Who ever said that it is "useless to upgrade from a 7700k to a 3900x" never read the specs. Not an apples to apples comparison, more cores, more threads, higher clocks. Yea it's a stupid idea...

I went from a 4790k @ 4.4Ghz to a 3700x @ stock. The difference is fantastic! It is most definitely faster and smoother in all games I've used it with. The extra cores/threads also means that more things can be run in the background without impeding performance.

Whoever said that a 7700k -> 3900x wasn't an upgrade for gaming was an idiot. AMD hit it out of the ballpark with Zen2.

I have a 1080ti and a 9700k at 5.15 Ghz. on air (DH-15s). The OP was bragging about the 3900x. These two reviews show the 9700k as clearly superior to the 3900x in games:

If you had both latency issues and stutters, that sounds like you were gaming with mitigations enabled? Modern 4c8t cpus generally don't have noticeable latency issues at 4k60 unless they are unstable.

The Ryzen is an upgrade though. Enjoy all of those good threads.

You have a $90 cooler and a $323 Microcenter deal (dont even count microcenter since not available to me or most) so you have a $425 ish 8 core and are happy cause for NOW you are a little faster than a 12 core 24 thread CPU that will long outlast you ? So my 3700x cost >25% less ($317 vs $425) and is <10% slower in games with 8 core 16 threads.

Glad you are happy with your purchase. Tell me again why you are on the AMD forum ?

Enjoy your purchase.

Don't hijack OP's thread, your 8c/8t won't like too many tasks at once.

There is this saying;

"You win some, but then you lose me, I, I never lose."

To each his own, @J!NX stated his experience going from a Intel 7700K to an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and how happy he was that he made the switch. I ask myself when it comes to gaming, who really still play games at 1080P resolution. For me when I game I want to see great graphics produced by the GPU at a fluent rate and since I changed from an Intel 5930K to an AMD Ryzen 7 1700, after which 2700X then 3600, 3900X and now 3950X I've never looked back.

Nice upgrade. We have two gaming PC's -one is a Ryzen with a 3800x and I often consider picking up a 3900x . More interested in the CCX overclocking side than anything , I think disabling SMT and pushing a good amount of voltage through would yield good results. Would love to compare it to our 9900ks system

Slightly off topic but last year I also upgraded from a 7700k but to a 2700x . That particular upgrade wasn't that great (bit of a sidegrade, or even downgrade in some older titles) but it goes to show how much AMD have advanced in a short amount of time
