You more than qualify as a Adept I. you are 4 ranks above Novice III.

A 3900XT would be great to help me video editing the video I would also make with this CPU, for my super small micro Youtube channel  😁


No matter who wins, the CPU will find a home sweet socket. 😉

Hahahaha indeed,

When I posted it though, I was just below Novice III. I wasn't sure what the level system was like back then, but glad I am in the running now 🙂

Thanks for having this contest, my favorite product is the CPU, I'm currently using a Ryzen 7 3800X.  Currently my game that I'm playing is Destiny 2,  having this forum is great way to bring like minded people together in spot.  Thanks.

Hi AMD, hope all is well 🙂

Adept I

Anything!  😉

Journeyman III

Good luck to all

I'm just getting ready to build a second PC and a free CPU would certainly influence my choice of platform!

I am thankful for AMD's technology made life more e z er, dinner, etc etc. I hope I win so I can replace my Gen2 AMD. Bless me n make my new year a year to remember. Happy new year. 

Journeyman III

Hello. Me win please. Terraria FTW

Adept II

I won't have the forum standing to get in this sweepstakes, sadly, but can hopefully get in entered in the next one. I will say that I have used a ryzen 3900x and upgraded to the 5900x and loved both. I will likely get the 3d version when it drops. I've used amd cpus since the athalon K6-III-P, btw. As for games, I like 'superpeople' and can't wait for it to fully develop. Others include bf 2042, day z, fortnite, apex.



Journeyman III

Need this so bad to build my son an upgraded computer 

Adept I

WOOT! Hi everyone!

Adept I

Still playing Skyrim, now in Anniversary Edition.

Journeyman III

Hi Amd, I can't really say what my favorite AMD product cause all of the ones released lately have seemed rather solid.  🙂

Adept I


I've been gaming on AMD based systems my entire life.  I have been playing a very limited set of games until I can replace my RX 480 since it's on its last legs.  

Adept II

Just want to say I hope everyone has a great 2022 and things get back to a more normal spot soon.

Journeyman III

Cool, I could use a CPU upgrade I am still using 1800X.

Hi, while I'm not novice 3 at the time of this posting, I hope to be novice 3 when the sweepstakes ends! I enjoy playing valorant

Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts

Hi I like the games Thank You

Journeyman III

Just installed TrueNAS on a Socket F Dual AMD Opteron server board and have been pleasantly surprised with the stability and ease of use.  Also playing Cyberpunk 2077 on my Ryzen Threadripper 1900X system!

Journeyman III

this 3900xt would pair well with my radeon x550 xt 🙂

Does anyone have a link to the ranks on this board? I can't seem to find them. Of do you know if Novice is higher than Journeyman or Adept?

Journeyman III

So first bought a Ryzen 7 2700x in 2018 and I totally love it! so I sold it, later on, to buy a Ryzen 5 5600x  for gaming and casual work.  I also paired my first CPU with a RX 590 which I also sold later on to get the brand new RX 5700XT . 

Is 2022 right now and Im very happy so far with my build.

After leaving Team Red for awhile after AthlonXP and then Athlon64 x2 days .. I traded off my 7700k and whatever motherboard I had .. straight across for a Ryzen 7 1700 and ASUS B350 Prime Plus ... and haven't looked back

My wife, daughter and myself all run 5000 series CPU's and ASRock 500 series chipsets motherboard .. and all AMD GPU's (RX 550 2GB, RX 580 4GB, 6700XT)

Even my server is a 3700x on an ASRock Rack X470D4U

All in .. all AMD

Heyyyyy! it would be pretty cool to win this

Adept II

Favorite product is the GPUs. Affordable and powerful.

Still rocking my RX 480 that still get the job done.

Need to raise my forum rank and working on it.

Adept I

Currently playing Deathloop, its okay,  Just finished Resident evil Village, and that was amazeballs.

good luck everyone.

Hello there.

I mean, there's a slight chance and I'm not losing anything, so participating might be of use.

I'm playing Valheim at the moment and my current rig surprisingly holds up pretty ok even for modern games, although I'm surely in a rising need of an upgrade. Starting with a brand new CPU would be awesome 🙃.

OS: Windows 10 (20H2), Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43, CPU: AMD FX-8300 (4 GHz OC'ed), GPU: PowerColor RX 580 (1215MHz, 4096Mb, 7800MHz, 256 bit), RAM: 2xKingston KVR16N11 8Gb DDR3 1600MHz, PSU: [generic] 600W.

Good luck all! Thanks to AMD for offering these sweepstakes and the hardware to enhance our gaming experience. Currently playing Halo Infinite and it's silky smooth 🙌

New rig for 2022

Hi! I’ve been playing a bunch of Smite lately. I've been active in that community for 7 years for the good and the bad moments. The meta is real wack right now but it has always been like that. I wish everybody the best of luck on the giveaway!

Journeyman III

Playing some new world and glad my GPU doesnt catch fire like the other guys lol

Adept I

Only in my dreams would I get a new processor
