    how is that a problem or funny? every cpu thats quicker @ cinebench is 6 cores or more.. plus cinebench is very AMD friendly.

    Post per-core performance in gaming, 8700k will be at the top, and thats what this CPU is aimed at, not boring benchmarks and rendering..

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

    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

    Yeah no.
    There's already a journalist with a sample saying it's wrong

    Seems to be the same score in the live test.

    Silly question.

    Why don't we yet have the same shit mobile processors have?
    1-2 fast single threaded cores and a few slower and possibly less featured cores?

    Nothing wrong with:
    2x 4.5-5ghz cores no HT with lots of cache (i7 style)
    +
    4x 2ghz cores with less cache and HT. (i3 style)

    So will I need a z370 board for these new cpu's? My two best oc boards are z170 and my two z270 boards are pretty ordinary at memory oc. :(

    Be nice if the 8350k can come in around $200 and will run on z270.

    Z370 required from everything I've read.

    It is possible to be an AMD or Intel fan, without being loopy about it.
    I hope you like your new 1600x. Personally, if they came with a GPU built in, no segfaults and were 20% cheaper, I'd consider one.

    would be as much as beta testing AMD hardware ;)

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

    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.

    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.
