Not sure if it much of a deal considering how scarce stock for these are.Limit of 2 Per Customer
Don't forget those pesky transaction fees unless BT/BPay
Who the hell would want to spend this kind of money on just a CPU these days…???
most everyone i know would want to. But we all "settled" for the 3600.
when you need 16c/32t for workstation but don't want to invest into TR4 or intels ever changing LGA sockets. just saying the price is up there for a reason. just a smaller market.
personally i'd go for the 3900x, more cost/value.
Yeah it's a very niche market, I do believe professionals will benefit quite a bit from quad channel + more PCIe lanes from ThreadRipper though.
As for the 3950X and even the 3900X they don't have any competitors so it's AMD's right to charge whatever they deem reasonable really.
Ryzen 4000 series are just around the corner so they should be running out the old stock.
Yeah I'm hanging out for Ryzen 4000 series but still likely looking at least October before we see them
can't believe, price jacked up to 1439….
Geez for $1299 I hope this PC comes with at least 16GB of RAM
nope, that's just for the cpu.
You do realise that this is a high end AMD computer processor with no competition from Intel. It's targeting content creators. Hence the high price.
