Great deal if you need this many cores. These chips are specific to multi-core applications. Not for gaming. Still a fantastic price. If you could go back in time a few years ago and know you could get a 12 core CPU for under $300.00? Unthinkable!

I still see the deal, but it's under another seller other than Newegg. It's being sold by NothingButSavings for that price.

This isn't a deal. This is just the normal price now. That's why all these Newegg sellers, Amazon sellers, and others are all around $270

Would be decent if there were cheap boards available for TR. As it is Ryzen 3000 series is a way better value.

Looks like it is also cheaper at Rakuten with the current 15% off.

No way it was 800 recently unless it was a 3rd party vendor. The 2920x right now is selling for 400 on Amazon

Yes the 3900X out performs the 1920/2920. However if your workload needs quad channel DDR4, or a VROC nvme RAID (0/1/10) configuration, then the x399 platform still has many viable use cases. Especially with the availability of 10Gb Ethernet on many x399 boards.

TR4 motherboards are fewer in number and since the processors have always been more expensive - so have the boards.

Looks like there's a Gigabye Aorus TR4 X399 Mobo for about $270 at Newegg.

A 3900X and a nice x370/x470 board will be within a hundred bucks of this chip and a x399 Mobo. If you play any games, the 3900X has superior gaming performance and overall compute performance. If you are a professional user and need quad channel memory or 4-5x the PCI Express Lanes - the Threadripper processors are still ideal

Old stock. Not a deal. Ive had my Treadripper for 2 years. Buying a Ryzen 9 3900X and dumping this socket. 12-16 core is mainstream now shouldnt cost more than $400-500. No reason to buy this since the Ryzen 7 3800X is about the same preformance with 8 cores. X399 MB start out at $300. So really either you buy a X399 with this CPU or get a X570 and a 3800X for the same price.

Are you going to sell your TR/board? I'm in market for a used one

Would you recommend the TR for an ESXI server?
