Assembla che Passa # 253
Index Budget Configuration Gaming Configuration Extra Configuration Assembla che Passa is a weekly column that collects the main novelties related to PC gaming hardware and offers three configurations, divided by price range, designed for those who want to assemble or update the own car. As usual, suggestions and corrections are welcome as long as the tones are adequate. A further tip is to read the paragraphs that present the configurations before battling in the comments.

AMD's response to the new Intel processors will arrive later this year and with second generation 7-nanometer processors, at least according to as stated by the same company in a conference call intended for investors. Denied, therefore, the delay insinuated by some recent rumors that aimed at a functional referral to make the Ryzen 4000 series collide with the Intel Rocket Lake processors. Of course, it is possible that AMD intends to keep some models in order to annoy the competition, but we can expect a Christmas in the name of a series that promises a clear leap in terms of single core power, with all that follows in terms of overall computing capacity of processors that arrive as at present with at least 16 cores and 32 threads. Removed the rumors, however, there is a waiting period of a few months that AMD has decided to fill first with the B550 motherboards, already available, and then with the Ryzen 3000XT processors, arriving in July with higher maximum frequencies than to standard models.

In the case of motherboards, AMD B550 speak of the arrival of the PCIe interface 4.0 in the average range, although bound to the lines of the CPU and not the chipset, and talk of support for Ryzen 4000 with solutions that do not only look at extreme overclocking, but in most cases reach far higher than B450 in terms of power, cooling, and memory clock. This corresponds to an average increase in price of 20%, which in many cases results in figures rather high. No shortage of models in the budget that count, however, an improved power supply, but in the majority of cases we talk about solutions, over-sized configurations, budget AMD, made more interesting in these weeks since the arrival of the processors Ryzen 3 3100 and Ryzen 3 3300X.

And here's where it gets the new chipset A520, popped a surprise with the supposed lineup of ASRock motherboards think to mount it. While referring to an indiscretion, the information seems more reliable, and in addition to revealing the 12 variants, among which are those of the famous series Pro4 and a model ITX, includes various information that is consistent with what we expect, starting from the lack of overclocking for the CPU. But it also speaks of surrender to the PCIe interface 4.0 that adds to the inevitable small number of lines PCIe, and to the only two slots for memory. However, all in function of prices below 100 euros, contrary to what is seen with the B550 low end configurations, also suitable for PC budget and is equipped with a Ryzen 3 3300X, already rather pushed, would be a part of excellent performance in the game, also ensuring ample opportunity to upgrade to GPU is definitely powerful.

The probable arrival of the motherboards A520 should mitigate the controversy linked to the price of the B550, but this is not the only dilemma that AMD is having to manage at this time. The decision to launch models driven of Ryzen 3000X has given rise to several doubts in the face of processors that appear to be selected versions of the previous models sold at a higher price. To be clear, pushing 100 or 200 Mhz more clock tip, the new CPUS should provide some advantage, especially in games and in applications that look at the frequency of the single core, but this strategy clashes with a AMD, which in recent years has accustomed us to great processors that are sold at a competitive price. Among other things if for Ryzen 5 3600XT we talk about sink Wraith Spire integrated and a price increase of 25 dollars, for the 3800XT and the 3900XT we talk about increases in the respective 40 and 50 dollars with the elimination of the heat sink is included in the package. We also recommend the use of a AIO from 280mm or a heat sink to the air of high end to be able to take full advantage of the CPU, thereby even further increasing the expense. To be clear, these are special models that take nothing away from the lineup based, among other things, enhanced by the decrease of price of the 3900X that could be a taste of the other denominations, but there were those who had hoped for a move more aggressive.

In the meantime, proceed with the work on the new generation GPU of NVIDIA, with all the inevitable load of rumor, which increases with the approach the supposed launch on the market. Specifically, the indiscretion, the most recent would be the output for September, in conjunction with or at a short distance from the official announcement, also revealing an alleged timeline of the production of the GeForce RTX 3000 which at the time would be in the validation phase. According to what leaked the first sample would be scheduled for July, while the test on electromagnetic interference should close by the end of the month. For August, instead, it speaks of the final version of the BIOS and the start of the mass production that would lead to the proclamation or for the end of August or for the month of September. At that point, you should then get the reference, even though they may be in number lower than usual given the timing and given the problems of this 2020.

Set a Budget The configuration budget is aimed at saving but it is said that there is no space for the upgrade where you have interesting perspectives. The proposals in this band include solutions designed for the games at a low technical profile and build oriented to 1080p.

The absence of a Core i3-10100F in the new lineup, Intel leaves the ball to the Core i3-9100F that suffers from the lack of Hyper-Threading, which is useful for multitasking and computing power, but it guarantees good performance in the game against an expenditure is very low. It is 5 euros cheaper than the average for the last few months.

Despite the limit of 4GB, the basic model of the Radeon RX 570 continues to boast the best ratio between price and performance, and ensuring good margins for manoeuvre in 1080p. We are speaking of almost 60fps with medium quality in a very heavy, such as Metro Exodus, definitely enjoyable even with some compromises in graphics settings.

The yield of the accounts with the frame rate is just around the corner, but with a good base, you can always sell the GPU is old before it depreciates in value too, so buy a new battery, just in time to tackle the next blockbuster video game breaks the hardware.

The Core i5-10400F is one of the processors the most attractive of the new lineup of Intel, made more powerful than its predecessor from the implementation of Hyper-Threading, and that is far from the problems of the top models in terms of management of the temperatures in terms of price increases related to the launch period.

of course, to do this turn serves a Z490 that inflates the price, but also guarantee good connectivity, and compatibility with future series of Intel processors, apparently intended to support the PCIe interface 4.0. It may be, therefore, the investment that we absorb giving up once again but not at high performance with the Radeon RX 5600XT which is available at a low price even in the good version of SAPPHIRE Pulse.

On the other hand, let's face it, who does not like to have a nice engine under the hood even if there is to adhere to the speed limit?

While we wait for the price of the Core i7-10700K is close to the recommended, we are once again with the processors Ryzen and choose a cheaper model, even if still able to ensure good power and room for overclocking discrete. This is because the 3800X, on paper of just over 3700X, enjoys a higher selection that may be worth the price difference with a good heatsink.

Focusing on the configuration of the high-end but not extreme, this week we are content with GeForce RTX 2070 Super, slightly below the RTX 2080, capable of ensuring framerate high at 1080p and 1440p. Also can go in 4K with the DLSS in the version 2.0 provides a quality of image that is finally clean, so as to anticipate a future in which the upscaling managed by the deep learning will be the base to give more to all the GPUS.
