    $488 US + 10% GST = 536 US x convert to AUD = $750 AUD minimum price really, right?
    Maybe even $799 / $849 AUD launch price, just ... not great

    I'm happy to go up to $800, any more than that and it's plain stupidity.

    yeh. 750 absolute minimum. which it'll never ever be in reality. not now and probably not ever.

    the climate for consumers at this point in time is as bad as it gets. the marketers upselling with "supply shortages" lol dudes. plus it is a premium high end product.... lots of luck with your purchase! :D

    Dunno about the climate being the worst for consumers.. the 9900k isn't the 8700k. The focus should be on the similarly priced 9700k vs 8700k and how much of a performance gain is there. Keen to see the benchmarks.

    But yes, short supply driving price up sucks. Just wait it out.

    I’d guess closer to the 850 mark... interesting to see if we get good supply.

    9700k vs 8700k ?
    microscopic. some tiny stock clock speed bump

    i think there is a tiny ipc improvement with 9700 vs 8700...the youtube reviewers will be all over it shortly.

    There is some third party benchmarks here. But mostly it's 4 to 6% increase in games at 1080p.

    Short supply due to Apple radio chips (so they claim) - Intel are making a LOT - took a % of production for processors out of the equation.
    Plus AUD tanking.
    Plus it's Intel.

    All 3 combined, we're looking at 1k$ minimum for the 9900k and a board.

    No idea yet. They only test 1080p since that's more CPU intensive. Higher res the GPU takes over more.

    The pricing of the Z390 boards says it all, one would have to pay 200 aud + just for a basic Z390 board is ridiculous.

    Nothing stopping you with using a Z370 board.....

    This.. Z390 is a 'premium' revision. Wifi and whatever else it had I forget. No real reason to buy them unless you want those features.

    The Wifi is optional as well.... Note not all Z390 will come with the WIFI + BT as std

    Always expected the 9900K prices to line up around the 7820X. Once the initial surge prices goes away it will most likely be cheaper than a 7820X

    seriously i think the z390 boards are at least a step up in power delivery. so it is what it is...

    But is it really? And is it really that important? At the end of the day Intel needs to make sure that these CPU work on the cheapest nastiest H310 mainboard as advertised.

    with zero OC for the warranty period of the board, and a cpu that throttles as required.

    True, but the the same can be said about any mainboard and Intel doesn't really provide warranty on CPU OC unless you buy their CPU protection plan.

    I always thought CPU throttling is more a product of heat not power delivery.

    cheaper lower rated mosfets , inductors etc will produce more heat per given amount of volts required by the cpu at various speed.

    fet heatsinks, copper pcb power plane. lowering oc and ultimately reducing lifespan of the fets.

    power delivery to the cpu.

    it isnt the cpu that'll fail its the motherboard. frying itself to death or shutting down when the fets reach 118C or thereabouts. say you run it at 115C constantly without shutdowns? guaranteeing minumum lifespan of that particular vrm component
