CPU & Motherboard Price List

is now a good time to buy a ryzen 3000 series cpu with a compatible b450 motherboard?

It seems the boost function in these cpus doesn't work as expected on many motherboards and so amd is still in the process of addressing this issue by releasing newer bios/firmware updates.

When will the bioses for these motherboards finally become stable and reliable enough so as to enable all the vital functions(boost for instance)to work correctly without any unexpected glitches?Will that take a couple of more months at the very least?

Intel fortunately has had no such problems-but amd seems like the better bet in the long run,more so as their cpus have more threads,which apparently does matter in tasks like gaming.

Nice to see our retailers listing chips before they are even released and reviewed on foreign and official websites.
May be it's releasing in India/Asia first before wide launch across the world.

Pricing is very low compared to Ryzen 3600.
There is no official listing or full specification yet.
Is there any catch? Like Ryzen 3500 is from Zen+, not Zen2? Coz clock speed almost matches Ryzen 3600
Spec - Ryzen 2600 - Ryzen 3500 - Ryzen 3600
Base - 3.4 - 3.6 - 3.6
Boost - 3.9 - 4.1 - 4.2
L3 - 16MB - 16MB - 32MB

Ryzen 3600 is 6 core/12 thread CPU
Ryzen 3500 is 6 core/6 thread

Yeah, 6k price cut for disabling hyper threading is huge considering Ryzen 2600 costs more than Ryzen 3500 and if it's 7nm, the performance would be better than 2600 or at least on par (My rough calculation). If any Ryzen 3600 owner disable hyperthreading and do bench, we will know what would be the performance of 3500 if it's 7nm.

Based on benchmark score from one sample, it seems like R5 3500 is based on 7nm architecture. I thought it would perform better than R5 2600 or at least as good, but it's not.

These non hyper threaded chips performs about 75-80% of hyper threaded chips.
i5 8600/8600k vs i7 8700/8700k
2200G/3200G vs 2400G/3400G

But R5 3500 performs about 70% of R5 3600. May be with more samples, we could see different picture.
R5 3500 has about 20% clock speed advantage over 9400F, should perform much better than this. I don't know why it scores this low.

Based on benchmark score from one sample, R5 3500...
I checked few Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, X570 boards and couple of MSI B450 boards, none of them have R5 3500 in CPU support list. Even the board the reviewer used doesn't have this CPU in support list.
And still AMD yet to officially announce/list this CPU.
I don't know if I have seen this many Q&A for a product in MDC before.

Hi,
What are my options for Mini ITX AM4 Mobo in India? I only found MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC, and that's also not available with most retailers. Would prefer a B450, as I see no reaosn to put money in x570
thanks

Gigabyte B450 I

ASUS ROG Strix B450 I

ASRock B450 Gaming ITX
https://www.amazon.in/ASRock-Mother...s=mini+itx+motherboard&qid=1573929151&sr=8-30

The ASRock seems to be an import. Gigabyte X570 is also available.

PS Some of these should be available on Primeabgb/mdcomputers/vedant/theitwares. Where I am at present (Kerala), none except the Gigabyte ones are available and those too retailers will only order for you specially (they don't keep stock). If you are OK with purchasing online, the four sites are your best bet.


Disclaimer: I've already purchased and installed the MSI B450I for someone else (from Amazon), and found it good. Only drawback is its' hideously cramped to work with (but then so are all mini ITX boards).

Hey thanks for replying. Seems like both Asus and ASRock are imports. So I suppose its either Gigabyte Aoros or the MSI Gaming Plus AC?

How much did you buy the MSI B450I Gaming plus AC from amazon for? and if I may ask, which case did you put it into?

I got it for 14099/- awhile ago. It costs 16000+ now :-(

Cabinet was an Antec EKWB ITX Cube (an extravagant absurdity, but good looking).
