    There will lots of "Will / Will not / Could / Could not / Might / Might not / Maybe" until actual release. Youtubers make money on building hype and spreading rumors. People love them!

    A wiser decision would be read to reviews when it released, see performance difference and what motherboards (chipset) has better price performance to pair with.

    just order a 9900k setup ...guaranteed to be faster/cheaper.

    and hey the motherboard doesn't need an integrated fan to keep it cool.

    Cant wait AMD show your wrong. Only a mad man would buy an overpriced Intel system atm.

    AMD's 4.7Ghz with 12% IPC uplift = Intel's 5.25Ghz! how that is low?

    because they can do 5ghz easily.

    They need to save something for next CES/Computex :).
    For now all the good chips are going for EPYC and new TR.
    IMO the 16C TR will got 5Ghz as the lowest core count TR3.

    If they did a 5ghz 16c it would be a masacre.

    Tgought about it, but really want to see what AMD has to offer. With that said like with all good hardware releases, will supply and demand be there. I remember when the 970 gpus were released. I tried day and night for weeks before I could get one and even then I didn't get the one I wanted.

    What would I use a 8 or even 12 core cpu for? Isn't most games only use 4 or 6 core?

    Wow, that really puts my 1950X to shame - 3.4 GHz base / 4.0 GHz boost @ 180 watts vs 3.5 GHz base / 4.7 GHz boost @ 105 watts (and that's not including the IPC improvements). Gotta wonder what next-gen Threadripper will look like?

    Reminds of me a video I watched today - retesting the R5 1600 vs i5 7600K:

    Despite a hefty clock speed disadvantage (3.9 GHz vs 4.8 GHz for the overclocked results), the 6c/12t R5 1600 is close to the 4c/4t i5 7600K in several games and completely outpaces it in several modern games, beating the i5 by up to 25% (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Battlefield V and The Division 2). It really shows the importance of having more cores for modern games. If you are planning on keeping your CPU for a long time, then I would say a 6-core CPU is the bare minimum (8c+ would be ideal).

    As CPU norms change, games are starting to be much more thread friendly these days, and the number of threads with most common CPUs (4/6/8 cores) is becoming only a partial issue in many cases. Instead, in many situations, the problem also lies with software programming and possible logic limitations, as higher numbers of cores/threads increase complexity induced latency. Consequently, to take advantage of higher core and thread counts, a much greater per thread performance is still needed. Clearly, balance is important, and this also affects the way games are designed.

    So, looking at a few game reviews on a tech site such as this usually gives you a good idea of current trends concerning CPUs, and if there is any real benefit in most situations. Beyond that, the choice is yours, because there will always be the possibility of gaining that addition few percentage improvements for various reasons.
