    I'm thinking about building a new rig for my son in the next 6 months, and I'm looking to go with a Ryzen 3 for his build over the intel. More threads, less expensive, great performance, newer mobo features.
    If you go with a budget parts of course it'll be "less expensive". However, like Intel, AMD is no longer pushing budget over performance. And depending on CPU and motherboard, "AMD" could actually be "more" expensive than a comparable Intel system.

    BTW the OP said this...

    "They" being the i9-9900K (@ $529) and the Ryzen 9 3900X (@ around $749). Throw in the MB & RAM to support said chip, and "cheaper" hardly comes to mind

    Presumably you mean there is not that much price diff at the top end, but amd gives more bang for the buck at budget/ mid range? That's where most of the market is.

    Hi,
    lol well if you compare a amd 3000 series 12 core price to an Intel 8 core price it hardly seems logical why not a 7920x or 9920x
    3700x 329.us & 3800x 387.us would likely be a better comparison seeing they are both 8 core cpu's and a lot cheaper

    That ^

    As for bang for the buck... it appears to be that way right now.

    Hi,
    From this post of mine it shows even the 3800x @ 4.4 is not doing so bad cheaper and beating 9900k

    According to a custom builder, for gaming its Ryzen. For audio production (recording studio) and video production its Intel. This builder builds custom systems for recording studios, TV Stations and even the movie industry.

    Want to chime in that I've not had any issues with my 3900X and its been so good for multi tasking, video rendering, vm's ect. It does run pretty damn hot though. I'm on x370 with some slow ram (64GB 2666 CL 16) so not really reflecting full brow performance. I also put my voltage to 1.25v vcore so that it runs not as hot so my max boost is only like 4.325 but it's plenty and I came from the 2600 so can't complain. If your doing anything more then gaming I would recommend it. If just gaming stay 9900K.

    Edit: didn't see Fireberd's post and I agree on the industry front, if you are doing work where it has to be 100% with little fuss intel has way more already in place for long term support from the big software players.

    Hi,
    Canada might have raised the price of the 9900k

    Amazon (USA) - my default price checker for me. I meant to link them.

    i9-9900K - $474.99. Price dropped from last post. BTW I paid $519 for mine in Feb.
    Ryzen 9 3900x - $732 - $829 - Buying Options
