    Hmm, but Threadripper 2950X is only 180W TDP, 4.4GHz, 16c/32t. and hopefully R7/R9 3000 TDP will be bit lower cos 7nm.

    2950X is 3.5/4.4 at 180W

    phiho is right
    a 3850 at 4.0/4.8 (5.0?) at 130W (?)
    cant/wont happen
    a 4.0/4.8 3850 would have to run 180W or clocks cut right back to 3.5/4.3 to stay inside the 130W profile

    that's still a metric fuck ton of desktop compute power whatever AMD go with

    Just saying read reviews of power output of the 16 core cpu. 2950x is a 3.5/4.4 ghz cpu. If your happy with clock speeds at that level, no probs.

    Don't think you will have a 5ghz base clock on 16 cores, with any old air cooler and any old mono

    For most people the high clocks will be more attractive. Gaming performance over cinebench performance.

    I'm gonna upgrade my current build:

    CPU: i5 4690 -> Ryzen 7 3700X
    HSF: Corsair H100i -> ???
    M/B: MSI Z97I Gaming AC -> (Asus) X570 (when we know whats available)
    RAM: 16gb DDR3 -> G.Skill TridentZ 32GB (4x8gb) DDR4 3200
    GPU: MSI 970GTX -> Asus ROG-STRIX-RTX2070-O8G-GAMING
    SSD: 512gb Samsung 860 Evo -> 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2
    Case: NZXT H700i
    PSU: 750W Corsair TX750M

    I have the case / PSU already, the rest I'll pick up in Taiwan as it's dirt cheap there.

    For example that SD is $329 in AUD, in Taiwan it's $287.

    Cool, should be great for games with RTX2070..
    I went to Singapore few times in past 2 years and noticed that PC parts prices are almost identical to Australia. But unfortunately you don't have MSY in Singapore. :)

    Current 1700 owner here, looking forward to these very much. Probably go with a 3700X

    How many of you are planning a similar upgrade, but keeping your current AM4 mobo? Other than PCIe 4.0 are we going to miss much from the 500 series chipset?

    I have a 2k monitor so gaming at 1440p on 970 is hard now. Destiny 2 I get 60fps on high settings but anthem I get 40fps and with the last couple of updates it’s dropped to 30fps with dips and I’m at Low/medium :(

    970 done well at 1440 since release until recently :(

    Can get good discounts in Singapore but being white makes it hard. Have to take an singaporean Friend and make it sound like he’s buying it and paying for it.

    I'll certainly consider upgrading my 2700X if 3000 series turns out as well as hoped, but it would take some pretty compelling improvements to bother moving from X470 to X570.

    I've only upgraded from 1700 and B350 a few months ago, knowing that the next gen was coming but couldn't wait (there is always a next gen 'coming soon' :lol: ) . I was and am prepared to take a hit on the CPU if rumours turned out to be true but I doubt I'll be doing the same on the mobo.

    I'm also considering the 3700X as the sweet spot, 5GHz sounds sweet but an extra 300 bucks or more for 12 cores @ 5GHz vs 16 cores @ 5Ghz seems pretty pointless to me.

    if 16 coars is too much why would you even need 12? :p

    intel are launching a 10nm thing in a few months time i believe. probably cost you a kidney.

    I'm just not prepared to pay 800+ bucks for a CPU. Sure, its a 'nice to have' for epeen, but logic has to draw a line somewhere. Mine is about $500 or maybe a tad more. I honestly could probably get away with a 2400G and no GPU for the majority of what I do. You have to decide how much you are willing to pay for your toys.

    I'm anticipating many enthusiast's in the emergency department with alcohol poisoning shortly.

    My last two PC's(7700K & 8700K) were more than fast enough for me, so I never had need to overclock etc.. but I started doing some video editing recently and my current CPU(i7 8809G) is bit slow for video editing imo. It takes ~3mins to render 5mins long 1080p video files. So I want to upgrade to 9900K or Ryzen 7/9 3000 series asap.. well that's my excuse anyway. :D

    $800+ for CPU is expensive but if you consider the fact that Intel charge ~$640-$910 for extra 4 cores/8 threads then paying extra ~$300 for Ryzen 9 isn't too bad imo.

    We may not hear about 3000 series properly until June 10th, but apparently pre-orders of 3000 series and X570 begin July 1st.

    There seems to be some backtracking...

    https://twitter.com/AdoredTV/status/1132664835773259777?s=19

    And full specs on Zen 2 cpu's will be 7th of July apparently... not sure what Lisa Su will talk about for an hour if she hasn't got any hard data to share. Maybe it will be a 1 hour long tease...

    Intel just announced such a chip... but no TDP number...

    Edit: just over 2 hours to go... https://www.timeanddate.com/countdo...D+Keynote+at+Computex+2019&ud=1&font=sanserif

    ...and live stream...

    I can wait for specs, E3 is 2 weeks away. What I really want to see are more benchmark comparisons to current Zen and Intel
