Seems to be a metric ton of these on Ebay, and the same amount of idiots prepared to buy them.

Hard to see the point of these CPUs with the decent amount of 1st gen 6 and 8 core Ryzens in the 2nd hand market. Heck, my home server has a 1600X I paid 80 euros for almost a year ago.

A lot of people don't want to buy second-hand CPUs. On top of that, Zen 2 is a much better gaming architecture than Zen and Zen+, and the out of the box clocks will make this a better all-rounder than the Ryzen 5 1600

Because these have better IPC, so for "right now" gaming they are often going to be faster dude.

I know what you mean though. I wouldn't personally choose one of these, but they are going to be used a lot. Remember, when I say "gaming" I actually refer to "Stupid trendy games that are crap but played by lots of young people". In which case? these CPUs are more than enough.

Which is good, because it brings the system prices down. It should now be possible to build a decent gaming rig for under £500.

These look amazing for gamers, but yeah can currently get brand new both a 1600AF and B450 motherboard for under £150, it's a tighter offer for those of us just looking for a lockdown work upgrade for now.

Yeah, but if you can wait for B550, you will have another generation of upgrade room. B450 won't support Zen 3.

To be honest, since some contracts are just paused, once business is back up and running fully again I'll probably be looking to shift more towards a 12-core by the time the 4000 series is out, so I'll probably just end up swapping both together, I don't much mind a board swap and it makes selling easier.

Even so, if that a definite or are they just covering their backs for the boards with 8MB UEFI's? The graph AMD provided also claims 300 series boards don't support 3000 series motherboards, but of course that's usually dependant on the UEFI size.
