Just get the 3700X for £37 less. There is 100mhz (2%) boost difference which you will never notice except in benchmarks. You can use the saving for a new cooler.

However if you still want the 3800X then heat for the deal.

What will a deep global depression due to the price of processors?
In hindsight I should have got my CPU last. Still not got PSU, mobo, better hsf.

A lot of rare earth materials are mined in the east, the general consensus is but before the supply drops.

Dubious.

In benchmarks (and do look at Puget Systems' Lightroom and Photoshop tests here), the 3800x can outperform the 3700x by a fair margin. And, do keep in mind, the 3800x is better silicon than the 3700x - this usually means better odds of hitting 1900MHz IF, better boosts, better manual overclocks, and better undervolts.

Link me 1 benchmark where the 3800x leads by more than 5%

Define the term fair margin as it’s rather vague.
If Steve Burke says the 3800X isn't worth it, it isn't worth it.

Steve Burke, that is, of Gamers Nexus. I like Steve, but let's not pretend he's necessarily a decent source for anything beyond gaming.
Production of CPus probably wont be affected .. its not labor intensive and they all go round dressed in Hazmat suits anyway.
Demand will drop ..
I fear this whole episode will simply push ALL firms to more automation where possible. Bezos hates paying workers and will try to automate everything. Might mean firms also go for more localized production.The C word now, the R word soon?
consider 3700x as others have said .... same silicon, different Bin.

I disagree. Considering that he includes a variety of non gaming workload tests in his benchmarks, it seems clear to me he is putting in effort to provide useful data for those with other computing needs. I look elsewhere for further information, but despite the channel name, Gamers Nexus has a lot to offer even non gaming pc enthusiasts.

Surprising, thats the biggest difference of any benchmark Ive seen and its still only 6%. Here includes Cinebench, Premier Pro and blender and the differences are negligible techspot.com/rev…ce/
