    The 3800x/3900x/3950x have 8/12/16 cores respectively. The price difference from 3800 to 3900 is $178. The difference from 3900 to 3950 is $505. If there is no different architecture between them, are there other reasons why it's such a big jump?

    I was very close on pre-ordering 10th Gen Intel, but glad I waited a week for some results.

    Picking up 3700x + Mobo + Ram today. Excited to get back into it all. Its been a VERY VERY long time since my last AMD PC.

    I will still play with gen10 intel, but seriously tempted to pickup a 3900x we well (its completely not needed by want to play with it)

    literally just got an R5 2600 / B450 STRIX ITX Combo 2nd hand off here for the MRS, to upgrade her ageing i3 6100/z170 itx combo, im sure she could benefit having the 3900x over the 2600, for her word docs/excel spreedsheets + GTA5/Overwatch!

    my last two AMD pc's were Ryzen 1800X ( was a heap of shit compared to my X99/X299 systems)
    and before that, was AMD x2 6400 Black Edition, this was a beast back in its day!

    Ha ha considering gtav is very single threaded she will get a good boost with the 3900x!

    Because AMD can. Intel can't field a 16 core consumer cpu in the power envelope that AMD can.

    id love to see intel on 7nm, vs amd's current 7nm, by that time wont be able to compare them likley.

    intel when they finally go 7nm, prob be DDR5 or even DDR6

    Just remember that keeping the frequencies high is an issue at the smaller sized processes. Even Intel has issues with higher speeds on 10nm.
    DDR5 will be rolled out for both the Intel and AMD server platforms in 2021. Consumer platforms will presumably follow in 2022. There might be scope for super-premium consumer boards late 2021 fielding DDR5 on new sockets. DDR6 is a long long way away - not even Intel is that slow on sub 14nm processes :)

    Like I said before, its been a long time since the folks at AMD have had the trophy in their club room. They can charge whatever the market will bear on their top tier desktop processor, just like intel has done all these years

    yeah but...if it was my company..and it isn't (probably for the best :)) i would be looking at these results and think to myself...wanna screw with them... yeah could be fun....and plummet the 3950x to 1k australian...directly in line with the 10900k ftw qf or whatever its name is today :) ...sit back in my big comfy chair...with a cigar....and watch them squirrel around :) if nothing else it would be entertaining at best it would definately make people think twice...hell i wouldn't even think i would be all over it :p

    This would be epic. And I reckon more than likely will happen.

    im already tempted to get a 3900x for the mrs and upgrade the r5 2600 (which she has had for one day, going from an i3 6100, the r5 is so so much faster haha)

    If 3950X were to drop to a 1k, i think id buy one, drop the 3950x in, and take the b450 strix itx and 3950x into my rig, and give the mrs the 8086k! and not bother playing with intel gen10 at all!

    I'm hanging on until Sept. to see what gives with Zen 3. It will be my last upgrade for at least a couple of years. I'm not necessarily going to jump onto Zen 3... I won't know until then. I think there could be a very nice sweet spot, price wise, right around the 3900X/3950X region which will need to be seriously considered before I spend any money.

    Or.. should I keep my 3600 and grab Big Navi instead, which is also going to be released in Sept ?

    Realistically I'd get more use out of the CPU than the GPU. Trying to hold back on 'Why not have both?':lol:

    So was going to upgrade to the 10900k, but i was a bit hohum about it relative to my 9900KS. The only real benefit i could see was the extra cores - so i figured if i wanted extra cores, i'd try AMD.

    So i built a second system with a 3900x - my first AMD since my old Athlon XP. Feels interesting to have an AMD system after so many years :thumbup:.

    Have spent the evening setting up, tinkering and overclocking. Pretty happy with it, but the overclocking is a lot more complicated than on the Intel side that's for sure!
