I’m quite satisfied with performance of my current workstation. [44-thread Broadwell] paired with 64Gb of RAM, fast NVME and [24Gb EVGA 3090Ti] shape solid desktop tool. However i’m planning distant upgrade to achieve maximum speed in Windows 7 environment. Just to mark checkbox that it is possible. In 2021 i already tried out modern platform based [around x570 in conjunction with Ryzen 5950X] . System worked without any problems, thanks to modern [CanonKong Windows 7 drivers] .
As you may know X670 chipset is already supported by means of [CanonKong’s driver] . [Ryzen 7950X] is confirmed to work with Windows 7. Ryzen 8000 reported to use the same AM5 socket as Ryzen 7000. CanonKong [confirmed above mentioned statement] with his own commentary: I think I will maintain driver pack for modern amd chips until out of my ability. Ryzen 8000 still can work on Win7. So we can safely announce that Ryzen 8000-series will work without any problems.
I think that you already know that you are the reader of very weird blog. So here is another unusual comparison to prove above mentioned statement. Operating system: Windows 7 x64 SP2+ ESU CPUs: Ryzen 9 5950X 16c/32t [Zen 3] and Intel Xeon E5-2696v4 22c/44t [Broadwell] Audio card: ESI Maya 4 EX PCIe Software: Renoise 3.4.2 Settings: ASIO/48Khz/~5ms CPU overload protection: 98% Benchmark file was created by [Cactoos] of Renoise community.
Well known Chinese driver modder [Canonkong] confirmed that [64-cores/128-threads Threadripper 3995WX] based upon sWRX8 chipset works flawlessly in Windows 7 environment. Considering the news it looks like that more recent [5995WX] will also work without any issues. So, we have plenty of headroom in terms of system performance. As for me, i have no need to switch to “recent operating systems” like Windows 10/11. Here is brief [confirmation] from the WinRaid forum:
Back in the 2017 Amd [broke intel’s rule of low core count CPUs] and now they are delivering large enterprise-level cache to consumer products.
Some already confirmed facts about 5800x3D:
¶ PREFACE NOTE Finally i have won the battle with my laziness and forced myself to complete this so looooooooongish project. Enjoy! PS: 3DMark 03, 3DMark 05, 3DMark 06, 3DMark Vantage , 3DMark 2011 and 3DMark 2021 are not marked by ▒ sign, showing the fact that these programs lost the soul of demoscene and just providing comparison numbers, nothing else. █ COMPUTER CONFIGURATIONS CPUs: Threadripper 1 1950X / Ryzen 9 5950X / Ryzen 3 3100 GPUs: Radeon VII 16Gb / Radeon 6900XT 16Gb GFX SETTINGS: 2560x1600 32Bit color [where possible], ULTRA+ settings, Anti-aliasing is turned OFF COMPUTER TESTBEDS:  ► Threadripper 1950X / Asrock Taichi X399M / 64Gb DDR4 2667@2800Mhz / Radeon VII 16Gb  ► Threadripper 1950X / Asrock Taichi X399M / 64Gb DDR4 2667@2800Mhz / Radeon 6900XT 16Gb  ► Ryzen 3 3100 @3.
It’s been a while since I’ve published something related to benchmarking. So here we go then: a quick Aida64 post in which you can observe results of little RAM overclock and how it is influence overall computer performance. I’ve come to conclusion that table representation will be more transparent rather than screenshots of the benchmark software. ► HARDWARE CONFIGURATIONS BENCHMARK TOOL: Aida64 v6.33.5700  MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra [Bios: F34] LOW-END PROFILE: Ryzen 3 3100 4-Core HI-END PROFILE: Ryzen 9 9590X 16-Core
UPDATED ON: 2022-05-17 Added latest AIDA64 FPU benchmark to show supremacy over 12900K UPDATED ON: 2022-05-04 This is the most powerful configuration, which runs Windows 7 without any issues or side effects. Threadripper 3XXX is possible, but micro freezes and stuttering are present, so it is not a viable option for smooth experience. UPDATED ON: 2021-08-19 Added some benchmarks for more clearness. Internet is swarming with [amateurish articles about “incompatibility”] of modern hardware with legacy Windows 7 operating system.
