I randomly checked the prices for the 8700K when suggesting to someone how much better value it was than the 1800X, but the 1800X is actually cheaper in some places! I can't believe how much Intel are asking for the 8700K! I thought it was supposed to be only slightly more than the 7700K, but €500 or more? Damn, son. That's more than the 5820K was three years ago.

Has the price risen that much? Darn that's sick! I paid way, way less! One of the few times where being an early adopter paid off.

It's a whole lot cheaper here in the states. The 1800x can be had for $320 shipped while the 8700k is going for $420 and out of stock at most places. This is the first time I can remember the i7 being much over $300! 8600k at $300 looks to be the chip to have right now.

For $300 you think the 8600K is the chip to have? Unless I was purely a gamer and wanted the highest frame rate for my 1080p screen with my GTX 1070 or above, I would buy an R7 1700 or a 1700X. It's significantly faster in everything but gaming, comes with cheaper motherboards, and offers room to grow in the future. At $300 there is no competition, AMD owns that sector in everything but specific gaming demands. If you have $420 to spare and want the best gaming chip that also performs well in other tasks, the 8700K is definitely a solid enough purchase, but the 1800X is still cheaper. The 8600K needs to be $260 in my opinion. Even then with Ryzen's recent price drops I'd strongly consider a 1600X. The 8600K is €330 right now on Mind Factory, a site renowned for being the cheapest in Europe. That's the same price as what an i7 used to cost. A 1600X costs €210, a 1700 costs €289, and a 1700X costs €300. The 8600K is not even remotely competitive in anything but 1080p/144Hz/high-end GPU scenarios. That's the only sector Intel has covered right now, at least in Europe.

I bet AMD's Black Friday prices have made Intel cry.

The 8600k is either faster or as fast as a R7 in pretty much everything and up to 20% faster in gaming. The 1700 is $270 and the 1800 is $320. So yeah, the $300 8600k is the chip to have if you're looking to buy in the $300 price range.

You're right about the 1600x tho. At $200 right now it's the best on the market dollar for dollar. My rig is in it's death throes right now and I'm about 80% sure I'll be buying a 1600x and Asus Strix mobo to refresh it. It peforms almost identically to the 1700 but at $100 less and it looks like the 1600x chips hit 4.0 more often as opposed to the 1700's that seem to be mostly topping out at 3.9. Not that 100 Mhz makes a big difference but 4.0 still looks better on CPU-Z.
