  1. Cheapest 580's apart from this one in the UK are around £140 right now. This one is £125. It's even worse in the US, most 580's are $160 there. This RX 580 is as cheap as any RX 570 in the UK right now.
  2. That is absolute madness. Don't know what ASUS ate for breakfast this morning..since when are they ever generous??? Anyways, here it is. Not much stock left so get this ridiculous deal while you can. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071NS93PH?tag=pcp0f-21&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1
  3. I am expecting them to compete actually. I just have a sneaky feeling for them. They said double the performance of Gen11 is what Gen12 will bring. Gen11 is near Vega Graphics so.. Whether that'll translate as you go up the tiers remains to be seen. But I expect them to at least be able to offer good products in the midrange to compete against so-called 'Ampere' and also Full fat Navi (RDNA 2.0). Not sure they'll top the charts, but I'm expecting them to at least be in the conversation.
  4. I had the 1050ti for my FX 9590 build too, only just upgraded a few days ago to 3900x + Radeon VII. Only reason I bought it was because the cryptocurrency situation ruled out an RX 570 for me at that time.
  5. 1050ti comes to mind but that wasn't as disastrous as the 1650 was.
  6. Oh no..you didn't. NO!!!! Another fell into the trap. You should have bought the RX 570. I feel sorry for you
  7. Yes, but 3950x does nearly everything the 10980XE does. That's what the 3950x is for. Threadripper is in a league of it's own, and it's not targeted at us in particular. It's targeted at people who don't care about the price and where as Linus said, time is money. And the 3960x and 3970x tend to offer more performance in those multicore workloads than maybe people would have been expecting. Rather than the 25-30% higher speeds we'd expect over the 2990WX, we're seeing 50%+. And a lot of the issues that 2nd gen Threadripper had are gone. I think that deserves a price bump, especially given that it's targeted at those people where price is irrelevant.
  8. 3600 has no competition for gaming. That's cause the 9600k and 9400f have one big flaw which is their lack of hyperthreading, meaning they stutter in some titles, and that will only get worse as time goes on. The 3600 doesn't have those issues. So yes, at lower price points AMD can't be beaten.
  9. Can we just take a moment..especially at the first graph. 32 cores beating the 9900k in two of these gaming tests, absolutely hilarious.
  10. Uh...not looking great, at least in the UK anyways: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/amd-ryzen-9-3950x-sixteen-core-4.7ghz-socket-am4-processor-retail-cp-3bc-am.html I bought a 3900x a few days ago after waiting months for the 3950x, cause I saw threads on many different sites reporting that there was supply issues for it. Don't regret it. Used the extra money to get a new phone and a new mouse instead.
  11. If you want something to treat yourself and just splash the cash then Threadripper 3000 might be your CPU. Won't give you any extra gaming performance..but multicore performance is on another planet. It'll be launching tomorrow, so if you really have a hunger for building a new PC..I think Threadripper 3000 fills that perfectly.
  12. Yes bought from both and had no issues. They are trustworthy.
  13. I'd say there's 3 choices to consider under $200 for a Ryzen 9: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/McfFf7/asus-prime-x570-p-atx-am4-motherboard-prime-x570-p https://pcpartpicker.com/product/whMTwP/asus-tuf-gaming-x570-plus-atx-am4-motherboard-tuf-gaming-x570-plus https://pcpartpicker.com/product/nHxbt6/gigabyte-x570-aorus-elite-atx-am4-motherboard-x570-aorus-elite There's also the wifi versions of the TUF and the Elite if you need it. These boards are the 3 best in terms of VRM temps under $200. They are all great choices.
  14. From Komachi, who is a well-known leaker. When translated he says: "Renoir Mobile APU" is compatible with LPDDR4X-4266 and 12CU (13CU?) Vega Graphics, so I think it's worth the wait. The number of CPU cores will also increase.'
  15. Rubbish VRM's on the low-end x570 boards. The VRM's are garbage until you get to the UNIFY and ACE which are $300-ish. The UNIFY is good for the price if you want a board with no rgb. The ACE is okay..but VRM's get beaten out slightly by the Hero, Master etc.. And the godlike is beaten in every single aspect pretty much by the Aorus Xtreme so..
