You are correct of course. And realistically I can expect to be on the low end of boost performance as I don't intend to upgrade my X370 CHVI MB.
But there is always that feeling, I know its inevitable, when you get a new chip and 6 months later every one is getting one a little better. (;-)
I guess it won't be as bad as getting an RTX2080, sending it back for RMA and getting it back just in time to see the release of RTX Supers. lol.
