I9-9900 vs Ryzen 9-3900

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I’m planning to get the Ryzen 9, which one of those cpu you guys suggest? Anyone knows when the Ryzen will go back to stock?

First of all: What are you playing to do with that system?

General answer_ 9900 is a little bit faster in games, BUT you won't notice it. Ryzen blows it out of the water in everything else + supports more modern tech -> R9

BUT as I said: We first need to know your use case to make a good recommendation. For gaming alone a R7 is nice and a R5 fine. That way spend more on the GPU = better gaming experience :)

The Ryzen 9 3900X would last longer due to it's additional threads and is not too behind now in gaming. Plus being way better in productivity.

 

 

Ryzen 9 3900X.

For games I think it depends on what monitor you are running.

 

For 1440p 144hz and 1080p 240hz I think the i9 9900k would be best.

For the resolutions I game at(4k, 3840 X 1600) it doesn't matter since I am always GPU bound. 

 

Being out of stock is a good thing because by the time it is in stock most of the bios bugs will be worked out and you will have a better chance of a trouble free experience.

 

For productivity it does not matter to me. I did 3D for a living along with video editing and large format printing and most of it was done with 4 cores or less. I have already calculated that having more than 4 cores would not change my workflow since I would still need 2 or more computer to do it.

So for me picking up two R7 2700xs make more business sense than getting one i9 9900k or R9 3900k

But even for 1080p etc etc you won't notice the difference

I have only tested with i7 8700k, i7 8086ks and an i9 9900k with GTX 1080 tis in SLI and RTX 2080 tis.

The stock i7 8700k had no chance against the 5hz CPUs at that resolution and the i9 9900k had no advantage over the i7 8086k. 

Since the cores did not matter and frequency did, I did not upgrade to the i9 9900k.

 

I would love to get a 3900x to test but right now I have no use for a 3rd computer. Maybe the difference in architecture would lessen the impact of frequency. 

The evidence so far is that the i9 9900k is still faster and me being anal, I would notice it.

3900x is pretty sweet but as someone said above you may be waiting to get one (and get on a list if you want one).  I have been on all the auto notifications (even though I am not actually getting one now) and haven't heard anything at all from amazon, newegg, B/H.  The only ones "available" have been third party, and extremely expensive.  

 

Once they release a bunch more should be in a better position
