That's easy: most of us Ryzen guys already had 8 core CPUs from previous generations. I have a 1700 in one rig, and a 2700x in the other. So buying another 8 core would have been a much smaller upgrade.

The other things are availability and confusion. You can't find a 3700x anywhere, and the fact that there are TWO new 8-core variants with different TDPs is going to confuse a lot of people when they DO become widely available.
