Not as much the wrong maths but rather a smaller lvl3 cache where the floating point calculations really kick off. AMD stepped up in the K7 days early 2000s, but the last decade until Ryzen has been very weak both regarding comaprison to Intel power but also price/performance.
Ryzen 3 looks promising, so lets see what this will do to our cute little audio landscape.

Anyway, here's a motherboard I just spotted:

no fan...
The pricing for the high end boards are ridiculous IMO, and this is the only passively cooled 570 board. The latest ABBA BIOS for my Aorus x570 Elite changed the behaviour for the chipset fan, now it does not even come on while gaming. I have read reports about some low-end MSI boards and AsRock boards having whiny fans, but that was mere anecdotes.

Hi!
Someone had a direct experience with a Ryzen 3900X in Ableton Live?
I know that Intel's CPU are better optimized with Ableton Live.
My only direct experience was with Intel's.
I don't want to buy another intel refresh with an outdated
architecture.
I've read the Scan Pro Audio comparison but i don't know how could this apply to Ableton(or Intel Optimized programs).
I'm truly undecided for my new Rig...
Thanks in advance to all!

I'm using it in ableton, it's definitely a big step up from the 2600k I was using but hard to be exact as the ableton meter doesn't seem accurate for multiple cores, and because the speed of cores themselves moves around so much depending on load. I do feel like I can just keep adding tons of heavy vstis and sample libraries and it just works, haven't been able to max it out so far.

It took me two motherboards, four bios updates and 3 complete rebuilds to get everything working properly - I was probably an edge case (UAD cards) but audio people tend to hit edge cases.

Right now there's far more info out there about working intel configurations. Brand new platforms always have niggles and the majority prefer an easy life over a little extra value or performance.

Give it 3-6 months and I'll probably change my mind, give it 12-18 and I'll be very surprised if I haven't - it's looking increasingly as though intel don't have anything to keep them competitive in the medium term aside from price cuts.
Could you please elaborate on what board you rejected and what settled on? What are your DPC timings? What memory?

For each spinner I connect to the system, it adds 10W. SSD adds less than 5W. The Seasonic PSU is so efficient that it runs very cool. It is rated at something like over 90% efficiency. Actually, with the way I use my computer, I hit the most efficient part of power envelope of the PSU. A bigger wattage unit won’t get to that part of the envelope with 200W draw.

I use Izotope Rx a lot, it’s noise reduction module uses as many cores as the CPU has. 3900X has 12 cores and it runs 225-250% faster than the computer it replaced; Intel 6 core 8700K, OC’ed to 5.2GHz. Same task used to run for 4’28” on Intel now runs just under 2 minutes. What a difference.

RAMDisc is very nice if you have enough RAM installed. The software basically locks up a certain amount of RAM and it presents that amount as a hard drive to OS. I mainly use it as a scratch disc for any apps that use scratch disc. The 2nd usage is to mount the entire project on RAMDisc. It is so fast it makes your 100+ tracks multi-track project runs like a single stereo pair one. No SSD can touch it.

I know I don’t have to lock all the cores to 4.2GHz, the CPU firmware should automatically get there but what heck. The computer is more responsive, at least it feels that way, when all the cores are clocked up. Oh, ASIO driver loves high clock frequency for low latency.
Thanks for your detailed reply dseetoo Very insightful.
Great that the psu wattage is a total non issue & that you are very aware of what you're doing :D
Since my psu incident I've always aimed to get 750w+ to ease my mind. Like some also said here.

I've tried the RAMDisc the past few weeks and it's indeed impressive as you've said.
On my system SSD I have 550 read/write speeds & via ramdisc hitting 8800 read/write speeds. Been testing it with 2GB of my 16GB total ram to see it's responses.
I'm running an old 2011 system tho I7 2600K 4c/8t OC @4.5ghz -ddr3 2133mhz CL9. But still impressed by the performance to be had.
The limited amount of 16GB ram is an issue but I think I'll put my cubase DAW exec on there along the project of the moment. The ram flushes out on reboot, so it keeps me on my toes & alert I guess. I'm using the free starwind Ramdisk after reading reviews & comparisons.
Should've digged into this much earlier, really been missing out.
Also thanks for posting additional info of your system & the way it responds/performs for you, very useful. Cheers

In the task manager, you see half of the CPU usage on 3900X, that is about it. I don’t load down the DAW much for what I do, most of times, I don’t even use EQs. The track count does go up in my mostly classical music projects but they are still trivial comparing to pop projects. The new Ryzen 3900X rig does allow me to reduce the ASIO buffer size to its minimum setting provided in the driver, which is 96 at 96KHz. However, that could be a function of lower X570 mobo latency, although I have not fully tested latency on both platforms to confirm one way or the other. In general, Ryzen 3900X gives me a better, more responsive day to day computing experience than my older Intel 8700K. Given that, I might go out and upgrade my rig to 3950X at the end of the month.

I wasn't aware of that. Good you point this out.
Initially AMD did state the 1833mhz was the performance sweetspot overall for the 3000 series.
But as the overclockers were at it with benchmarks focusing on the 3900, their results on 1900mhz kinda stuck with me & I guess with more people too.
It seems 3800x runs IF similarly 1833 rather than 1900 too then.
Yes you're right about diminishing returns & the outlier cases are indeed on experimental grounds. Not at all guaranteed.
Tho I am now really convinced to opt for more capacity for ramdisc use

I've heard the news too of 3950x further postponed to November. Supposedly to meet up with high demands & minimizing shortages. ^^
Seems very understandable, but does anyone believe that being the reason even for a second lol
Taking a retrospective look.
The Ryzen cpu's released thusfar since July had many people reporting it's not or hardly hitting their target specs.
AMD took measures for 3950 through additional binning, but still rumors go on from inside anon sources that they're not performing at spec & need more time.
Releasing it in November along their new treadripper 24core, speculated with a new chipset. Isn't it shocking nobody even knows yet? or is it just me?
article from sept.27 here > https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-threa...chipset-rumor/

Regardless of hype & performance records, business wise things are just messy.
Can you imagine their team stressing on releasing 2 products while 1 was already a big deal having their hands full on.
The November threadripper barely have a chipset revealed, not to mention motherboards, who are having their hands on with the bios updates lately.
It seems just a fiasco waiting to happen.

When I heard the postponement to November, personally I've written 3950x off my agenda for now.
Even if they release it at that time, chance of performing at spec, chances on availability at local stores seems like a real headache for anyone.

However from a marketing point of view, I noticed reviewers/overclockers have multiple samples sent to them for benching & promotion.
Same goes for ram, reviewers/overclockers all got hands on multiple strips for promo, while completely unavailable to the general public.
This has lead to the hype & high demand we have now. Priced way lower than the competition Intel, but major issue on supply shortages.
Consequently the 3900 priced at $500 went/goes over the counter for $800+, especially if buying binned like on Silicon lottery etc. goes near/beyond $1000.
Ram too, gskill Neo's built specifically for AMD, priced at $300 goes for near $600 at stores. And everything's sold out.
Am I to believe that it's all coincidence instead of by design. This was a very clever marketing & promo focused campaign. From pricey boards, to double price Cpu's & ram over the counter cuz of induced shortages, makes for a great profit margin for all partners involved, doesn't it?
Not saying it's so on that last bit, just being the devil's advocate
However by the time of 3950x's wider availability & user experiences, Treadripper's of 2020 will see it's day & be the company's main focus.
So it's really interesting how things will turn out.

End of October also starts Mercury retrograde. I don't know if any of you are familiar with astrology, or using it for your business or creative processes.
but during mercury retrograde (mercury counter spinning relative to earth) electronic devices & purchases are highly prone to mishaps. Wrong delivery address, is the most common occurrence.
It's quite proved and documented now but still superstition to many. But I found it true in the many years I've seen things happening.
It's pretty cool once you've seen how it can influence marketing, release dates, meetings & publicity.
November will be quite a hallmark astrologically, so am gonna sit back & watch the cpu show now.

I'm keeping my eye on 3900 with more reasonable pricing on the whole system.
Things are just too messy for me now with the crazy prices.
Am curious to see if the new treadripper brings anything to the table regarding audio/daw along the new chipset, but that's still 2 months out so...
Have a great week guys. cheers

It is a shame that 3900X is in such a short supply. It reminds me of early generation iPhone releases. But, in time I am sure it will all work out. AMD is in it for making money and I am sure they will do whatever they need to do to improve the supply. It least, It is a good problem for AMD to have.

In regard to the CPU not meeting their published speed, keep in mind the amount of difference is tiny; what is the difference of 50MHz in a system running at 4200MHz? About 1.2%! That is it. By the way, I got the new BIOS with ABBA micro-codes. My 3900X can now run at all-core 4300MH, that is 100MHz improvement from the previous BIOS. Does the computer feel any faster? Not really.

The strength of Ryzen CPU is not in its clock speed but in its core count at a given price. You buy and use it only if your app can use the extra cores you pay for it. I am glad I did it and given the experience I have had with 3900X, I most likely will upgrade to 3950X when it becomes available.

Maybe the short supply is due to low chip yields on the new 7nm process...

I was thinking that those Epyc's are eating up all the best chiplet's,
Or they are selling better than anticipated? Either way, the competition
is great if your and Intel or AMD fan.

There's a guy on YouTube called Jim who does a lot of analysis videos. In general he's a bit much, but when it comes to yields specifically he makes some pretty good points actually.

The video is interesting, but I only watched 7 minutes, I don't have time to watch the whole thing.

Unless someone makes it public, we can only guess that the new process has lower yields--since intel couldn't even get there, I am thinking its very difficult to do. I recall TSMC was going to be the only company making 7nm stuff, so they have a number of companies to schedule in. So maybe AMD is in line with their orders.

Personally, I am quite happy with 14mn devices, and wondering if the race to a smaller node size is a prudent think to pursue. Whatever the case, AMD is on that path and I will keep an eye out for news on their product backlogs or lead time.

Since intel couldn't even get to the smaller node size, I think its very difficult technically to do those.
Thanks.

Well that's not the only guess we can make. We can guess that there's a problem getting all 16 cores up to speed, which I doubt, but we can also guess that they're selling more EPYC CPUs than they thought and that TSMC is simply not producing enough silicon to satisfy demand, likely because AMD hadn't ordered enough (i.e. underestimated demand).

Both of those are as possible as "yields" being a problem (and by that I mean defective dies).

Remember that if a chiplet has a defective die or two it can get used as a hex or 12 core chip.

Sure it's difficult, but it's surely the way forward. TSMC executed pretty well it seems since we now see 7nm chips in the server sector where efficiency is key.

Intel has it's own problems that I'm sure they'll solve eventually.

He predicts that higher EPYC demand is leading the 8 core chiplets going there because EPYC sells for more.

He also predicts that the 3950x will be delayed again (I really hope not!).

That is quite high compared to my x470.

My verdict:

I did some more testing (plugin count/load) which i won't post atm.
But my conclusion for now is that the 3900x is great for Kontakt based projects and other stuff with no heavy plugins and long chains.

The results are partially as expected like 2-3 times more headroom to work with in some (user) cases.

But in my projects (and the ones from a good friend) the results are kinda disappointing. In some projects the improvement is less then 20% and in some up to 80%. In general the improvement is more in the 40-60 range compared to the 4790k. However compared to the 8700k it's around 10% faster which is a big no go for me. Which leads me to the single core speed and if we take the CB15 single core it matches the benchmark results vs the real word test.

I hope my test/post is decent enough to help in some way. First time i did this.
(and no i am not a newbie with computers and no i am also certainly not a know it all guy) just for reference long ago i was into OC'ing had some great results (a few top ten places @ AMDgeeks on the s939 socket) So i have a tiny bit of experience.

Oh forgot, i tried a all core OC but didnt help up to 4400MHz so i could try to run a 4600MHz all core, but my gut says i would not get it stable. If i would somebody could be interested.

Oh forgot, i tried a all core OC but didnt help up to 4400MHz so i could try to run a 4600MHz all core, but my gut says i would not get it stable. If i would somebody could be interested.
I've had a similar experience using the DAW performance meter i.e. not a night-and-day difference, but I'm not sure how accurate that is as what I have noticed is that I can keep adding stuff and the meter doesn't really seem to go up, which I think makes sense given that the increase in power is in the number of cores, rather than in the cores themselves. The DAW meter seems to me to be set up to measure single core performance, at least in Ableton it doesn't seem to be well suited to measuring performance across multiple cores. EDIT: I'd also add that for me I'm not running an overclock, so the Ryzen core speed is going up and down all the time depending on load which again I think makes it very hard for the DAW to give an accurate performance reading. Like I say I can keep piling on VSTs and sample libraries and it hasn't stumbled yet, so I'm pretty satisfied (although granted it's nothing like the value I got going from a core duo to a 2600K in 2011 for half the price...).

Guys need some help. Can't decide between Ryzen 7 2700x and Ryzen 5 3600 (some occasional gaming but music production is priority)
Ram: G-Skill 3200 Mhz Ripjaws
Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
DAWs:Fl Studio 12 and Ableton Live 9

Without any doubt, Ryzen 5 3600.

If you find the AMD default cooler too noisy, this one is way
more silent/efficient and not expensive.

I think it is related to power management settings, as soon as I opened Chrome with 7-8 tabs the latency actually went down and stayed lower for about 10 seconds.

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Hits 4.3 GHz On All 16 Cores With AIO Cooler

not sure how to feel about 33% more cost for 25% more performance on all cores 3900x vs 3950x (stock)

(This is just my regular all purpose rig)
my 3900x on x470 Gigabyte gaming 7 board does 4.1-4.17ghz all cores when running R15 with a AIO H115i in push pull, config

When running in quite config, it will be about 4.05-4.1

Also depending on temps and load I have seen it boost all cores to 4.2 for a fraction of a sec, which is useless but its their.

even with all fans maxed which I have a lot but 90% it runs at 500-700 rpm fans, and water being close to room temps, It will not go higher, maybe a little, and pushing more voltage will increase the temps by 5-10C easy, for not even 100mhz more

so I found a balance for highest auto boost and lowest temps, depending on type of benchmark its 76-83C when hitting all cores
