Some EU stores have dropped Zen4 prices. And now Newegg has done the same on the USA.
A 7700x for the same money as a 5800X3D.
Still an expensive downgrade.
If those were the launch prices, AMD would be doing much better even with expensive motherboards(to some extent).
However, i see no reason to buy any AM5 CPU or RPL if you have Ryzen 5000 or Alder lake, at least until X3D comes out.
What's the current memory stability testing approach? A night of memtest86?
I've just upgraded my r5 1600 (running at 3.9) to a second hand 5600x I got for 150 EUR (prices here are a bit higher here in southeastern EU) on an asrock x370 gaming X and it looks like the memory compatibility skyrocketed.
Previously I had a 2*8 Corsair LPX vengeance 3000 C15 kit I used at 2933 and then 2866 due to stability reasons. Then I migrated to a 32 GB kit of 2 Kingston Hyper X Fury 16GB DDR4 3600Mhz HX436C18FB4/16 dimms which only ran on 3200.
On the 1600 putting them both resulted in Jedec 2133 speeds and now on 5600x they seem to start up fine on 3200 16-18-18-36 but id like to do proper stability testing as so far I had time to run Prime95 small fft (which wouldn't show anything ) and the aida64 benchmark and haven't encountered stability problems when using the pc.
Zen 1 was horrible with memory Zen 2 was only marginally better and Zen 3 was pretty good over all. My 1600x never could run my garbage Hynix memory at 3200 and my 3700x would but not at XMP ratings. My 5700x ram it in its sleep though I only left it in for a few days to sate my curiosity.

Well I finally updated my bios on my Asus CHVII 470x and I finally replaced the 2700x with a 5800x. OK now I have everything on auto except my ram I'm running 3200 with fast timings with 1.40 on ram voltage and 1.12 on SOC I ran Memtest 2000% and got 0 errors & the ram is at 40C temp. Here is my timings what do you think? I'm running 16GB of G. Skill Flare X and wondering am I leaving anything on the table with my setup of the ram. I love the low latency everything is really snappy wich is why I didn't push ram up more bandwidth I went with tight timings instead. Also my ram is rated at CL14, can I drop the CL down? I know enough to get into trouble but don't know everything and I know geardown has something to do with that CL timing. Peace & Thanks .....
Thank you, I really appreciate I thought there was a tab for the pictures but ...... anyhow thanks.
No one hey? Not looking for pat on the back serious about the timings and anything else about the ram.
Looks pretty good to me, much tighter timings than mine.
Ya I forgot to mention that my ram is the G. Skill Flare X kit also. Only one lower than me that I can see and thats tCKE you have 8 mine is at 9. Thanks for replying, appreciate.
