    Great going Intel, totally unenecessary and unwanted plastic waste.

    I do like how the package looks like, but that is so much wasted space on shipping. Taking so much just plain air space...
    As shipping is also issue atm, why do this as this would just increase the retail cost of products.

    So don't order these from Amazon. I can see the crooks rubbing their hands right now waiting to send back cheap cpus inside the pretty pretty gold case that no Amazon employee will ever bother to open to check the return. [​IMG]

    This is less of a waste of space and shipping load compared to the near-useless stock heatsinks Intel would provide in lower-end models. This packaging does actually look kinda cool.

    Its odd how much effort Intel and AMD spend on making pretty boxes.

    While I've previously really liked some of the older boxes from the Threadripper and even the 9900K etc, the plastic waste does seem a little out of place nowadays. Consequently I really quite like the current ones that come in a plain cardboard box.

    Have you seen how Amazon packages items for shipping? Shipping companies won't know the difference. Last thing I ordered from Amazon came in a box big enough to hold a few dozen of the item I ordered.... Hell, when I ordered my current wifi card, it came in a 24" x 24" x 24" box.....

    I like the package - it's something new and it looks cool.

    I prefer simple packages instead of elaborated ones but that´s me.

    I'm glad to see that Intel chose to be creative (and elaborate) with this packaging. It reveals that they take great pride in this product.
