    Is AVX even worth the die space?

    Yeah that Anandtech review on the poor gaming performance totally turned me away, in some games it even performed worse than the 10700K.

    You watch all the preorders skyrocket after people read this article.

    If you are gaming , surely the 5800x would be a better option than the 59**x

    Certainly has made my choice to upgrade to a 5800X instead of an 11th series.

    I've been Intel so long that I have forgotten what it's like being able to keep the same Mobo too.

    Ahah.
    If was to buy an 8 core, I'll be getting a 5800x every day of the week if that's the case.

    So is it the slower L3 cache which is slowing the 11th gen CPUs in games since productivity benchmarks seem better across the board from 10th gen?

    Quite honeslty, the 10850K is the bargain of the moment. 10 core 20 thread, unlocked, readily available and at a decent price.

    EDIT: Never thought I would be saying this about an Intel CPU any time soon.

    I went with a 10700KF for $400 with an ozbargain promo a few weeks ago and have it o/clocked to 5Ghz, 46 ring.

    In my mind it was a better deal to purchase CPU and Mobo brand new with AU warranty for slightly more than the RRP of a 5800X at $750. The 11700K will probably retail about the same as the 5800X

    When the 10900k came out , they were close to a grand .
    Doesnt seem like $750 for the best 8 core you can buy seem like that bad a price.
    This 8 core will knock spots off the 10900k too unless you can get them on ln2 and run stupid speeds :)

    I know I'm not sure if I still WTB 11900k myself, I expected it to be on par with the 5800X... Will have to have a think about it.

    Time to whack the CPU on the back of the mobo and have a heatsink the size of the board.
