=emb_logo

TL-DR: All boards are good. MSI being the best with heatsink design that doesn't need any 30mm tiny fans, but the other flagships stayed pretty silent.
That Msi board makes you wonder why the x570s have the fans. Will you be building a 3rd gen TR Juraj, possibly waiting for the 3990x?

Decided to play with Ue4 a little bit this morning as I saw that the new preview build added some better optimizations for raytracing. This is a scene I'm slowly working on and the light settings are barely above the defaults. This is full raytracing and no light baking was done. Just a straight import from 3ds Max.

Check out the attached screenshot for a higher quality Lighting sample test.

Can't even find that on their shitty website. Link would have been more useful than screenshot.

Its the first build you see on the daily deal. the 3960x is a decent deal but the 3970x they only have it as +$300 which makes it a great deal. Your buying the CPU and getting everything else free!

5% Coupon Code "CPFB5"

Only ships to US and Canada but thats a crazy price, says it wont be assembled till Dec 26th or after.

The best savings I can seem to come up with is 3970x, ASRock TRX40 TAICHI, Rx 580, 512gb m2 and dropping Case to lowest one/PSU to lowest one/RAM to lowest one/2nd Hard drive/Windows 10/Keyboard/Mouse. This puts the build up to around $2000 after taxes. You can use the Taichi and sell the Case/PSU/Cooler/GPU/RAM around $300-400 worth of parts roughly.

Stumbled across this over on reddit but Cyberpower is selling 3rd gen Threadripper at a pretty low price. With mostly identical parts the build to do it yourself is $1000 more, not to mention you can't really find any place that has them in stock.

Interesting enough if you drop all the stuff down to the to basic and apply a 5% code they have it comes out to $1961 after shipping and taxes. For a 3970x with a Mobo. Your sort of getting a motherboard for free.

3950X/Asus Strix-E, Noctua NH-D15, Fractal Define C, 4x Noctua a12x25(PWM) for airflow [..]

Would be interesting to know your temps. I'm planning for 3900X, Noctua D15 or Dark Rock Pro and Meshify C. Ideally i'd prefer Define C for better acoustics, but i'm not sure how much difference that would make.

I have a NH-14S on my 2950x in a Define R6 case and it temps aren't terrible. With a test rendering going right now its sitting at 63C and thats with a slight 300Mhz overclock as well. One thing I've noticed about the Define R6 case is that it does a great job at NOT collecting dust. I live next to 3 big farm fields and all my prior cases would be covered in dust especially around the fans. I haven't put air to my case now in over a month and there is next to no dust in it.

(Funny enough, she loves sleeping next to render farm or Veronika's workstation instead)

(Did I mention I pre-ordered ,twice lol, the fake Apple case from https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/dune-pro-pc-case/x/22706094#/comments ? I would have built this PC in that but it will arrive...IF...it will, in January, and I wanted our modeler to have this build asap)

Also have a dog that loves laying under my desk to get the heat from the computer.

I like the cheese grader case but if i'm not mistake the fake one does remove the panels from over the top like the mac pro does.

Just sharing my latest benchmark finding. Can't wait to see 3990x/wx there. Scary stuff.
Btw 3970x is currently just a little bit more expensive than 2990wx and it's still super fresh.

From the handful of benchmarks i've seen with tech reviews even the 3960x is benching higher than the 2990wx. I don't know the technical side of things but the gains in Vray/Blender/Cinebench are much larger from 3rd gen Threeadripper than what they are for Corona. Could it be that the benchmark is still running on version 1.3?

anyone has any idea when 3960x will be on US amazon?

Amazon seems to be slow on zen 2 release and even when they finally do come up they sell out so fast. By the time I got the newegg notification they were available, they were already sold out for all 3 cpus that came out.

The 3970x is 200mhz slower on boost clock but 200mhz faster on base clock. In terms of single core the benchmarks I've been seeing the threadrippers are pretty close to the 3950x in gaming.

In terms of multithread apps the 3970x seems to be a good step up from the 3960x (which is benching better than the 2990wx)

If you can afford the 3970x I'd go in on that. It's single thread is just shy of the 3950x but it's mutlticore is really unmatched. The amount time you'll save in mutlticore apps makes it more than worth it in my opinion.

As others mentioned the cpu to rule them all is a 64 core 3990x beast supposed to come out early next year.

2 new threadrippers come out later today and a tech reviewer post benchmarks of the new Intel 10980xe... But at the top of the charts are the likely blurred out bars of the new threadrippers which wreck everything.
The 3960x will probably cost around the same price as the 2990wx. Cheaper in cpu price but more expensive on motherboard side.

But yeah if those blurred bars on the 2 new threadrippers coming today. I'd return that computer you just got if you can.

Little update from my end. I've decided to stop for a moment and wait for ryzen 9 3950X to come and hopefully any news about new threadrippers (I crave for info about them, big time) Worst case scenario I'll end up with 3950X + 64 gigs of ram, best case scenario I'll buy new 32/64 TR. Buying 2990WX is also an option but still big question mark here........this is killing me.

Once the 3900x came out the prices for the 1920x/2920x really took a hit. Maybe when the 3950x comes out it will drop the 1950x/2950x, maybe even the 29xxwx's. The 1950x has gone on sale for really cheap lately. Microcenter had the 2970wx on sale for $700 at one point.

But yeah at this point waiting to see what comes next month is probably the best thing to do, otherwise you will most likely have buyers remorse.

Something about the columns seem off and I don't really like them in the shot but they do sort of draw focus to the center. However this has to be one of the coolest product scenes I've ever seen! Very original and well done. The green paint draws your eyes right to where your suppose to be looking!

I've seen over on the AMD Reddit page some people ordering Ryzen CPU or Radeon Cards and in the box ends up being older parts 5+ years.

As for building a PC, at this point unless you absolutely need a computer right now. Its probably just better wait till next month. The 3950x will be out and we will get a better sample size of benchmarks and hopefully we will see some info on Threadripper 3000.

Hopefully this means we will start seeing some more info leak out about Threadripper 3000 and get some info when they will actually release.
