well the gaming performance wasn't where i'd hoped it would be, and showing that there really is a 15% single core IPC uplift everywhere else especially makes the gaming performance disappointing but the 3700X is a colossal jump over my 1600 and overall I don't think i'll regret pressing the order button just now.
I mean I certainly wasn't ever going to go out and spend twice as much to get the 9900k and a motherboard when I already have a motherboard that supports Ryzen 3000.
I guess all we can hope is that there are optimizations still to be done for gaming. I mean in basically every other way the 3700X is matching the 9900K despite its clock deficit so it's still extremely impressive, i just wish it applied to gaming.
PCCG, Mwave and Scorptec all have these up for sale right now for the Australians btw and prices are surprisingly good. Only $519 for the 3700X(About $360USD) so there's no ridiculous Australia tax, just the extra distribution cost.
