When the 5800X3D was released it was to take the gaming crown from Intel, which it did very well. It was also released for with an MSRP of $450. It can now regularly be found on sale around the $300-320 mark. I even saw a sale once that brought it down to $283 and it's worth that all day long. The 5600X3D is the stock pile of damaged chips left over from the 3D Vcache process and they're essentially trying to recoup their some of their costs from it. AMD is not actively making the 5600X3D, they're just damaged 5800X3D chips.I think the logic behind the 5600X3D is why sell the 5600 when you can add vcache and get another $100 added onto the products price. It's just all about margins.
If you wanted a strictly gaming PC, the 5600x3d is a fantastic budget option. With me, though, I've grown accustomed to having 8 cores and would likely spend my money on more cores than gaming performance.I was interested in getting one when they released since Micro Center is only about a 15-20 minute drive from my place, but my funds for one had to be spent else where so I never did get one.
Maybe soon. I don't need one, but it would be nice to just have one to screw around with. Plus I really need to update the hardware in my HTPC server - running on a nearly 10 year old CPU right now, it certainly feels long in the tooth when I'm running games on it as a server for online. I know that MC has a pretty great deal with this CPU, a MB and 16GB RAM for $300....this would be the reason I'd even bother getting one now. I wouldn't want to pay $230 just for the CPU alone.
