Another nice price drop heading towards £100 mark. Price is delivered.

Zen 2 release yesterday left people feeling deflated I think due to the lack of overclocking available on the 3600. Why not grab a truly great bargain 6 core 12 thread cpu instead here?

It's still a great cpu regardless of Zen 2 and surely best price/performance gaming cpu out right now.
potential issue with boosting on 3000

Interesting. Hopefully for everyone who bought one this will enable some overclocking too.

It's funny how amd product releases never seem to go smooth. Guess that's just because they dont have the funds or know how nvidia/intel have? Dunno.
Is there any evidence the main system builders pass on these CPU price cut savings to customers?

Your question makes no sense


Makes perfect sense if you think it through. The retail price is cut by AMD etc to old processors often due to newer processors being released
Does this also affect wholesale prices paid by main system builders eg Chillblast et al and do they pass the reductions on to the processor cost when building customised builds.

How would we know that? Why not just ask the company yourself.

Similar thing for me.
Got my case.....and have been checking the "bundle deals" for a B450 mobo, 2600 n cooler (some with ram) and Ive not noticed the prices falling yet. Even got a buyer for the old pc at my work
So its still cheaper to make up your own bundle.
Think the retail PC unit sellers wont pass on the savings til later in the year.
Im hanging on for Prime Week.

It's a general question as there are a lot of similar deals posted here and a lot of other users who have different experiences over time.
But obviously not a stupid question as evidenced by another commentor. A lot of people monitor prices when choosing bundles
or specific customised full system builds with specified prices for components and wonder if it's worth holding on after significant retail price cuts. The 2600 is at already at a particular "good bang for your buck" point currently . I suspect the companies would rather increase their profit margins though occasionally
they might announce a price cut on older prebuilt systems if they have stock to shift.

IMHO at this price it only makes sense to upgrade to 3600 if you have a high refresh rate monitor, I'm happy with my Ryzen 2600 @4125MHz, although it is tempting to upgrade. I could sell my 2600 and buy 3600 but loose around 90£ for few extra frames.

Yeh same boat for me. No need whatsoever to justify the cost. I might try 4000 series though.
Great chip, this is a good price too. I was very lucky grabbing mine for £103 from that Curry's eBay deal a couple of weeks back.
This won't have the integrated graphics though I assume ?

releasing everything, cpus and gpus, in a single day was silly. but could have gone much worse.
