Out of the Blue

I joked about it yesterday, but this does seem to be more PC gaming news than the usual E3. I wonder if that has to do with being near the end of the current console cycle? Whatever the cause, I'm happy about it. The occasions when the show is mostly console games can be a little depressing. It's also funny how much of the news from the show has rolled out already since it still hasn't actually begun. E3 2019 officially kicks off today at 2:00 pm EDT. Enjoy.

Why the 3700x and not the 3800x, inquiring minds and all that.

40 extra TDP on the 3800X for a meager 300Mhz gain on the base frequency and 100Mhz on the max boost.

I'd prefer to run my machine as cool and quiet as possible, thus the 3700X.

Edit:

I've always run Crucial or Corsair memory as those are brands I know and trust. How does G.SKILL compare?

Yeah I pointed this out in another thread. The 3800X seems like poor value (relative to other offerings) given the very modest increases for the price differential but it'll all depend on benchmarks/etc. I also don't really see anyone needing the 3900X 12c/24t SKU for gaming any time soon so I'm going to be sticking with the 8c/16t SKUs.

Either way though more choice is a good problem to have. Frankly at the resolutions I game at leave me more GPU bottlenecked than anything else but I just like to upgrade once in awhile
