Hope to see the prices on the regular 3600 go down now.

Off topic but remember when it was the norm for retailers to bundle motherboards with cpus for ~$300-400?
Those were the days.

Not worth it. I don’t think the regular 3000s prices will go down because of the XT

Why are AMD products at regular price hot deals now?

This seems like a common trend on redflagdeals.

Do not unconsciously do free marketing for AMD. They are no longer the underdog and have been steadily raising their price to parity to the competition. This product launch itself is a lazy even by Intel standards with only a 100mhz increase in boost clocks(not base clocks which is more important). They also removed the cooler from the 3900XT. They are no longer acting like the underdog and their behavior is reflecting this. I feel their guerrilla marketing campaign has programmed it into people that they must post AMD ads when ever they have the chance.

The OP even posted the wrong specs of the 3600x for some reason.

They are not 3.6 base and 4.2 boost. That is the regular 3600 non x which retails for 260 to 270cdn.

The 3600x specs is 3.8 base and 4.4 boost. This is the product the 3600xt is replacing in terms of price. The real specs of the 3600xt is 3.8 base and 4.5 boost so the OP even inflated the 3600xt specs to get sales for AMD.

You are not losing out on much by going by the likely cheaper 3600x. The OP needs to change his post because we don't need to deceive people just so we can get AMD a sale at regular MSRP.

The 3600XT has a lousy 100 MHz boost improvement, same base clock as the 3600X. Hardly worth the premium IMO. That said, users are finding these newest batch of silicon to have slightly better OC thanks to the maturing TSMC 7nm process. But when it comes to the silicon lottery, YMMV. Users on a budget are still better served with the vanilla 3600.

Is this going to help bring down prices of current CPU's?

I've been wanting to build a new PC for months now, but the prices of AMD processors just don't go down. Apparently it's becoming cheaper to build an Intel with similar performance at all.

I doubt it. The XTs will replace the Xs at the same price point, the non-X models will remain where they are. This refresh is basically AMD's way of keeping the marketing fresh in people's minds and perhaps rain on Intel's parade slightly.

The 3600x (so not this xt) is an absolutely glorious cpu,for the price it’s dropped to recently - I got mine around 230 a while back. I think I occasionally see it at 250? That’s probably a better option (if it’s still around) than this xt at this price.

As far as I’ve seen, AMD processors do significantly reduce in price once the next generation comes along (you could get 1s and 2s for crazy prices late last year) buttttttt I don’t think the current “upgrade” (ie, the release of the 3600xt) will shake up prices of the other 3s all that much... I could be wrong, but that’s just based upon what I saw with the 3s releasing.

If you're gaming, just buy a 3600 instead of XT.... Or really, just wait for Zen 3

Can you back this assertion? how do you qualify as them not being the "underdog" anymore? Market share? sales numbers? marketing? RFD posts? feelings?

not a rhetorical q. I am actually interested to know as this is like the 3rd time im reading this.

I don't understand either. These days people are posting newly released products at regular price in the Hot Deals section. People consider it hot because it's newly released and there is stock for it... very confused with this concept.

I agree that 3600XT is not a deal, but performance tests you included are meaningless - who plays these days with 1080p or 720p resolution... Publish at least 1440p or 4K test results to reflect real performance difference.

Are you new to PC gaming?

When it come to testing the capability of a CPU in gaming, the most important test are the low resolution one (a mix of 720P and 1080P is the best mix if tested with 2080ti).

Otherwise the game get bottlenecked by the GPU and the CPU result lose all meaning (you're testing the GPU performance and no longer the CPU).

Welcome to PC gaming!
