    Poland :

    5800X : ~450E
    11700k/kf ( priced almost same) : 425E.

    I would pay that 25 Extra for ryzen , you can even use it with stock cooling and it's better overall performer.

    11400f is great deal from Intel right now , 11700 is not.

    5900x - 690eur
    11900kf - 570eur
    10900kf - 415eur
    10850k - 395eur

    it's a no brainer atm.

    nice test from purepc btw. finaly good test with OC ram.

    10850k looks kinda good , its worse binned 10900k yea ? much difference there ? you get 10 cores ( same speed cores) as 11900kf and free cooling at this price point :)

    no it's pretty much the same,I don't think it clocks any different form 10900k
    it's prolly the most valid test,since pretty much everyone buying an i9/r9 is gonna use fast memory and tweak timings.
    don't bother with intel's box cooler.

    10400F 11400F 5600X awesome choices and sadly 5600x costs 2X of 10400F and 10400K here. 360 water cooling needed for other ones.

    I saw techpowerup take on this and it preformed better then 11900K because i9 boosted too high too soon and used up all TDP reserves, then it throttled more..


    If I manage gear1 3600mhz and then undervolt cpu a little it would run faster then CometLake, nexus yt gear1 vs gear2 test. But I won't buy this yet, dont see the need.. need stronger gpu first :D

    Not bad at all, a little cheaper than the 5800x and at least 10C cooler at full load (according to HH's results) regardless of the higher power consumption.
    The lack of PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes is a no go for those who go with the fastest M.2's though.
    Got to agree with most here to go with the 5800x/5600x or the 11400F instead if on a tight budget.

    You can cool the 5800x on air, just need one of the few good air coolers that manages it.

    5800x can be cooled on a stock wraith prism cooler and still be faster than these intel cpus.

    can,but shouldn't.
    and it'll boost lower.
    if you're buying a 450eur cpu because of a box cooler you are either stupid or steve from hub.

    there's 30eur difference between 11700kf and 5800x

    https://geizhals.de/intel-core-i7-11700kf-bx8070811700kf-a2484310.html
    and you're better off with a freezer34 esports, 200w tdp.

    dude wraith prism is worse than most 20-30 eur coolers and it sounds like a jet engine
    [​IMG]

    just get a 10700kf and freezer 34es , save 100-150 eur and enjoy the same gaming performance as 11th gen/r5000

    it's a non issue if you know how sequential transfer numbers differ from actual every day peformance.
    my plextor m9pe,a 2018 drive,running on z97 w. pci-e 2.0,had the same random r/w performance and app loading times as those new pci-e 4.0 drives.
    sn850/980pro are the first drives since nvme became a thing that really made your experience better,with a new controller.otherwise you don't need 4.0

    Where did Intel get this 19% IPC increase from? Most i have seen is 13.6 typically 12% but in real applications it's more of nill or in regression, a terrible product TBH.

    AVX512 probably, a workload like .03% of applications use.

    Think you misunderstood, some still need drives WD SN850, 980 Pro and even the slower Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus / Corsair MP600 Pro though.

    For most mainstream app/game loading even SATA SSD's will do, no marginal difference there, hence why I use a big 870 EVO for games.
    But even that will change in the near future.

    They gained vs previous gen on cinebench and that doesnt use avx512.

    The problem intel have is they have gone down the same path as the pentium 4 days, they stopped caring about power efficiency.

    I maintain the view if they cannot release a good new product then they simply should not have released a new product, a "we working on out next thing, and its released when its ready" is better than releasing junk.

    Thats the problem with modern tech companies these days, they seem to release on schedule rather than when something much better is ready.

    Really?
    With an NZXT X73 the package goes beyond 80C with default BIOS settings, so unless you tweak it will hit temperatures with a wraith prism that forces it to throttle down.
    The same cooler keeps a 3700x and 4790K around 65C max at stock settings, so the 5800x is undeniable a CPU that can hit quite high temperatures.

    The i9 9900K sure is aging well. Not even WORTH upgrading to latest gen if you're on a 9900K..

    Of course no. Not even in 2-3 years.
