If, and that’s a big IF, these prices would be correct, then they are extremely good. 3700X for £280? With 12C/24T, seems a bit too good to be true in my eyes.

If these prices do turn out to be final, the UK pricing must be excluding VAT. No chance that top CPU is less than £500!
Still though, 5GHz on a 16C32T? Sign me up!

Yeah besides all the other holes in this leak and past similar leaks mentioned (There's quite a lot) we have two massive outliers, "Ryzen 3 3300G" and "Ryzen 5 3600G". We know for a fact the Ryzen 3000G series are 12nm Zen+/Vega based parts, not 7nm Ryzen2/Navi, and so certainly not 6/8 core parts.

It's every bit as improbable as AMD releasing a 5960x competitor for £280. That would make it 1/3 of the price of the 5960x.

Yet they did it.

I know it sounds too good to be true (and believe me I'm the most cynical suspicious chap you'll ever meet) but to AMD it's just silicon. The reason TR is so expensive is because it's 4 quite large dies, regardless of core count. It's also a big chip, and a massive socket. I guess AMD are just selling silicon, regardless of the core count with Ryzen.

However, being real? this is what *should* happen in the computing world. When something costs less to make the price should not go up. It should remain the same, or slightly more, but you should get much more for your cash. Not continual refreshes of a quad core CPU for the same price.

The entire market is becoming stale because poser grade set in. It never used to be like that. All of a sudden you've got rich people now wanting gaming PCs and before you know it the prices are insane.

I was talking to my mother about it the other day. I can buy a chicken for about £2.80 from Asda, right. For the two breasts my butcher charges £7, and the wings, thighs and legs used to go in the bin. Now all of a sudden 6 chicken wings is about £6 from a restaurant with some sauce spread across the top ffs.

Yeah. AMD also confirmed that there was no APU version of Mattisse with an 8c CPU chiplet + a GPU chiplet. I don't expect Zen 2 APUs until 2020, or at a best late 2019. Even then I expect the CPU to be monolithic, single die.

And you are right, the 3000-series APUs are all 12nm Ryzen 2nd Gen so far. That said, those parts are all mobile SKUs. No desktop versions of those yet.

I really hope their 16 core part is compatible with X470 boards that have good VRM's like the CH7.

I only just upgraded to 1700 chip and stuff today all worked out the box even the ram was fine 3200 but these newer chips coming seem a bit crazy do I need more cores Idk but maybe things will change over time with people having more cores now.

Intel are in trouble if they don't keep up I feel, but it's a good thing and competition is good for all of us but Intel need to drop there prices they are still too high.

I reckon they will, I've always said top X470 boards received 2 4+4 Pin EPS for this exact reason

I have to say the more I see on this the more I'm considering joining the red team on the CPU front
