Wow. Good deal.

Aside: Anyone else hate how Amazon redirects to your country's local Amazon site based on IP when you click an Amazon.com link? This even ships from Amazon US to Canada... Which happens to be selling the 1920x for $420 USD. Hmmm.

That's a good deal for 12 cores IMO. The problem is that the motherboard for Threadripper are expensive enough that making the jump usually makes it easier to justify the bigger core counts available.

... and they're sold out. :P

Still good to see a 12 core chip available at that price though even if only for a while.
Do not meddle in the affairs of archers, for they are subtle and you won't hear them coming.
