    That Is crazy how far the price has dropped since it came out.

    I am also looking at this deal. CPU price is very good, but I could not find a good deal for x399 motherboard. Any recommendations?

    A metric ton of these first gen Threadrippers were sold in the past couple of days. That Newegg listing alone is showing 191 sold in 24 hours as of this moment. Every one of those will require a motherboard. I doubt you'll be seeing any price drops on those with so much demand...

    Be aware that Newegg is not accepting return for this 1950X. Don't know if it's because Newegg is dumping stock or because a bigger price cut will come?

    it's sold-out already at Newegg website , so maybe dumping stocks?

    this price is very competitive.... i don't think you can find any equivalence currently (past or presence) equal performance when taken into consideration of single and multicore for the price....

    as far as MB goes this $300 asrock x399 taichi is not bad... i mean its not cheap but you do get a lot of features for it....

    ASRock X399M TAICHI sTR4 AMD X399 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

    once 1950X gets to $300, unless v2 and v3 cpu goes down also, i don't think we can really beat the multicore performance of 1950x unless 2697 v2 cpu goes down to $150 or less.....

    again, the only issue left is ram price and support.... It's quite cheap and easy to do 256GB with v2 cpu... not very easy or even cheap or very possible with 1950X..... but i imagine most people wont need 256gb ram anytime for the next several years..

    This will definitely put a lot of pressure on i9-9900k though... i mean 9900k is significantly faster in single and quad core but this one basically blow away 9900k in multithread for significantly cheaper price.
