Can't be much longer - they say Q4 2019, so they only have a month and a half left.
Great, maybe I've found my next upgrade.
it will be a downgrade from an 8700K.
Folks, this isn't The Pub. I just deleted a lot of very low-quality posts from this thread. Discuss the topic, not each other, and have your meme battles elsewhere.
The real cost of buying processors for doing overclocking scores 9940x was not all that great. $2100 buy. Little use $1400 sell.
Bought a new 10900x $1000. Why not hey? These were $1500 in shops for a long long time here AU
Then an Apex VI board last night $450. Finally get to see what this thing can do.
Price cuts have obviously brought the punters back to the HEDT platform, I'm struggling to find stock of the i9-10980XE for our work machines.
not quite... it's Intel that can't produce anything in volume at the moment.
Wouldn't you be better off on a server platform with a comparable Xeon processor?
I am at my personal crossroads. One path is tossing more $$$$ at computer parts. The other path is selling parts and walking away from it.
When doing HWbot scores feels like a choir.
Needing money is not a factor. Spending time on other things is.
Feels like a mid-life crisis
Sell off the stuff you don't use, keep some stuff you do like. Then walk away from it, wait a few months and decide whether you want to still be involved in the PC community or not. Take your time, there's no rush.
