    Oh heck, bought a 1600 AF for 95€ for a friend.
    Now, to think about, 3600 is almost double here in Spain.
    But welcomed opportunity to those who don't get a Ryzen.

    Nice. Does this mean the 4000's maybe be coming sooner than hoped??

    The 3900x looks very tempting.

    $175 for the 3600. That’s a procreating steal.


    That auto change for the explicit language I used is too funny.

    That or Zen3 is coming sooner. Not sure which way I lean as Comet Lake shouldn't be much of an improvement and Zen3 was later this year. Something is up for sure.

    These are already pretty normal prices here if u catch a sale. It's getting really hard to pass up but I already have the 1600 and 2600 in my PC's at home I'm trying to skip the 3000 series and hopefully drop 4600 or 4700 in my mobo if they're still am4

    I think this is a good sign for Zen3 AMD wants to move as much Zen2 before Zen3 drops.

    And probably will be even more cheaper after Zen3 release.:)

    I'm in the same shoes as you, and waiting for Zen3 too, and if Zen3 is really the last AM4 socket cpu family, then maybe i'm waiting for Zen4 release more because than Zen3 will be cheaper.:D

    The 2600 not the fastest cpu, true, but it isn't that slowest either so i can easily use it for 1-2 years more.

    I got the 3700X and wanted the 3950X, but i'll wait till Zen 3 as it seems to have bigger improvements.

    The 3700x is no slouch by any means. I have one myself and really love it.
