Current Amazon price is also 299 FYI.
Probably just price matched because it was about $10 more earlier.

This is a nice CPU for content creators and power users but overkill for gaming. There is little to no game improvements so if that's what you are going for get the 3600x if you can find it under $200 or the 3600. Spend the extra $100 on the GPU where it matters.

I've been looking to upgrade my 5820k@4.3GHz setup. I have a 2080Ti and game @ 4k.

Is this one worth upgrading to or should I wait for the next gen of Intel chips to come out?

Microcenter has for the same price and if you order it with a motherboard, you get $30 off. If I were building a computer at this time, this without be my CPU of choice. You get 8 cores at 65 watts.

If you're only gaming, it's not going to help you that much. You're much better off spending money on a graphics card, but you already have a high end card.

But the power and loss is much hihger. I am not sure how much the performance is better though.

It's funny how my CPU is 5yrs old already and yet most games are still GPU limited at 4k. I want to upgrade but as of yet I have no real reason to.

Any x470 or x570 board is compatible. My preference is Asus. My experience with msi and gigabyte have been negative.

Ryzen CPUs like fast memory. I suggest getting the fastest in your budget.

I believe that depends on the kind of gaming you are looking at.
For instance having 4 cores in the same chiplets should be quite good for RPCS3 as it does best with 8 threads that need to stay synchronized, with as low latency between core as possible (which crossing chiplets increases).
In that case actually I think the 3900X would be worse than the 3800X/3700X.
