Sorry guys, you had over an hour on the 5800x, OOS now, but the 3950x is still available.

Just got back from a trip to long island, westbury store, and they
had a cage full of 3950's for 679.00. No 5950 or 3080-3090's :confused:

Newegg popular product lottery is where it's at. Might take a few tries but eventually you can pick up a 5000 series CPU at MSRP.

I just picked up a 5900X at MSRP.

In multi-core efforts and WCG Boinc, can I get a short summary on the benefits of 5950x vs 3950x? From reviews... Sometimes it is up to 10% maxed out frequency and all core, and other times only 2 or 3%?

I can live with my current heaters if being realistic... But would enjoy playing with something new. Have prepped some for a 5000 AMD series, but I can live through others for whenever?... Sad..

@IEC

OK, I entered the lottery today. Its 2:08, and no email on the results yet. How long until I know ? How long does it take for the email ?

And thanks for the advice. I didn't really want a 3070, but its better than nothing. At $630 I can afford it.

There is no "sad" like, so I didn;t.... But, I feel the pain as well.

So, I have a pre-order with B&H from Nov 5th last year, nothing so far. I have a pre-order with shopblt.com, they push out the ETA a week, every week. And the shuffle is a bust.

You just can't buy anything the last 6 months !!!%#^$#!%# (of new hardware)
