    We can probably expect amd do the same with zen4. Cpus globaly will be more expensive. We cant catch a break. :(

    Not a big deal, a CPU will last well over 8 years these days.

    It's only a problem for those buying every generation... well it isn't, cuz apparantly they have money to blow.

    Market will say otherwise.

    US market already predicting slow down in hiring, inflation and higher interests rates mean people will borrow and spend LESS. Economy is going to tigthen up.

    Intel, AMD, Nvidia and other tech companies reaped hybrid work from home, PC sales boomed and these companies TOOK all the profits from miners and consumers trying to stay relevant and keep their jobs.

    After this, I predict stay-cation will be the next boom because ppl are fed up being locked up and need REAL WORLD to take a break from the Virtual World. Even if going nearby to other cities or outdoor places.

    Spending will be hard goods now, less tech so suck it... Yeh, the portfolio will suffer but I don't enjoy profiting off people's misery so let it be. Those high tech crooks over earned when they did.

    8 years is a bit of a strech. Thats a 4770/4790k today so try pairing the 3080 with those cpus, it would be bottleneck fest.

    Increasing prices during an economic crisis, might not be the wisest move.

    "Hey, we have a 9% boost for you. At 10 to 20% increased price. How many do you want?" -- Intel sales person

    Honestly, they're making millions and billions every year, and when they have to swallow price increases one time, they don't. How should one have any sympathy with those companies at all?
    Same AMD and Nvidia, they all had major profits, of which none end up having positive impact for the computer DIY business in general or the consumer. And then they want us to have "brand loyality"... yeah right.

    technical-temps.png Well if AMD go the same route it makes it easier to avoid upgrading to Zen 4 or Intel. I was looking at 12700K if AMD couldn't provide a 8-core chip that wasn't an inferno but it will be OK to sit on 5600 for a while.

    edit

    Seriously what is up with AMDs 8-core parts when it come to power/thermals. 12 and 16 core are nice.

    Something tells me increasing prices on the brink of worldwide recession and austerity measures is not the brightest idea. Then again, being out of touch is pretty much a headline of the tech industry. Genuinely curious how this will work out for them.

    That's only a temporary problem, thus not really a problem.

    With the way inflation is and the pending food chain issues. I would not be shocked if computers move back into the optional category for many. Many will do everything from their phone.

    A good option for many people that want basics machines (Desktops or Laptops) is the refurbished market, it is growing again with a lots availability from brands like Lenovo, HP, Toshiba, Dell... Grade A machines with warranty can have some great prices nowadays.

    In performance terms, yes. In logevity terms, maybe now. Pushing them at small nodes to power and thermal limits as they are won't end well...

    My 2700x bottlenecked the piss out of my 6800xt.

    If your playing 3440x1440 or higher, you can definitely get away with it.

    I had a 4790k recently i sold.

    And it could maintain 80-100fps 1080p in most titles with my 6800xt. But cpu usuage
    was high as hell 85-95% in most new titles.




    As much as I want to get AM5, I think im gonna get a 5900x or 5800x3d.
    My 5600x feels the strain good to push 144fps in games my 6800xt is not struggling.

    I finally replaced my trusty 4790k because of lag spikes in some AAA games. The overall average FPS was still fine though. I gave that PC away with an RX580 and it's still in gaming use because it's still a pretty good CPU, 8 years later.

    A 6-core 12400 is a pretty solid gaming deal @ under $200. I saw the 5600x selling for that low too, last week. I think a decent 6 core is all we need for now and both of those kick ass at gaming.

    Hey, don't talk bad about my 4790K, it might hear you.
