X299 Gaming / Editing Build Suggestions

TrinityHigh
 Share

Hey all!

 

I am looking into building another computer but this time on the X299 platform. I will be using this as a gaming rig but also as an editing rig. I am not set on a budget but I want to find a good balance between the two. Any build suggestions? 

 

Thanks!

If you want to do editing/gaming, wait for next gen high end Ryzen. You'll have a much better gaming experience that way, and very good video editing experience at that.

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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

In something like a couple weeks, they're being announced at CES this month and should be available soon after.

CES is next week. We'll know more then. If, for no other reason, than the entire Tech Press will be drinking together, so they'll share all of the information.

If were were going for a X299 system, you'd want the 12c or 14c parts. Best balance of Single-Core and Multi-core performance. You'd also need to overclock the Uncore. The latency in the Mesh is what causes issues in games.

I'm wondering now, if Intel will be releasing a "X399" (new gen X299) In the spring / summer? If so, I think I can just wait until then..

Cascade Lake-X. Some of the parts are "out", though availability is limited for a few more months. They're 100-200 Mhz faster due to having soldered dies.

If the rumors are true, you can get a regular AM4 Ryzen 9 chip with 16 cores with 4.7ghz boost for $450! That is Threadripper's playground.

A price tracker site in russia already listed the new "Matisse" cpu.

I would say that May/June is a more likely release date, as Computex is on at the end of May. We might get some info at CES but I doubt it will release then. Hopefully I am wrong but just being realistic. Looking at previous release dates Ryzen 1xxx was Mar 2017, and Ryzen 2xxx was Apr 2018 so May seems more likely if they stick to a 12 month or so gap.

Winter is Coming.

It might launch in March, we don't know. First set of ES showed up about 2 weeks ago, so motherboard manufacturers are in final qualification mode. May & Computex should bring an Anniversary Edition, of some form.
