Wow I am surprised they are allowing us to reserve one. I was able to snag one. The question I have is it worth the $250 over the 3900x??

Wow, Linus went off on intel on the 10980XE review. And the 3950x did extremely well against it. Now I feel better about my choice!


I wonder what that mystery chip on top SHREDDING all the THREADS in the benchmarks is?

Well, again my local mc customer service fed me a line of bs. I got here at 8 am to be early to see if they have any stk of the 3950x even tho i was told yesterday they will not have them. Just thought to myself to chk the website again to see if it happened to have finally been updated to show cpu, and to my surprise it was!.. shows 10+ in stock and i reserved 1 while i wait in the parking lot.. so i actually have a real chance to be bringing home 1.. anyone else in the atl area.. come to mariettas mc as of now they show stock

I just got my cancellation from MC. My only hope is Amazon at this point.

So my reservation was confirmed, I actually do not need the 3950x since I have a 3900x. However if someone is in need of one I can pick it up later today/tomorrow.

Same thing happens every launch for high end hardware ever. This ain't your first rodeo..
Do you get salty because you can't find a fx5800 eng sample all the time?


It's kind of bullshit that people let them get away with it.

Any we'll run business doesn't launch a product until they have adequate launch quantities to support predicted demand
Backorders happen, but that's when you have unexpected production or distribution issues, or your prediction is off.

If you are launching and you know you have insufficient quantities to support demand, you are not doing it right.

I got lucky. Nowinstock.net texted me right before I stepped into the shower, around 4:55 am local (10:55 am EST). Clicked over to Amazon -- even had time to change to Amazon Smile -- added to cart and ordered. Huzzah.

One of the very few times being -10:00 GMT has actually helped. Once I'd arrived at work, my phone would be locked in a vault and I'd have no chance of getting a CPU.

I wasn't quite as lucky. I had the "Add to Cart" button, but as soon as I clicked it I was told my "Cart is Empty" and then nothing. Oh well.

Glad my order didn't get cancelled !!

I'm kinda bummed by some of the reviews. Performance is one thing, but what about gotchyas with new platform? This happens every CPU/Chipset launch. They all talk about performance but then we have to hear it from the acutal users on the forums where folks see teething with new platform like we did with the Ryzen launches with voltage..etc. Really Tech Youtubers, nothing to report on that front? Everything was perfect?

I made sure to flash my BIOS to the latest before even thinking about installing this cpu using the "Flashback" technology.


Also scope this out, got a response from AMD directly:

Man I'm ready to snag a 3970x but apparently a stupid paper launch again.

Reviews show 3970 at or greater in games than 9900k. Wow!

And compute performance is retarded unreal.

BH just moved back their 3970x availability to Dec 6th...
