    AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT

    We determine if the new chips are worth the premium.

    Presumably that's the more mature process allowing higher quality silicon down the bins and therefore lower voltage to frequency? Something like that.

    Depends how old their 3900X silicon is, recently made chips should get a benefit from the new process across the board. Just the XT gets a higher peak speed.

    I'm hoping this drops the X prices down a bit further in time for an upgrade.

    Amazon 3800X is £280 at Amazon, at the moment. I've snapped one up.

    Re: AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT

    I quickly checked the price of my 3900X for the inevitable buyer's remorse.

    Actually, not too bad. I've had several months of being able to run three VMs at once whilst also using the host OS without any resource issues.

    My i5 struggled with just the one VM whilst using the host OS.

    Re: AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT

    If you can't get ahold of the X then ya this is OK, but otherwise if it's even a few quid more, it's not worth it.

    Then again I think the 3800X is a weird part anyway. Why would you pay so much over the 3700X for such a tiny difference in performance.

    Not so much that they aren't ready, but that they have made a conscious decision to delay them. Sales and competition have respectively been higher and lower than anticipated.

    Let's hope AMD aren't going to discontinue the non-XT series, as this would be a kick in the head
    for those planning to bag a bargain, and forcing the purchase of the more expensive (but without bundled cooler) XT chips.

    I see nothing that makes me want to buy a new AMD mobo and CPU, instead of a 9600k @ £185

    You can still buy 1000 series ryzens, the 3000X ones will be around for a while yet
