    Competition always is a good thing ! Battle of the multi cores incoming ... :D

    Only CPU worth grabbing from this lineup is i9 9900k, the price is absurd for 14nm+++~ Tech.

    Wait for next year, Zen 2 comes out with potentially even more cores, lower temps, solder, higher Clock / PPC (compared to gen 1 Zen) for most likely a fraction of this cost.

    I'm curious to know what Intel is doing with the 6 core part I mean did they tweak the die to just not have hyperthreading because that seems wasteful to make a 6core 12thread part only to have all of the extra threads disabled

    I am not that much surprised with i5/i7 having no HT. And price tag is as expected. (Atrocious.)

    If anyone wonders why intel delivers 6 and 8 core CPU w/o HT, it is simple.
    With all those side channel attacks, it is recommended to disable SMT (HT) on intel platform. In other words, in not so far future HT may be seen as poor value in i7. And one would consider 6C/6T i5 equal to 6C/12T i7.
    Therefore they went for real core count distinction. And with i9, they do not expect that many sales anyway.

    i5-9600K seems to be best band for the buck if CPU is to be placed on currently existing board.
    i7-9700K is best bang for buck if price of entire system is taken into consideration.
    i9-9900K is quite some bet on survival of HT for extra $165

    But, how does current i7-8700K with 6C/12T fits in with $360 MSRP? With working HT i7-8700K equals i7-9700K in multithreaded/productivity tasks.

    what insane pricing

    I really dont understand, what is the point of this if you can buy x299 for less today, which all intents and purposes will perform very similarly or better in almost any workload at the same clock speeds, and has more features.

    the 7820x is on sale for 440 euros including vat right now btw.

    Hahaha 700€+ for 9900k Intel nice trolling you can shake hands with nvidia its the same overpriced crap as their new 20 series gpu.

    Do you think that because of all the Ray tracing thingy with new nVidia RTX, game developers will add new features to simulate something similar for non RTX gamer's and put it on the extra workload on the CPU since now there are 8 Core and more in market? So CPU core count will matter in future?

    No. 1st) Developers will use that what DX12 allows them. Raytraced reflection/refraction do same stuff already present in DX since long time. It just does it much more accurately.

    2nd) You would need 32C/64T CPU to do real time raytracing in reasonable quality in real time and with good fps. And it would require quite some memory bandwidth/latency improvements too.

    raytracing is nothing new, that being said, cpucores are not suitable for raytracing in realtime, would still be faster to do it on a gpu without rtx support.

    You'll likely see a "mixed" version of raytracing implemented for use on other gpus , if developers decide to implement raytracing at all.

    This is just bad news after bad news.

    I'm thinking about selling my computer and hoping the next console generation will deliver 60fps (I don't care about 4K, just as long as it's 60fps).

    ^ you just never know with Intel prices do you. If these are even close to being true they're all bonkers prices.

    Still waiting for Zen 2 (Ryzen 3)

    They better do something because they're going to get their teeth kicked down their throats if not.

    Still not sure about their pricing schemes to this day as theyve had ample time to get with the proverbial"program!!"

    Boxed version could come with a AIO liquid cooler for all we know...maybe Intel are actually trying to market it as something big instead of just holding out their hands, because faster. And hell, it's going to be a LOT faster than Ryzen, just in the irrelevant range for most.

    edit: to me it seems the 9900K should be around €600-650 retail around here, so let's see...

    I wish I could say this was surprising.

    And they will sell tons of these at these prices.

    I agree, there will always be people willing to pay that extra amount of money to get the latest and fastest green-blue combo ;)

    I guess a i5 9600K is the new i7 for gamers then? Anything above is overpriced.
