    Actually back in February(?) Kyle confirmed (from what he heard) that the launch would not have a 16 core cpu but that it was on the table for release later.

    Btw the graphics stuff that was rumoured was about price not about performance. The reason why you can dismiss any rumours or speculation about any graphics card from AMD being high end was not possible since their R&D budget was pretty small.

    Ya as much as I want a 3000 I have a 1700x@3.8 and a high OC 2080 for my Samsung Odyssey+, and using FPSVR it is always showing my GPU as being the bottle-neck. Maybe the faster CPU could help though? I have heard that games like IL2 (which I play) benefit from all the CPU they can get as they are on an old engine with low core usage. But would that matter if my GPU is already the limiter? Or is it a yin/yang relationship?
