I think you're forgetting that Intel is putting the 10980XE at $999 which is not "significantly" much more than the 3950X. Coupled with the fact that the 3950X doesn't really boost to 4.7Ghz and tops out at around 4.0 or 4.1Ghz all cores, it's going to be interesting to see how it compares with the $250 more expensive 10980XE that's on the 14++ process and is expected to do around 4.5 to 4.7Ghz all cores.


My two cents, an overclocked 10980XE vs overclocked 3950X, the 18 core 10980XE is going to be faster. Also a little more expensive though.

Yeah you ONLY need 1.7volts for 5.3G and a LN2 set-up.

highly impressive.

While I still love my 9900k for gaming which is my main task I do, the encoding I do AMD has been tempting me hard.

3950x is a productivity monster while also can hold up at the top for gaming, its a You can have your cake and eat it too cpu.

I'm still hearing people mumble "Why bother when it's still only comparable to haswell"

I take it some review mentioned this as one point for first gen Zen and now it stuck?

Anyway the 3950x looks to be a beast of a proc. Should offer the best all around performance you can get without going HEDT.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

I saw 3900X (12c AM4) advertised at US $499 ($100 off)...I guess the 3950X is making waves The reviews of the 16C 3950X imply that the upcoming 32C TR3 HEDT part should be monstrous for productivity, and - depending on mobo, bios and settings - more than capable for gaming.

Thats your conclusion??

Who in their right mind is looking at a 16c/32t CPU for gaming?

Looks like software has to catch up yet again.

They already slashed prices on the 9980, which is also more or less the 10980... only benefit to going with cascade lake at this point will be quad channel memory, pcie lanes and AVX 512. Unless you're on x299 and or need those 3 very specific things, the 10980 will be a very poor choice.

So far I think Linus, GN, and HWUB have gotten all core ocs/boosts (not sure if they were using PBO or all core manual) stable up to 4.4/4.5 on the 3950X. Zen 2 has higher IPC, I don't think 4.5 to 4.7 is going to be enough on the 10980 considering skylake's short boost duration due to massive power consumption in comparison, on top of AMD's superior SMT.

It's quite plain why Intel slashed their flagship HEDT CPU cost in HALF. Even after that they're going to have difficulty making the 10980XE look like a good (not terrible?) product.
