Not a bad bargain at $50 discount … don’t miss out! But to be honest … I think the Ryzen 9 3900X is better value at USD $469 – https://amzn.to/2HRGGBk
Taken from Hothardware … MicroCenter is currently running a deal on the Ryzen 9 3950X, which is the flagship processor in AMD’s Ryzen 3000 consumer desktop family. It wasn’t until recently that retailers even had sufficient availability of this processor, so it’s somewhat surprising to see this healthy discount on the chip.
The retailer is selling the processor for $699, which is $50 off its MSRP. We had previously seen the Ryzen 9 3950X fall to $729 on sale (also from MicroCenter). The deal is only available in-store or by placing an order online for in-store pickup. Unfortunately, shipping options are not available for the processor.
The Ryzen 9 3950X is a 16-core/32-thread processor with a base clock of 3.5GHz and a boost clock of 4.7GHz. The 7nm Zen 2 CPU has a TDP of 105 watts and is best suited in an X570-based motherboards (which will give you PCIe 4.0 support).
