    5.0 out of 5 stars Surpisingly good in 2020.
    By M. Lane on February 15, 2020
    I enabled PBO and observed the CPU's behavior in HW monitor with great interest. All 16 cores will boost to 4.4 GHz individually, and all together have boosted to 4.24 GHz. That was not commonly happening when this CPU was first released and reviewed, and I wonder if this one is just better, or if all the more recently built ones are better silicon overall.

    I noticed that under a moderate load, the temps hold at about 51 degrees, and under a heavy boost, temps go into the low 60s before the fans spool up and drive them back into the 50s. That's impressive considering I am using a round AIO cooler that doesn't even cover the entire IHS. Looking at the PBO constraints, I find that the limiting factor thus far is not temperature at all but voltage. This makes me wonder if I can undervolt and obtain the 200MHz offset for 4.6 GHz.

    Not that this really matters, its just a fun and interesting thing to check out. What does matter is that I came from a 1900X, and I am kind of shocked by the difference. Dota2 saw a 22% increase in FPS, and I'm not exactly sure why. Other games it made no difference. I think some games suffered from the first gen TR scheduling, though the 1900X certainly did far better in games than I expected.

    Interacting with gigantic folders of images in windows is completely different with double the cores. 32 threads is more than enough most of the time for me. I checked. Even with my "leave everything up when I take a brake to game" use case, I still found that 4 to 6 of the 32 threads weren't being used. On the other hand, when you do a batch file conversion, its pretty cool that programs use all available resources.

    I'm glad I was able to get one of these before they disappear. I have an enormous amount of storage with the x399 NVME setup and I don't really feel like building a new system yet. This is a nice stopgap, though I wish the 3960X was a 16 core that fit in X399.

    I'm not sure that anyone should get this, except if you currently have a 1900x or 1920x, or if you can find a great deal on all the hardware and absolutely need the I/O. Otherwise X570 with 3950X is the way to go.
