As a 3D artist I gotta say I really like this CPU! It is really fast at rendering and got a Cinebench score of 14254! I did enable the Precision Boost Overdrive in the BIOS.
Things you should know is,
make sure you properly cool this CPU, I bought the new Aorus Liquid Cooler 360 and it couldn’t cool down my temperatures at full CPU load of 95c, and resulted in lower Cinebench scores of around 13400-13700.
However, I switched to a Noctua air cooler “NH-U14S TR4-SP3”, and replaced the fan it came with, with a 120mm fan “NF-A12x25” for better RPM. Overall, idle temps and full load were much better! 36c-39c idle, 84c-85c full load and much quieter than the Aorus Liquid cooler 360.
Finally, I am happy with this CPU and it serves me well.
Quick Note: just make sure you know what you are doing if you decide to enable Precision Boost Overdrive. Read and look up information and tutorials. and don’t mess with anything if you don’t know much.
Update on a 5 star review:
Unfortunately, I have to knock down 2 stars because as a 3D artist, Maya user, whenever I try to unfold some pieces of my UV's, I get a "// Error: Unfold3D process error." , which some users have experienced with Ryzen CPU's if you look in the Maya forums the same mesh works with Intel rigs and functions properly. Personally, I never had a problem unfolding UV's with my Intel rig until in Maya 2019-2020, only when I bought my new 3960X, which is a nightmare with UV unfolding because you have to cut the UV's in places that are very undesirable in order to unfold your UV's and then I have to reattach them manually in the right places.
I know Intel's prices for the Intel - Core i9-10980XE 18-core may be high, but if you want to avoid software issues, I would definitely go Intel because recently as 02/24/2020 AMD has had many driver issues with their GPU's and the Ryzen Master App is super buggy, sometimes it loads and sometimes it doesn't and I get an "error hence aborting". Literally, I have to click on the Ryzen Master App sometimes up to 5 times in order to bypass the error to load up the app. AMD's hardware is impressive, but without proper functioning software it will still be behind Intel.
I would not recommend buying this CPU if you are a Maya user, AMD's software is too buggy and unreliable and this is the first and last time I will buy AMD. Sorry AMD, I gave you a chance and you failed me big time, I trusted you and these type of issues are not acceptable. Maya is an industry standard, and AMD should've invested more time into these types of issues because you cannot render your mesh without UV unwrapping and texturing it first, so fast renders don't mean a thing if my Ryzen CPU has issues UV unfolding my UV's. UV unfolding was such a headache because it made a simple thing into a nightmare.
