Hi All!
Recently I bought Dell Inspiron AMD Ryzen 7 2700x Eight Core. I am going to work in AutoCad however desktop seems to be a little bit slow also in AutoCad and things like youtube. I need some review should I return it and get somehing new? What do you think? Thanks a lot!

Need the complete make/model of your Dell. Need the actual title of software (CAD program) you're using.

I can tell you that I have two personal systems; a ryzen 1700X overclocked to 3.9gig and an intel 7600k overclocked to 4.5gig. On any multicore benchmark, the ryzen system blows the intel out of the water. Literally doubling the cinebench cpu score.

My guess [and it is only a guess] is that a dell is slow because of all of the bloatware installed on a dell/hp system.
How much ram do you have AND what speed is the ram?
Have you done any benchmarks and if so what were the scores?

That really does not say much. 16gig of ram is fine IF it is high speed ram. Next no ssd??? That alone is going to cause slow boots, slow programs loading.
Run the cinebench cpu test [not the video test] Post the score here. As an example my older 1700X will score 1650 or so on cinebench.
Note cinebench is a free download.

Also extra antivirus software(Avast, Norton, McAfee, etc) can slow a Win10 pc down. Removing it may help a little bit.

Well, for that price I would recommend an intel/nvidia pc, but that is biased information.

Run it when you get home, and see if crjdriver can help you out more. They seem to know a lot about amd.

It really depends on what you want the system to do. It would appear from your first post that you want it to do AUTOCAD however if that is not the case ie you want it for gaming, then say so.
I am NOT a fan of dell computers for gaming or any stressful endeavor. We must have at least 3000 dells at work and they do a fine job for basic tasks; ie office work, weather briefings, recurrent training, etc, etc. I would never think of attempting to use one for gaming or any other stressful task.

From what I see, two reasons the system seems slow; no ssd and having mcafee installed.
I would really really get rid of mcafee and go with the built in windows defender. If you have to go with a third party AV, then probably avast or avira.

Thank you for answer. I need computer only for AutoCad, not for gaming at all. Best to all! Later I will post cnbench report. Thanks!

That system should be fine for running autocad with the addition of a ssd in place of the mech drive [and getting rid of mcafee]
Up to you IF you want to return the system however I would really go with a ssd over the mech drive for the system drive.
