FFS, they are havin' a giraffe.
The last Impact, circa 2015, was £185. Even taking into account inflation and B**xit (artificial), that is just p***-taking of the highest degree.
So you'd be looking at the best part of £1000 just for the mobo & CPU, £1200 if you go for the 3950....madness.
Asus tax+X570 tax+Brexit tax = expensive high end mobo's....
Really love what AMD have done with Ryzen 3000, but a lot of it is being off-set by these board costs (and yes, you can get cheaper X570 boards, but they are so cut-down on features you're still better off with a decent X470/B450 board).
B550 can't come soon enough.
Having owned and loved 2 Impact boards, this isn't really doing it for me. It's madly expensive and not that amazing on features.
If it had a 2nd PCIe slot to justify its mDTX size, that WOULD be something, not sure how it would help though.
I've jumped off the express train of going top end, and an have followed others here with an H370 and and non K i5 hex core, which has been a great step up from my Haswell i5.
