    Newegg and B&H have the 3950x but over MSRP.

    Here's the new AMD Ryzen / Navi - Xbox Series X - it looks more like a "StretchBox"...

    As Austin said, "...Microsoft built a PC"; "...it's just a PC..."

    Xbox Series X: Are You SERIOUS?

    Microsoft just surprised announced the next gen Xbox Series X.


    And, I thought I posted this video already....

    When Ryzen met OSX..you get a Hackintosh and YOU get a Hackintosh..and..

    Xmas Joy with the new 5500xt (and 5600xt?)...future APU's??

    RX 5500 XT Review - Is 1080p still relevant?

    Given that 7nm silicon is constrained - too many 7nm products need production time - if you want the latest 7nm GPU from AMD, there's gonna be a "small" surcharge required over the normal price / performance value.

    AMD's not giving these 5500xt's away any time soon, so at these prices I'd investigate RX590, RX580, Vega 56's and Vega 64's while they are still plentiful and cheap - new or used.

    Jayz Two Cents throws in on the 5500xt pricing...among other observations...

    Is the RADEON 5500XT worth the price?

    Wendell covers a lot the other reviewers haven't, good perspectives...

    2950x CB20 6938 vs 3950x CB20 9047 performance report, followed by a 3970x CB20 18237:

    After stress testing I decided to compare the 3950X to my outgoing 2950X. I didn't expect this level of improvement. Both are on auto. I also tested in some real world testing with HandBrake and added in my old OCed 6800K. Average encode speed: 14.4 FPS (6800K) | 31.5 FPS (2950X) | 41.7 FPS (3950X)

    $1,772 for 3960X and $2,525 for 3970X here home (cheapest store). And more than enough chips. But none of the cheaper 3950X ($997). Probably a main reason we have enough TR chips... The awful prices who beat everything Intel has ever demanded. The most expensive 3970x is adverticed at +$3400o_O

    If no one buys - if the stock sits on the shelves and they begin to gather dust the prices will eventually drop to MSRP, but until then short stock and higher than MSRP prices will be the norm until production volume matches demand.

    At 799 if they include the game bundle it may be a deal. Ebay store prices to me do not count, nor outside vendors. I want MSRP and at an authorized dealer.

    Watched it earlier this morning. Pretty cool, but he could only get a 1C reduction. But he is going to check height tolerances and possibly mill the cold plate for better contact. I also wouldn't be surprised if he created a bare die mounting mechanism to ensure even force across the PCB and that would still allow full contact with the die.
