    started ordering the parts for new build, everything bar the PSU and ram getting changed, march 30 might help my wallet recover a bit lol... will probably just get a new PSU as well, waiting for a good deal on fast ram to pop up and will make do with 3200 until then. MrsBS looking forward to getting my old PC :p

    How are these stores allowed to sell these CPUs? And at launch I'm betting there will be a shortage.

    ^^ Yep, that is to be expected, as the silicone is probably on max yield already, and Intel is milking the fab-process cow at the moment, the only way to get a good speed-step out of these chips would be to dump more voltage at it. So one could assume that won’t leave much for the ‘standard’ water-cooling overclockers brigade, perhaps more for extreme coolers though.

    But certainly not a totally unexpected direction, this will be a gap-filler until the smaller fab-process is executed.

    The 11400 rumours are very interesting, might be a little gaming champ there

    30th? I thought the announcement and release date were both on the 16th, going to have to tell the person who wants it that they are going to have to wait another fortnight!

    guess it’s not that surprising, Intel hired the guy that designed the Ryzen CPUs

    Infinity Fabric is about scalability and future looking at how CPU's will need to be utilised/designed, isn't it?

    So Intel moving to an IF style is actually good? It means they're looking at future scalability issues under existing designs and a building towards mitigating it?

    This is good for bitcoin intel consumers.

    With all those years of 0 innovation, one is simply left to copying others' design.
