So I can buy a 9900 non K for 220 bucks. I actually would prefer AMD but I need strong single core performance for 3D vision games. What should I do?

Either way you are buying a motherboard, so go with a 10600K for $279 on Newegg and overclock it to 5ghz. The 9900 non-k will only boost to 5.0 on 2 cores and only if it wants to.

But thats only 6 cores. I've been on 4 cores for 11 years now. Was hoping for at least more than 6 lol. how high can a 9900 boost to?

id wait if you can handle another few months and see what ryzen 4k does i honestly think they gonna be dang close to intel in single core if not beating them If amd starts to catch up on clocks then intels in trouble.

But isn't the news that 4k series are being delayed into next year? Besides, what Ryzen processor will I be able to get for 220 to 240 bucks that will compare in performance?

I did see a 10700k on newegg for 409. Even then I am still thinking how this deal is too good to pass up?

not 100% either way buy AMD did come out and say they aren't being delayed.

What is this supposed to help me with lol?
well hes telling you what it will run you wont be able to overclock it much without having the unlocked muti.

Heres a compare of a 3700x to a 9900 about the perf you might see.

Doesn't the 9900 turbo up to 4.6Ghz though? Thats what I'm seing all over the place

5ghz on single core but im not sure what it does on muti cores honestly it was hard to find many with a 9900 on benchmarks.

The 9900 only boosts to 5.0 on 2 cores when thermals are good. How long it boosts at 5.0 depends on your cooling. Nobody on this forum can share their experience on the 9900 because this is an overclocking forum. If you want single core performance then I assume its for gaming, in which case a 10600k will be equivalent to a 10700k unless you are gaming at extremely high refresh rates or very high refresh rates with RTX on.

So in all honesty the 9900 might not be any faster then a 3600x or 3700x cpu might even be slower even on single core something else like a 3600/3700x or a 10600k/10700k would be better options seems like.

Ryzen 3700x has higher ipc at 4ghz it is about the same as a 9900 at 4.6.

That cannot be true lol. No way. I have been out of the game for a while but everything everybody tells me is that Intel CPUs have stronger single thread performance. You saying a 3700x is fasster than 4.6 for game just simply makes no sense. I'm gonna need graphs

You guys are making this 9900 seem like a horrible processor. Isn't this just the non unlocked version of its 9900k brother which was the gaming king till 9900k?

I wasnt looking at AMD because people on the 3D Vision forums made it clear to me that AMD CPUs won't run as well as Intel for 3D vision games where we have bugs where only 3 cores can be used and there's some speed downgrades. Because of this I am looking for strong gaming performance. I do game at 4K or 4K 3D.

4k your cpu is not gonna matter very much lower res is were higher clocks come into play more, ryzens have made huge strides there ipc is faster then intels clock for clock only reason intel is faster is the clock speed

if you look at that both cpus are locked to 4ghz the intel is losing in single and muti threaded.

heres a good benchmark that shows all the res
