Just need this to come down a tiny bit more so I can do a budget mini build with the Onda B320 IPC slim ITX motherboard!
If Zen 2 is all we hope it is, you'll be able to pick up an 8 core Ryzen basically as fast as an i7 9700k in virtually every respect for ~£200. Sometime around June give or take a month.
Good to see prices finally falling on these but considering they are about to be eclipsed it's a pretty minor discount. IMHO the sweet spot for these right now would be £100. probably won't happen till the new AMD parts actually arrive but that is where they need to be otherwise more powerful CPUs are just too close in price...
At the moment a 2600 would be your best bet. However I would wait for Zen 2 if you can.
I’m excited these are all coming down as I’m planning a build this year! Any advice on a predominately gaming machine with some design work in terms of processor?
