That 5900x is looking like a tempting slot in replacement for my 3900x... maybe when the next series comes out I'll grab a cheap max CPU for my X570 chipset and ride that wave a while.. 5950 maybe.

Waiting on the 5800x go get down to $300. Kind of shocked it hasn't happened yet, Intel is exploiting the price hole in AMD's lineup.

If one could buy a 3900x for the same price as a 5800x.... which one wins? 12c vs 8c, but also likely a butt-ton more power and heat.

There was a pretty good jump in IPC, clock speed, and RAM compatibility with Zen 3. I don't know if 8c would beat out 12c in every fully threaded environment, but I bet it would win more often than not across a broad range of benchmarks, and even in those super-threaded situations be closer than you would think.
