Published on

Alex's top-end gaming rig has paired a Ryzen 7 1700X with an RTX 2080 Ti, with often CPU-limited results. But what happens when he rebuilds his rig with an all-new $500 Ryzen 9 3900X? Are all of those gaming issues he had with the 1700X resolved? And just how fast is this chip in retro PC gaming? It's a Ryzen review unlike any other - with a focus on actual gaming vs benchmarks.
