EDIT: Seems to have 8 back in stock at this price, 05/08/20 8:38AM

4 left in stock. Not exactly a huge bargain but prices across Amazon and other suppliers have recently gone from the standard £161 to £169 if not higher. These prices might go down in the future but if you're looking to build a PC with this processor in the next couple of weeks like I do these might come in handy.

Not quite but if you're looking to buy the 3600 cpu to build a PC now this is your best bet, all other suppliers at the moment have higher prices
Seems to have hung onto it's price for months.
As Intel aren't releasing smaller Nm for maybe 2 years, AMD should run away with things further with the new releases this and next year..

Think it's worth waiting for this to drop? Collecting parts for my upgrade (about 2 months) and not sure to buy my processor now or the motherboard and ram
Currys, with an eBay code, had these for £144 back in May. Would have thought the price would be lower now given the human malware situation should have eased the supply issues.

Maybe retailers were expecting a better showing from Intel 10th Gen back in May that never materialised.

The Ryzen 4 APUs which include graphics are not to be confused with the Ryzen 4 CPUs due out soon, those will be based on the refined architecture.

The APUs seem to release later on. Great AMD naming :).

Indeed, the naming is super confusing. 4xxxG APUs do not have Zen 3 architecture, but 4xxx CPUs (releasing later this year) will.

I’m expecting AMD to leverage the recent Intel fumble and not have to drop the 3xxx CPU range price for the Zen 3 launch, so don’t hold out for any significant price drops this year. This is already a fair price.
Meh appreciate this is cheapest *at this very second* but not the most exciting deal, higher than the last few weeks average, so i won't vote hot or cold

Those "new" APus 4700G etc are just the zen3 (3000 seriesCPU)* with vega gfx . Sadly they havent improved the gfx side at all which is where they were weakest (actually they have, but they've cut down the CU's from 11 to 8)..

* all on one chip tho

Zen 2*

They also don't use PCIE 4.0 either, making them as good as pointless if buying now.

No wonder they wanted it in OEM systems first.

These are 4000 series based on zen2 architecture. These APU’s are like the current 3000 series but with a dedicated gpu, so imo not much reason to push prices down. Wait for the Zen 3 architecture.

Those are APUs though, so not the natural successor to the line of Ryzen CPUs as in this deal. We'll have to wait a bit longer to find out how prices will be affected. By 2021 I think there will be deals to be had as an unprecedented global recession hits the world. As always if you can "Utilise it now and need it now", then buy it now is the general rule, there's always exceptions of course. Buying just before Christmas is almost always a bad idea, for now though in August, if you can use it and need it then get it.

I think I'm ready for the global recession, saving mode is activated and I'm selling off all surplus items in my house to try and keep some extra cash in the bank. I built my Ryzen build in January fortunately, so my job now is to save save save money. Doesn't stop me poking around HotUKDeals for the irresistible bargain of course but I've truly reigned in my spending now, the big one is coming and it's going to be very nasty. So I think there's going to be bargains in 2021 almost certainly as long as you're in a position to capitalise. Definitely hope I'm wrong, if you need to get your affairs in order, now is the time to do it, as many people will be getting financially wiped out next year.

Do you think it would be a good idea to buy a new CPU on release date (gen 3 Ryzen), depending on when it's released or wait for the Black Friday deals in November? I've been very patient waiting for Gen 3 Ryzen to come...

PS I read that the APUs do have some improvements over just Gen 2 Ryzen, but yeah... not the bigger change Gen 3 is bringing.

Look at the evidence, if we look for Alien Invasion then there's the recently released UFO footage from the US Government, which is a clear attempt to obfuscate the real narrative. In terms of Zombies, usually they in folklore and films result from a pandemic. Whilst there's a current pandemic, there's zero evidence it has the ability to raise the dead. So now we look at the real evidence

"UK GDP falls by record 20.4% in April as lockdown paralyses economy"

"Gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 19.1% in the three months to May 2020, following falls of 10.8% in April and 2.2% in March. All the main sectors in the economy also saw a fall in the most recent period."

"June 2020 GDP Tracker. The UK economy looks set to decline by 20 to 25 per cent in the second quarter of2020, a significantly steeper decline than the first quarter, reflecting the full impact of lockdown measures"

Now we look at what is happening currently in August, are all businesses in the UK back to operating, no. Footfall in shops is massively lowered. This pandemic is affecting all sectors of the economy, there is a boom in the housing market which is a false dawn, people are acting naturally, they need to buy, they need to sell their houses, they have the opportunity to do so currently, in 2021 this ability will be stifled by mass unemployment, financial market crashes globally. Already businesses are folding, and some are just weeks away from running out of money with no assistance.

Anyway hopefully I made some attempt to address your tin foil hat assertion. Will there be an unprecedented financial collapse in 2021, the evidence is that there will be a recession of some considerable severity.

Anyway to get things back on topic :

I paid about £170 for my Ryzen 5 3600 in January 2020, I paid £120-£130 for 32GB DDR4 3200MHz. I bought it then because I decided to stop using macOS and Windows 10 and instead use Linux. I've made good use of my PC so far. I could have waited and saved £80-£100 maybe but hindsight is a wonderful thing. Predicting the future is also dicey, based on the evidence in front of us, looks pretty bad I would say.

Long and short, I agree with this. You can wait for the next thing or you can just buy it now, thing is with computers is there’s a massive opportunity cost if you don’t buy when you need it. Switching up to Ryzen from a 4C/4T i5 has made my computer much more fluid and responsive so I actually get more done. I don’t regret buying when I did though Zen 3 is close and XT chips should really have pushed the ‘non refresh’ ones down, not up... at least memory prices are falling again.

Do you need to buy now? Do you have an imminent purpose whereby delaying would stop you from achieving this purpose? If you don't need to buy now then the metrics to consider are:

1. Monday 7th September 2020, this is Labor day in USA and is the NASDAQ Stock exchange holiday, traditionally the US market takes stock (ooh a pun!) of the financial situation of the year, watch with interest what happens at this first major metric.

2. At the same time follow the UK furlough timeline next metric to watch is September 1st 2020 when employers must contribute 10% of pay to all workers. Check for red flags, are employers starting to make staff redundant and in what numbers?

3. 15th September 2020 which is the 45 day consultation period for CJRS (Corona virus retention scheme) and 45 days prior to the end of CJRS

4. 1st October 2020, employers must contribute 20% of wages to Furloughed staff, compare with 10% metric and evaluate job redundancy numbers.

5. October 30th CJRS ends.

Now this timeline gives you a guide to possibilities, Black Friday is 27th November 2020, depending of the severity of redundancies based on the above, the available money and the fact that people will have less money for Christmas there's a possibility that Black Friday could be good for people that have the money to spend as retailers sense the tingling feeling turning to pain.

TLDR;

Wait if you can, otherwise spend, because the economy needs you to spend, but spend sensibly.
