Hard to believe it’s been almost four months since AMD announced the AMD Ryzen 3000 series. In that time, this platform has undergone quiet a few changes, all for the better I might add. All of the firmware updates from AMD and motherboard vendor side have improved mainly in increased compatibility and adding high speed DRAM support. As it stands, the Ryzen 7 3800X is a better CPU today than it was at launch. What follows is what you may expect out of a Ryzen 7 3800X in everyday use, gaming and in productivity right now.

ASRock X570 Taichi OC Review

WEB: ASRock MSRP: US $299.99 | AUTHOR: Neo

Here we are with the ASRock X570 Taichi, just over a full month after the launch of AMD’s 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs and the matching X570 chipset. Truth be told, it definitely feels like it’s been much longer than a month. As we’ve come to expect with AMD platform launches, plenty of updates coming in fast. Each successive update bringing stability and compatibility improvements. This latest entry in the ASRock X570 Taichi is easily my favorite X570 motherboard thus far. As such, we decided this would be a great candidate for an OC review.
