3950X or 3970X?


Recommended Posts

So, the 3970X may be OTT but as i’m in a position to buy either, i’m wondering if, from a trading perspective, would a 3970X with 32 cores be better than the 3950X with 16 cores. The latter supported by 64GB, and the former 128GB, both 3200 RAM. They’ll also have a PCIe 4.0 SSD. 
 

I’m looking at the AMD’s as they are cheaper and perform better on multi-cores compared to Intel equivalents. As mentioned, price is nay bother but i’m wondering if trading would utilise all 32 cores with multiple charts and other trading software running simultaneously. 
 

Any experience, thoughts be appreciated.

The only 2 constricting factors I have seen for trading purposes is memory and internet connection speed/reliability. Using multiple screens and having a lot charts open at once, and having a lot indicators running on each open chart eats into available memory but even the 64GB should be able to handle more than your eyes ever could 🙂

    • Natural Gas remains 'the monster of the monsters', it requires no leverage and a lot of patience: lately formed a triple bottom, likely to test a previous support at 6400 and higher, it is a challenge for for those preferring CFD trading, especially for professionals trading high leverage! Otherwise can double, triple or more the equity and wipe out the account as well in a short period of time. It has no limits or previous time to count on, on any chart available! During the good days CAN tumble or spike up 7 -8% in a matter of seconds! IG remains the best for challenging the Natural Gas financial instrument!
    • It’s been a rocky start to the year for Bitcoin, but experts still say it will hit $100,000 — and that it’s more a matter of when, not if. Bitcoin on Thursday dipped below $20,000, falling down nearly 5% over the last 24 hours. This is the second time the largest crypto has fallen below $20,000 this month and it still remains under pressure, according to Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA. “Bitcoin is struggling to hold onto the $20,000 level,” he says. “If Bitcoin breaks below the recent low around $17,500, there isn’t much support until the $14,500 level.” The latest crypto market crash was spurred by momentary de-risking from Wall Street as many investors are feeling pessimistic about the economy amid surging inflation, a shaky stock market, and rising interest rates. The crypto market has increasingly tracked the stock market in recent months, which makes it even more intertwined with global economic factors.
