    7800X3D out next month I would wait as the price will most likely drop more.

    Do not bother with the 7950X3D if all you want to do is game as the 7950X3D has 8 X3D cores and 8 normal cores, it has the exact same X3D cache and the rest of the cache is just for those other 8 normal cores. It can also only hit 5ghz on it's X3D cores like the 7800X3D, the 5.7 number they post is just a single normal core, it cannot even boost all the normal cores to 5.7..... Just poor AMD marketing that will bite them in the bum come the reviews from proper tech people and not the Youtube shills.

    Most likely in gaming the 7800X3D will have less stuttering as it wont have the sync issues that comes with two chiplets.
    I hope you're right but I remain cautiously pessimistic about 7800X3D causing a price drop on the 5800X3D.

    People said the same about the 7000 series release in general and the price didn't budge then.

    5800X3D sales remain strong because of people wanting to get more life out of their AM4 platform.

    7000 series sales don't really cannibalise 5800X3D sales at this point. They're marketed at different demographics. I don't think 7800X3D prices will affect the 5800X3D personally.

    Worth an upgrade from a 3950x?, I realise it has more cores but I mainly game using my pc for gaming so won't notice much difference. I game at 3440 x 1440 with a 4080. Monitor is 200hz.
    4K same test
    3700X Min 30, Av 39, Max 54
    5800X3D Min 49, Av 70, Max 96

    I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I bought this listing on ebay instead:


    Worked out to be £282.97 with a fee free credit card.

    Worth a punt!
    Has it arrived yet? Tempted to order from them

    i think its still a rip off price personally. I paid this much with unchartered 3 bundle, i think i've been swindled its not as good as they say. Should have stuck to my 3600x.
    its not as good as they say

    Interesting, what GPU do you have it paired with ?
    What resolution and Hz do you play at ? (edited)

    Just bought this last week for like 350. Can’t complain about the ability of it at all. Although i would say if you are gaming this is great but if for production work the 5900x would be better. AND get / use PBO2 and undervolt. This is one hot puppy and undervolting will not only cool it but allow clocks speeds to get nearer the 4.5ghz boost target (edited)
    Can you use CTR 2.0 app to get better performance?

    £312.35 now......every little helps. Possibly time to bite for me. Assume i need to buy some thermal paste? Know my 5600x came with some.
    You'd need to get some, Noctua NT-H1 or NT-H2 is decent. There's plenty of other good ones out there!

    Would rather get the 5700x for just under £200. Just as much multi core perf, and a lot of the gaming perf. Yes, you get a ton more gaming perf with this but you have to ask yourself is the extra £140 or so really worth it for a now dead end platform? (edited)
    It would cost much more than £140 to procure an AM5 motherboard and DDR5 RAM.

    So it's definitely worth it if budget is an issue.

    £323.75 now, been going down few quid over last few days. Not sure if to bite now or wait and see how low it goes but risk it going back up too lol (edited)
    Prices will only come down. Demand is not there. It is stupid spending this much on a gaming PC right now.

    Any M-ATX motherboard deals for this? Really hard to find a decent budget board at the moment.

    With a 3060Ti at 1080p 144hz , would this be an improvement over my 3700x ?

    Worth to swap for my 5900x? Paired with 2070super on ultra wide 34 inch monitor, 3440x1440 res?

    Spend the money on a GPU. Even a 3070 would be a good upgrade, but a 3080 would be much better at that resolution. Used prices of GPU's are pretty decent right now.

    May as well buy from scan or Overclockers as it is only an extra £10 but you get CoH 3 included

    Nice high end gaming CPU, the problem is that the GPU prices are completely insane.

    Nvidia really should be in court at this point... (edited)
    In court for what?
