When is this going to be updated with the new ryzen 3? :) I'm wondering which processor is the best value/performance.

There's a small mistake in the description of the new AMD processors -> manufacturing process is listed as "7nm LP GlobalFoundries".

Thats nothing check out the process listed for the Xeon W-3175X it says 14nm Glofo. LOL didn't know Global Foundries started making chips for Intel. Come on guys fix your information. Although I do agree with the chip choices at least until Zen2's TR4 chips come out where the Xeon W-3175X will likely be usurped by AMD's 32core (Maybe 64?) threadripper based on Zen2 .

I think some pricing changes need to be put into this copy/paste article. Amazon and Newegg have been selling the R5 2600, for $129.99-$139.99, for quite some time now. The R7 2700 should probably be in the sub $200 list now, given that it has been under $200 for a good while now.

I see the i9-10980XE as pretty useless. Depending on need, I would instead choose either the Ryzen 3950x or Threadripper 3960x. I can't think of any use case that wouldn't be better served by one of these two processors.

peformance per dolar 2200 stays on top because of price cuts, But if you have 10$ to add, 3200 is faster so you just have a nice options to exact match your budget.
another 15$ will give you 2400 and another $15 is 3400.

Boy that AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is sweeet! i Edit 4k video on Davinci no problem. smooth as can be. 3-4 min music videos render in seconds to a minute. Obviously there's other components playing a part in this awesome performance but still, sold CPU

Weird that 10980xe and dual channel CPUs mande into the list, but the dual Xeon E5 2696v3 are left out. Its a 18/36 like the 10980xe, with all core turbo of 3.8ghz after turbo boost unlock. Running 36/72 até 3.8ghz and octo Channel memory, they offer by far the best gang for the buck workstation power. One can find Supermicro mobos for them, or brand new chinese mobos, with ecc ddr3 support. Total system cost way below 5800x builds, Effective Power sits a bit below the TR 3970x and quite above 5950x and 10980xe
