To say that AMD is back at the races would be something of an understatement. The firm's latest 7nm graphics cards are both competitive and keenly priced, and on the CPU front, Ryzen continues to go from strength to strength.

The arrival of 3rd Gen chips has been met with critical acclaim, with us describing the 65W Ryzen 7 3700X as a part "that verges on being a no-brainer buy." High praise indeed, but the expectations of reviewers and consumers don't necessarily align, and it's always fascinating to hear how our readers respond to new launches.

For this week's question, let's get a feel for the consumer reaction to AMD's latest release by asking: has Ryzen 3rd Gen lived up to your expectations? Share your thoughts using the comments facility below.

The lack of overclocking headroom is disappointing.

BUT the new 3rd gens look decent/appealing overall :)

I'm seeing this as a positive instead of a negative, it means that AMD have extracted everything that they can from the chips as “stock”. Overclocking is soon to be a thing of the past with turbo/boost clocks.

Not really. It means they can advertise a product that is “pushing the boundaries” but really they aren't producing the product on high quality materials and processes. How do we know even now that the silicone that is being used for zen2 is a good batch, where is the comparison? we wont know, because we don't even know what should be getting as the consumer. Back to the point at hand, great value and i just need biostar to sort out my bios issues :angst:
The 3600 looks like the right upgrade for me but I'd like to see the B550 motherboards before I decide. I can live with it for a little while longer.
im holding judgment until Hexus releases its revies of the Ryzen 5 and lower end 7 series, however, I will say that the high-end units are rather attractive compared to Intel's units, specifically the performance per watt.
