    So we finally have some third party reviews of the two most powerful mainstream CPUs from AMD. I wanted to share some benchs in gaming (in synthetic multicore benchmarks AMD wipes the floor with Intel):

    The 10900K has more room to overclock probably, and even stock vs stock it seems to be doing pretty well even tough it has 2 and 6 less cores than the 5950X and the 5900X respectively. What you guys think?

    I'd love to see some flight sim 2020 results. I'm glad I sold my 3900x now too, lol.

    From the benchmarking results from the TechTubers 12hrs ago** it seems 5950X is the better of the bunch, however to be fair, 5900X results seems to be just a little shy when compared to 10900K. 5900X wins for being better value, but not "overwhelming performance" considering 5900X packs more core counts than the BlueChip.

    **From Gamer Nexus, LTT, and HardwareUnboxed. Coincidentally, the 3 seems to upload their videos at the same time when i turn on my TV last night to see all 3 videos showing same uploading time stamp.

    lol, probably for NDA they all three had to wait until a certain day time. I also watched the GN review. I think is a huge jump in gaming for AMD which used to be pretty much not a competitor for Intel at gaming. But being realistic AMD is just catching Intel in gaming, which of course is great. The 5950X should be a bit cheaper IMO though. The 10900K is being sold on eBay for $550-600. The 5950X should be no more than $700

    The 10900K is easy to overclock and performs well. AMD really sucks at CPU and memory overclocking. If you're not into overclocking and generally just leave everything stock, the AMD CPU is probably the way to go if you don't mind spending more. If you enjoy overclocking, the AMD CPU is going to be about as exhilarating as watching paint dry.

    Wrong - $579.99 versus $549.99 for the 5900X.

    I stand corrected. Thank you. Everything else is accurate.
