ive wanted a 6 core for ages, nearly went for a ryzen 5 but il wait until this is tested, im sure that the intel platform will cost twice as much though.

Very much this. I'd love to have a hex-core chip from Intel but I just can't see them selling it for £200-250. Right now I think a second hand i7-6700k might be the way to go. We'll see what's about once the cash is ready.

You two above could opt for the 6C/12T upcoming coffee lake LGA1151 CPU? Over 300 quid likely but more affordable than Basin Falls CPUs I reckon.

Back to the slide, you just beat me to it Mark ha ha, nice find! Could someone explain turbo 2 and 3 to me? Why two, I mean?

The i9-7820X (I thought there weren't going to be X SKUs this round, only K (although this shown splitting makes loads more sense) seems to have my name on it; exactly the specs I'm wishing for. I'm good with 28 lanes as well; don't care for SLI and 1-2 M.2 drives and I'm set. Loving a 4.5GHz turbo as well, exactly what I want out of the box. Slap on 100-200MHz more and done. Now, who wants to buy my soul? I'll throw in a bag of peanuts for the lucky taker! Would it be senseless to only run 4X4GB RAM (=affordable) instead of 4x8 (=nearly 500 euro) for 8C/16T?

Interesting line up, if true, and it looks like there's a slot open at the top for a potential 7950X...?

I had an I9 about two years back. That's what they were going to call Westmere but Bulldozer was crap so they never changed the name.

Hey Kaap! How do you mean dodgy? I only know it as suspect?

waste

the 7640k is a complete waste of the i7 branding. it will probably still carry the i7 price premium as well, and barely outperform the i5 7600k its meant to replace. this lineup is completely stupid. if you want a high core intel chip that with low clock speeds and will barely overclock, you can pick up a second hand xeon chip for pretty cheap.
