    What are your other options? Country of origin? Where we can see a sample of a local webshop or online retailer?
     
    I'D rather much choose B450 board&phase out 2600 with possible huge discount, it'd be more future-proof.

    Stormseeker9 reacted to mariushm in Why X570 chipset can pull 15W   
    PCI-e 4 requires more power to transmit data , just like 10 gbps ethernet requires more power compared to 1 gbps chips... today ~2-5w, used to be more... compared to <1w for 1gbps.
     
    There's more pci-e 4 lanes exposed (12) compared to previous chipsets (8 pci-e 3.0 for x470), there's some internal lanes used to connect usb 3.1 gen 2 (10g), sata, etc...
     
    Some parts of chipset are still licensed/bought from AsMedia, AMD makes chipset in-house now instead of letting AsMedia make it as TSMC
     
    TDP is 11w, with peak at 15w depending how much of stuff inside chipset is used.
     
    Previous chipsets were made at TSMC on 55nm or 40nm (i forget now, but it's on wikipedia and other places) and that's a way cheaper fabrication node BUT on 40nm+ the power would have been 20-25w. Even on 28nm TDP would have been high.
    It probably cost AMD a few million to adapt the licensed stuff to 14nm (but it made sense as it's similar to stuff in the 14nnm i/o chiplet in Ryzen cpus) and they're also using valuable 14nm wafers for a chipset... factory makes limited number of wafers each month... that explains the higher cost.
    If a gpu chip is more profitable...you lose money by making chipsets.
     
    x570 boards are more expensive also because for some they have to increase pcb layers from 4 to 6 and on highest end you may see 8-10 layers.
    pci-e 4 requires better routing of traces between cpu and pci-e slots so more layers helps with that.
    Also bigger vrm (more phases, mosfets, capacitors), big heatsink on chipset , fan that is point of failure so price includes the higher cost of warranties over 3-5y boards are guaranteed for...

    @Lima.7/7 zen 2 will be launched, alongside new Navi cards competing with the 2060/2070. 
    I would at least wait till then, benchmarks will become available quite quickly after launch. 
     
    Make your decision after that point is my advice

    Get a B450 board like Asrock B450M Pro4. Not much more than the A320 board but it has better support for Ryzen third generation, just check the manufacturer’s site for the BIOS update process. 
     
    A320 works, it’s just a dead end from an upgrade perspective, with fewer features, and not much cheaper.

    Stormseeker9 reacted to jdubya421 in Apple is misundertanding the "pro" market   
    This again. There is a whole nother thread dedicated to this and people still just don't understand. I am one of those "pros" that uses computers like this. The computer on my desk cost upward of 40k and has nearly 1TB of RAM. I actually need those kind of resources to do my job. There is a market of people/companies who buy computers like this. If you go to Dell's website and spec a similar computer it actually costs more. The RAM options on the 40-60k computers cost ~40k alone. The pro market that this is aimed for is far far above what Linus' audience is. 
     
    Edit: I will fully concede about the monitor stand - I can't find a way to defend that.
