    I am thinking, it might be a good thing when the new gen computers come out as it would save me a few dollars when buying the current gen.

    I am definitely buying a new mainboard and a new CPU in July, but I cannot decide which one at the moment.

    Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Cores / 24 Threads | 3,8 / 4,6 GHz | 64 MB L3 | 105 W TDP | 499 USD
    Ryzen 7 3800X 8 Cores / 16 Threads | 3,9 / 4,5 GHz | 32 MB L3 | 105 W TDP | 399 USD
    Ryzen 7 3700X 8 Cores / 16 Threads | 3,6 / 4,4 GHz | 32 MB L3 | 65 W TDP | 329 USD
    Ryzen 5 3600X 6 Cores /12 Threads | 3,8 / 4,4 GHz | 32 MB L3 | 95 W TDP | 229 USD

    To me 3800X and 3600X are the most tempting, and while I do glance at the 8-core-CPU, I do think the much cheaper price for the 6-core Ryzen 5 is great along its Ghz-output.

    I'm interested to build a new computer with a 3rd gen Ryzen. I think I'll get the 3800X but I wait for reviews first. Hopefully all the rumors are true. :)

    Anyone else think its worth getting the new Ryzen? I kinda think to get an i7 9700k if the price drops significantly and get myself HE handbrake (unless the price is the same)
