    If it's competing with the 10700k on everything other than high thread loads, then I think it will. Although we need independent reviews to know more.

    I would prefer the 10700k, as it can be bought for around £350.

    But like you say, we need to see reviews.

    Does anyone know when reviews are supposed to drop?

    There's no confirmation. Unless we hear otherwise, it'll be on launch day.

    Once people see reviews i think it will, it will be compared to the more expensive 10700K for performance.

    Those looking for a cheap CPU will just get the Ryzen 3600.

    Once these are released what do we think the value of my R9 3900X will be? I paid about £400 for it about 6 months ago

    No idea, it should hold some value given its a 12 core CPU and still relatively new.

    Hope there will be more stock than the 3080. I'm looking at the 5900x.

    I think the 3900X will hold its value well as it appeals to so many use cases. Highend desktop, gaming system, workstation.

    The 5600x has done 3900x owners a favour in the used Market space....

    You would still buy a 10700k for £350 if the 5600x is faster In gaming and even in production workloads?

    No I did not say that.

    The 3700X for £200 was an amazing deal - but you had to get to Stoke to be able to buy one. It was a store-only deal.

    I even checked how much it would cost to get to Stoke - and it was about £120 by train, lol.

    Yes, because intel still leads in music production, due to the latency. Might be different with Zen 3, might not be, have to wait for reviews.

    Too expensive really, especially at the low end. Intel are starting to be price competitive.

    You said you wouldn’t pay £200 for for a 3700X because you had some kind of mental problem paying £200. £320 for a 3700X is a reasonable price BTW.

    They look like decent enough value from what I’ve seen.

    Funny how you accuse me of having a bad memory and yet you consistently misquote me time after time :p

    easy asked me if I'd be by happy paying £350 for a 5700X and I say "No, I'd be happy paying £300 (or less) for a 5700X".

    I also previously (a fairly long time ago) said it would be nice for 8c to be the new mid-range x600 SKU. But that isn't happening as we can all plainly see from AMD's price hikes.

    If the 3700X was £200 I would buy it. Simple as that. *Nowhere* did I say I would turn down a £200 3700X. Nowhere. The fact that I looked a the cost of getting to Stoke when they did that in-store only deal should clue you in to that really.

    e: Oh I think I know what you're referring to. I said I wouldn't pay more than £200 because it had been £200 previously I'm never OK with paying more than somebody else :p

    £200 I would bite at, currently prices, nah.

    Not from what I've seen, certainly not at the lower end. Price/performance down from the previous gen. The Turing of CPU releases.
