Re: Wait for Ryzen 4000?

Unless the new 4000 is substantially different from the 3700x, I'd not wait.  I just built a 3700x-based system and am starting to put it through its paces.   I haven't done more than seat-of-the-pants feeling speed differences, but the 3700x seems a bit faster all around than my i7-9700k system from last year.  I have them sitting back to back now, so I could pretty easily do some comparison test.  (Suggestions?  I'm thinking something in Lightroom, and perhaps something with Proshow Producer to stress the system with stuff that means something to me.)

Both my systems have the same RAM (32GB, same model number), and both boot from a NVME Samsung 1TB drive.    I have a GTX1060 3GB GPU in the old rig and a Radeon 5700 XT in the new one. Aorus Master x570 in new, Taichi z390 in old.

Both the 3700x and 5700xt were substantially discounted from list price.
