for a purely "Gaming Only" build, no production at all im only gonna game on this build, should i go 3900X or 3700X/3800X?
let me be clear money is not an issue and i already own an RTX 2080 Ti lightning Z so i wanna match it with the absolute best cpu for gaming (and no thanks i dont want a 9900K)
watching and reading review seems 3700x and 3900x gaming performance is almost a match most of the time, BUT Linus have said that there was some performance inconsistencies between different runs with the 3900x as the scheduler do not always allocate tasks perfectly or the same between the 2 chiplets and proved that performance was more consistent and improved when affinity was set manually to a single chiplet.
also even when sometimes 3900x bested 3700x Average FPS it was only by a tiny margin, and then more often than not 3700x bested 3900x when it comes to Minimum FPS which matters more imho, cz of scheduler like Linus said? maybe, less latency cz 1 chiplet? also maybe, dont know but that was the general perception i saw after watching and reading all the reviews here and there ...
so im gonna go grab myself one Ryzen 3000 this weekend
my mind is almost set on getting 3800X/3700X whatever i find in stock (leaning more toward a 3800X tbh), i think the 8-core single-chiplet is gonna run cooler, consume less power, and might potentially run games better than a 3900X.
