This month, we’re bringing lots of small updates to our main build chart (and reaffirming some decisions from last month):
Not content with shaking up the CPU market, AMD have also thrust themselves squarely into this year’s midrange GPU market with the newly released AMD Radeon RX 5700. It’s time to play some games! Yet before that, we need to build a PC. Let’s get to it!
The AMD Ryzen 7 has all grown up now, and it’s become a bit of a monster. When AMD puts in its press release that this R7 3700X gives dominant gaming performance, you know they meant business. Let’s take a look at building with it!
New CPUs means new chipsets, and (even with their better inter-generational compatibility) AMD is no exception. We’re taking a look at the X570 chipset to see what’s new with this type of motherboard!
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition is one hell of a mouthful for a model name, yet there’s some good reason for it. Let’s have a look at why it’s called that, and then look at building a PC with it!
Bend the rules (and the GPU shroud design) with the new AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. There’s technically 2 versions of this card, so let’s get into some details before we build us a PC with it for gaming!
Are you seeing all of these Ryzen releases and thinking, “Everything is still too expensive!” Or even, “I just want to play Fortnite and CS:GO at 1080p, I don’t need all this!” Well, do we have the processor for you. Well, AMD does—in the form of the Ryzen 5 3400G.
The AMD Ryzen 7 3800X is the big daddy of the new 8-core range from AMD. With its serious performance comes a serious price tag and system requirements to boot. So let’s take a look at building a big (serious) system with it!
Next up on the update list is the great all-rounder out of the box, namely the AMD R5 3600X. Let’s have a look at putting together a good multi-purpose gaming and productivity build with this CPU!
The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is (at least for now) the flagship CPU from the new range from AMD. With its huge 12-cores and 24-threads, it has ‘productivity king’ written all over it. So let’s look at building a productivity powerhouse system with it!
