    My 8700K does 5.3Ghz at 1.35v and I'll still buy probably buy a 9900K, I also have the Apex X so hoping it'll work in there, see no reason why it shouldn't, other than Intel just not wanting it to of course lol

    The "gains" based on title wording. Yes due to added cores, but thats what we mostly go by now, multi-core performance. Expected price around $450. Typically a part like this would have gone for $1000.

    I wouldn't recommend this CPU over a 8700K for gaming, as I don't recommend upgrading from ryzen1 to ryzen2 (as every web arround).

    Gaming depends on IPC, speed and cache's sizes/latencys. If these remain the same, the only possibility to see an improvement in gaming depends on games that use eight cores, because Intel's physical cores are much stronger than hiperthreaded, if we see an improvement at all.

    I'll wait for zen2/ryzen3 more secure/cheaper/faster/stronger chips for gaming/working.

    Bye/;)

    Well more and more games are using more cores, specially if you only play the triple A titles, extra cores also means that games that use DRM won't be as hit as those with less cores AC origins was a good example of that. But you;re right the improvements will be small for gaming, specially if you're playing on 1440p+ where cpu gains count for a lot less.

    One nice thing about this chip over the 8700k though is the rumour it will be soldered, making it much better for overclocking, life longevity and it should in theory run a lot cooler.

    Though i recommend no one pre-orders it as we wait for reviews to see where it truely stacks up, and if its worth the price per performance

    Im not sure why the hype is strong, this will perform similarly to a 7820x with the benefits of the ring bus, slightly more overclocking headroom and half the bandwidth, it ain't anything to write home about.

    if you are going to buy this ,you'd might as well buy x299 today rather than wait. its a better platform and similar or better performance can be achieved for likely a similar price.

    this product is wayyyy to late imho and isn't significantly better than what you can already buy from intel, i hardly see the point.

    Shure, and if you have an i5 8600 it will be nice to upgrade to an 9900K (if rumors became true), like in AMD's boards.

    Nowadays most of chips are powerfull enough for me, but I'm more concerned about security, like in movile devices that can be stolen, and Intel chips in notebooks that can be quite easily hacked via USB... so I'm expecting to renew my whole ecosystem for something more secure than faster.

    Eh? I remember Intel fanboys being all up in arms about AMD fanboys invading their threads. So do you want us to invade your threads or don't you? :p

    And you're cool with going around affirming you're a fanboy? I mean you sound like you're proud to be a fanboy

    So adding extra cores increase your compute overal perfomance? Who would have though ?!
    Now jokes aside i am really eager to see the battle between those puppies an the zen2 ! I smell a bloody battle!

    The term wasn't originally intended to be negative. Nothing wrong with being a fan of something.

    I´m interested in seeing the battle between Zen2 and Ice Lake. The 9000 series are basically the same as before only with more cores so the performance is predictable.

    New mobo chipset means new features. It is not always white or black with technology.

    Been saying for awhile now, that the clock race is over... its going to be all about cores now, as silly as it sounds. with current technology we reach thermal thresholds too easy soon as we reach the 5ghz mark. so either we can all go and get liquid nitrogen for our machines, all we get bigger chips with more cores to spread the load better.

    At first us having more cores (specially if they run at a lower clock) might seem worse, but as programmers start to make these for more cores it will level out and actually become better performing for us. we already see some games start to use 6/8+ cores so i think the industry knows in some ways this is where we are going to go.

    @Ricepudding agreed although it is a long proccess to transition and we are in the middle of it!

    Without Ryzen that CPU would cost twice as much.

    It won't. AMD uses PGA, so it needs motherboard. Intel, on the other hand, uses LGA, so needs fatherboard.

    It's wrong and also stupid to be a fan a of profit corporation, since they're never doing people's interests, but rather, their own.

    Totally, it might be many years depending on how long it takes for consumers and developers to totally embrace having machines with 4+ cores, too many laptops and smallers pcs are using dual cores so many developers just dont care, game developers are a little different since the consoles use 8 cores, and many pc gamers have at least 4 cores.

    I can see it now, in a year my i7 7700 won't even make the list anymore. I am glad for the improvements but, I can't keep up with the movement!

    just keep it ....you have a great processor...I'm still on 2600k

    just get a new monitor and graphics card
