In this YouTube video, the speaker discusses their regret after upgrading to the 7950X3D CPU and explains that the 7950X is a better choice for a gaming PC build. The speaker conducted benchmark tests on both CPUs and found that the 7950X3D performs better with high-end Nvidia GPUs at higher resolutions. They also highlight Micro Center's March Monitor Madness sale and their wide range of PC parts selection and build services. The speaker concludes by mentioning the upcoming launch of the 450.7800 X3D in April, which they believe will make more sense for those looking to upgrade.

  • 00:00:00 In this section, the YouTuber talks about his experience with the 7950x3d CPU that he camped out all night to buy but regrets purchasing. He needed it to upgrade a PC that he's giving away on his Twitch channel but thinks that people's anticipation for the chip was misguided. He then discusses Micro Center's March Monitor Madness sale and highlights some of the deals they have on gaming monitors. He also talks about Micro Center's PC parts selection, build services, and mentions that they have over 30,000 items in stock. The YouTuber then goes into detail about the PC build he put together and shows off the specs before concluding the section.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, the YouTuber discusses how he upgraded to the 7950x3d but regretted the decision, and instead found that the 7950x was a better choice for the gaming PC he was building. After benchmarking the CPUs six times each, he found that the 7950x3d started to pull ahead at higher resolutions, and he realized that the 7900XTX graphics card was actually the culprit for the poorer performance at lower resolutions. He concluded that the x3d CPU was not always a sensible upgrade, as it performs better with high-end Nvidia GPUs, and those who typically buy a $700 CPU are also likely to use a higher end GPU and play at 1440p or 4K resolution. Overall, he had a ton of fun waiting for the chip at Micro Center, but the confusion he had with AMD this generation made him question whether the weight for the upgrade was actually worth it.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the speaker talks about the performance difference between the 7950X and the 7950X3D, stating that while the latter chip may seem like the fastest system to build, it comes with compromises such as a lower clock speed in some applications resulting in lower productivity in certain scenarios. Furthermore, the price difference between the two chips makes the 7950X a more sensible option, as it is cheaper and can be found bundled with RAM or a motherboard at Micro Center. The speaker also mentions the upcoming launch of the 450.7800 X3D in April by AMD, which they believe will make more sense for those looking to upgrade.
