Yeah, it makes a lot of sense for what it is. If it really does provide same or better performance at all times in gaming than a 12900K, and does so at lower power consumption, then 5800X3D will be a no-brainer for high-end gaming builds.I kind of get it. They're putting together a fantastic, last-generation hurrah push. It'll do for everyone that hasn't gotten into this generation, which, is actually probably a pretty big market still.
Edit- maybe Extreme Edition was an uncharitable comparison... this is more like Athlon FX-62 vs Conroe perhaps.
