Hello guys,
I am not a guru of hardward, for this reason, ask for the help of the experts.
I would like to update my PC, (motherboard, processor, ram and graphic card)
 I have been reading about these new processors and I wonder if it is worth updating them today, I have seen very few motherboards for these ..........
What is your opinion?
Thank you in advance

If you have a total budget for Workstation under 3000 Euros, get Ryzen 3950X.
If you have a total budget higher than that, get new Threadripper Gen3 3xxx.

They all come out in November.

There is no reason to consider Epyc, new Threadripper is basically consumer oriented Epyc and there will be additional server-based platform for it as well if all the leaks/rumours are to be believed.

Absolutely, right now is not good time to buy :- ). Let's wait a month, there will be 3 interesting options.

Intel X299 platform right now is over-priced compared to Threadripper, but it will be slashed by 50perc. ! I.E the next 18core i9 will be +/- 1000 Euros, not 2000 like right now.

It will be still worse than Threadripper, no competition there, but maybe it will be better option than Ryzen because X299 is quad-core platform with 8-dimm slot motherboards.

Next month!
