    They've basically done to themselves what they did to Intel when Ryzen 1 dropped. Knock core counts up a notch across the line. A 2 year old i7 with 4c/8t is likely about to get out benchmarked by a $99 6c/12t chip. Similarly my 8c/16t R7 is now well below spec of an R5. Gr8

    That's great news for us normal bois that don't need 16c/32t. Things just got a lot cheaper.

    I've got my eyes on that 3700X. Even adjusted for local taxes (+25%) it's spot on the price of a 2700X and about $100 cheaper than a i7-9700K.

    I've been avoiding upgrades for a little while now and doing fine with a 6600K. Ryzen has been interesting to me but these new parts will likely get me to upgrade. The price for those cores and speed is amazing.

    My 7th gen i5 at work feels like molasses when multitasking compared to my Ryzen machine.

    Does your workplace install a bunch of security agents too? I've got a newish i7, with 16g of ram and an ssd and my work machine feels like a 386. A CPU core is routinely pegged at 100% dealing with scans from the array of shitty software.

    The low end price/clock on these new ryzens is tempting though. I could probably upgrade my wifes machine to integrated graphics when the Gs come out and she'd never know. She's rocking an ancient HD6850 right now.

    We run Kaspersky, although in process of transitioning off of it. It's given us a lot of issues and after 3 ransomwares in a year we're looking elsewhere, turns out they didn't add the ransomware component to the servers and didn't tell us or notify even though it's included in our package. Think ESET is what my boss said.

    That's good to know. My system is starting to feel sluggish when running a few programs. There are more background processes running than I realized. I have a feeling part of it is from Windows 10/chrome updates.
