This is just an absolute destruction over what now remains a wasteland with no Intel in sight to even compete.

The 3950X is almost a year old and not even an 8C upcoming Rocket Lake will dethrone its workload compute. This is indeed an embarrassing scenario where a new arch. from Intel, can't even compete with their rival's previous gen. All those years of coining in the big bucks. And totally underestimating AMD's potential.

Let the years role on. 5800X for me soon. Can't wait!

I'm sufficiently hyped, and more importantly, strapped with enough cash the pick up a 5900x (70mb cache or die!) and a new RTX 3090 (once available).

But the thing that has me down is this is the last gen on this socket, so no future upgrades.

If it weren't for that, I'd have no hesitation.

Then again, you could also look it as a refined socket, if that holds any weight.

Thoughts?
