Yes but when are the XTR models arriving?
How about XTRE? XTREM? XTREME? No wait, that sounds like Intel refreshing their Skylake for the 10th time on 14nm.
do you have an intel chip in your computer?
because if you do, it would be quite the hypocrisy to point your finger at amd for copying the business strategy of the company you support
and if you don't, you're still complaining about having a choice between amd and intel, instead of just having intel as your only efficient option.
theres always that last option of entering that field and contributing to the innovation of these products. but we all know these forums are filled with copy paste benchmarkers and gamers, not many engineers. people who provide useful roles in the technology area cant spend hours on these forums debating with casual users who dont appreciate the amount of work that goes into developing "new" technologies. how many people have complained about intel for years, and still go and buy their processors. most people don't understand simple economics of supply and demand either. same reason apple can increase the iphone price, people don't understand what voting with their wallet means.
My .02.... If you have a good 3900x/3800x/3600x sample now, don't waste a second thought on the xt.
100 mhz bumpity and you have to roll silicon lottery dice again.
For everyone just now buying into Zen 2, it's a nice little bump.
I have a launch 3600X.. if the 3800XT is actually 4.2ghz base clock then I'm buying that to be the permanent cpu in my X370 motherboard. 400mhz higher base clock and 300mhz higher max boost is pretty darn nice. My 3600X sits 150mhz below that 3800Xt's base clock under all core loads.
im disaapointed with 3600xt boost. No point to swap from my normal 3600. Was looking at that 4.7 boost and was seriously thinking about change and leave it at stock with such boost. Half a GHz from my 3600 is cool, 300MHz not so much.
