Gotcha, AMD offers a lot of value and for streaming getting 16 threads for so cheap makes it a no brainer. There's really no reason to get the 9900k for a 5ghz clockspeed. Really the only thing it will be better at is being paired with a 2080ti at 1080p... which is just useless since it's so overkill already and can do 240fps for the few 240hz monitor users with current setups.
I mean it could be good for rendering in specific scenarios. Having enough threads but very high clockspeed instead of more threads less clockspeed.

Intel have let their market position go to their heads with these prices, I'm glad AMD are doing well and slowly taking back market share.

Intel is prettmuch handing AMD market share back with these prices.

I know a lot of the PCMR group has this warped vision of 5ghz and 200+ fps in games or go home, but even then, for the vast majority of gamers, a ryzen is absolutely fine.

There should be laws about the pricing IMO. How can you advertise something, then it retails for $120 more?

Also lol @ 8/8, jokers. Will get taken to bits by Ryzen 8/16.

I swear, if you rammed a lump of coal up Intel's backside you could have a diamond within a week.

I also typed up a post last week about this box but the net cut out... Basically I reckon you'll see those for about a week, before they go back to the boggy std cardboard affair.

Intel must be mad with those prices.

My next CPU will be an AMD one, yes they might be slower in games but when you can get a 12 core 24 thread Threadripper cpu for half the price this just shows, how greedy Intel are being.

The thing is, the gaming lead everyone talks about diminishes as you increase resolution. I mean if you want 1080p 240 fps then sure. But I'm gaming at 3440x1440, am I really going to drop all that cash for less that 5%? Hell no.

I game at 4k ATM on a 3.2ghz 14 core Broadwell. It's quite amazing really, you really don't need anything faster for that res.

I run my games at 1080p because I run my gaming machine through a 2nd machine with a Elgato capture card fitted so I only have 1080p show up, although my monitors are 4K.

The drop in frame rates might not be around though by the time I need to upgrade my cpu, as my 7700K is doing just fine now and will be fine in the future I reckon for probably another 2 or more years.

Either way AMD is and will be looking better to alot more people these days if they actually use common sense but, that is asking alot for some of them I know but hey they might start paying attention now.

This pricing isn't really surprising. Just look how much the 8700k has gone up in the past few months. It wasn't that long ago that it could be had for under £300 (GBP) today it's over £450 - a 50% price increase.


The weird thing is, and I mentioned this is a post not so long ago, many sites still appear to be quoting the older prices, not the actual ones.

So, 30% more cost for 30% more Cores from the 8700k to the 9900k seems pretty much spot on to me...if one ignores the huge inflation on the 8700k!


If it wasn't for Ryzen, we'd likely think the 9900k offered good value

Pricing is utter madness, I looked about at other coffee lake cpus to get a reference and cant believe the prices I bought an 8600k and asus prime motherboard for £360 back in February, ocuk want £330 just for the i5, what the hell happened did Intel forget that AMD are giving them hell.
