    It's not "inflated" if that's what the market is bearing out. Right now the prices at Newegg has AMD's R9 considerably more expensive than the Intel i9. That suggests the enthusiast market is favoring AMD enough to concern Intel. I have no idea if that is borne out in OEM and bulk prices like Google and Amazon would pay for their infrastructure, but it's still very surprising. New Intel has historically been consistently more expensive than new AMD no matter the seller in the enthusiast market. To see this reversed is astonishing.

People may value the R9 over the i9 for the better mitigation, for the "7nm-ness", or just for the logo. Think of Apple products which are also generally above the mean: demand makes that possible.
      Or there is just limited supply to meet the demand.

        So, an 8-core Intel part is as fast as AMD's 12 core part?

          This is why Michael went through the effort of doing OpenMP tests...

            Apache 2.4.41 is out. You'd expect one to oh I don't know test on something recent, say even 2.4.37--itself going on one year old.

              Newegg has the 3900X for $699 because they have only 1 in stock. Yes, the price is inflated due to lack of supply.

                Intel Core I9 9900K ~ 490 USD
                AMD Ryzen 9 3900X ~ 560 USD

                Obviously there's more than just the CPU in the price of a computer, but still...
                How much is Intels 12 core

                  Diminishing availability does not necessarily translate to a price rise _everywhere_. Your corner deli, when it is about to run out of smokes of a particular brand, is not going to raise the price of the remaining packs of said brand.

                    If you can buy the same pack in the nearby store or even this store but this week, sure. If it happens everywhere - it would raise them. Scarcity definitely contributes to the increase in prices.
