    I agree with Petr V. Why give up multi-threading (eight of them!) and patronize the company that has held back progress so long, when you can buy much more advanced chips from AMD? For an invisible FPS difference in some game that's probably played 1% of the time?

    I say: buy AMD if you possibly can. They've worked a miracle, are delivering real features on every front, and deserve every benefit of the doubt - and we need them in the market!. Don't be swindled by Intel's endless marketing tricks and misinformation, which they rely on more every year.

    Well, the piece of news mentioned water cooling so one could guess a 280mm or bigger.

    I expect 5,2 GHz in realistic conditions from i7, but not as much from i9. i7 and especially i9 will run very hot, so probably safer to just leave them at 5 GHz if you can reach that. This time water cooling is not a necessity, but I doubt something like Thermalright Macho B Rev 2 can keep i7 under 80 C with a clock of 5 GHz. If i7-9700K costs under 400 €, then it will be a fine deal if you are prepared with a good air ventilation and cooling solution. Over 400 € it's just not worth it and you can go straight with R7 2700X.

    i5-9600K is probably a decent buy for very competitive gamers who want maximum FPS in their games and for those who just want 144 FPS all the time in games at the cost of graphical quality. i5 might be the real deal here, since it offers marginally something that AMD does currently not, but the more expensive options are for who? Content creators got to be real serious with their business if they are willing to pay for those chips and cool them properly at the same time.

    5.5Ghz on Regular w/c now that is Impressive! The fastest ive ever had was 4.7Ghz on my old Fx 9370 I cant even begin to Imagine how fast that things is wow!
    Intel for sure winning the clock-speed war!

    I like how solder is magically ok now when they defended using tooth paste because of micro cracks or some bs with solder on such a small lithography.

    Its only because AMD their 6 and now 8 core cpu are available for mainstream without AMD they will be stucked completly not only on 14nm but on 4c/8t too.

    this is exactly what you would expect, an 8600k (6cores without hyperthreading)@5ghz gets 1250~ points, this cpu has 8 cores(no hyperthreading) so roughly (1/3) more cores which equates to an estimated 1670~ points roughly at 5.0ghz then we take the frequency difference (5.5/5.0) 10% more frequency , means roughtly 1830~ points, which is right where this lands.

    I love cinebench its so predictable.

    The math adds op correctly yes, i guess i am just shocked that Hypertreading/SMT makes up for the more then 1000MHz handicap the AMD 2700x has, compaired to the 9700K.

    Intel 7700K / 8700K / 8086K all top out @5.3GHz without LN2

    8086K O/C too 5.3GHz
    https://siliconlottery.com/collections/all/products/8086k53g

    My 8700K @5.1GHz @1.41v with 75c load Cooled by EK

    So glad I didn't buy an overpriced 1800X last year...

    9900K/9700K are both going to top out @5.5GHz without LN2

    9900K & 2080Ti is the unstoppable combination for 2018 best CPU & GPU for gaming!

    Intel and Nvidia are the real deal

    Glad for you. At least you able to tell others you got high numbers.

    It’s amazing what a bit of solder can do too bump up frequencies.
