Computer of the month — September 2019

“Computer of the month” is a category that is purely Advisory in nature, and all assertions in the articles are supported by evidence in the form of reviews, various tests, personal experience, and confirmed news. The next edition is traditionally published with the support of a computer store “regard”, on the site where you can always arrange delivery anywhere in our country and pay for the order online. Details can be read on this page. “Regard” is famous among users is quite adequate prices

for computer accessories and a large selection of products. Besides, the store offers free Assembly: you are the configuration — employees of the company it is collected.

Computer of the month — September 2019

“Regard” — partner of the rubric, so the “Computer of the month” we orientirueshsya for the products that are sold in this store. But any Assembly that is displayed in the material is just a guideline. The links in the “Computer of the month” are the relevant categories of goods store. In addition, the tables indicate the actual at the time of writing, the prices, rounded up to the nearest multiple of 500 rubles. Of course, during the “life cycle” of the material (one month from the date of publication) the cost of certain goods may increase or decrease.

For beginners who does not dare “to make” his PC, went out for a detailed walkthrough of the Assembly of the system unit. It turns out that in the “Computer of the month” I tell you how to assemble a computer, and the manual how to do it.

Starter Assembly

The “entry ticket” to the world of modern PC games. The system will allow you to play all the AAA projects in Full HD resolution at mostly high graphics quality settings, but sometimes have to put and average. Such systems do not have significant reserve strength (over the next 2-3 years), replete with compromises, need to upgrade, but are smaller than the other configurations.

Immediately I will say that the Assembly of this “Computer of the month” has not changed in comparison with the August issue. We cannot say that we are faced with a bad trend. Though, because over the past almost three years (the”Computer of the month” on our website appeared in early 2017), we experienced many exciting and unpleasant moments. Expensive flash memory, and with it — memory and solid state drives. Cheaper oil, and with it the devalued Russian currency. We are faced with a shortage of Intel products — still fresh memories of Core i5-8400 sold at 20+ thousand. Finally, for a very long time the whole world literally tore mining fever, the echoes of which are still being felt today. So a bit of stability and calm, we just do not hurt, at least in September.

Shestiyadernik Ryzen 5 1600 “settled” in the startup Assembly AMD in July — at a time when on the news about the imminent release of a family of chips Ryzen 3000 prices for “red” processors of previous generations have rapidly gone down. Now Ryzen 5 1600 subject to rounding 8 is 500 rubles, plus another 1,000 rubles, I recommend to spend on let and unpretentious, but the tower cooler. The same deepcool gammaxx Deepcool 200T will allow you to safely overclock the chip to 3.8-3.9 GHz — it’s not too hard to inflate the voltage of the CPU, because the system is used not the fancy mother Board Gigabyte GA-AB350M-DS3H V2. Can I buy Ryzen version 5 1600 in-a-BOX-version? You can, but in the “Regarde” for shestiyadernik, complete with that immediately follows the cooler, asking the same 9 500 rubles. The tower deepcool gammaxx Deepcool 200T still be better.

To be honest, every month I with trembling open the tab Ryzen 5 1600 in the “Regarde”. Because it is clear that CPU a little bit, but more expensive. Starter Assembly — not rubber, and the amount of 9 500 rubles for a bunch of “processor + cooler” is what is called on the brink. But we would like to offer you the 6-core is really strong link in the system, which will allow, for example, to upgrade the video card, and take something of the level of Radeon RX 5700. Given that Ryazan will be dispersed, of course.

If there is no money for Ryzen 5 1600, you will have to choose among the 4-core models of AMD. Immediately reject in the direction of such chips, as Ryzen Ryzen 5 and 2500X 1500X 5 — at the price of 8,000 rubles (excluding cooler) savings 500 rubles looks like the real sabotage. But for Ryzen 3 2300X in OEM equipment please already 6 500 rubles. This option can be considered. Even more interesting look Ryzen 5 1400 (6 000) and Ryzen 2 1200 (4 500 rubles). After 4 000 rubles — this is a decent savings. Besides all these processors are very easy to overclock at least to 3.8-3.9 GHz. To compare the performance of most of the listed CPU in games using a pretty fast graphics card you can read the article “Overview of AMD Ryzen 5 3 2500X and 2300X: the Quad dreams.” For example, in the Shadow of the Tomb Raider Ryzen 5 1600 was faster Ryzen 3 2300X 46 %, if you compare the minimum FPS. And an 84% Ryzen 3 1300X, which, as we know, a little faster Ryzen 3 1200. Of course, in the starting Assembly is not used RTX 2080 GeForce Ti, and 8 GB version of the Radeon RX 570, so that the difference between the stipulated AMD chips will be significantly less. And yet, the presented results clearly show that Ryzen 5 1600 there is a decent margin of safety, and a 4-core “stones” Zen — no. So decide for yourself, dear readers, do I need to save now 2-3 thousand rubles at the Central processor. I don’t believe in.

In the case of starting to build the Intel the question of the so-called downgrade CPU is not worth. Core i3-9100F is the cheapest at the time of this writing the Quad for the BOX version which “regard” is asking 7 500 rubles subject to rounding. And if you ask for to save on CPU, you have to take a dual-core model, and it is better (more profitable) just exactly Pentium Gold g5400 is (4 500 rubles). However, in modern games (e.g. Battlefield V) “stub”, to be honest, is already bogged down. I have mentioned this in the last issue of “Computer of the month”: the era of dual-core chips in gaming systems (even the entry level) has ended. Not far off sunset and 4-core options. Evidence you’ll find in the article “Computer of the month. Special: increase the budget performance of assemblies of different ages in the games.”

There are over 11 500 rubles give 6-core Core i5-9400F — and, honestly, it is better to look in his direction (if the AM4 platform for you — tabu), instead of trying to save the above described manner.

Please note that in order for the motherboard identified the Core i3-9100F, you need to update its BIOS. With high probability, in retail you will sell the device with old firmware version. Immediately after purchase, contact the warranty Department of the store and ask them to update the BIOS. And use the computer health.

As for the graphics card starting to build here again I rely on the 8-Gigabyte version of the Radeon RX 570 — in August, the model RX ARMOR 570 MSI OC 8G asking 12 000. Its direct competitor, the GeForce GTX 1650 — costs about the same. Only now, judging by our review, accelerator NVIDIA is slower and besperspektivnyak (due to 4 GB VRAM, of course). This card can only advise those who play some undemanding games that are much better optimized for GeForce. For example, fans of the ageless GTA V.

Interestingly, apparently, the GeForce GTX Ti 1650 will be available this fall. Only if the rumors are correct, and the graphics card will actually have only 4 GB of memory, it hardly ever appears in the opening Assembly of the “Computer of the month”.

In General, the situation with the choice of graphics card is in some degree a stalemate. The 8-Gigabyte Radeon RX 570 which excels in modern games using high quality graphics. And… and everything. Version of the same accelerator with 4 GB of VRAM are in the range of 11-12 thousand rubles, that is on the purchase of such an accelerator will not work to significantly save money. About GeForce GTX 1650 I already told you, but the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is 9-11 thousand rubles. At that price before you stuff, not a gaming video card.

Perhaps another step towards cheapening the start of Assembly would be to buy 8 GB of RAM instead of 16 GB. Just know that now many modern games consume more than 8 GB of RAM. In June on our website published an article “Choosing the best gaming laptops from 60 to 100 thousand rubles”, she clearly proves it.

So save the starting Assembly is nothing. We see that the pursuit of profit in the 2-4 thousand rubles in the end turns into a serious performance degradation of the system and reducing the already small capacity for the future.

The base Assembly

With this PC you can safely play the next couple of years all modern games in Full HD resolution at high and maximum graphics quality settings.

There is an irrefutable fact: the new processors Ryzen was very good. Architecture Zen 2 excels in games and intensive applications. Of course, now the chips Ryzen 3000 sold out very well — as fresh-baked pies that, unfortunately, leads to a shortage of AMD products.

In the last month Ryzen 5 3600 cost an average of 14 500 rubles, however, in September “regard” asks for this shestiyadernik 1 000 rubles more. Of course, rose and other a-series chips Ryzen 3000. At the same time for 12 000 rubles, you can take Ryzen 5 2600X for 13 500 rubles for sale 8-core 1700 Ryzen 7 and 15 500 rubles — Ryzen 7 2700. At first glance, it seems that it is better to use 8-core, because cores more!

In the last issue I already described my opinion on this matter. Ryzen 5 3600 processor a fundamentally different level. Update architecture and layout features of chipsetov led to the fact that the processors generation Matisse has improved performance, especially in games. Read the article “Overview of AMD Ryzen Ryzen 5 and 3600X 3600 5: shestiyadernik healthy person” — the test results clearly show that when used in stand powerful graphics card the new AMD shestiyaderny ahead in games processors Ryzen first and second generation (both six and eight cores) 10-15 %. It is clear that a reference Assembly recommended a much less rapid adapters class Radeon RX 590 and GeForce GTX 1660, but all assemblies “Computer of the month” I represent including the future upgrade, we’ve talked about this when discussing the initial configuration.

In General, I believe that the situation with the choice of CPU for AMD base Assembly disassembled in some detail, therefore, then decide for yourself. Want to save money, but do not want to bother with overclocking — take 6-core Ryzen 5 2600X. No money for Ryzen 5 3600, but you’re not averse to the overclocking — buy Ryzen 7 1700 and independently raise its frequency to at least 3.9 GHz.

And yet I do not exclude the possibility that in the future Ryzen 5 3600 will leave the base Assembly if its value will continue to grow. Perhaps soon there will be a six-core model Ryzen 5 3500, which will lose support SMT technology.

Very likely the mother Board not the chipset X570 purchased now in the store, simply do not define a new chip. To update the BIOS version can be armed with a processor Ryzen first or second generations, or ask to do it in the warranty section of the store in which the purchase was cost. Before buying, always make sure that your chosen motherboard supports the new processors Ryzen! It is simple: search the device name; go to the manufacturers website and open the tab “support”. For example, the mother Board ASRock Pro4 B450M-F required firmware version 3.30.

By the way, we have tested the CPU Ryzen 5 3600X using a variety of motherboards based on chipsets B450, X470 and X570. The fact that at the output of the chip family Matisse went to many rumors that only the most advanced chipset will provide the best performance Ryzen 3000 the Precision Boost 2. Well, our tests show that this is not so: Ryzen 5 3600X showed the same level of performance when using three different motherboards. So solutions based on chipset B450 is ideal for the three series.

It all builds AMD and Intel there is some shift in the direction of the AM4 platform. And all because Ryzen 3600 5 costs significantly more than the Core i5-9400F and something is not going to fall to the recommended $ 200. On the one hand, in games in Full HD resolution using the GeForce Ti RTX 2080 our tests show that these chips are very smooth. So, Core i5-9400 (in the Assembly, use a chip with the letter F in the title, which says that CPU has no integrated GPU) is a little faster Ryzen 5 to 3600, in five cases out of eight. However, in this case it is necessary to correctly perceive the information. In the article Intel Core i5-9400 tested with high frequency memory, and these sets of RAM, as we know, are only supported on motherboards based on chipsets Z370 and Z390 Express. In our case, applied Core i5-9400F and apply it with slow RAM DDR4-2666, because in order to save in the base Assembly Intel added fee for Junior B360 Express chipset. If you read the article “Details about Intel H370, B360 and H310: what will have to tolerate those who will save on the motherboard?”, you know that using slow RAM even with younger shestidennomu Intel significantly reduced the level of system performance. So in our case, the Core i5-9400F will be slower Ryzen 5 3600 games, if you use a video card High-end class. At the same time when using the slower graphics adapter are represented in this section of the system will demonstrate similar results.

At the same time in the system AMD uses modules Crucial Ballistix Sport LT Grey (BLS8G4D32AESBK) that by default operate on the effective frequency of 3200 MHz, but quietly dispersed to 3600 MHz. To use faster RAM kits along with chips Ryzen 3000 has no special meaning. Why, you can read the article “AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: Zen 2 in all its glory”.

More affordable alternatives to Core i5-9400F within the base Assembly Intel, unfortunately, no, because we are dealing with cheapest shestiyadernik. “Down” to the level of a 4-core Core i3 there is no point — this point we have discussed previously.

As always, explain about the choice of graphics card, because once again the emphasis is on models such as the GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB and Radeon RX 590 8 GB. On the one hand, video cards are the same, but accelerator NVIDIA consistently ahead of the Radeon RX 590 — 8% on average. On the other hand, the Radeon RX 590 for 2 GB more of VRAM. In the article “How much RAM is necessary for modern games” clearly shows that the difference in the amount of VRAM affects now and in the future may be very critical. It turns out, the Radeon RX 590 is slower than the GeForce GTX 1660, but it will last longer on the course. As always, I recommend to choose a graphics card based on the list of your favorite games. If the GeForce is better, then take the GeForce GTX 1660.

Again, please see the article “Overview of AMD Ryzen Ryzen 5 and 3600X 3600 5: shestiyadernik healthy person”. From it we know that when you load all six cores the first model operates at a frequency of 4.1 is 4.35 GHz and the second frequency is 4.0-4.2 GHz. In this case, both sample did not lend themselves to overclocking. We know that Ryzen 3600 5 15 500 rubles, but for Ryzen 3600X 5 asking 18 500 rubles. Believe that to pay 3000 rubles for an extra 100 MHz is not necessary. Therefore, the base and the optimal builds are only used Junior 6-core model Matisse.

By the way, a similar situation is observed between such models as Ryzen Ryzen 3700X 7 and 7 3800X. So in advanced, and maximum assemblies also used a younger, more affordable model — only eight.

By the way, used in the basic and optimal assemblies of identical processors has led some readers to conclude that these configurations differ little from one another. However, I strongly disagree with this opinion! The increase in the budget of the Assembly of the PC allows to use higher quality motherboard, faster SSD NVMe storage, and more efficient cooler and power supply. Well, the case I chose is more expensive. With all this Assembly is installed in the Radeon RX 5700, which is faster Radeon RX 590 on average 30 %.

Optimal Assembly Intel have changed even more. Shestiyadernik Core i5-9500F is in September 14, 000. When you load all six cores it runs at 4.2 GHz, which is 300 MHz more than the Core i5-9400F. In my opinion, this is a noticeable difference — especially considering the fact that yourself we to overclock the Intel processor can’t. Letter “F” in the name of the device suggests that this is a locked chip with integrated graphics. Moreover, for several months, I advise you to take this system cheap cost chipset Z370 or Z390 Express. Yes, we have a processor that cannot overclock. However, to expedite it we will be using the fast RAM. Our tests show that a bunch of “Core i5-8400 + DDR4-3200” level of performance is not inferior to the luxury “Core i5-8500 + DDR4-2666”. Therefore, Core i5-9500F will also become, shall we say, a step above. Moreover, such fees over time will replace Junior 6-core with something more interesting and productive. And in such a configuration PC with Core i5-9500F definitely not inferior to the system with 5 3600 Ryzen in games.

As always, the optimal Assembly recommended Radeon 5700 RX — model reference design is an average of 26-27 thousand rubles. It has its drawbacks: the graphics card is very hot and quite noisy under load. However, with these disadvantages, it is possible to be reconciled, knowing that the youngest member Navi is consistently faster and cheaper GeForce RTX 2060 — the difference between these cards is on average 7 %. On sale, by the way, already there are monitored by PWM version of the Radeon RX 5700. For example, in “Regarde” you can take the model Sapphire Radeon RX Pulse 5700 OC (11294-01-20G), which is 30 000 rubles. As I said, monitored by PWM version, the bulk will cost much more. But they will be faster, quieter and cooler.

Cost 6-gigabajtnoj version GeForce RTX 2060 varies in the range from 24 500 to 34 500 rubles. But 8 GB SUPER-models are 31 to 36 thousand rubles. Recently, our website has published a review of GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER GAMING OC 8G, which once again clearly showed that the 6 GB VRAM is the weak point of modern graphics cards. The lack of video memory 6 GB version is also evident in the games that support ray tracing. Therefore, the presence of RTX GeForce 2060 modern technologies, for which, obviously, the future is not significant advantage over Radeon RX 5700.

So for optimal Assembly choose between the cheaper option (Radeon 5700 RX) and expensive (RTX 2060 SUPER GeForce, GeForce 5700 XT RX).

Advanced Assembly

System that in most cases, to run a particular game at the maximum graphics quality settings in Full HD resolution and maximum settings with resolution of WQHD.

But for the advanced build I would recommend getting a GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, the cost of which in September is 40-47 thousand rubles. Our testing shows that this model is faster 5700 Radeon RX XT in an average of 11% focus solution advanced build full — SIZED. You see, the advantage of one accelerator over the others is minimal, but the difference in price between discussing adapters significant. And yet I believe that within the advanced Assembly, it is already possible to pay for the use of technologies that are just beginning their pace. You’re waiting for Cyberpunk 2077? I am a very!

And a few days out of Control, created by the famous Studio Remedy, gave us 3D the Saga about a detective max Payne. My colleague Denis Shchennikov argues that the Control looks just fine — including by supporting the functions of DXR. GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, by the way, calmly pulls the “rays” in this game in Full HD resolution using the maximum quality graphics and without the inclusion of DLSS. As you can see, the collection is “irradiated” games significantly updated.

On our website in August released a review of the graphics card MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming SUPER X Trio. After reading it, you can get acquainted with the real performance level of this model. In General, my colleague, Sergei Lepilova the device very much — so much that the adapter was awarded “3DNews recommends”. Model Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming OC review which just came out in August, too, we liked. Yes, the advantages of the new NVIDIA cards are also in the fact that the sale is already a decent number of different versions — as they say, on any color and taste. But preference 5700 Radeon RX XT appear with a noticeable delay, and it is somewhat sad.

If you suddenly have a different opinion, then please don’t write angry comments on this. Fortunately, we have a worthy alternative — a Radeon RX XT 5700. In the table, by the way, is specified monitored by PWM model from SAPPHIRE. Advanced Assembly is the system that would see more high-quality equipment.

The processors in the advanced Assembly is not changed, but in both cases there is price increase. So, Core i7-9700 and 7 3700X Ryzen in “Regarde” slipped from 2 500 rubles subject to rounding. What is it? Autumn aggravation associated with the purchase of computers “to study”? You can, of course, to save money. In the case of the LGA1151 platform-v2, you can take the model Core i7-9700F, in which disabled graphics core. The savings in this case will be small by the standards of advanced Assembly 1500. The same (25 000 rubles) stands 6-core Core i7-8700.

Instead Ryzen 7 3700X at the unwillingness to pay 26 500 rubles and begs the former leader, namely Ryzen 7 2700X (18 500 rubles), but to make such a purchase, I strongly recommend it. So, in review of GIGABYTE AORUS PRO X570 I compared the system with chips Ryzen Ryzen 3600X 5 and 7 2700X. Without overclocking the Assembly with the 6-core is noticeably better in games and some demanding applications, these chips demonstrate similar results.

It is obvious that a PC with a Core i7-9700 on Board in games will be faster system unit with Ryzen 7 3700X under other equal components. However, we will soon see — a detailed analysis of an advanced build is already being prepared.

I think you noticed that at the base, optimum and advanced assemblies recommended power supply 600 watts. At the moment before you is perhaps the perfect “recipe”. Recently on our website published an article “What kind of power supply necessary modern gaming PC”, from which we found that even overclocked Core i9-9900K and GeForce Ti RTX 2080, along with the rest of the iron peak consume no more than 650 watts. It is obvious that less powerful PC “eat” and less. However, the article is clearly shown and proven, why in any game system is better to have a power supply with a good power supply. And good quality, because the “correct” BP will survive, not one upgrade, and therefore will help in the future good save.

Quite a long time in the “Computer of the month” it is recommended that only one drive — the SSD as the main storage device on which you will install Windows and main programs, including the most frequently run games. To this decision, I have come quite a long time, but the organization of space in a PC is a purely individual matter. Now advise the Assembly of some terabyte HDD in addition to SSD — so, it one is simply not needed, and the other from the previous system remained “a bunch” of hard drives. The third little one terabyte, and the fourth and three!

So, dear readers, decide for yourself what drives your future PC. In August on our website, incidentally, was the test hard disk 14-16 TB. Sure, among the readers 3DNews there are users who are interested in these new items.

Maximum Assembly

Such systems are able in most cases to run a particular game at the maximum graphics quality settings in Full HD and WQHD. In 4K resolution, GeForce RTX 2080 (SUPER) “pulls” AAA projects on high graphic settings.

It’s time to max the build to use a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. Last month this card was somewhat thrown off in price. If the usual version GeForce RTX 2080 is from 51 to 69 thousand rubles for the modification with the prefix SUPER please 56-68 thousand rubles. This new product is faster “simple” GeForce RTX 2080 an average of only 5 %. At the same time, GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER only 10-13 % ahead of the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, but it is worth while for 15-17 thousand more. Alas, nothing to do, the rule “the higher the performance, the more expensive every FPS produced” working for a long time and regularly. Plus, unlike the younger members of the 20-th family, the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER will not let you down in future games with heavy effects of DXR.

Based on the foregoing, I once again stating the fact that GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER it makes sense to take, if you play mostly in Ultra HD. For GAMING and (especially) Full HD, in my opinion, would be sufficient and GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER.

Radeon Pro VII is time to forget. Our tests show that the flagship AMD is inferior to the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER an average of 15 %. Yes, this video cards and 16 GB HBM memory, but that’s in games where not enough 8 GB of VRAM, the GPU is already insolvent of “Radeon”. Besides Radeon VII — very hot and noisy graphics card.

If for GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER I still suggest to pay 5,000 rubles, instead of taking Ryzen 7 3700X older model Ryzen 7 3800X over 33 000 makes no sense. The reasons for this choice I have already described when we discussed the optimal build.

Although in the first part of the article it says that solutions based on chipsets B450 and X470 perfect for the three series of processors Ryzen, but the maximum build use a modern card based on the chipset X570. According to my colleague Ilya Gavrichenkov, with the emergence of this chipset equipment AM4 platform can now be the envy of many LGA1151-v2-Board upper price range.

So, our website has published a review of Gigabyte Aorus X570 Xtreme cost $ 700. Card provides a stunning appearance, it is equipped with an effective cooling of the Converter power, which has as many as 16 phases. Of course, Gigabyte Aorus X570 Xtreme has a great integrated sound system and 10-Gigabit network controller with support for Wi-Fi 6. And the Board has USB ports 3.2 and PCI Express 4.0. I agree that for the vast majority of users the functionality offered by Gigabyte Aorus X570 Xtreme, redundant. But the very appearance of such “monsters” is a clear indication that the platform AM4 and chips Ryzen 3000 have become a trendsetters in the computer segment of High-end iron. As you can see, Intel is relegated to the background.

Given the fact that later you replace an 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X on 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X, to save on the mother Board it is impossible in any case!

Extreme build

The system is relevant to modern games in Ultra HD, using the maximum graphics quality settings.

Extreme build
Processor AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 12 cores and 24 threads, 3,8 (4,6) GHz, 64 MB L3, OEM 50 000 rubles.

If the maximum build you can recommend for gaming in Ultra HD is only a stretch, it is an extreme configuration, in my opinion, just want to treat yourself to a modern 3D blockbusters in 4K resolution. And because the system uses the fastest chip gaming graphics card — GeForce Ti RTX 2080, September 19, which will be exactly a year. As you can see, AMD was unable to produce a worthy competitor of “green” flagship.

But “red” had a decent response Core i9-9900K in the face of Ryzen 9 3900X. The processor is finally in the “Regarde” at the price of 50 000 rubles for the BOX version. Even in the review… you Know, and let this time practically nothing to tell you about the updated extreme build. Some detail about it I wrote in the July and August editions. Very soon our website will be a special issue of “Computer of the month” in which extreme Assembly will be discussed, and a system with Core i9-9900K and Ryzen 9 3900X will be tested in a large number of modern games.
