I was waiting for the 3700x to drop to this price again!

Do you think prices will continue to drop over the next 30-60 days or are supply chains impacted right now and this is the best it will get?

I'm waiting to see what happens as well. Personally I'm eyeing a 1660, but let's see what happens

I want to jump on this deal so bad but with the market about to keep tanking and everything I can't see these prices holding steady. Plus there's got to be a reason these keep going on sale right?

There is a rumor this morning that the 4000 series are dropping in October. If you can hold out, prices might come down more on the 3000s. Prices will only go up if people keep panic buying while production capacity is reduced, creating scarcity. With world economies reeling, I think it's unlikely that manufacturers intentionally raise prices, as that's only likely to further hurt sales with people out of work and consumer confidence in the gutter.

Great info thanks but hold out for how long? October is a long ways ahead and I've been waiting to build since November waiting for April when intel was suppose to announce and release their new i10 series chips. There's a lot of truth in your post though, no way will prices rise when the economy is tanking the way it will be in the upcoming weeks.

There will be much less demand for all products due to people losing jobs and not going out- expecting deflationary market soon. Prices likely to fall.

AMD trying to meet sales projection for this quarter.

Do you think I should get this or the ryzen 3600?

I'd mainly use it for general use, music recording, gaming, and virtual machines. I'd like the capabilities to do other things as well such as some video editing and maybe streaming.

I know the 3600 has 6 cores and 12 threads compared to 8 cores and 16 threads for 3700x. So the 3700x would be better for productivity tasks, but would it be that big of a noticeable difference between the two?

With so many unknowns an October release is unlikely. Every import from China has been negatively impacted delaying shipments due to contamination concerns. If one were to bet money... It will be q1 2021.. unless you mean samples for benchmarking as an "on paper" release... Also notice how quiet AMD is when they were do vocal (YouTube chatter)about new products and timelines before Corona.. can't promise a release timeline now.

Chip fabs are the cleanest and most automated factories on earth. Any delay will have little to do with the virus. One shipping container can hold tens of thousands of CPU's so it's not like there's a huge logistics burden.. AMD's main concern is the recession. If 30% of people are out of work, pc parts sales take a nose-dive.

The 3600 is a great multitasker. I've had no trouble gaming & streaming at the same time, or running a VM plus chrome tabs plus video editor, all with no hiccups. If you're not editing video hours every day you won't see a lot of difference.

Also, if you buy now, this cpu will be worth 1/3 the price when ryzen 4 is released (in few months). It would be a very poor investment. And is also said to release their new gpu, that supports ray tracing, along with ryzen 4. I would suggest waiting for new cup and gpu or wait for better deal on ryzen 3. Price will sink much lower give it some time and don't panic buy.

For gaming not at all there is a ton of reviews on YouTube where 3600 keeps on pace with even a 3800x like 3fps or less variance
