Probably because they bought too much stock in anticipation of more idiots than they actually got.
Some leaked prices: https://twitter.com/elchapuzas/status/1047411367928647680
Core i9-9900K (595€), i7-9700K (459€) e i5-9600K (315€). 595€ is 960 AUD lol
Well idiots need processors & the big ones were $800 2.7K here. What the Actual fuKK ... on affording those I'll wait another 4 years till I can afford s/h
When are the new cpus launching/ hitting the shelves?
Rumour is October 19th (20th) is the launch. Not sure if that's also when they will be available to buy.
509 Aud for an i5 - that can't be right?
I just saw a tear down on the new Asrock Z390 Taichi from other forum who managed to buy one of these ahead of time: https://www.chiphell.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=1915173&extra=page=1&filter=typeid&typeid=222
The board is controlled by an IR 35201 (In 6+2 configuration), a 12+2 power delivery with 40A TI 87350D NexFet doubled by IR3598: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/csd87350q5d.pdf
IGPU portion seem to be using Sinopower 7341EH which is a 25A Dual NFet Asrock love to use in their mid/low end boards in my memory. This board is a huge step up from the Z370 Taichi with better power delivery than my M10A
I'm going to be broke at the predicted prices
I've already budgeted 700 for the CPU and 500 for the Mobo and I think that 700 might be a bit short :S
9700K and Asus Z390 GENE is on my list!
Yeah basically the same, was willing to go $800 on the 9900k but man the 1k mark is just way too much for what it is. Guess ill get the 9700k.
Outrageous price hikes now so next cpu/gpu release its "the norm"
Much like nvidia making the 1080tis look rather attractive again, the old 8700k is starting to look pretty sexy at ~$540 AUD.
Especially now that whole 8086k binning thing is done...
2 more cores won't help gamers, who are still generally held back by a single core / clock speeds if not gpu limited.... and lack of ram channels / pci-e lanes wont help anyone doing serious work or just hard out benching. Kinda leaves it in an odd place if they do price em so high.
But, suckers do like to part with their money easily, and intel are more than happy to oblige.
If they settle to 650-700 sure, but 900-1000?... dreaming. lol
I suppose I'm asking a very frustrating and repetitive question but do we have any indication of price / dates for Aus yet (even leaks / rumors?)
I'm in the US from 11'th Oct -> 24'th Oct. I could physically pick up, or ship (express) some stuff to the place I'm staying. +7% tax sadly.
So if the processor ends up being $499 US, it'll cost me $533 US ($753 AUD) before shipping.
Also, need to bring it back into the country (anyone done this recently, since the crappy GST changes for imports? be damned if I'd declare it)
I wonder if that's simply a requirement that the new boards support the i9 9900k? I saw this yesterday, z390 / z370 comparison at the bottom end AsRock.
Even that has at least got a larger heatsink on the VRMs
I'm expecting $850 for the CPU, but I use cheaper boards, probably $350 for me regardless, OUCH.
Wait till you see the used prices on ebay for the 8700k and the 8700 regular (As low as $360 shipped)
It certainly tests your resolve to buy the best of the best 9900k
and yeah, generally used CPUs are fine. I'd always buy a new board though.
It definitely is but again I think we are still gonna have Z390 boards with crappy VRM that is only gonna be good for a 9900K at stock unless you have active cooling on the VRM.
Honestly, I'm actually ok with 9900k at stock.
if you bought a quality z370 board to begin with the vrms will be fine
I did not, so I sold it.
I'm still of 2 minds, I'd love a 9900k but I've seen Intel 8700 stock for only $350 on ebay, I'd love one of those also at a much cheaper price. However can't spot any at the moment.
Are people receptive in the wanted section here? I figure most people here wouldn't even have a non k CPU?
For people who already have DDR4 RAM the upgrade really only involves CPU and motherboard, which might be $1000 to $1100. To me this is a fair price to spend for this sort of chip (I'm assuming we can get all 8 cores to 5 GHz).
I'm replacing or updating everything but the case, cpu cooler and my grahpics cards (not giving up on my SLI 980ti's just yet). New cpu, mobo, ram, I've got a 1tb storage SSD I'm keeping, but I'm adding a 500gb 970 Evo as a boot drive with a 1tb Evo as the main storage. I'm swapping the front and radiator case fans with Noctua Industrial PWM's. Even throwing in a $15 DVD Burner and got a really cheap Nvidia high bandwidth SLI bridge.
I was going with a 970 Pro as the boot drive but Umart don't have stock so I'm slightly downgrading that to the Evo. Also had to adjust memory for the same reason. Those two changes save about $100 that looks like going to Intel that I'd rather spend on Battlefield V.
Hopefully Microsoft will let me change my Win 7 license to W10 or that's another ~$150 down the drain. Without W10 it's going to be just under $3,000.
With the monitor and peripherals, this build will be worth more than my car is worth.
