I thought they were reasonable prices.

The 12600 looks the pick of the bunch for gaming, and at that price is better value than the current AMD offering.

However, memory prices for DDR5 are just insane, and until the cheaper boards appear, a full rig is still significantly cheaper with AMD.

Right now its looking like DDR5 availability, not the prices, will put a hold on most wanting to do a high end build with the 12700/12900 CPU's.


I'd love to have a play with these new cores but I'm resigned to waiting until at least Q2 2022 before doing so.


Should know about the Ryzen 3D cache thing by then as well.

I hope it's not smoke and mirrors because the 12600 could be a real gem.

Still have a feeling that a 5950x will spank their top offering, but that said it is cheaper so...

Good you can get DDR4 boards pretty dang cheap, too. That's really cool.

Prices are good. Finally some decent CPU competition, AMD will be revising Ryzen prices soon enough.

I hope they do and don't act overly sure of themselves. I'd love for AMD to continue to try and cater to both the lower end market and the high end.
