I do a lot of DC with my 5800X (but still mostly gaming). The extra cores would obviously benefit DC but would I see a regression in games or would it be a side-grade in that sense?

As far as cache-to-core ratios go, the 5900X has double the L3 cache (64MB, in two slices), but only 50% more cores, so it should have a higher cache-to-core ratio. (Than the 5950X too.)

The 5800X3D has even more cache, but still only 8 cores, and I think, because you can't OC the 5800X3D, you can't undervolt it effectively either.

For gaming I'm kind of assuming that it would be mostly a side-grade.

There are a number of people overclocking the 5800X3D.

Nobody wants this for $350 shipped Priority to CONUS? Paypal please.

What if I made it a package deal with a used 1660ti Gaming X, in decent condition? And will throw in a mobo for free if I have one avail BNIB. Say $450 (total for all three items, BNIB 5900X, used 1660ti Gaming X, and asst. BNIB AM4 mobo)?
If it wasn't for the fact that I already have hardware at home that I haven't even had a chance to put together yet. I need to get this stuff together first before I go buying more. Otherwise, I'd be all over this.
$450 for a 5800X, 1660Ti and a AMD motherboard? You bet I'd be all over this!

I'm so tempted by this. On one hand I could be able to test yet another configuration of Zen3 for upcoming challenges, on the other, I already have many different types to manage. It's not the price that keeps me from this, it's the testing overhead.
