I figured I'd see the usual BAPC suspects reposted here.

The 2600X, what I'm replying to you on, is a good beast and at $199 you're getting decent value.

I'm almost tempted to go threadripper 2920X instead of 3800X, but I do want PCIe 4.0 and better support for high speed memory.

Tough choice, Zen+ is pretty decent, but would be much easier (motherboard availability) and cheaper to build. On the other hand Zen2 is days away, could be overhyped or if rumors and early benchmarks are to be believed could give you a significant increase in performance, especially IPC improvement which drives performance for many applications and games.

I suspect there will be more deals on Zen+ stuff as they probably have a bunch of stock.

Here's my challenge, if I get my 64GB of DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 shipped to me, I can barter it for a 3900X plus cash and still keep my pricing reasonable. A 3900X might be a better value proposition than a 2920X all-considered.

Wonder if we'll see Intel drop their prices soon....

Edit: Save $40 on the i9-9900k? Come on Intel......you can do better than that.

Ok... I need a bench for the 2920X vs 3900X. $549 at CC is pretty solid, especially if you find a cheap TR board.

Are the new 3000x processors compatible with x470 motherboards?

Yes, probably with a firmware update.

Cheapest X399 board is $369. $140 more than the X570 MSI Gaming Plus board I preordered.

Yeah, I'll probably stick with Ryzen 3000 series chips, even if the 3900X is $150 more than the 2920X. Better that than lose the USB 3.1 gen 2 and PCIe 4.0 and better optimizations... and better high speed memory support.

I'd suggest waiting to buy until after the Zen 2 reviews are out. The new chips should overclock very well so if you're into overclocking, it'll be significantly faster than the Ryzen 2000. The Ryzen 2000 tends to top out at 4GHz but the Ryzen 3000 are gonna clock higher than 4GHz.

Intel is betting on the fact many people will look at Intel and AMD then decide "better to be safe" and pay the Intel premium. People are coming around, but, it will take awhile for the word to get out. Plus AMD will have to deliver on all these leaked benchmarks. And what's just as important, or perhaps even more so to the majority, is stability. They want it to just work and work fast. Intel has been driving home this message for quite some time - remember "Intel Inside"?

Yes, we remember 1997. When Intel was king and British Hong Kong was a timeless example of individual liberty and western capitalism.

Both concepts have since been shattered.

When the conservative corporates start moving towards AMD, Intel will see red.

Mainstream don't know what AMD is so it is a safe bet.
