    That will be $800 plus for the 11700k and $1000 for the i9. Far out

    Spit said he's gonna buy a dozen and give me one for free.. so all good. :thumbup:

    Anyway that's actually good news if you think about it.. cos Intel's not gonna try to sell 8 core cpu for $1000 unless its Superfast!!!

    I think it's good. Will be good for intel to have something to compete with the 5800X ;)

    I am just really excited that Intel(great icon of company, the company that has been crucial to every aspect of technology) has easily taken the leadership still using 14nm technology and only with 8 cores. I believe that Intel has treasure trove of technology and ultimately its core DNA is being that technology leader of the future, so I'm just thrilled as a geek at heart. Our best days are infront of us.

    1k for 11900k and $800+ for a board that will be capable of pushing it is a bit much, especially when this socket is end of line and will be replaced in Q4. Think I will sit this one out.

    You could go for 11600K or 11700K with used Z490 mobo, probably well under $1000 with 11600K, and still faster than 10900K/5950X with bit of oc.

    11600k is supposed to be a hex core

    You don't need 22c/44t 10990XE or 16c/32t 5950X for games..

    6c/12t 10600K(with faster RAM) with bit of oc can easily outperform 10c/20t 10900K in games.

    Except if you OC ram and ring the 10c there would pull ahead again.

    Hex cores are still fine for games but 8c+ do pull ahead in some titles , apples to apples.

    You also don't even know how the 11600k will OC. Depending on yields of this all new chip, they could be dogs or at least a lucky dip. All guesswork at the moment

    For me, I know it sounds silly, but I am waiting to upgrade my 10700K to an 11700K so that I can use the "RESERVED FOR FUTURE" M2 gen4 slot in my Gigabyte Z490M Gaming X motherboard and retire my old RAID-0 hard drives. Currently use the gen3 slot for my 1TB system drive.

    Actually I only got my 10700K/Z490 just after the Ryzen 5000 launch, but it was very cheap due to eBay 20% off code with Computer Alliance. Ended up being $200 for the motherboard, $460 for the CPU, $215 for my 2x16GB DDR4-3600 kit. That $ would only barely pay for a 5800X CPU...

    Running easily at 5.2ghz all core boost, 48x ring, DDR4-4200 @ CL18. Just yeah... I knew the top slot wouldn't be usable until I upgraded to 11th gen, but yeah with the anticipated pricing being so high... not sure it makes sense to do that just for the sake of that M2 slot ha.

    Our best days as enthusiasts are definitely in front of us. Intels are in the past.

    Yeah back in the days when they were paying millions of dollars in bribes and stealing technology from other companies.
