    According to CPU-Z, that's true.

    Indeed, what a fantastic steal.

    Waffles??
    Do you mean "waffle" as in "meaningless talk" ?
    Or do you mean "Wafers" as in actual silicon wafers.

    Not sure if that was sarcasm or not :) Lower prices shouldn't scare AMD. Most projections I have seen say AMD's chiplet design is vastly cheaper than Intel's monolithic designs. So I suspect AMD can get in a price war and still turn a good profit. If Zen3 is a decent improvement we could see AMD charge more than Intel which would be a little different.

    AMD shouldn´t be scared if Intel drops prices but they should be concerned...

    They are dropping prices because of AMD.
    I doubt AMD is scared or concerned.

    It's ironic, but these days Intel has taken what used to be AMD's pricing slot in the CPU markets. AMD knows that no matter how much Intel drops its prices on their current 14nm CPUs it won't affect AMD's ability to ask and demand a higher ASP than Intel is able to command. It'll stay this way until Intel is able to produce competitive performance--or better performance than AMD--in a new-architecture package that boasts similar security to what AMD is able to offer presently. Intel has it's work cut out for it, no doubt, as AMD is hot on R&D and presents a moving target for Intel these days.

    We have no idea what security AMD's products really offer. Their market share is too low for targeted attacks to be financially viable. We won't see the real level of security until AMD gains enough market share to actually threaten Intel. That's when security researchers will really start to dig in.

    Great prices here in the US right now , $419US Dollars everywhere ( newegg , amazon , bhp , etc... ) and $399US in microcenter for the 12 core 24 threads 3900x. I'm so tempted to get me a 3900x lol , must resist , since we are in 24/7 lockdown at home here i combat anxiety and boredom with doing some competitive overclocking of my hardware for hwbot points. Also lots and lots of gaming.
