2700x to 3900x worh the upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
please I need help, should I upgrade from a 2700x? right now I am putting it under heavy workloads, a lot of 3d work. Even rendering. Some renders take over 30 hours.
the thing is that everything right now is really expensive since my currency suffered a 20% hit with this crisis, but I am thinking this might go up or down idk.
the upgrade in total would cost around 640 american dollars with 32gb 3600mhz ddr4 memory.
Keep in mind I have a high concentration of this type of workload and having it today may prove very useful.
 
System specs
Ryzen 2700x
gskill 3200mhz ram
motherboard asus x470-f
EVGA GTX STILL MIGHTY 1080 TI

If you do work, then yes. It is a big perf uplift.

 

But don't buy new ram unless you are trying to make both systems function. 3200 is fine.

For professional 3D modelling, the 3900X pay itself off.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

I just switched to the 3900X from a 2700X.  Anything you'd like to know? 

 

And I might be able to run some benches for you if they're free to download.  Don't have the 2700X in a system to directly compare though.

Yes, you should upgrade.  Budget depending, get a 3950, or 3900. Both will dramatically increase your performance.  Going from a 2700x to a 3700x or 3800x will get an increase because the Zen 2 architecture is much more efficient, but I don't think it'll get you THAT much.  For instance, I upgraded from a 1700x to a 3700x, and I know what you're doing is much more in depth than this, but my Cinebench R15 score with my OC'd 1700x was around 1750, and that wasn't a very stable OC honestly.  So at a stable OC, I think it was closer to 1700.  My 3700x gets around 2200.  That's like a 25% increase, so nothing to scoff at, but I think once it gets into the heavy rendering world that you're in, you might want the extra cores of the 3900 or 3950 to really push you along.
