Ah the old urgency vs availability game. I'm in a similar boat, I really am fine with my hardware at the moment, but this 6800k is failing to make my loins froth and I really have that bug to build something new.

The Ryzen 3 series will be worth waiting for, "leaks" indicate a 15% jump over their current chips thanks to 7nm and with the product being shown at CES2019 it could be a very exciting chip. Intel are far too overpriced for what they do, AMD brought everything back into line with their pricing lineup.

intel's 10nm failing really put a spanner in the works, the 9 series chips in both the Z and X lines are not exactly amazing value wise, the 8 series seeing a price increase to compensate for the loss of revenue (also fucking lol at the 7 series still going for over AU$500), 7nm from AMD may be worth the <6 month wait.

If not, a 2700x owns and everyone who I know that owns one thinks it's an amazing chip, performance and cost wise.
And here we are, 15% IPC gain, increased clockspeeds and PCI-e 4. Apparently the floating point performance has been doubled bringing parity with intel in conventional games.
I wonder how well the ryzen 3 series will perform in the bleeding edge emulators.

What's interesting is that they uped the IPC uplift from 13% to 15% based on the slides released before and during the event:

I'm really thinking hard about that 3900x, my Broadwell E 6800k looks like a right dick head next to the 3600 $199 chip which is ludicrous.

Some AVX instructions and that nice IPC bump (reminds me of sandy bridge days) makes these cpu's look good, but really makes me wonder how intel are going to perform at 7nm. With intel security issues and AMD just solidly plodding along, if they can keep their power consumption under control they are going to do gangbusters in the server market.

Also the 3600 is interesting from a value point, a nice hint as to what we can expect in the next line of consoles.

Thinking in getting the top model myself and switch to AMD after so many years. Emulators such as Cemu and RPCS3 will perform extremely well on it I believe.

The state of the mobo's tho, new chipset pulls like 15w and is sounding like a bit of a problem. The power of PCIE4 people.

It will do some cool things I'm sure, but that power consumption and heat management is sounding a bit brutal.

Also lol at ASRock for releasing a fully watercooled US$999 mobo, that company is truly blessed.

If it's at least as good as they say it is for $500, then I'll buy it because it's not that much. I'm thinking about upgrading anyway, so that's a lot less than I thought I'd invest in the upgrade, and considering the performance I'll get far more than I expected.

Word on the streets is the 3900x can hit up to 4.8 all core with some decent cooling. That makes my loins froth.

The 16 core is purportedly hitting 4.25 on cinebench, pretty ok for 16 cores I guess, but cinebench is too short a test to really sweat a CPU long enough before it balances out.

If AMD keeps pushing like this i will probably go back to using them for my next build, but at the way things are hopefully that will only come in the next 5 years. I'm really surprised how well this i7 6700 handles when going about with my daily necessities and gaming tendencies (well here the RTX 2060 also helps :p).

I'm sitting on a 4790k which is still great for games but it's time to modernize my platform with a big fast nvme SSD and raw power for some AI projects I'm working on.
I'm using AI upscaling to redo dragonball z but right now it takes me 2 days an episode and 14tb of space per.

I am currently on an i5 3570k @4.2ghz still and I am torn between the 3700x and the 3800x as its replacement for streaming [email protected] gaming is perfectly fine still as long as I am NOT doing anything else at the same time as gaming

3700x if you are worried about power envelope, I think the 3800x is just sucking more juice out of the box hence the beefier spec. I think the price difference will get you a slightly better board and more stable clocks. Of course benchmarks will tell. 40w for 100mhz isn't really all that and you'll probs get the same performance if you open up the taps a little on the 3700x.

Let's see what kind of shrooms ASROCK are on when they drop their boards (seriously bless that company).

holy shit that's a nice improvement!

3200G and 3400G are basically looking like a die shrink of the 2200 and 2400 respectively, nothing to get excited for.

3950x, 16 cores at 4.7ghz is pretty pants shittingly exciting, $750 makes it the big boy in the lineup and is fairly well priced for that much. You can get a 2nd gen threadripper and a cheaper board for a competitive price right now. Available September.

Currently looking at b450 boards with ac wifi on board such as the MSI B450 Gaming PRO Carbon AC since I just need a slot for the GPU and a single PCI-e X1 slot for my capture card.

Ok it looks like a build will be happening next year becuase of things happening this year so it looks like a B550 and 3700x will be what I am going for if the 3700x gets better overclocking potential then the 3800x

12 core is a bargain, the 8 core is a bargain, intel dropx their price by 15%, not good enough lmao.

RPCS3 is the only one i heard that takes advantage of multiple cores but i dont think its up to 12 :p .
