New Year, New Weather January 2020 Installed Capacity Trends and Recommendations


New year, new weather, price unchanged

Toothpaste still squeezed out, five or six out of XT

It's a new year and prices in installed machine market have also undergone some changes, but overall price situation is still relatively stable. Last December, various media also introduced next generation of Intel desktops. Some bits and pieces of information about processor. On X299 I9-10980XE flagship platform, toothpaste factory was also beaten by third-generation Su Ma 3960X and 3970X thread breaker. AMD has released a new graphics card RX5500XT based on Double Twelve platform. The competition in market is relatively average, but there is plenty of room for price cuts in later period of Map A. Judging by information, it is worth looking forward to.

General hardware changes in December:

CPU: Scattered Intel chips have slight gains and box is stable/AMD price cuts on new and old Ryzen

Memory: there are ups and downs and price will rise in future

Hard drive: Mechanical hard drive is basically stable, with little increase/solid state hard drive is basically stable

Video card: overall slight drop

And here are some tips for some friends who want to install:

Question 1. I want to build a computer to play online games like LOL and Overwatch. What processor should I use?

Answer 1: For most people, two G5400/200GE processors are not ordinary online games that cannot be played. Graphics cards higher than GTX1050/RX560D are recommended.

Question 2: I want to build a computer to play medium to large 3D games such as GTA5, Chicken Eater, Battlefield 5, APEX, etc. Which processor should I use?

Answer 2. If it's a large-scale 3D game with a small budget, I3-9100F or higher products are recommended. In Battlefield series, priority is given to quad-core processors. The I5-9400F level basically kills it. Deliberately chasing I7 / R7 is essentially a waste of performance. It's better to add money to video card.

In graphics card market, super-series of N cards is equivalent of a price cut in disguise. The high-end A-class cards on sale are very economical, and RX5500XT just launched at thousand yuan level is a little less competitive, but there are many opportunities for price reduction. The main group still prefers 1650super and 1660super. .

Entry-level budget graphics card, only GT1030, RX550, RX560D and other models are available for you for less than 500 yuan. At best, you can play regular 3D games and popular online games. Users on a small budget are advised to directly use built-in main display of CPU, or directly use a used graphics card such as GTX950/960/RX570/580, but these graphics cards are easy to buy for mining. .

The GTX1650super can be classified as a 1000 yuan mid-range market, which is slightly above previous generation 1060 and very close to GTX 1660. The AMD RX590 is essentially official overclocked version of full-blooded 580. My personal suggestion: to add money to 5500XT or save money. GTX1650s.

About 2000 Yuan N card is naturally still an RTX2060, and AMD RX5700 is mostly priced in 2099-2599 range. The performance is closer to RTX2060super, and performance cost is relatively high.

In 2600~3500 region, you can consider RTX2060 super performance close to 2070 and increase memory to 8GB. For card A, you can choose RX5700XT. Base performance is slightly better than RTX2070 and overclocking is stronger.

Comments: The 4GHz six-core processor (after turbo) impresses with both multitasking and single-threaded performance. With GTX1660super graphics card, it should become most popular 3A large-scale gaming platform in price range. of 4000. In this respect, U board package uses MSI Mortar series with relatively good sales and word of mouth, strong expansion capability, and slightly better than other flagship motherboards.

Comments: We did a relatively big upgrade this month, replacing 9600KF CPU with a Z390 motherboard. -9400F., it is recommended to dissipate more than four copper pipes for heat dissipation. As for discrete graphics card, you can use Maxsun 2060super graphics card, which is relatively economical. Sometimes there are magic cars that are very cheap, with relatively good performance, and complete backplanes, lamps, and fans. As for future configuration upgrades, it can be upgraded to I9=9900K, maximum memory can be upgraded to 16GB*4, independent graphics card can be upgraded to about RTX2070super (depending on current power level), and a mechanical hard drive can be installed to increase Memory.

[Last Reminders]

1. The configuration provided in this article can be considered as a basic structure and not as an absolute standard. You can change brand of platform, graphics card and other accessories according to your preferences, as long as power supply is sufficient.

2. About power supply: if you think power supply grade I listed is too low or not good, you can buy a higher-end model or brand by yourself.

3. Regarding graphics card: As long as power is enough and banknotes are enough, you can use any graphics card you want, GT610-RTX2080TI 9-segment is ok, if you have money, you will be done.

4. Please contact your dealer for compatibility, but motherboard does not support Intel motherboards from two major manufacturers. Be reliable but not stupid, work hard to create miracles.

5. The combination of chassis is as good as you like, not to say that you can use only this one, you can buy one you like, but you need to know if you can stuff your own chassis with your own accessories.

6. If you don't have money, you can use a nuclear display or a used graphics card, just be careful with mining cards.
