Recently built a new rig sporting the following specs:
Proccesor: Ryzen 3950x
Motherboard: X570 AORUS ULTRA
Storage: 2TB Nvme (Aorus w Heatsink) & 2TB SATA (SS)
RAM: Corsair DDR4 3200mhz 32GB
Cooler: Corsair Hyrdo 115i
GPU: GTX 1060
I thought it would be a good idea to share my experience with my new build, especially as I’m using the much hyped CPU which is the 3950x. I’ve always been a user of Intel’s chips and was contemplating getting the i9 9900k for quite some time but after hours of research and speaking to other geek heads, I went with the Ryzen CPU, and I have to say that I’m more than impressed with it, it lives up to the hype with stunning performance when it comes to producing/composing. Now, I can’t really compare my experience to say, a high end intel CPUs because my last rig was a 4th gen intel cpu so I’ve had quite the leap here. This is just for other users considering an AMD Ryzen CPU.
I’m running large projects at a buffer size of 16 with plenty of room to spare as a pose to 2048 on my last rig with large audio drop outs I use Focustite Scarlett 2i4 2nd Gen btw.
I get the occasional minor audio drop which I believe is related to my GPU (Nvidia GTX 1060) having read a bunch on how their drivers want too much attention from the CPU. I will be looking at switching it out for an AMD Radeon GPU in the near future. If anyone is rocking an AMD card, be sure to let me know your experiences and even Nvidia card users too.
I’ll be doing some benchmarks soon to see what it can actually max out on so keep your eyes peeled for that.
