    I should prepare my wishlist for review.

    Not bad. 9900k still holds 500$ price mark.

    Will there be any extra performance with a x570 chipset I wonder? HAPPY FRIDAY

    Considering that x570 chipset requires more power, I presume that operating I/O chip inside CPU in PCIe 4.0 mode will result in higher power draw, more heat and less remaining current for CPU cores.
    I just wonder by how much.

    I would pretty much only expect more with higher memory speeds. Ryzen CPUs seem to love fast RAM. Most will not need PCI-E 4.0 for a long time.

    Why is everyone saying this is good? Wasn't the 3800X supposed to smoke 9900K? Remember that at this point the 9900K can be found for less than 500€ (472€ shipping included in my country) and that a decent motherboard is going to probably cost less for the 9900K compared to the 3800K, or at the very least the same, if the 3800X is going to cost only 50-100€ less i'm not sure it's such big of a deal.

    So, it is no big deal to pay $50~100 for each important component of equivalent performance?

    Equivalent? It doesn't seem to me they're actually equivalent, they're similar, but not equivalent besides 50-100€ less for the CPU but an equivalent motherboard will probably cost more for the AMD configuration this time, so... that 50-100€ of save might actually be more 50 than 100€, still for a lower performing part, which probably consumes less i give you that, but the 9900K is overall still faster.

    I want to see how the 3600x compares to my 1st gen 1600 chip in 1440p gaming with a 1080ti before I decide on a purchase.

    I already feel that extra MB cost... Really... I looked at my MB yesterday... Knowing that it is to stay in that PC as I install 3900X :D
    Nobody who does not need X570 is forced to buy it. People can just use X470 if they have use for it. Or B450 which are rather cheap.

    Too many choices and you speak as if people were forced into X570.

    Not forced, but if you buy a high end CPU you might want a high mobo too, and x470 is high end, but of the previous generation, i guess x570 brings something more to the table than just pcie 4 doesn't it?

    Not really. Most of people do not need anything extra. And of someone needs them, then that someone does not have trouble paying for them.
    (And it would not be felt as loss of investment.)

    Leaks showing 3600x beating the 8700k. If true thats a nice upgrade.

    Just did Geekbench on my 5 years old 4790k... I'm not impressed at all.

    Oh you're one of those people who are so stuck on intel you think the 3800x requires a x570 board. I'm so sorry for your mindset.

    All that shows is how intel hasn't advanced their IPC in quite some time. As well as stated in the article the bench was done with low frequency memory. Also stated in the article that even an intel 9900k with better memory gets a better single-threaded score, and it's already known (unless something changed in Zen2) that AMD loves faster memory.

    It's pretty sad though, you can't even find a quad-core 8 threaded processor that is new from Intel anymore, so i guess your older processor is better then current quad-core processors for intel....talk about backwards process'.

    Also, your multi-score is pretty horrible, but being the fact it's 5 years old, it makes sense.

    Not everything is about single-threaded scores, bud.

    Why buy a 3800X then? I mean you can get a x470 no problems, but what's the point, if i buy a new system for example, i'd like to have the best and newest hardware at that point.

    Never said that, i said that since i'm building a new PC i'd rather buy something newer, possibly with more features and upgrade old ones, than buy older hardware.

    You're comparing an overclocked CPU to ones running stock speeds. That's not exactly a valid comparison unless you're looking at performance increases over stock.
