That or should I wait for Zen3 first ?
 
Who do you think will pull ahead? What does Intel have in store for us once Zen3 comes out if it takes the crowd with single thread performance ? (If anyone knows)

You answered your own question. Wait till Zen 3 and official benchmarks and not the BS marketing slides in the Oct 8th presentation. As it stands right now however, if you're a gamer first and only do light other tasks like video editing or rendering, go with an Intel based system. They are currently the fastest gaming CPU available. They can do other tasks like the aforementioned workloads but you won't get as many CPU cores for the same money spent with Intel. If you do more actual work on your PC like mentioned earlier then it would benefit you to go AMD for the simple fact that for the same money spent you'll end up with more CPU cores, sure AMD CPUs can still game just fine but they aren't as fast as their Intel counterparts. 
 
This could all change with Zen 3 but only time will tell. When it's in the hands of independent reviewers that aren't trying to sell you something look at the numbers objectively and make your choice then.

Wait for Zen 3, it's silly to try and decide now.

Wait for Zen 3, it's launching October/November. The rumor mill had been claiming Intel was going to launch rocket lake this year, but I don't see that happening. Odds are Intel won't launch anything until 2021, and I don't seem it being worth waiting for compared to Zen 3. AMD offers a more affordable platform with B550 anyway. 


Have water, will cool.

Oh.. if you're choosing between theese "two" I would take AMD. Advice above are right. Wait till October & Zen3. ManyManuals.com as an advisor if you still wanna take AMD or Intel to check their instruction and advantages. Imao.

Wait for the zen 3 announcement oct 8th.
There will be a better idea of the competition and hopefully reviews will be out soon after to confirm.
