Ideally id like a threadripper 1950x for work and a 8700k for play

I guess for those who want to work & play perhaps the 1600/1700 is a better choice money wise, but outright gaming, cant beat the intels.. even the i5 beats the 1950x in gaming lol
exactly this !
this will be the new gaming king !

With the right cooling it will be ridiculous good, I'm very eager to see Crysis 3 and GTAV benchmarks, both are core hungry

per-core perf or # of cores? cause if # of cores TR should do well

check out the fps. gta V tested 2-8 cores. the fps increase even from 6-8 cores. and this is just with a gtx 970. with a more powerful g card, probably even more noticeable.

still need to see real benchmarks. i like to see the cpu utilization aswell. i dont like to see cpu at 100%

that's a bit of a low clock xeon though, id like to see that with a 7700k

Waiting patiently for a more (blatently) authentic leak.

Who is our Aussie contact in a retail store? I'm almost positive we have one who would report in "shhh yeah it's in stock now" for this kind of stuff.

possible release date october 5

and its obvious that gta V benefits from more cores.

Intel To Launch Ice Lake 8 Core, 16 Thread Mainstream CPUs in Second Half of 2018 – Will Feature Support on 300 Series Platform
Quote:
Coming to the architecture side of things, Intel has stated that Ice Lake, their 2nd generation 10nm processor architecture, will be well under production in 2018. That looks like the upcoming 8 cores chips will be based on Ice Lake with a brand new 10nm process but it remains to be seen. Looking at the support side of things, Intel’s Z390 chipset’s purpose is now confirmed as it’s meant to have support for higher core count processors.
Quote:
Based on the roadmap details, we can look at a launch in late Q3 or early Q4 (same like Coffee Lake), so that gives board manufacturers ample amount of time to fine tune their products. The question is that whether the Z370 platform will be replaced by all means or will the new CPUs remain compatible on Z370 and other 300-series boards. For now, we know that Intel will have a mainstream competitor to Ryzen 7 processors in 2H 2018 but that doesn’t mean that AMD will remain silent in 2018. There will be some good competition between the age old rivals in the CPU department and we can’t wait to see what both of them have in action for consumers in 2018.
mmm icelake yummy

Was thinking of *finally* upgrading the z68 / 2500k system to z370 / 8700k.

But with AMD back in the game, we should see tangible improvements in CPUs over the next few years. It might actually be worth upgrading after a year or two. Unfortunately it looks like z370 will be a Coffee Lake only platform, with AM4 being around for a number of CPU generations.

I'm thinking the better move for me would be AM4 / 1700x, upgrading to Ryzen 2 or 3 in due course.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Intel are sitting on 4 generations of working designs while focusing on die shrinks below 10nm.

I will buy Z370/Z390 if there is an Apex

After using Z270 and X299 apex's they are brilliant boards. highly recommend if you are an overclocker.

both rigs in my sig are mainly used for games, with overclocking on the side.

difference in gaming performance between the 2 rigs is hardly noticeable.

Be nice if the 8350k can come in around $200 and will run on z270.
ill sell you my SL 5.2Ghz bin 7700K and z270 Apex, beast combo.

Did my 3200 c14 tridents @ 3866 c12 and 4000 c13

currently got the 4400 c19's in the z270 apex, and got them running 4133 c12 on the 7700K. only 2t, strugging to get it 1t!

and on the x299 apex got the 4400c19s runing at 4000c16. bit of work there.

Why would you shoot yourself in the foot like this Intel?

Its the retailer thats shot themselves in the foot by releasing these prices early. They have essentially killed the sales of current platform CPU.

In regards to the CPU and socket. We won't really know until the CPU white papers come out with descriptions of what each pin corresponds to. Just because it doesn't go up in a puff of smoke doesn't mean they are electrically compatible. That said, it won't surprise me that Intel is forcing board makers not to include micro-op codes for the new CPU for older chipset and vise versa. Much like how they squeezed board makers about enabling overclocking on non Z series chipsets.
