X399 pretty much murders X299 in terms of value, a 16 core 1950X is $700 at retail

The problem is I am stuck on micro ATX by choice with a cerberus and a mATX X399 board is like $300+ so even if a 1950X is dirt cheap that's still $1000.  How much better is a 1950X vs 7940X?

Are you sure you want a high core count CPU in such a small case/space?

The 1950X comes soldered so it has a thermal advantage for cooling, and it's mostly about the 2 extra cores and 64 PCI-e lanes.


You could also get a $400 1920X 12 core if you don't need 14/16

Yeah basically 7940X $1000 + $200 MOBO

1950X $700 + $330 MOBO + $100+(?) new AIO since my EVGA CLC 240 wont work with that?

I think you can expect a higher all-core overclock from that 7940X.

Or do you think it is wise to wait until basin lake is launched for X299 sales?  or does that no matter since CPUs don't really loose that much value?

It really all depends on what you’re gonna use the computer for, and how much you feel like spending. In general though, thread ripper is better performance per dollar by a long shot. And EVGA should sell an adapter

You'd want a TR4 specifc cooler with a large base plate for sure

If you're sticking to the small form factor case I'd go for threadripper as it has a 15-20C cooling advantage due to being soldered

What are you doing that a 12 core 1920X isn't good enough?

Plus you can still just throw in a 32 core CPU in the far future, probably just don't overclock the 32 core CPU in that future.

I think PCI-e bandwidth may become an issue on mainstream platforms if you're going to use a bunch of high performance GPUs.

Probably until 2020 like AM4, at the very least it will get Ryzen 3000 sometime next year

The problem is I am stuck on micro ATX by choice with a cerberus and a mATX X399 board is like $300+ so even if a 1950X is dirt cheap that's still $1000.  How much better is a 1950X vs 7940X?

https://geizhals.de/asrock-x399m-taichi-90-mxb7b0-a0uayz-a1778443.html?hloc=at&hloc=de

 

The HEDT Boards are all about that price due to complexity. X299 Boards aren't that much cheaper.

 

PS: the Ryzen THreadripper 2950X is also only ~150€ more...

if this is the case should I just buy a 1920X and then upgrade to next gen if you think it's coming out 2019?

Probably depends on AMD's "Rome", no real idea on a release date just yet, but just don't plan to overclock the 24/32 core CPUs in a normal motherboard..

Well I am going X399M, got a decent deal on the one and only Asrock X399M for $260 shipped and even came with a 128GB SSD lol

supposedly the boards ships with the latest BIOS so if I wanted to go TB2 it shouldn't be an issue

AMD provides a Astek mount for all TB/TB2 products 

 

I guess my options are $900 2950X, $700 1950X, wait until Oct 29 and get $650 2920X or just go $450 2920X

More of the X399 boards if not all should have USB bios flashing so you can recover from bad bios updates or update without a CPU anyways.

Probably just grab the 1920X, should be fine for your needs and is low priced for the high core count.
