So, finally Intel stops overcharging for HT (as if they had a choice). New socket, again. For 199USD you can have the R5 3600 equivalent, but base clock is just 3.1Ghz 409USD for a 10 core, but only reaches 2.7Ghz base clock. So many SKU, guess they're binning all they can to try desperately drive the cost down. It's too late for me, my mind is set on AMD, but I'm exited to see these two fight!
