But can it run Crysis?
Edit: I just checked out of curiosity because the price point of $500 seemed a bit high for AMD. My hunch was correct. Looks like the 9900K is actually cheaper AND slightly better for gaming than the 3900X. Did not expect that. The 9700 is even cheaper and still better. Looks like the 3700X is basically the same as the 3900X in games but loads cheaper. I'm just gonna hope for everyone that those core heavy monsters will become useful in gaming at some point.
^ note this is from before the Agesa ABBA (boost clock fix) update.
And this is with one of those factory overclocked 2080 Ti's.... the CPU isnt the bottlenecks for performance.
On avg its probably less than 1% performance differnce, between the two, for general gameing (at 1440p).

~0,4% performance differnce.
Yeah the "smart" consumer buys a 9600k or 3600X and calls it a day.
Better to save the money for a stronger graphics card instead.
