I just pulled up my Amazon cart and had a price alert that the 3900x dropped to $469.99. The listing shows $493, but adding to cart does show the $469.99, at least as of writing this.

Must be a huge niche cause it was/is selling like hotcakes. First time its had a price drop since it was release.

I'm fine with most of this, but saying IPC in AMD is garbage is spreading bad information I feel. That used to be their biggest problem, but it has been vastly improved with Ryzen and Zen 2, the 9900k may have a 5% advantage in single thread performance over the 3900X and that is probably lagely due to higher boost clocks on a single core. I don't believe IPC is that big of an issue any longer. And, the price is at least 5% higher for the 9900k, so I don't see how the 9900k is a value over the 3900x really?

Yes, according to amd.com, which just took 30 seconds to Google. The 9 series 3xxx processors are included in the promo to receive both games + the 3month pass.

20 bucks isn't really a slickdeal. We have 80 dollar drops on 2080s and 9900k's that get no traction. This is basically a niche CPU for the extreme multitasker or video editor
It's gaming performance is right there with Intel. Most of the benchmark scores are very close

Better off with a 8700k at 5ghz and putting your money towards a 2080ti
An 8700k is 380 vs 460 for a 9900k. You're talking $80 for two more course and a soldered CPU. The 8700 K is a terrible value right now as it basically competes with the 9700 K but it runs substantially hotter and costs more. not to mention it's slightly worse in many tasks
