Glad I have a microcenter nearby me. 3700x is $280 and 3800x is $300 there right now. 3600 is only $160.

I purchased this at Microcenter for $280. It was tag as the same price as the 3700x. Even though it rang up as $300, they honored the lower price.

Exactly, this is not a good price even if you didn't have a MC close by to you...
Yeah, I'm actually a bit confused by the "deal" as this seems to be the current price at most major retailers right now.

You and everyone in SoCal, basically half the world.

Kinda disappointed the 3900 still hasn't dropped below $450. Newegg eBay already hit that price, why no love for the full speed ram writes? I feel hurt that AMD crippled writes and still wanted to set market prices based off Intel procs. Mbn to have %50 profit margins while selling a two year design complete uarch.

Somehow wherever Jim Keller lands end up 6 years ahead of everyone... Apple needs another stint once Tesla is done, before Steve Jobs died they were consistently the fastest. Now they are just another company in the running

As others have mentioned this isn't much of a deal, and you can easily find the 3700x for $300 online which is a better deal.

I actually have a 3800x. Got it at MC for $280, $20 more than 3700x, and came with both Borderlands 2 and Outer Worlds instead of just one so worth the extra $20 in that case. Yet for an extra $40 it is not worth it. You might get an extra 100Mhz during boost if you have a good cooling solution, and if you plan to all core overclock it will probably do better (maybe an extra 200 Mhz, but could literally be nothing). Yet all core overclocking hurts lower core workloads like gaming so it's often not worth it unless you are only using programs that use heavily threaded workloads. As for Power Boost Overdrive and overclock offset it doesn't do much above the base setup. I have occasionally got spikes near 4.6 GHz but for the most part it followed the base Ryzen setup of 4.5 GHz single core boost and 4.2 GHz all core boost. It also isn't thermal throttling as highest temps were 70C. That seems to be a common theme with PBO and offsets. Doesn't do much different that just the base Ryzen boost setup even if you keep it really cool (note keeping it cool does stop it from thermal throttling and the 3800x can get hot so a good cooler is still worth it you just won't get much extra out of great cooler, at least from PBO).

So in conclusion, the 3700x is really the better deal unless you can find a 3800x for only a little more with maybe some extras.

If building a system I would wait until other component prices drop back down. one could easily spend $150 premium buying in the winter season. Avg ram and mobo prices went up..

3800X is like in a no man's land. It is not a 3900x and it is also not a 3700x. Yet it is closer to a 3700x in performance but uses more power like the 3900x. You're better off buying one of the other two than this one.

Newegg is not collecting taxes from you?
