What should have been a 5900X/6800XT system

My AMD System as for 2 years now, I wanted to upgrade to 5900X with 6800XT so the CPU can go to my little nephew who now has my X370/1700/RX580 system. Unfortunately still waiting for the AMD parts to get available. My system is also visible at: Team Red Window van wim-bart - Hardware Info and CPU-Z validation: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X @ 4141.6 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR (x86.fr)

Really great setup and build.
I cannot get any CPU or GPU I want for my next builds.

Re: What should have been a 5900X/6800XT system

I wanted to make my nephew happy and upgrade his 1700/RX580 to 3900X/RX5700 but now he has to wait, he is using my old 1700/RX580 and that system will be my ESX Intel Replacement. But now waiting patien until I can buy the 5900X/6800XT combo.

Re: What should have been a 5900X/6800XT system

RX580 were OK in their time, but I think they are really only for 1080p gaming today. 

I have a couple of RX590's I was testing on GTAV at 2K very high settings and 2K 0.9 downscale by 0.9 + RIS on. 
Just not good enough to maintain 60 FPS  with the settings I tested.

I am sure your nephew can survive playing at 1080p for now.

Good luck getting the parts you need.

And I have my upgrade of the CPU for a reasonable price. And it is a R9 5750X instead of an R9 5900X. Availability is better at the shops here in the Netherlands and close to AMD advised prices.

Re: What should have been a 5900X/6800XT system

5900X is totally not available and I even wonder if they are made at all in normal batches. I did buy myself a 5950X because I just could not wait and with the upcoming announcement of cancelation Zen 3+ (6xxxx CPU) and the 82% TSMC wafer reservations for PS5/XBX production (AMD Chips) in mind, I managed to score a 5950X for €849 where the AMD site offers it for €824. So the descission to go for 5950 instead of 5900 makes sense for now. Next one will be Zen 5 with AM5, skipping Zen 4/4+.

 

The best is just to step in on 5600X, 5800X or 5950X. And eventually the hopefully upcoming 5300X, although naming it 5400X would be nicer 🙂🙂

And my initial choice of 5900X was not a financial one but wanted to maintain my core count. So 3900X -> 5900X was the plan, and I expect 5900X to be limited available for long time, and have seen waiting queues over 300 people at some stores.
