How many here are waiting....

How many people here are waiting for Ryzen 3000 series to build a puter around? If yes which cpu or how many cores and threads are you aiming for?

I am hoping for a cheap 8c16t "low power" platform. 🙂

@Mightyunit want to upgrade my wife's 1600 to something like a 3600, I'm looking forward to the new ryzen to see people's builds but I just finished my rig so no upgrading for me haha

I am impatiently waiting. I really don't need a new build, but the CPU market has been soooooo stagnant on the intel side that it is boring. Ryzen 1000 mixed things up, with the 2000 just keeping people interested. The 3000 series has me with my fingers crossed that AMD can get ahead of Intel for a little while. Competition is good for everyone! From the speculations/rumours, the most interesting to me is:

Ryzen 5 3600X 8/16 4.0GHz 4.8GHz 95w

From the design pictures it seems that there is place left for a HBM chip on the die, next to the hsio chiplet. So I am hoping for an apu with integrated hbm memory like the Hades Canyon design for a very small system with some grunt for some 1080p gaming.
