Please don't hold your breath until games require more than a 5800X3D. Again you guys are completely missing the point of this part. It's about maximum gaming performance right now (and in the near future). For a number of titles where fps is at a premium the 5800X3D is anywhere up to 50% faster. Sim racers for example have been jumping all over the 5800X3D.Longevity SHOULD be a concern as you won’t be able to upgrade the cpu on this chipset past the 5950… the 5900 will clearly give you a far better bang for the buck in almost all cases.
Stop talking about value, it's about maximum gaming performance, so 5800X3D or 12900K/S.
