Great CPU, very, very powerful for productivity and too powerful for gaming alone. Its drawbacks shown by UserBenchmark are minor non-issues that are shown in order to try to weaken it.

It's complete overkill for the gaming crowd who are better served with faster single-core clocks and a more reasonable number of cores. For those who have computers that do real work, the overkill is something you can now get used to. The ability to run so many CPU intensive tasks at once is incredible - and you can play a game while-you-wait. On the downside, the heat the CPU produces at full load means that your cooling solution needs to be top-of-the-line.

Let me get this straight, the 3950x is NOT a CPU a gamer or a streamer would want. The 3950x is made for video editing, running VMs, servers and even mining. It has the most powerful multi-core performance for a consumer processor. For streamers, the new NVENC encoder on the latest Turing GPUs is able to match CPU x264 quality so having a high core count CPU for streaming is no longer a requirement. With NVENC, you can stream smoothly even with the 6c/6t 9400F. Running two or three programs in the background while gaming is hardly demanding for multi-threaded, multi-core CPU these days. If most of your daily usage consist of gaming and streaming, look elsewhere, such as the 9900k or 9700k where they will give you more headroom for a faster GPU if you happen to upgrade in the future while also being much cheaper. The 3950x also makes lots of sense if you plan to edit and render videos all day long.—Jan '20

most powerful am4 processor 2019 year . 16 core

Offered pretty much what was previously regarded as HEDT grade (16 core 32 thread, huge amount of cache and high clock) at lower prices, is more accessible to high end market and can be slotted to mainstream socket.

highest clocked ryzen cpu. do we really have to buy a 16 core cpu if we want to get the highest clocked ryzen cpu? :(

Workstation grade processing for mainstream pricing. This here is the wet dream of workstation users. Will probably need fast ram and a good cooler (Like a mid-range be Quiet or Noctua air cooler) but boy does it pay off with multithreaded performance.

Beast! Doesn't need a crazy cooler, a mid-price one actually works.

Image editing just jumped by leaps and bounds. With this much ability, I just might see about learning how to edit videos.

Like it or not, but this is the best CPU so far. It has perfect all-round performance and for those who want future proof...next 5 to 10 years the regular consumer or even prosumer will be just fine or better. 4 years ago 4 cores were super and 8 cores were "You don't need it, nothing will use their capabilities". Right now the same story, but 8 cores to 16 cores. Even Intel's flagship 10900K is 10 cores already. Hugely recommendation to everybody, who hasn't decided yet. Gaming is flawless with 2080 Super and on 4K res everything is silky smooth. It just works great with everything.
