    I went from looking at looking at the 3600 to 3600x then the 3700x and now 3900. Think I’ll pick one up when funds allow.

    If you can't make use of the cores and threads yet, the sensible move seems to be 3700x with the extra you'd spend on the CPU going towards a good x570 board, pcie4 ssd and 32gb fast ram. When 4000 starts dropping in price with bios revisions done, drop in the 12/24.

    That happens when a company puts AM4 socket on a laptop :p
    Some might put a 3950X and try to overclock it.

    That also means it could be upgradable - in theory you could slot in a ryzen 4000 though the laptop maker would need to release a bios/firmware update most likely and Indoubt that will

    And? I hope you don't think the share price is the sole indicator of company value, otherwise Berkshire Hathaway would be richest company on Earth many times over.

    AMD's share price would need to reach $200 for it just to match Intel's current market value

    Yeah, is using B450 so it would just need bios update.

    *prods AMD* so give us a 4200/4400G or 3100/3300G as well.

    Yeah. My (misplaced) hope for 7nm APU sooner rather than later, is high.
    It seems a bad time to be going for a 3400G.

    4c8T Zen2 for under £100 would be bloody good value. With or without an igp.

    Latency will be lower with cores within the same CCX. There'll probably only be 8 pcie lanes available for graphics cards, but at least it'll be gen 4 this time.

    Had my 3600 now a little over 2 months on 4.2GHz.

    Moves from a 2700X and I do miss the extra cores in benchmark tests, the 2700X always scores higher. The 3600 is quicker in the real world if that makes sense?

    What's the best CPU for a B450 board?

    May pickup an 2700x to pair with my vega64 as a second rig.

    Was thinking about a 3900x, but in the long run i think i'm just tempted to upgrade for the sake of something new. I have 3600mhz ram that my 2700x absolutely hates and i generally keep it around 3000mhz. A 3900x is more likely to run it at max speeds i suppose but not sure what that would do for performance, barely noticable gains im guessing?
