My guess is fall. Because both AMD and Nvidia are releasing stuff.

Well the early year was due to the virus prices was sky high and now the new AMD gen is comming and the nvidia ampere to, you could still buy but it’s now matter of weeks


Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

Around the corner in Jan = 10 months away.

Around the corner today = 1 or 2 months.

In tech, it is ALWAYS around the corner, No matter what just released, it will soon be outperformed by the newest and greatest. 

Ok nvidia 3000 will be released, but did you know, that nvidia 4000 is coming out in only a year?

AMD 4000 is great, but Ryzen 5000 with AM5 will leave it in the dust!

 

No matter what you buy, it will always be outperformed someday.

Just enjoy your computer, and don't worry about the newest stuff that much!

There will always be a new CPU, GPU, chipset, or something coming in the next 6 months. You should buy when you need to upgrade and the price is reasonable. The only time I will wait is if a manufacture has given a release date for something that I am willing to wait for but only if they have given a date.

Exactly 576 hours, 10 minutes and 34 seconds.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Around the corner is within 3 months.

In Jan/Feb, it was perfectly fine to buy stuff. Mar-Q2 was horrible for virus reasons, and now we are within spitting distance of new GPU releases so the only thing you should really buy is used GPUs, 1080 TIs are finally dropping past 500. I've seen them go for 350, and the used market for 2080 TI has recently significantly broken from the new price. As for CPUs, not sure when we'll see actually new products
