PC Build of the week – CREATE MORPHEUS Ryzen 5950X & RTX 3070 (Game Development)

We were pleased to be chosen to supply another PC to Pumpkin Games in Birmingham, Paul knew what he wanted in terms of specs and chose CREATE PCs based on our great reviews and quality of builds seen in photos.

It’s nice to see a Ryzen 9 processor coming through, especially the 5950X, the majority of our builds have been ‘team blue’ recently, but there is a clear difference when you have 16-cores all with the same performance as with this 5950X. It is perfectly suited to development work as a workstation and as a gaming rig when needed.

The graphics card selected is the RTX 3070, which represents great value for money in the current 30-series line-up from NVIDIA, and for a game developer, a graphics card is only one piece of the puzzle, as the CPU, Memory and Storage all make the difference when it comes to rendering.

A dedicated 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD storage device was chosen for the Windows 11 install and will be used by Paul for his software programs, this ensures full independence of hardware, so with the additional 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD there is more than enough storage to get started. What normally happens in this case is working files/documents exist on the 2TB temporarily and then can be offloaded to an internal HDD of larger capacity, or an external NAS device is also a great option for those files no longer needed to be read or written to at maximum performance.
