Hey Ladies and Gents,

I was having a little cheeky look at the Ryzen 300 series and it looks like on their official site they're selling the 3900X for under £410. Personally I think this is a crazy good price for the CPU. P.S If you're also looking at the GPU's the 5700XT 50th anniversary edition is going for £357.70. Enjoy!

EDIT: After a few people got back to me with the VAT, the Total price adds up to: £488.57 so it's a lot more than I thought it was, sorry!

Major disappointment, really? It either trades blows or loses out slightly. For everything else it demolishes Intel.
If you have a 2080Ti or Titan and ONLY game. Team blue are still in the game. For everything else their share holders are crying.
Don’t forget AMD prices tend to reduce quite well. So they will be better value in about 2-3months. While Intel will continue to gouge your eyes out.

Also don’t forget anyone who going Ryzen 2 years ago, has a valid upgrade path without a new board in many cases. What Intel users can safely say that?

+VAT
That's without VAT.

Adds estimate VAT and shipping on checkout
Link is showing other online stores when I go to shop now
Same, that's minus VAT. Actual price is £488.

I forgot to add the VAT as well sorry guys! D:
What about VAT and probably a handling charge.
Life is a rollercoaster; from excited to disappointed in 1 second. "Thank you"
Why would you buy it from there? Amazon, ccl, overclockers sell it for £10 cheaper and you will probably get it sooner

Read the thread. They thought it was £410.

Even at 488...this is an AWESOME price and CPU...has left Intel 9900k in its dust. It even beats Threadripper in many tests....

not to mention that there's the usual "pushed up to last minute" amd launch, meaning there's various bios revisions that are hampering performance, reviewers that have used outdated windows builds w/o scheduler improvements - there's little reason to not believe that it will be even closer in a month or so. The situation right now is, if you exclusively game, have a > 1k gpu, extreme fps requirements, and don't care about anything else performance wise, nor you care about efficiency, security, price/perf, platform features, upgrade path, by all means go team blue. For everyone else is red, unless team blue significantly cuts prices.

In which world? You mean Hardware unboxing, Linus Tech Tips, Bitwiz, Hardware Nexus, JayzTwoCents, Dave Lee...etc etc etc etc etc... who've had the chips for a week to test but weren't allowed to post about them until yesterday....ALL saying they are now THE chip to go for....lol.
AMD is now THE premium chip in all marketplaces execpt laptops...and the new mobile Ryzen will probably take that too.... it wont last, Intel will come back...but denying AMD just now is beyondcfoolish.

Not if you only care about gaming performance, As Steve from Hardware Unboxed says:

"The 3900X was 8% slower than the 9900K on average at 1080p" & "if you want the absolute fastest gaming CPU then that’s still either Intel’s 9700K or 9900K".

Don't get me wrong I would choose Ryzen too for various other reasons but the 9700k/9900k still have a market.

Do you know what humans can actually see in gaming? The 3900x is the king chip because it is more than good enough for AAA gaming, has more longevity due to the 9900k starting to fall behind in technology...plus the 3900x uses vastly less power. Yes the 9900k SLIGHTLY tops it in frame rates by a % or 2 but only in Intel friendly games... it's like saying your going to buy a F2 car because its slightly faster than a Bugatti.....except you cant drive over 70mph... It might also be noted that all tests were run on 2000 chipsets....pcie 4 wasnt included but is part of the Ryzen2...plus it also used lower RAM....and Ryzen is very improved by faster RAM. There is also the Steve admitted issue with graphics updates which are wks away....

If you like streaming your game play I imagine AMD will pull ahead of both of those Intel CPUs

Watch the video above from Linus Tech Tips as Anthony sets out the NEW findings....Intel is, to all intent and purpose, dead in the water.
Intel is planning a series of 14nm+++ chips with hyperthreading for the desktop.High end one 10/20 cores and threads. So hypertheading could be back? Bug free? No idea when these will come out. Or availability of the top chips.
wccftech.com/int…mor

Main issue with AMD's new chips is limited supply. I think mainstream ones will come down in price in a few months. Especially if Intel releases updated 14nm+++ cpu. It also apperars that Intel is planning a new socket 1159 to go with these chips.

I think Laptop wise they are moving to 10nm much sooner. Personally I like the Ryzen chips just for number of cores and price. Albeit it does seem Intel have edge on gaming. Albeit very much EOL for 14nm upgrade path wise? AMD seem to be winning the power usage battle for now.

Great time to be upgrading if you have got an old system.

I don't know which reviews you been watching, but on all the ones I've seen they both trade blows on certain titles.

Show us the review you watched where Intel continuously beats the 3900x please.
Great processor, great reviews... but NOWHERE has any stock! All waiting for re-deliveries from AMD with no predicted dates! Bloody annoying.
