    I just hope the price of the 3900X somehow falls on it's arse so i can claim price protection and get some cash back now that the 3950 is here!

    Most reviewers are still running at 3200C14, effectively underclocking fclk. I reckon with some 3600-3733 and a bit of memory tweaking that gap would close to almost make the difference negligible either way. Considering a 16GB kit of Micron rev. e can be had for $99 these days and these are enthusiast cpu's, as much as reviewers love to tout that they're only for workstation tasks.

    I'm pretty happy to see that both dies seem to be binned this time, unlike the 3900X.

    I think this was the main reason for the delay. I expect thats how the 3900x fills in. 3950x with one die not bin standard, becomes a 3900x. Supply of the 3900x has been pretty tight. I imagine with the 3950x now top dog and supply leveling out, it will become more common, also AMD is expected to release a 3900 non x with slower clocks. Yields seem pretty good, so I think AMD will sell everything they will produce.

    I will probably go with a 3900 or 3950 non X for my ITX box. I have one machine with a 3700x which is plenty fast, so something with many cores for media encoding and rendering would be a great second machine.

    They aren't really workstation CPU's.
    Hopefully AMD does a Pro series, and companies like Dell and HP make a line of ECC memory workstations based around the 12 and 16 core versions of these CPU's. They would be hot sellers. Plenty of companies would love to jump into a lower cost same performance workstation format, with physically smaller computers. The PCIE 4 would also be a real selling point there. Applications where SSD's are basically used like additional RAM, will see a huge improvement. You can also drop easily 128GB of ram into one of these boxes and then have 2TB of PCIE 4.0. Plenty of workflows could use something like that backed by 16 cores 32 threads.

    may sell my 3900X and go for 3950x

    I guess its like people putting a V16 in a mini and cruising around at 30kph

    But that will be next you as it will be hard to get

    Dear Lisa,

    I have no need for 16/32 chips, however can I please have one of those 4.7GHz ccx's in my 8/16 cpu of choice?

    Many thanks.

    You only say that because she promised them to you while giving you a reach around when she pegged you.

    Anyone else got a render time for Gooseberry on a 3900X? Linus is clocking it at 13 minutes in his 3950X review, and I do closer to 20. Google isn’t really showing too much/anything up.

    My gut is they meant Blender Open Benchmark, but I’d like to be sure my chip isn’t being stupid.

    You're right about gaming, unless someone is using a 240hz monitor and a 2080ti competitively, I don't see the need for a 9000x cpu. I've never known anyone who uses such a configuration. However I do know more people than i can count use their computers mainly for work. The 3950x however brings cutting edge desktop work performance. I will be happy with my 3800x for a while.

    I am definitely going to get a 3950x. Only decsion for me at this point is do I;

    a) Sell the 3900x and keep the 2700x in my second system
    b) put it in my second system and sell my 2700x
    c) Sell/trade my 3900x for a 3700x/3800x/3600x and sell my 2700x
    d) Sell my second system and the 3900x (this would the SWMBO preferred option and possibly the sensible one)

    1st world problems really though in reality I am leaning towards a or c

    I just ordered pump block and fittings so will swap out the H150i for a custom loop with a 360mm*40mm Rad and looking forward putting that together as well.

    I am really enjoying the Lian Li 011 case - it has a small footprint for the amount of usable internal space, is easy to work in and seems to have very good airflow.

    Lots to consider and think about between now and the 25-11-19 :)
