"The Ryzen 3000 series is here! Besides the initial launch of Ryzen a couple of years ago this might by one of the most hyped launches when it comes to computer hardware. This is likely because AMD is upping core counts, speeds, and this might be where we see the AMD take over as the overall performance leader compared to Intel. We know Intel has the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X coming in September, but right now on launch day the current available flagship is the Ryzen 9 3900X. This is a 12-core, 24-thread part that has a base core clock of 3.6 GHz and will boost all the way up to 4.6 GHz. It also has 70MB of AMD GameCache (we will cover that in a bit). All of this for only $499! Is this processor powerful enough to take out Intel’s Core i9-9900K? Let’s get this processor in a new X570 motherboard and see what it can do!"
