    Will wait for reviews 1st if there’s a decent gain over my 2700x then I’ll get one. Will also wait to see if my current ch6 is up to the job, if it’s fine I’ll just get a new cpu otherwise I’ll get a new mobo and replace my nephews 7700k with my ch6/2700x so he has a upgrade path(basically my old parts as I upgrade fairly often).

    Yeah and keeping my trusty B350 xD

    Prob going 3700X so should be fine / use less power than my 2700X.

    AMD CPU division is on fire atm.

    If only they could make high-end GPU to match.

    If I can use my current X470 motherboard with the 16 core and not run into any stability/performance issues then yes otherwise I'll wait for a while.

    I mean it could make sense if you are on lower range card. I'm on an RTX 2080 atm so no real upgrade path for me atm. Would love to go AMD again (I really dislike Nvidia as a company) but need something faster to be worthwhile.

    Maybe next year well see some better options at the high end. Prices are bonkers right now regardless...

    If its as simple as a bios update and I can load up a 3950x in place of my 2700x to double the cores, then I'm in.

    I'll be Intrested in the new Ryzen 8/16 core/ thread chip if it plays nice in my B450 tomahawk mobo. Certainly not dropping a couple of hundred on a new motherboard. I have a few rigs 3 Intel and 1 Ryzen atm.

    I have no need for the 16 core, but i'll defo grab myself a 12 core, I want to see how they pan out first though, I wont rush into it, I may even hold out until next year when they release 7nm+, by that time I expect they would have refined the 7nm tech a bit and we'll see the faster clock speeds with RyZen 4000.

    AMD 3000, Can't come to terms with the HEAT those X570 boards generate...water cooled MB's, sounds like a bodge-up. Plus, you won't be able to get CPU's for ages.

    I'm really talking myself into a new mobo to go with a new 3000 chip. I'm sure my ch6 would handle a new 8 core Ryzen 3 but I really fancy a change to either a x470 or x570. As i said before I would give my nephew my old CH6 and 2700x to replace his 7700k that i've had to limit to 4.5 due to heat so it would be a major upgrade for him. He doesn't need to much grunt as he only has a 1080p 60hz monitor but does like to have loads off stuff open that the 7700k does seem to struggle a little with. Plus he's really into RGB (stupid kids) but his mobo has no rgb headers so he's limited to 3 colours from his case, the ch6 has aura that he could mess with.

    I have a 9900k system, 8700k system and a Ryzen 2600 rig. I'll never say no to more cores and threads but a relatively cheap Ryzen 8/16 core/thread chip would go down well in my B450 ideally

    Going from gen 1 to 3, but I will see how the backwards compatibility works on the motherboards. If I can keep my Taichi then happy days, will buy an 8 core and look to go all out on the next gen when the graphics market will hopefully look better.

    They haven't done with Zen and Zen+, not sure why you think Zen2 would be a failure?

    I have a 2700x at the moment but will be 'upgrading' to a 3700x. Mainly so I can move the 2700x to another PC downstairs. I think the 3700X is really the big news here although the other CPUs look good too. But 8 cores, 16 threads a little bit faster than the 2700X and for just 65 watts is unreal. I have a fairly tight case so this new chip looks ideal for heat / noise.
