The Asus prime z590-p compatible CPU for gaming computers were in fact enlisted on Custom Build Wizard. The fundamentally outdated AMD FX series processors and the FM2 socket line were already noticeably inferior in performance to Intel, which made a noticeable difference in highly demanding games. Although it is noteworthy that console manufacturers have made their choice just in the direction of AMD hardware.
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X:-
The most powerful processor in the current line of desktop “nines”, which is nice, still retains a semblance of price adequacy, although (which is still unusual by inertia of thinking) it will already cost more than fresh ones from a company that prefers blue. So, what are they offering us for this price “on paper”? The processor is based on the most modern architecture of the “red” – Zen 3, consisting of two eight-core chipsets on the 7nm process technology and a peripheral module, which is still 12nm.
Everything in general is already well known: AMD prefers to “polish” its architecture, rather than rushing from one to another. In total, we have 16 cores, 32 threads, a base frequency of 3.4 GHz with a boost to 4.9 GHz, 8 MB of L2 cache and 64 MB of L3 cache. The processor is equipped with 24 lanes of PCIe 4.0 and has a standard TDP of 105 W – as before, it needs a board with a powerful and well-cooled VRM, and even more so, you should not save on cooling.
AMD Ryzen 9 3950X:-
Continuing our review of the best AMD Ryzen 9 3950X gaming processors. Ryzen 9 3950X became not so long ago the first flagship of the desktop line of “nines” on the Zen 2 architecture: here you have 16 cores, and 7-nanometer technology, and a regular boost up to 4.7 GHz with a base frequency of 3.5 GHz. More precisely, there are three “stones” under the processor cover – two 7-nanometer chipsets directly with computing cores (six in each), and a 12-nanometer cIOD chipset is responsible for their interaction with the outside world.
The declared heat pack for this “sandwich” is 105 W, while the long-term current consumption is limited to 95 amperes, and short-term peaks are allowed up to 140 A: the processor will need a motherboard with a very powerful and well-cooled VRM, because at high loads it will have to pass currents through itself worthy of the welding machine!
If there is still no desire to “get off” from the LGA 1200 socket (after all, this socket is only a little over a year old!), Then the Intel i9-11900K processor will be the best option for “removing all the foam” from Rocket Lake. Still 14nm, 8 cores for 16 threads, boost to 5.3GHz at base frequency 3, 5 GHz is, in general, a typical “Intel” eight-core processor, which we had already gotten used to before the release of Adler Lake.
The processor is no less habitual for top-end Intel is gluttonous – with a passport TDP of 125 W in a full multi-threaded load, it is able to consume all 250 W. This is already a level when high-performance “dropsy” for cooling and top-end motherboards is needed.
Mini PCs often come at a more affordable price point compared to larger desktop computers while still offering similar features and capabilities. This makes them an attractive option for budget-conscious consumers who don’t want to compromise on performance or functionality.
