      I think it's great AMD is flipping the bird to Intel without using their other hand to flip the bird to their consumers. They could follow Intels lead for the last decade if they really wanted to.
      What ever barely noticeable gap Intel may still pull over AMD will be caught up and surpassed fairly easily. A bios tweek or two and optimization from developers should easily tip the scales. And as for sales, not only are new PC builds likely to have AMD this time around... but those who jumped on the Zen bandwagon at any point can now drop this CPU in their system with a simple bios update.
      The days of Athlon 64 vs Pentium 4 are creeping back and can only imagine whats going on behind closed doors over at Intel.

        My 4790k at 4.8ghz with 4x4gb ddr3 2133mhz have 5716 points single core on geekbench 4...

          Backwards motherboard support sounds extremely interesting to me, having a Ryzen 5 2600 right now with an X470 motherboard.
          So, so much better than my FX 4350.

            R5 3600 is good for a budget pc, cheaper than the i5 9600k, and its better at everything except for gaming

              Core is dead. Intel needs a new architecture .

                Intel fanboys will buy Intel no matter what. So keeping their prices high is hilarious. It's costly to literally be an Intel fanboy these days. Luckily Ryzen third gen narrowed the IPC gap and offers more cores and performance for less (again). I went with the Ryzen 2700 because due to the third gen release, the second gen which was already quite cheap, got even cheaper. Keep up the good work AMD, if anything I hope you can force Intel to lower prices again so their fanboys don't get gouged yet again.

                  That thumb flick in the end equals in a slight future "delay" in Jay receiving Intel CPU-s to play with. (AMD approves this message) ;-)))

                      Jay, I have an i5 3570k overlooked(using air cooler) to 4.2ghz on a Asus Z77 mobo, a reference GTX 980,16gb of ddr3 ram and it’s all crammed inside a NZXT H500 case. Pretty much all I do is run games with it...and it does a decent job at that at 1080p maxed settings. I’m just wondering if it makes sense to buy a used i7-3770k and upgrade my GPU to say a 2060 super or should I just update to another platform altogether? Will an i7-3770k keep up with a 2060 super?

                        why we dont compare equally amd vs intel like i5-9600k vs ryzen 3600 without hyper threading? same thing for i7 9700k vs ryzen 3700

                          How is that equally? Amd gets hyperthreading for the same price, those intel cards are just not worth it against zen

                        Time for a little payback by consumers. Intel jacked up their prices when AMD was down. You can't justify buying any Intel CPU now. Stick a fork in intel i'll never buy from then again. AMD definitely king now.

                            Short term great but AM4 feels an EOL, investment like Radeon VII, curious where threadripper is heading.

                            Consumers will always jump to the cheaper option if its available, for years Intel & Nvidia have dominated the market, & with that came stagnation & lack of innovation. AMD has proven to everyone that it can beat Nvidia & Intel on pricing, but with these new CPU's & new GPU's available & soon to be available Navi 20, they've also proven they can more or less give consumers the same amount of bang for their dollars costing less than Intel & Nvidia. Brand loyalty suckers will always have something to say. But pricing over similar performance will always win, unless you've got money to burn. And this factor will always be important for many consumers.

                              Here's a stupid and impractical idea where AMD is better than intel, if you're a gamer, you buy the 3900x, you just game on it, but when you are not using it because you're busy, you can rent it out to a friend/stranger who just started shooting videos for a living and has just enough money for his camera and a laptop to do same day edits. :) make small profit. stupid and impractical, but it's still a small profit. xD

                                    I think that maybe, we will be getting more inovations on both sides, because Intel sat on their asses until ryzen came and didn't inovate at all. If I were to build a desktop, I would go with AMD. Intel is falling behind this time.

                                          Great detail and examples. I upgraded to zen 1 due to price and power draw. Windows 10 1903 has some issues with AMD chipsets which you can update drivers

                                              From benchmarks i've seen, the 9700k does better than the Ryzen 7 3700X AND the 3900X when it comes to gaming. There are few games the Ryzen's actually outperform.

                                              Considering the 9700k is $509.00CDN right now...I think it's still the better buy for gaming. Even streaming + Gaming perfomance favored the i7-9700k. Not sure what all the hype is over the new Ryzens...and I had high hopes. If a 9700k is cheaper than a 3900X by a few hundred bucks....I'll stick with the 9700k as the best buy. Not to mention the new x570 chipset motherboards have active cooling (concerning) and cost way more in comparison to Intel options. I think AMD is very close and on the right track...but gaming is still Intel's domain.

                                                  It would mean that your GPU could always work at its full potential. As for how well it would game, at 1080 you could max out everything, you could even max most games at 1440.
                                                  All-round it would be a decent gaming rig that would smash most games easily.
                                                  Just don't listen to the YouTube no-lifers who have i5's and GTX960s, who jump in every comment section to say "haha, it sucks, anything less than 9900k and SLI 2080s like mine is shit"

                                                  I don't think the commentator understand what IPC is. Any test that includes disk or memory processing isn't an IPC test and doesn't measure IPC. The difference in processing times shown here could actually be mostly due to ryzens faster memory i/o and nothing to do with IPC.

(Bethesda and Fallout 76) I am refreshed and am looking forward to purchasing a CPU from AMD. I'm looking forward to buying PC hardware again!? What year is it?

Its nice to have competition specially for the consumer it'll equate into better products ( hopefully )

                                                                                  Why is it Intel is essentially extorting a higher price on the 9900K, for less cores & threads, when AMD are charging far less for a superior CPU with more cores & threads???

                                                                                  That should be the title for the video: Why is Intel charging more for an inferior User Experience with the 9900K vs the 3900X

                                                                                  Your title is basically loaded and implies the new AMD 3000 Series are somehow the chumps here when the opposite is true.

                                                                                  Jayz, can you just be a straight shooter one time?

I am looking to upgrade from FX8350 and it is my intention to have two boot drives where one will boot up Windows to work with SolidWorks and the other will boot up Debian based distribution called Elive so I can use Davinci Resolve to edit videos.

                                                                                      I am settled for GPU, it will be 8GB AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 VR Workstation Graphics Card

                                                                                      The CPU, on the other hand, is what I need help with. Originally i was thinking of 2950x and now i see that 2970wx is a £120 more, so it looks like really attractive CPU for me. Now with 3900X out, i am puzzled. I love 64 PCIe lanes that you get with 2nd gen CPUs and all storage drives that i can have with it. In addition to that, I love the size of TR4 socket. As Jay mentioned about backward comparability of AMD products I think there is a high possibility that In the future AMD will produce CPU that will be TR4 and can be run on x399 motherboards with BIOS update.

                                                                                      So what would you suggest, considering that budget is not a limiting factor?
