Cool, let me point somethings out though.
1. The amazon link for 3900x is a bad idea because its impossible to get except through scalpers which is all you see when you click it.
2. Why recommend a 500$ 12core/24t cpu for gaming when an 8 or 6 core of same gen is really just as good or very close. (why not recommend top of the line threadripper too?)
3. How much information is sent back to AMD if any, How is it making recommendations? Does it store data locally or is it reporting back somewhere and parsing to make recommendations?
4. What's next a animated paperclip avatar to tell you you should upgrade(automatic ads or links) so you don't have to fumble through UI to find recommendations....(give an inch they take a mile)
I mean didn't Microsoft get a lot of flack for tactics like this?(onedrive adverts in file explorer) I have a feeling if more people check this on their system its recommending top end stuff(AMD brand). No middle ground stuff here. I mean what if i only played DOTA do i need 12cores and 16 threads for that too????
I realize this might not be a big deal for tech enthusiasts since we keep up with hardware. However if you read what they say this is for "timmy the gamer".

9900k vs 3900x for gaming, is not an upgrade not even a side grade really .... obviously VII is better than 5700xt. So yeah this looks more like a in driver advert to me. The idea of a game requirement checked is cool, but this is not doing just that.
