The base clocks and boost clocks of the Ryzen 1500X are wrong. Its base clock is 3.5Ghz and its boost clock is 3.9Ghz when including XFR.

Why would you buy a:
Intel Core i3-8350K 4 4 4.0GHz N/A 91W R2,956

instead of a:
Intel Core i5-8400 6 6 2.8GHz 4.0GHz 65W R3,041

That price difference is wack.

Probably the main reason is that only overclocking motherboard Z370 is available at the moment. Non-overclocking CPU on extremely expensive motherboard is a waste of money.

A second reason is that i3 CPU's are available now. For i5/i7 you will have to wait for delivery.
