Hey LTT, I’m in the process of building my very first PC but out here in central California their are no computer hardware stores in my area that can supply the build I want, I even went to Best Buy and they don’t carry high-end pc build parts, I’m left with the option of ordering online... if you were going to buy very high-end parts for a pc build online, who would you buy from? Or where do you go to get all your pc build parts...

Yes, that's what I always say too. People just don't know how bad they are getting screwed when buying all these Taiwanese semiconductor parts. All of it is based from there and is so cheaply designed and made. Any real technical person in the field can or that works in a fab can tell you how cheap these damn products are. These monopolies all rip people off with these price fixing products. Who puts the value on the products? The monopolies do. Like real estate. Same damn thing. It's because there is no free market any longer just monopolies that buy every competitor or price them out of business like Amazon. Corsair, Thermaltake, Gigabyte, MSI, Zotac, Biostar, all these cheap Taiwanese based companies use the same damn parts in everything cheaply designed and put together without any real engineering thought that goes in it. Cheap controllers, PWM, VRM, Caps, switches, everything is so damn cheap in every part yet most people don't give a shit as long as it works. The failure rate is at it's highest today with these parts being at the highest cost it has ever been. AMD might be the underdog but who's to say that they wouldn't be Intel today and vice versa. Fanboys. Monopolies have killed the free market along with good products that used to exist 30 years ago.

To anyone saying that Intel are not feeling the squeeze because they still have a huge market share. The new XE processors are coming out with HALF the price tag, HALF. If that's not good for consumers, I don't know what is. I've used intel CPUs since 2006, with a brief stint using an fx4100 for about a month. Last year I switched back to red, unless there is a HUGE game breaker, I don't see myself shelling out for intel cpus anytime soon. Even on the laptop end, traditionally dominated by intel, the ryzen 5 H series is doing pretty good and is a worthy pick for a gaming laptop.

I would definitely like to see how these CPUs perform at different memory speeds. I would love to upgrade to an x570 and a 3600, but don't want to toss my 32gbs of ddr4 2133.

Жаль что я не владею английским. Тем не менее, это не помешало мне понять что ты, мудак проплаченный, пиздишь как дышишь. Разумеется во всяких там тестах, бенчах и т.д. ryzen обгоняет intel за счёт большего количества ядер и потоков, но как только дело доходит до игр (как раз таки единственная причина сборки пк в 80% случаев) то ryzen 7 3700x просто по королевски отсасывает у core i7 9700k, а ryzen 9 3900x тем временем, просто как ёбаный куколд стоит, смотрит на это всё и говорит: "Понял, понял... Ухожу".

Maybe the worst feature of the 3900X is "not available" or "delivery postponed". This is why I gave up and canceled my order. I'm now a happy owner of 9900KS.

waiting for the next review of the 3950 and threadshitter 3 and how its no longer for the "poor people." Furthermore, can't wait for the influencers to tell everyone how the 3900 and 3700 are so blase now that 3950 is here

Well, where I live Ryzen 7 3700X is almost the same priced as i7-9700K and Ryzen 9 3900X is 25% more expensive than i9-9900k. Which is ridiculous when everybody says that it should be cheaper.

well... depends what aspect of poverty you are talking about, for poor people from the financial perspective, or from the intellectual perspective? because buying something cheaper and better is acting smarter and buying overpriced stuff doesnt make you richer.... makes you ignorant or better say, poor from the intelectual perspective, so i guess intel is for poor people, from the intellectual perspective and im not a fan boy i never owned a amd cpu, intel my whole life since the 90s so think about that.

AMD and Intel future for as Let see If something new going present in 2 to 3 years I can't wait for 7nm move out 4nm come out be use In future Any way I bet that Computers can not started at less 16 GB of ram you going meet requirement to install in PC Desktop in future more more space for game install You going need SSD with 3TB as normal run low games probably going happen Microsoft Working at win 10 until October 2020 y they finish investment at win 10 project After October 2020 only major update patches like securities once every few months until 2025 year They don't say if someone going be release they keep secret. I bet some going be out faster new system maybe better no one know what future will be in PC We have more PC for Games then any elses People use for streaming samll devices like Fire stick Roku Apple TV Cell phone The same for web browsing on internet Today using laptops are more then PC Desktop Everything change went internet connection come power AMD years was behind today come back I wish AMD build CPU for small computer like box will not take space and not over heat fit with small components and hardware for entertainment PC Desktop !!!
