That's a shame. But if the prices are right for the 8 cores then it could still be fine and dandy.

Shame, that's the one I think could give Intel the most competition

Not surprised considering its built on blocks of 4. I never suspected 6 core chips. It's great though that the minimum core count is 4. We need to move on from dual core chips. It's 2017.

Well that surely means the 8c (with no HT) will be priced to compete with the 7700K, doesn't it?

That's true, I was expecting a 6 core version to be like Phenom, 8 core with 2 cores disabled.

Not sure about that.... Basically the 4 core will compete with the I5 and the 4c 8t will compete with the I7 and then the 8c 8t will probably compete with the hex core Intel (5820k etc) and so on.

I have never tried my 8c 16t Xeon with HT disabled. Maybe if I can be bothered later I will visit bios, disable HT and see how it stacks up against having HT enabled.

I would imagine it would be close. Like 8c 8t vs 6 core HT. So the vanilla 8 will probably go up against the 6c 12t Intels
