Presuming you're talking about AVX-512, Zen 4 is roughly at parity with Intel client CPUs (per clock) that have AVX-512. However you split the instructions up, the FP execution resource is comparable to AVX2, but AVX-512 still offers a perf boost from other things added with it. Actually AMD has a slight advantage as Intel went all out with FMA units, AMD added some extra FADDs which may help with some workloads.one thing i am still trying to wrap my head around, is why is 512bit instructions done as 256x2. i think they talked bout this on NG, seems in single core test in cinebench it was behind intel. yet when it was in mutli core it smashed it, so how does that = faster in multi core at 256x2. different way to do the same thing, they got what they were after really. they smashed intel pretty well in multi core benchmarks and some about even with intel.
well vs my I9-7900x which atm is only doing 4.6ghz in the summer heat.yea the 7600x is steal for that kind of performance!
I grabbed [FURY Beast 32GB DDR5 RGB 6000MHz CL36 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 16GB)] Bart will probably say I could have got better mem lol.. but this was available for under 300$ CAD (208USD$)
Bart are you seeing 6000 on AMD being a "Sweet Spot" like AMD has been advertising? or is that just a bunch of smoke and higher is still much better in your testing.I reviewed the Fury Beast 6000 CL36 some weeks ago. It's a pretty good kit, and you can expect it will OC high. It's based on the same Hynix IC as 6400-6600 CL32 kits but is a bit worse binned (or it was my luck). I could make 6800-6933 on my kit, while the best and much more expensive 6400-6600 kits made 7000 (7000 is a motherboard limit so far).

6600 CL30 is possible too. For both, it will need ~1.5V, so it will probably overheat without a direct fan. Up to 1.40-1.45V, it will be fine and will still make 6800+ but at CL34/36.
I have the 7950X as I need something high for reviews. For daily/gaming PC, I would get 7600X. Right now, I'm waiting for motherboards. Hopefully, some review samples as everything I like costs a lot, like way too much to be reasonable.

Also I hear you on Costing way to much I definitly settled on some things but in a way that I didn't feel I'm Crippling my potential performance too much mostly features, The Jump in motherboard prices seem a bit gouging board to board like 200+$ more going to the Taichi for example. Asus - GB - MSI having 800-1000+$ mobo's being the average higher end board price is really getting out of touch a bit Those prices used to be reserved for the Over the top halo products.
"~1.5V, so it will probably overheat without a direct fan" well what if a fan is directly over your memory .. like jankly style? lol
It's half online. You order and pay online, then drive to the store to pick it up.Grrrrr. It's supremely lame that Microcenter doesn't do online deals like this. Closest one is 140 miles away for me.
Just as well. Saves me from spending on parts I don't *need*.
