Only Z490 with LGA2000 ?
If someone buys a not-overclockable 10th gen CPU he still has no choice but to buy a Z490 board (expensive). That does not make sense.

The socket is LGA 1200, just to correct that for you. Also the high-end boards Z (series) in this case Z490 are always the first ones to drop. Once there is enough of them on the market (including processors) they will release the non-OC motherboards and business boards for users that don't want fully spec'ed out motherboards. Next to come is H470, B460 & H410. Don't forget everything is delayed due to COV19.

I don't disagree. However, I always found that Intel systems feel snappier than AMD. I'm talking about responsiveness when an input is generated. That's why this time I'll switch to Intel.

From what I'm getting at, you seem to want a responsive CPU which is often tied to single threaded performance...but you're looking at a 10400 and that's not very good even at single core performance. The Intel CPUs higher up in the SKU particularly the 10900K will beat all the Ryzens there, the others are close although overclocking helps them out a lot. The 10400...can't do that and its clock speeds are slow too, I suspect you'll get better single core performance out of a Ryzen 3 3300X let alone the default choice of the 3600. Intel's dominance of single core performance was erased due to Zen 2, that's why AMD's Zen 2 processors are now the default choice for any DIY PC builder. If you want a snappy Intel CPU for this generation you can't go cheap.Desperadude wrote: ↑ I don't disagree. However, I always found that Intel systems feel snappier than AMD.

BTW, the intel boards with B and H chipsets are already listed on Canadacomputers web site if anyone is interested
