I’ve come across several threads on Reddit claiming that the performance on AM4 systems is capped vs. Intel. However, I’m unable to determine whether this is actually true, and if so, why? The threads usually say it’s a limitation of the “chipset.”
The AMD 5950x is 16 Cores 32 thread. What exactly is this ‘chipset’ limitation that would restrict the number of plots the machine can achieve? Why wouldn’t intel have a similar limitation?
Ah, I see. So technically a 10900k can outperform a 5950x if given the same amount of RAM (assuming under DDR4000 → 3200) and NVME storage? The intel platform would be several hundreds of $$ cheaper than AM4 as well.
Not sure why people are building 5950x systems in that case! I see a lot of them with DDR4-3000 Memory and 5950x
