    Why do I want one, even though I don't need it and more to the point I can't afford it? :rolleyes:

    I know what you mean! The 2050X seems like a more rounded CPU than my 1950X thanks to the improved boost freq. Not that it's worth me switching - I'll wait and see what they do with threadripper next year!

    When I start to think about what Zen 2 will bring, I'm having to stop myself from dribbling with anticipation. Oh dear.... a 3700X maybe, for me anyway :oops:

    It's £829.99 on Amazon UK, though no stock has hit any UK retailer yet, got mine on preorder ;)

    Edit:

    Just got a notification from Amazon: " "AMD YD295XA8AFWOF Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 16 Core/21 Thread/180w/40mb Cache CPU - Black"
    Estimated arrival date: September 28 2018 - November 09 2018
    "

    I am disappoint! :(

    Kinda cool it comes in black though! :confused:

    You guys dunno how good you have it, a 1950X goes for about 870 USD here (converted from local $), no price listing for the 2950X though, guess it's not here yet.

    Really? How much are you selling yours for? I see a lot of peeps selling off their GTX1070Ti/GTX1080/GTX1080Ti in my neck of the woods for a fair bit of discount, so tempted to build myself a kickbutt rig......even though I'd be using last gen parts.
