Thoughts on 7950X3D architecture for recording/streaming? (versus 7950X)


New Member
The new 7950X3D has 16 cores and 32 threads, just like the 7950X. However, during games half the cores are “parked”, as the reviewers say. Will this negatively impact tasks like recording and streaming (or both at the same time)? Is the 7950X a better choice for gaming content creation?

It doesn't use the cores because it doesn't need it, if you are using nvenc, like most people the gpu will take the load, if you want to use oldskool software h264 rendering, you can and I can confirm all cores will be used on the 7950x
