    Heya since you have that model, can you let me know if the x16 PCI-E 4.0 can be turned down to PCI-E 3.0?

    A PCIe 3.0 card (e.g. GPU) will work in a PCIe 4.0 slot - but only at PCIe 3.0 speeds (which is fine).

    Buy first, regret later. This is the OzBargain way :)

    Yes I just wanted to know as I'm using a vertical GPU cable and mount and those only come in PCIe 3.0

    Feeling rich?

    300mm PCIE4 Riser cable

    Not sure if you can get shorter ones, but I can't see why not. A bit of googlefu would probably find one. I assume 300mm is too long for you?

    Well the official XT series CPUs are a bit of a let down - esp. since the base clocks are untouched.

    Overall, it's like a 4% in boost clock performance at the same RRP as the X counterparts

    Thats what Im running now. Im on a 200mm length though. They go down to like 100mm or so iirc. Running it with my 5700XT in 4.0 error free no problems. I tried both a Fractal and a Phanteks and neither worked.

    That is disappointing. I wonder how they clock.

    Does anyone know when the NDA lifts? Is it the release date?

    Most likely 7/7, pretty sure it was the same last year.

    The refresh doesn't look very compelling but I need to build a new system soon so if they're priced alright it would be ok, does anyone remember/have launch prices from last year? I'd expect them to be lower than, but close to those. Honestly though, to make them attractive they need to be closer to current prices, wouldn't want to spend too much of a premium over current parts.

    That's a bummer. A whole 100Mhz rise in max single-thread turbo clocks. Wow - amazing :rolleyes:

    If the fresh silicon is more likely to guarantee say 1900fclk, and if that boost clock translates into lighter threaded workloads (say, where my 3900X runs ~4300Mhz in game, instead a 3900XT runs ~4400Mhz in game) I think it would be worth paying RRP vs a discounted normal X price.

    I'm interested to see if they have changed the CCX/CCD layout on the 3800XT. But yeah, overall this is about as exciting as the Intel 10 series was.

    The 3800xt is kinda where I might be looking for a work/play allrounder so it will be interesting.

    Its definitely as exciting as 10th gen but at least its just a refresh and not a new generation, really it just gets me more excited for what zen3 has to offer.

    I'm in a similar boat, if Zen3 isn't compatible with my X470 board, a 3800XT is probably the best suited chip to upgrade to from my 2700X.

    From some benchmarks I've seen on the 3900X, a ~100Mhz overclock gets you like 1-2 FPS in most games. Hardly worth the price difference of the XT RRP vs discounted X IMO

    Especially if a discounted X can clock the same as an XT.

    Oh yeah, if it's a similar case to 3700X vs 3800X it's definitely not worth it, especially with any bang for buck in mind. But to get a good bin chip to last a few years, for me it's worth paying that little bit more. The same argument can be made between a $100-200 AIO vs the stock air cooler, that's pretty much the same ~100mhz difference.

    It's nice having decent in-game clocks without needing a manual OC, will have to wait until reviews come out to know if it's all a pointless endeavour though.

    Not to mention the fact that a 12 core Zen2 is arguably more suited to non-gaming tasks than the 8 and 6 core Zen2 parts.
    Also no one should be buying from team blue at this point :D
