Yeah only eight hundred quid for just a processor when ten years ago I …Yeah only eight hundred quid for just a processor when ten years ago I built a PC with all the latest parts for less than that. I know its a new generation but if we blindly accept these disgusting mark ups (from AMD who are supposed to be the budget company) then where does it end? This is the kind of pricing that used to cause boycotts and now we act like its a "Deal".


Do some research, I don't think you really understand this product, nor what its competitors cost.

Yeah, and you remember before that when we were paying £2500 for a 10mb HDD and people think they're getting a deal now paying £5000 for a 15.6tb ssd. Ha chumps

So many uninformed comments on here.
This is a repurposed server CPU for workstation usage and if you are aware of the typical cost of those you will know that this is very good value.

Good deal! I'll add it to my wishlist see if anyone's feeling generous personally cant justify spending that much, Good deal for those who can. 🔥 added

Never thought of AMD at these prices but Intel yes.
Thread ripper want steel cord more like it.

Prove it. Adjust for inflation and compare the CPU power from your bargain PC vs the CPU power from this and I bet this comes out on top for price vs performance when both were sold as flagship models with original RRP. Or shall we just make sweeping statements?

I guess that the purchasers are paying for the R&D in advance for future generations of budget processors?

What does a high end PC cost nowadays. In 1984 I paid £1200 for a top of the range 12mhz processor PC. I guess it still costs the same for a top of the range PC, so in that sense its a good deal?

What complete cods wallop!

This cpu is one of the fastest consumer cpus you can buy .. 16 cores /32 threads You may not appreciate this but many many do . Works out to be £49.93 a core or around £24.96 a thread... (excluding mobo & ram).

Please please read up before making uneducated comments

I doubt it will run Crysis, but Internet Explorer? Excel? All I can says is, Wow!

very good find OP, about time the UK price was a bit more realistic against the $1000 US price

You really don't know what you are talking about, do you actually have any idea of what this is and where it stands in the market? AMD make consumer CPUs from about £50, this is a top end enthusiast chip competing not with intel i5 or i7 cpus but with the i9, like the 7900x which is about £100 more than this.

It's actually a somewhat valid point. It is just accepted at this price and the mark up will be quite high, but for mainstream that doesn't matter. This isn't a processor aimed at the majority of us. Though it still is concerning how the price of RAM, CPUS, motherboards, GPUs and SSDs have all gone up over the years.

can you play minecraft with this?

Nope, no value to it at all. Prices are high at the moment on memory and GPUs but that's due to shortages, cryptominers etc. They were a lot cheaper a year or so back but they will return to more reasonable levels soon - for GPUs it seems to be happening already. Plus Brexit of course.

Either a bad attempt at trolling or just very very dumb

Yes £800 is a lot of money for a lot of people, but as mentioned, computer prices are high (even just prices of all things in general)
This IS an incredible price for what it is and what it offers, a little while back this wasn't even available to consumer, yes technology moves on and improves. Also if Zen processor didn't exist, we would ALL be paying over £2000 for a lesser processor - THIS IS A FACT, not even factoring in other costs like more expensive motherboards, no upgrade path, locked in tech, etc.

In a few years, we'll all be very grateful AMD managed to pull this off. We here in the UK will be a little behind the rest of the world to feel the full effect (due to Brexit - and no I am not complaining about Brexit)
people seem to underestimate the way Intel have held back world markets. Most things these days depend of technology and this has improved at very incremental amounts, for very high costs. Now businesses can begin truly recovering.
I have made a very lofty statement, can we have a reddit style bot to shame me?

You're completely out of your depth on this thread. Talking of threads, this is a very high end CPU with many threads, most people won't be able to use them, some people with money will buy this for bragging rights. For people that have a workload that can utilise this CPU, it's a monster for the money. I could buy this and so could many other people, should I buy it? No I don't need to impress anyone and mostly importantly I don't have the workload to utilise it. It's an awesome CPU though.

You're absolutely wrong about the price of high end computers, computers have massively come down in price. To compare your 1984 machine for its workload at the time, it would be the same as a £200 PC now, an office machine. It's impossible to compare based on high end. In fact you can buy a very nice PC for £1000 that most people would consider high end for their needs. Take inflation in to account and the economics of mass adoption (Critical Mass - Sociodynamics) then computing is in a place now where it absolutely was not in 1984. In 1984 about 1% could network their computer, now it's 99.9%, the social uses for computing are on a level unheard of in 1984, OK cut a long story short comparing 1984 computing to now is a red herring because a computer in 1984 was akin to using a rock to dig out a quarry by hand over a thousand years, today's computing is akin to a load of dedicated earth movers digging out a quarry in a few months.

The point is computers are cheaper now than they were in 1984, obviously much more capable in more ways than could be imagined back then. Two things accelerated critical mass of computing, one the massive but taken for granted these days invention called the Internet and secondly broadband. These two things mean computing is cheaper than ever and anyone that says pfff £799 for this CPU doesn't understand or have a clue about computing. Lastly computing is cheaper now vastly cheaper than it was in the 80's if you're strictly comparing workloads. A £1200 computer is equivalent to a £3500+ computer now talking inflation in to account. Hardly anyone pays that for a computer, and the massive difference is you effectively have the power of a super computer these days if you're comparing to 1984. It's not a straight forward comparison.

I don't think I've missed anything out, being polite maybe? I'm only in to that if it's useful, it wasn't today.

Modern CPU IS a computer. It has an integrated monitor and keyboard and a printer. So stop crying and work harder so you can afford things. Or do just the usual - get yourself a 4-pack of lager.

This is a high end part, it’s not for home use / gaming. It’s for servers or the likes of high end 3D rendering where the speed of these can pay for themselves in time saved many times over. People shouldn’t really comment so negatively on things they know nothing about. This product was half the price of the Intel equivalent when released and has forced Intel to be more competitive.

Looked it up on cpubenchmark and its got the most amazing score I've ever seen.
I think this chart explains why it is a good deal. Its 9th place in high end CPUs competing again $3,000 processors

cpubenchmark.net/hig…tml

Intel would be ripping us off if AMD weren't around

I should have done a search first as I didn't see this deal (tired) but you can buy this from Amazon.fr for £756-757 delivered, so a decent £40+ saving. I've posted the deal already, so if you are buying one then this isn't the cheapest deal.

What's the cost of sending back to France, fully insured?

I'd normally recommend the same, but for an £800 product it really isn't worth the hassle.

If you were sending it back as faulty, then you wouldn't use Amazon, since this is retail CPU warranty is done directly through AMD just like it is for Intel's retail CPU's. If you decided you didn't want it, and want to return it, then it'll be about £15-20 using a courier, but then if you are not sure about buying it in the first place I'd say don't bother.

Whats all the talk of France? This looks like Amazon UK to me.

Looking to build a supercomputer for my video rendering so very tempted. I still think its more cost effective to get it built by PCSpecialist.

Heat added.

Having returned a 1700X to France this year, I can tell you you won't find a courier that will insure it to anything like that value for even close to that, in fact, double your figures.

Fault warranty is different, but if for example you get a lemon that doesn't OC well then you're going to be losing the difference/saving in returning it.

Its a valid contribution, but for me personally, saving 5%~ in this case isn't worth while.

If you chose to return a product because it doesn't overclock as well as you hoped then that is up to you. Personally I find that sort of thing abhorrent, if the product is working within it's specified limits and you wish to return it still as not faulty, then paying a high fee to return it is not something you can complain about at all.

I can build a PC today for £40 that would blow your 10 year old PC away and at the same time run a can opener. What was your point?
