Best cpu for purely gaming which is powerful and future proof

So i am looking for a cpu to pair with my rtx 3080 and i have no idea which i should go for either ryxen or intel and it should be future proof (No need to upgrade for at least 3 yrs)

Thanks

Well, you should be fine with the 5800 or 5900X, but that's if you can even find stock.

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

r7 5800x or the r9 5900x, the 5950x is a little overkill.

but a 5600x is also a viable option depending on your needs.

If you have 3080, you probably run it at high resolution (1440p and up).

In that resolution the difference between cpu performance is very slim.

So a 6 core 3600 or 5600x would be enough for 3 years.

Then you'll want to keep an eye out for the 5600X, if not the 5900X if you really want 12 cores.

And then you just need to pair it with decent RAM. Buildzoid's youtube channel has a lot of that.

GN recently showed that having 4 sticks is better than 2 sticks in general.

 

3600mhz CL16 or something like that should be good, 3200mhz CL14 will be B-die and good for tuning/overclocking
 

 


They also did a super tuned comparison
