    US MSRP also doesn't include local state tax. Thats gets added at the counter and can be anyware from 10% to 15% depending on the state.

    But even if you ignored the RA issues (btw Intel is international warranty), your still subject to GST and import duties but we don't need to get into the maths for that do we?

    Except when your "facts" gets called out and are based on fallacies.

    Final column on the right.

    Well it's not quite the $900 but still expensive for a "mainstream" cpu. Those reviews against the 2700X will be interesting to see even more so now.

    I think you're reading way too much to simple first post from me doing a simple conversion from USD to AUD. You can make anyone "wrong" by adding conditions like if you lived in California, you need to pay sales tax, or you need to pay retail single unit shipping.

    That table still isnt that clear. Doesnt RCP stand for Recommended Customer Pricing? Isn't that the price customers pay?

    Okay, I googled it, it does stand for "customer"... but intel's customer... not the end customer, which means "recommended" is a bit of an odd term to you. It's not the list price, its the price Intel recommends to itself that it sells it to its customers. Who knows maybe regions have self determination on pricing hence its a head office recommendation so people are less likely to get grey imports.

    So $9 between an 8086k or 9700k. Curious to see if there are many trade off's for 2 more physical cores but 4 fewer threads.

    And whether hyperthreading - between 9700k and 9900k - is worth $200

    there will be no scenario where the 8700k beats the 9700k stock vs stock

    its more than just hyperthreading the difference between these 2 x CPU's

    I slightly disagree, I think it's aimed as a gamer CPU, which is somewhere hyperthreading is seldom utilized so the 8 physical cores and high clocks will make this a fantastic CPU for years and probably not result in any bottlenecking issues.

    Ignore most of those tests if you haven't already watched Hardware Unboxed coverage of them.

    Yes, that is the 'tray' price for customers buying in lots of 1000. The individual price is more.
    Intel are marketing it as a gaming CPU.

    Why, are those tests wrong? Id like to see some 8700k vs 9700k in gaming, ill check HW unboxed coverage.

    It's an Intel owned company doing "independant" test for Intel. :lol:

    Spouting shit. They commissioned a bench marking article. This isn't abnormal in any way. What's abnormal is how they set it up.. while they documented everything accurately in the document it's clear from that they did it unfairly.

    ah yup, the intel results seem ok after seeing HWunboxed but they just gimped the AMD. Doesn't bother me as I wouldn't buy AMD anyway (unless they got their per-core perf up to speed)

    I didn't think Intel owned PT, but they definitely did commission the tests.
