wowzers that's overpriced!

At that price point, wouldn't people needing the cores just go last-gen Threadripper?

Last gen TR doesnt have the single core performance so is a bit more compromised in terms of CPU performance.

12 cores for £500 isn't really overpriced in the grand scheme. Intel were charging £600 for the 9900K before this came out. 12 core Intel was north of 1K iirc.

I think RRP was £480 at release but demand and limited supply has nudged prices up.

Nah. Threadripper sucks for gaming. I'm after one of these so I can game and stream on one system. I have Threadripper currently. Depends what you're after though.
The 3900x is a monstrous chip to be fair. Paid the same price from CCLONLINE. Heat added
Monster indeed. 12 cores. 24 threads. With AMD competing, processors are finally coming down in price. When Intel are far in front, they just milk the market
Niche product... As always wait 6 months and costs lower. Most normal people would be more than happy with a 2700x
Even with availability related price hikes this CPU is still a bargain.
Intel need to drop there 9900k to about 250-300 quid if they want to make this cpu look anything less than awesome.

Complete and utter overkill for 99% of us, but when did that stop us upgrading our PC's

I have specific need for the processor to increase the fps in xplane where i am cpu bound and to give myself the best chance for microsoft flight sim 2020. Agree its not for everyone tho

I still have a big fondness for AMD. Mainly because of the Duron and Athlon overclocking days. I think their acquisition of ATI is only now coming to fruition.
I got tired of waiting and bought a 3700k, they still get my money but not as much. Supply problems must be costing them a fortune right now.
Pre ordered from Scan last month for £529 and still waiting for them to get stock. Their expected stock arrival date keeps changing.

I'm interested in the system requirements for that game. It looks amazing

Its a bit of an off one as you can run it on a reasonably low end system with low settings but as you ramp up thr various settings, resolution and use add ons you need a much beefier system. With all settings maxed and addons i think achieving 30-40fps would be a challenge with a 2080ti and 3900x!

So something for everyone

The games uses more the. 8 cores fully ?

No, xplane isnt well optimised at present but they are updating it more around using a new graphical api. So yes a 3900x probably wont perform much differently than a 3700 at the moment!

As for microsoft flight sim 2020 i have no idea but hopefully will use as many cores and threads as you can throw at it hence why i decided to go as high as i could. At the end of the day even that may perform just as well with a 3700 but even so the added advantage of running multipla apps (which you do for flight sim - i.e comms, navigation charts, moving maps etc) or streaming decided it for me

Apparently one of the YouTubers who was invited to play the pre alpha version said the computers were running RTX cards, didn't mention which ones. I'll link the video if I can find it

I managed to get one of these from AWD for below retail in their bundle deals when it first came out (before everyone knew about the supply issues).

For £500-550 it's an absolute bargain. Mine's running my PFSense Router, and 9 other VMs, and it idles at < 1% usage. Pushing 380Mbps WAN -> LAN uses 20% of one core. It gets very hot, very quickly when you push it - but at full whack it's a beast.
