4.) If you choose to do MCE oc'ing for the 10980xe, you might want to compare it to an oc'ed 3950X to 3970X
5.) I am seriously wondering about the upcoming 3990X 64c/128t - at 280w (before oc) ? Time to design a seriously big CPU loop over the holidays

Ever been to B&H? Their store in NYC sits right next to a bank which they also own. Makes it quick to do deposits into their high interest earning savings accounts.

Just kidding about the bank, mind you. "No you're not, you tell everyone that."

Don't confuse 10980X with 9900K. Yes, 10980X can clock higher than Zen2 but its not a gaming monster because of ot Mesh architecture and not Ring Bus like 9900K.

It's a gamingmonster when overclocking cpu, mesh and running 4000+ c16 tweaked with sub 400 TRFC etc.....

50ns latency is very good for gaming

I see you have an X299 board already, so you are probably the one use case where buying a 10980XE CPU makes sense.

A 9900K is still superior for purely gaming though, but I'd still recommend a Ryzen 3900X over it due to future-proofing (which you already have).

Even the most normie PC user will have a Youtube video open to watch in between loading screens, and that 2fps advantage vanishes into the ether and AMD takes the lead.
Or god forbid you record with Shadowplay.
This is true, 9900K only really makes sense if you have a 240hz monitor (like me)

I still don't understood why AMD launched sTRX4 and is promising long term support.
how sTRX4 could have long term support if 2021 is the year of DDR5?

there is no Zenith Extreme II here in europe and 3960X/3970X is not available in shops I trust

You get more gain with Ryzen 2 if you play with memory timings and high mem and fclk speeds.

I know I get gain with memoryspeed, timings and fclk. I have 3900x and x570 Taichi . The gain from stock x299 to max tweaked is more insane.
So what are you trying to explain?

Ryzen 2 is nowhere near the latency of x299, overclocked on both.
