Well those leaks showed presentation material wich is real and confirms the existance of a 16core but AMD can always chose to launch or not a product a the last second so yeah i don't see the contradiction here . AMD chose to not launch the 16cores part that doesn't make those leaks any less true !
My only point was that we shouldn't take leaks and rumors as facts. I could also be very wrong, they may announce it at the very end of the event. The leaked material looked weird to me, like it had been poorly edited.

I get what you saying but those leaks comes from Videocardz you can be 200% sure those are as real as it gets !

I mean they have to finish moving their Threadripper Gen 2 CPUs

still cheaper than the threadripper 16 cores $849, i'm glad it was not $999. That means threadripper wont be as expensive as i thought it out to be, however it will be much more expensive than the 2xxx series.

It's an utter bargain compared to 9920x too.

That hail mary at the end, everyone had written off the possibility of a 3950X announcement that far in.

I humbly stand corrected. I was wrong.
I knew they would keep the best for last, that is usually protocol to end the show perfect. Remember that the tdp is based on the base clock frequency, so reason 3950x 3.5ghz 105w. That is still impressive, just for comparison.

Ryzen 2950XAugust 31, 2018, US $89916 (32)3.54.4180w

Ryzen 3950XJuly, 7 2019, US $749 16 (32)3.54.7105w

Ryzen 3900XJuly 7, 2019, US $49912 (24)3.84.6105w

Look at how much Intel was charging for a 16-core Xeon just 2 years ago ...

$749 is fantastic for such a compute monster .... and also very likely to slowly drop in time.
The only sad part is the wait until September-October.

Time to get the 12 cores and not look back. 3950x is far away. They will hand pick all 3950x to be very binned silicons hence 105w.

Regular 5700X looks ok for 450 when compared to 2070. On the other hand the lower part should have been 350. Tops.
But my biggest issue is that the chip is barely larger than RX 580, yet the prices have almost doubled. I know 7nm is more expensive than 14/12 from GloFo, but not 2X more.

R.I.P Intel's whole HEDT lineup.
Quad DDR4, more PCIE lanes and AVX512. Remember HEDT is for productivity, not just for gaming.

Performance also sets the price, not just die area. Compare with Pentium 66 MHz. :D

Anyway, do we really need more comments about what the price should have been? I think AMD knows business better than most of us individuals. ;)

Still RIP.

Price difference is too great.
You could buy TWO 16-core AMD computers for the price of ONE 16-core Intel.

(Or almost 3x 12c vs 1 12c Intel)

Oh, and Threadripper will come... probably announced later in the year, after 3950X launch, and completely smash anything Intel HEDT has.

Navi is overpriced, like the Nvidia lineup!

But, it was somewhat expected that AMD would take advantage of Nvidia raising prices to raise their prices as well!

This release will not create the desired impact and will not put Nvidia on the alert, but at least now there is an alternative.

AMD didn´t say anything about TDP, which probably means that the 12nm Nvidia continues to be significantly more efficient!

I realized from these slides and performance graphs that the few years old RX480 Video card with 8GB I have is 1/3 the performance of Nvidia's top of the line, and was 1/10 the price.

The processor I have right now is 80% of the performance of intels' best, and was $40.

The conventional logic of upgrades is dead.

Two to 4 years difference isn't squat, unless you're talking AMD; they've came a long way in 4 years.

I replayed Crysis last week with all the eyecandy on, and it still was over 30fps at 1920x1200.

Much better than the first time I played it, lol.

This mobo played well with 3x 7970's in crossfire; I need to find two more 480's, lol.
