    Oof. A 3800XT seems like a better choice.

    ...but the 3800XT is a terrible choice right now. A 200MHz turbo boost for around £60 more than the 3800X with no base clock boost? No thanks.

    Or you could spend £12 more and get the 3900X with 4 more cores/8 more threads.

    Basically the XT versions are pointless at their current prices. They only make sense if AMD either end production of the X versions or drop the prices of the XT versions.

    That and it's yet more CPUs for AM4 to support - it seems like AMD hasn't learned from the B550 backlash & could really do with reducing the number of CPUs per generation wants to keep socket support over several generations.

    Or it's picking up Intel's bad habits and thinks it can charge extra for an extra letter on the box.
