The problem is the 5700/5800 are alot cheaper and perform within 10% of it. In the US for example the 5800x 3d is exactly 1.5x the price of the 5700 (and that's assuming the 5800x3d doesn't get price gouged by scalpers or retailers) but the 5700 is within 5-8% of it in performance in most real world gaming scenarios.What people seem to forget is these CPU's and this X3D one are there for us already on the AM4 platform and for an easy drop in upgrade not aimed for brand new system builds.
Even the demographic it's targeting are more likely to get the better priced alternatives instead (people that have been sitting on 2018/2019 era Ryzens are way more likely to save the extra money)
Actually not true. Most benchmarks show DDR4 3600 either equal, within a few percent, or actually faster than DDR5 (that's the whole controversy with DDR5, not worth the cost). If your doing a complete new build then 12700 w/B660 and DDR4 is the best value right now. 12400/12600 isn't a bad temp plan if you have desire to swap out a 13th gen CPU laterSo if your going to compare it to some AL CPU you need to compare it to not just the CPU but DDR5 RAM (most likely) CPU, Motherboard and cooling cost compared to just the cost of a 5800X3D and when you then compare the two the price to performance is massively in AMD's favour.
