Yeah that's the thing. If it turns out that 8 cores on 1 chiplet via 3700x and 3800x, performs better for gaming vs 12 cores on 2 chiplets via 3900x, I may end up going for 8 cores only. Tripling my current core count would have been nice though. XDmy motherboard is ready.
I still haven't decided which one, but i'm guessing the 3700x @ msi x470 gaming pro carbon.
(I have a bad feeling about 3900x that it may suffer from latency issues - but again i haven't seen dies of 3700 model anyway.)
