With the new ryzen series coming out an Intel 10th gen desktop chips pushing 10 cores of their own. Is there really any benefit to running an X series chip anymore?

 

I feel like with the increased clock speed and cork out that ryzen offers the x-series platform feels dead. No one throws them up for any kind of comparison on benchmarks. I mean one was information if it's worth upgrading or not or just building AMD?

Are you talking about your current setup, in your signature? The extreme series i9 platform on X299?

 

No, those have basically been made obsolete. Hypothetically, you could get an i9-10980XE for $1000 (if it was ever in stock), but it is outperformed in every way by the Ryzen 9 3950X at $750, despite the lack of two whole cores. When AMD pushed out their ryzen 9 series, it was a downright massacre in the professional/HEDT space.


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

I personally wanted to build a HEDT system for fun and also "futureproofing" if you still believe in that. I built my system in February of 2019 and at first, it was a tossup between the entry level of Threadripper TR4 platform like the 2nd gen or Intel's X299 platform. I went for Intel's platform mainly because of the single core performance over Threadripper and costs as Threadripper would have been more expensive than Intel's X-Series. I know it sounds crazy to spends this much money for HEDT when I only play games, I just want the performance. I feel at a loss somewhat but then I know I have a system that blows my old system out of the water. I had a rough time finding a CPU for my system when I purchased all the rest of the parts and did NOT want to shorten my window for returns. No internet website was selling my CPU at its MSRP or were out of stock. Found one at my Micro Center in PA. Made it back in time to go to work in the afternoon on a Sunday. 

 

Many reviewers that I watch on YouTube don't even mention any HEDT systems in their benchmarks anymore and also their prices are different when compared to your consumer chips.

Where I very much like the x299 platform and my processor has been very good to me I'm curious to what the actual benefits are at this point when the 10900 offers 10 cores at 5ghz. I realize 2066 allows you up to I think an 18 core CPU but what other benefits does it really have to offer?    Is there actually a list of benefits I know that all of my PCI slots are a full 16x and that I have quad-channel ddr4. But those really don't seem to be all that important now that gpus offer way more than sli ever did
