Hello ! 

 

First post here ! I looked a bit on the forum about the CPU Ryzen 9 3900XT and some people are saying that they are bad, not worth the price,... But never really saying why ! 

As I am looking to buy one for my new build I was wondering if somebody could clear that a bit for me. Because at first look, they look nice.

( I am doing a lot of 3D modeling but it's for real time use not rendering. For video games basically )

 

Thank you !

They are ~6% more expensive for a less than ~6% gain in performance.

 

Ultimately, whether or not that is worth it is up to you.

 

Personally, if I were in the market for a 3900X(T) (and for some reason couldn't wait for the 5900X), I would go for the 3900XT.

Thank you for the answer ! 

 

I can wait for the 5900X, I knew they were releasing new CG but didn't knew for CPU. So I could wait to see the 5900X release which is gonna be on November 9th if I'm not wrong.

I would wait for the 5000 series even if you don't get it the price of 3000 series should drop after release so it could save you few $

Ryzen 3900XT is EXACTLY the same as the 3900X, but with +0.1GHz.

The silicon fabrication process for Ryzen has matured a bit since release, so the CPU may also use a little less voltage / power to achieve the same frequency, etc.

 

Ryzen 3900X has been on sale for as low as $390, but average is $420.

Ryzen 3900 XT are going for ~$470 right now.

$50 more (or even $80) more for an extra.... +0.1 GHz? and maybe 0.1V ~ 0.2V less on the CPU Core Voltage?

Not really worth it.

 

And we are just counting down the DAYS for Ryzen 5000 series, too ...

true for the 3900xt it is a bit expensive, here the 3800xt is about 30 ish more than the 3700x and 11 more than the 3800x which isnt so bad if you want the best and want to keep your cpu till am5 and ddr5 later will become more cheaper. also the 3600xt is 20 bucks more than the regular 3600 so also not a bad deal.

Thank you ! 

 

same performance in most cases and these cases would be.. yours. in gaming its either same. or okay or pretty decent dependent on which game and resolution. 
so in your case it would be better to go for the 5900x like others suggested. unlike the 5800x the 5900x is actually good priced at only 50 more instead of 120 more for an 8 core ;) so good value!
