At some point yes, but I feel a bit burnt with my 3800X (even though it did deliver in the end, it's not worth the price difference compared to the 3700X), so I'm going to wait this one out until the prices come down a bit sometime next year. Hopefully there'll be a part between the 5600X and 5800X that will be more reasonably priced as well.
Also, due to the current situation in the world, I don't exactly have cash to splurge.

It's very impressive for AMD.

to be honest..
No. not at all.

we are playing on a half decade old crap architecture from intel.
it is late 2020 and AMD (at least on their 100% TRUE AND LEGIT marketing charts) Zen 3 is at best barely infront of a 10900k, which is not faster than a 10600k with a slight OC.

and their Ryzen 5 has a 300€ Price Tag already?! that's way more expensive than a 10600k.


does not look interesting at all to me except the 16 core chip for production and other workloads.

I don't see considerable improvement of Zen 3 over my i7-10700K in games, so I will stick with it. And 8 cores for games is more than enough.
Especially when I planning to stay with my RTX 2080 up until RTX 4000 series.

The 5600X is 65W.

and its an option, although losing two cores off my 3700x has its down sides. I just want something that pairs well with the 3080 i'm waiting on, and i need reviews to know where that sweet spot is, at 1440p.

may not even need an upgrade, if they dont boost high res gaming.

There's a conspicuously missing "5700X" 8 core SKU. If that's a 65 watt part like the 3700X, that would be the go. And based on the pricing of the previous-gen Zen 2 chips, it would slot in nicely with a US$450 MSRP. Right now you could fit a bus in the price gap between the 5600X and 5800X.

It's definitely coming - it's not like these 4 SKUs are likely to be the entire series, after all. Focus on the high margin parts first to offset the cost of early manufacturing, then fill out the range as chip supply becomes more plentiful/there are enough chips in between retail bins to make a new SKU viable.

In about a year or two, when it's on sale, if needed purely for work though then yes can get it sooner!

There's not going to be a 5700x CPU, that place is likely reserved for the zen3 APU. There will most probably be a 5800 non X & perhaps an XT version as well? Since they've aligned the naming scheme, at least that's what most are assuming, there's not gonna be much space between the numbers to squeeze in the older SKUs as they'd normally do. They can of course go the ATI route & do some XTX or weirder variants just to differentiate, but less numbers is what I'd expect going forward.

Maybe. I really dislike their pin system, always have. Not sure if its still possible to pull cpu with cooler though.. If last years stuff takes a good tumble in price I may go with one of those instead. It will be replacing a 3770K so Im sure anything would be an upgrade lol. I still hate their pins, so that may deter me. I don't want to buy glasses.

yeah but its 6 core, i should have been more specific
Understood
What really interests me for my build hobby are the APUs. If indeed the 5700 is one the that have a single CCX 8 core with a Navi based GPU it could be great for No discrete GPU builds.

does not look interesting at all to me except the 16 core chip for production and other workloads.
Let's remember that the only thing we have that can give us a glimpse of the performance of the 5000 series is the 3300X. That particular chip is faster than the 7700K in single threaded performance. The 10900K is much faster than a 7700K with a much higher core count, power draw and boost clock. I know my 3300X took 4.4 GHZ @ 1.27 V no problem too. What that should mean is that these chips should all get to 4.4 and probably be stable at 4.7 on a good CCCX or single core OC. If that is the case I see no reason why Ryzen should not be as fast or faster than Intel in most benchmarks and some Games. The other thing for me is that you can see that there have been tangible improvements with Ryzen that make the 2600 faster than the 1700 in some applications. I now have a 3600 and that is faster than a 2600. The 5600X is the CPU I have been looking for my Gaming rig since I tried the 3300X.

Personally, i will be upgrading from my current 6950X to AMD’s Zen4 6950X
That's like 10 years you will be gobsmacked.

In before an official poll goes up on the front page and this thread closes...lolol...

Anyway, these are looking to be awesome chips... but sadly, none are really an upgrade for me (7960x) for my uses.

I might consider selling my 3900x and buying the 5900x for the difference. Does anyone know how long amd is sticking with this socket?
Zen 3 will be the last gen on AM4, as far as we know. Zen 4 will change sockets on the enterprise market while jumping to DDR5 and PCIe 5.0, so it is expected that the mainstream platform will also change socket too.

Besides that, it makes business sense. AMD can say that they mostly kept their promise of supporting AM4 up to this point, and changing socket will allow them to better support whatever new features future generations may bring.
