That’s quite a lot to take in and those new desktop X3D have my mouth watering a bit. I only upgraded to a 5800X in the last year, I don’t exactly need another upgrade but gosh they sound great. I need a PSU and GPU update next though…
Will you be looking to grab any of these? Do let me know in the comments.

This is also probably a good place to note that AMD have confirmed overheating and thermal throttling issues with their new Radeon RX 7900 XTX, which YouTuber der8auer has been detailing across two videos. The issue affects AMD’s reference cards, not the ones designed by their partners. The statement AMD released:
We are working to determine the root cause of the unexpected throttling experienced by some while using the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards made by AMD. Based on our observations to-date, we believe the issue relates to the thermal solution used in the AMD reference design and appears to be present in a limited number of the cards sold. We are committed to solving this issue for impacted cards.
