    If I lived in the EU, I would much rather have an interest in computers than some other form of tech such as cars. Much of the EU has pretty fast and reasonably priced internet and electricity, and though computer hardware is a bit more expensive, there are generally more options.

    Meanwhile if you were something like a car enthusiast, many EU countries have strict regulations on what you're allowed to do, fuel is expensive, and many homes don't have a good place to dedicate the hobby to (such as a reasonably sized garage).


    Anyway, I just hope there are 6 core models below $250, assuming their performance is competitive enough anyway.

    It is not the peoples who have buy their new shiny setup yesterday or 1 year ago, that AMD is targeting. But peoples who buy new PC ( pre builded ), new laptop, or have old setup and who can be interested to change them.

    It is not like many peoples buy cpu's on day one. It is not as for Iphone hé hé.

    Look, my 4930K start to be aged, i have 3x x79 mobo there, I was interested on a 8 cores Intel, good motherboard start at 350$ ( i need a LGA2011-3 socket and last x99 chipsets ). add 1000+ $ for the 6900K.... ( for the rest, i will anway need a new block for the CPU and DDR4 )

    And honestly i dont plan to upgrade it right now.. maybe in some months, i dont know when.. I have allready 2 GPU's to upgrade. In reality i need 4 GPU's slots for computing. ( Blender, Autocad, Revit etc ) And this 6 cores is for the moment way enough for the task ( specially OC )

    boo hoo, cry me a river, you do realise that a LOT of people in the EU work full time for around 300 eur a month? Don't you be telling me Canada or US have it bad.

    As much as I would love to get one 8/16, IF I ever get the money to upgrade, I will probably be looking at 6/12, once it comes out. If it comes out

    your 6700k is still good for a few years. i have the 4790k on another PC going back about 3 years and it's still kicking ass. for now im sticking with Intel until I see some real world performance from these Ryzen cpus.

    What % do they take out of your paycheck on the first dip? Isn't it like 30-60% depending on income?

    man... thats crazy having to give a combined 80% of your income to the man.

    The price of that 1800X in the U.S. is going to make it sell like mad!

    Really? Equivalent to a 6900K? I'll wait for the benchmarks and to see if there are any issues before considering, but this price is going to get AMD back in the game if they live up to the hype.

    Nah, nowhere near that.

    An average salary of say £20k would pay less than 10%, while £100k would pay around 35% income tax.

    VAT can definitely make a difference with stuff like PC hardware.
    The in laws are off to NYC in a few months, but even with 9% sales tax v 20% vat i might not save anything as the would be paying US shop prices instead of UK online.

    Not really. The prices are similar to EU ones, and notice it says "Excl. VAT".

    So, £365+73(20%) = £438*1.25 (current £ to $) = $547.50

    Here in the US, they'll likely price it at $599.

    A half priced Intel i7-6900K competitor will sell like crazy if it's performance competitive. New 6900Ks still cost $1049.

    I don't think anywhere in the US has tax at 20% though, less than 10% for most.

    This is definitely not premium pricing, it's not cheap either which maybe some are expecting.

    It's hard to spot now days who is trolling and who isn't. Some are just confused.
