If you are one of the few that have been waiting for the Ryzen 9 3900X to get back in stock, then we have good news for you. The Ryzen 9 3900X has popped up at Amazon and Best Buy for $499.99.
 
Despite the recent price hikes, AMD has assured us that the Ryzen 9 3900X's MSRP remains unchanged. As retailers around the country start to replenish their Ryzen 9 3900X stock, the pricing should fall back down to $499.99 soon. The Ryzen 9 3900X is AMD's current flagship Zen 2 chip, but will ultimately take the back seat once the Ryzen 9 3950X arrives next month. The Ryzen 9 3900X is no slouch, either. The 7nm processor is equipped with 12 cores, 24 threads, and up to 64MB of L3 cache, which will surely appease any hardcore enthusiast. The chip ticks at a 3.8 GHz base clock and 4.6 GHz boost clock.
 
I have a feeling this is why AMD delayed the Ryzen 9 3950X to next month. Due to the TSMC backlog AMD wanted to build up stock of existing 3XXX series processors first. 

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    Technically I think so? But it would require a BIOS update..and you're losing some of the new features of an X470 or X570 board.
     
    I haven't seen anyone doing it yet myself, tho.

    I see this as a big positive. It means the CPU is already optimized to its full potential without the end user having to mess around to squeeze a few more percentage points out of it.
     
    For those who genuinely enjoy that kind of thing, I guess they can instead spend their time on memory overclocking

    The Asus Prime X570-P isnt that bad in terms of price though and i have seen some overclock intel motherboards that are way more pricey.
    Besides its a good thing AMD officially has a high end motherboard market, there hasnt been such thing in forever :D

    Finding an easily accessible Microcenter that isn't 250 miles away is more elusive than a 3900X is.

    That is an awesome price AMD Ryzen 3900X of $499.99 if you can find it in stock at Amazon, Best Buy, Micro Center or other fine retailers. Will AMD 3950X 16 core 32 thread be better at $749.99? Still it represents an amazing value. However, AMD Ryzen 4th generation is right around the corner in 2020 which you posted about @rjohnson11. Now I am torn if and when I get the money to upgrade in the near future or next year? AMD Ryzen 4th generation with AMD X670 (speculation) motherboard.
