AMD Ryzen 9 5900X @ 4.80GHz, Socket AM4, code name Vermeer, TDP 105W, cores 12, threads 24, base clock 3.70GHz, turbo clock 4.80GHz, memory controller Dual Channel PC4-25600U (DDR4-3200), free multiplier yes, CPU- Functions VT-Vi, X86-64, AMD-V, AVX, AVX2, AES (2x FMA), NX-Bit, EVP, Architecture Zen 3, production 7nm (CPU, TSMC), 12nm (I / O, GlobalFoundries), L2 cache 6MB (12x 512kB), L3 cache 64MB (2x 32MB), chipset interface PCIe 4.0 x4, PCIe lanes 24x PCIe 4.0 (16 + 4 + 4), memory bandwidth 51.2GB / s.
19 percent more performance per cycle, an average of 26 percent more 3D performance and up to 24 percent more efficiency. AMD wants to make Intel look old. Thanks to the extensively improved Zen 3 architecture, multi and single threading performance should increase by 20 percent and more, while the core counts of 16, 12, 8 and 6 remain the same.
At a higher level, a CPU cluster (CCX) now consists of eight instead of four CPU cores. A single core can thus access a full 32 MByte level 3 cache in single-threading applications; In addition, the communication effort is reduced if an application uses more than four cores. 3D games also benefit from this.
On average, the performance per cycle (Instructions per Cycle, IPC) should increase by 19 percent - more than when switching from Zen + to Zen 2 (+ 15 percent). In games, AMD mentions an average increase of 26 percent. While Intel's Core-i-10000 processors were usually a bit faster than AMD's Ryzen 3000 in gaming, AMD wants to deliver the best player CPUs with the successors. Only in the rarest cases should the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X deliver fewer frames per second than Intel's fastest gaming processor, the Core i9-10900K, such as Battlefield 5. In the esports games League of Legends (LoL) and Counter- Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO), which used to do particularly well to Intel, AMD wants to outpace the competition.

ASUS has now renamed the formerly independent TUF series (The Ultimate Force) to "TUF Gaming" and has been the entry point into the ASUS gaming world ever since. The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) is characterized by the colors black, gray and a little yellow. The I/O panel and the PCH fan are encased in a plastic cover. Fortunately, a passive cooler is pre-installed for the lower M.2 connection.
With the X570-FCH, AMD is taking a big step forward compared to the X370 and X470-FCH, because the X570-FCH is the first chipset to establish the PCI Express 4.0 feature in the desktop segment. At the same time, the number of lanes increases from 8 to 16, of which 12 can be flexibly distributed by the mainboard manufacturer. The CPU and chipset are connected via a downlink and uplink with PCIe 4.0 x4 (Ryzen 3000).
The adjustable RGB lighting on the lower right side provides visual accents. With the TUF Gaming X570-Plus Gaming, manufacturer ASUS relies on high-quality materials and clean manufacturing. The engineers paid special attention to the capacitors, which had to go through a strict quality test. In general, the layout of the board is well thought out.
ASUS installs four DIMM sockets (dual channel) on the mainboard. With current 32 GB memory kits, you could create a more than sufficient memory expansion to 128 GB (max. 3,200 MHz, 4,400 MHZ in the OC). In order to be able to avoid the problem of possible overheating, the manufacturer installs two passive heat sinks (voltage converters) and an active chipset cooler (fan) at the factory. ASUS has given the board a digital power supply that can access 6+2 phases (6 phases for the CPU; 2 phases for the memory). With the new X570 boards, ASUS advertises the so-called SafeSlot, which the manufacturer describes as a particularly hard-wearing version of a PCIe slot with metal reinforcement. This should offer potential advantages when using heavy high-end graphics cards.
Positive characteristics of the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi):
very good performance with a sufficient CPU power supply
Sufficient equipment, including eight SATA 6GBit/s interfaces and three USB 3.1 Gen2 sockets
good overall performance, good stability and good energy efficiency when idle
two M.2 M-Key interfaces (PCIe 4.0 x4)
WLAN-ac up to 1.73 GBit/s and Bluetooth 5.0 for the Wi-Fi version
Negative characteristics of the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi):

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
