less power = less heat and fan noise? I guess


please Can you make a video of using with AMD ryzen 9 5900x Cpu on a dual cpu motherboard. And with ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3090 OC edition and AMD Radeon 6900 XT. And Aorus Gen4 AIC SSD and wd black sn850 ssd.

ReSense Gaming says:

shiiit 5% performance but 30% more power. a quick amd tune and they would be equal speed…

Lord V1LE says:

What do you chose? A Mac.

'With the (significantly) notable exception of the motherboard, chipset, and storage…'

For anybody knowledgeable about this topic, I'm so curious to hear any answers to this question: Around 6:12 in the video, Linus mentions that AMD has made compromises that appear to have been wise ones. I assume he is talking about the power saving of the AMD Ryzen processors here. However, he also says that this is true "at least that's true for a machine running an RTX 3060 rather than a 3070 or 3080." Is it implied here that this is likely to be different with higher power GPUs, or is this just a "that's all we know" statement? I'm considering getting a Lenovo Legion 7 Gen 6 (AMD) vs a Legion 7i Gen 6 (Intel). The GPU would be a 3070 either way, and after reading a whole lot about this and watching this video I honestly cannot decide which is better. I've seen some indications that AMD may have some issues utilizing memory as effectively, which could compromise performance slightly in certain games. Not sure. If anybody has any advice on one vs the other in combo with an RTX 3070 GPU, I'd really appreciate it.

Lycanite says:

Why didn't the AMD model have PCIE-4? Seems the specs weren't equal after all, unless I'm misunderstanding something here.

Jaz King says:

Finally.. I wanna buy a desktop
. Hopefully can clear my mind

XMG says:

XMG here, ask me anything! And to my fellow readers from Europe: XMG CORE series will be in stock with both i7-11800H and Ryzen 7 5800H starting this month. The AMD version was actually launched early this year but never saw any supply apart from a few samples. Things are getting better: we see more AMD Ryzen supply coming to our doorstep night now. A lot of 5800H is going to end up in XMG CORE while most of the 5900HX supply will go into XMG NEO. If you want to know more about this topic, use your favorite search engine and search for "Supply Update on AMD, Intel & NVIDIA and related silicon for 2H/2021" on the XMG_gg subreddit. Until then, I'm here to answer any questions about life, the universe and everything XMG. Just reply directly to this comment! 🙂 // Tom
