    I would wait going by AdoredTV rumour. 6 core for less than 180 AUD.

      How long will one have to wait?

        AMD to announce it on Computex Taipei 2019 event, that happens late May, and it's probably going to be a few (1-2) months before it goes into retail channel. So likely half a year from now.

          And why buy then and not wait 6 more months for better things etx

            @nikoris:

            for better things etx

            Because the improvements are not linear when it comes to processors. There are times where it actually doesn't make sense to buy a certain generation, you'd actually want to skip it entirely and aim for the next one.

            E.g first gen Ryzen users wouldn't buy a Zen+ series since the improvements made to the processor was insignificant. But going from a Zen to Zen 2 would make sense.

            And in the past when Intel had a monopoly in the CPU market, it didn't make sense for people to upgrade from Sandy Bridge to anything older than Broadwell, because of how little improvements Intel made.

          There were rumours the cpus would 'debut', whatever that could mean… At CES which is Jan 8, 2019…

        The rumour has the launch of most chips at CES (eg Jan). The APUs are set at "Q3", and the fastest 16 core chip as "May".

        If true it would be VERY early, so maybe a 'launch' but availability later.

        Or maybe the rumour is wrong.

          Those are announcement dates, which are in line with previous Ryzen launch windows. Identical cadence would put the initial product availability in March-April 2019.

          •  

            @jasswolf: True, the original Ryzen brand was Dec 2016, with availability in April. So Jan 2019 wouldn't be a shock for an announcement. It would be a shock for availability though.

            Thing to note is that they can't hang about too long between announcement and launch now though - since if they announce the leaked specs everyone stops buying Ryzen 1000 & 2000 and waits for 3000.

              @sane: The last of 1st gen was flushed out on Black Friday with that 1700x sale, and we're seeing all the 2nd gen sales now.

              I'm guessing we'll see 2600x drop below $190 through December-Jan, with massive price cuts on the 2700 ($275) and 2700x ($325).

              •  

                @jasswolf: Well, all the reasonable priced 8 cores. You can still find $400+ examples, and even a $750 on Amazon AU.

                Good ol' Australian resellers - never knowingly on the price, ever.

                I wonder how long before you can pick up a 12 core, 5Ghz, Ryzen 3700X for AU$230? At my rough calcs, that's about a 2x processing power upgrade over the 1700x

                •  

                  @sane: Considering that it'll likely have a sticker price of $500, over 18 months, if at all.

                  Look to buy in a bit under $400 IMO (eBay gift cards or Amazon Prime deals + cashback will help with this), or you might find yourself waiting 7 months after launch for a deal.

                  There might be a chance of deeper discounts if they plan to shrink the IO die in Zen 3 enough to increase from 2 chiplets per chip to 3, but that's wild speculation at this point.

  •  

    Would you run this with a 2080? why or why not?

  •  

    Can't decide on whether to get this or hold out for a good deal on the 2600x.

    If OC with watercooling on a B450 the performance difference is fairly negligible right (I've heard <5% diff) so is there any other reason one would get the 2600x over this?

    •  

      better stock cooler, adaptive voltages would save some electricity when idle.

    •  

      If same price maybe why not otherwise wouldn't the cooler and board make the total cost a lot more?

    •  

      Performance wise almost identical especially if you're overclocking on water. 2600X I believe is binned slightly higher so generally it'll do the same clocks at lower voltages.

    Anyone still waiting for their techfast build with this cpu,? I ordered mine on the 16th of Nov and they still haven't sent it..

    •  

      Rep said yesterday that alot of the RTX 2080 systems were being dispatched today so try to use the startrack tracking system to see if its been dispatched.
      Also you can directly private message him through ozbargain so that he can check whether its dispatched or close to from the queue :)

      •  

        Yeah I've been refreshing my startrak tracking and reached out on ebay but they haven't responded to my latest message, I haven't messaged them on here yet, ill give that a go thanks :)

    Bought this and Burnout Paradise Remastered was still in my cart from the deal a few weeks ago that expired. It was $15 again so I got it as well.
