So it's EXACTLY the same apart from a custom (if you can call it that) IHS.

What's the point? I thought it was going to be a binned CPU with slightly higher clocks but clearly not.

Actually, Lisa Su is going to be 50 in November this year as well. It's just her CPU.

I tell you what it's better than.

£185 core I3 with two cores and four threads.

So go Lisa, I say. Ryzen is like Flash. It's saved every one of us.

I recently upgraded from my old 2500k to a Ryzen 1700 system and the difference is amazing and it only cost me £155 for the chip now that is a deal I won't be going back to Intel anytime soon, thou I will pick up an end of life Ryzen chip once AM4 is no more.

AMD is doing well right now and I hope it continues and they start to gain even more market share, they deserve it atm.

Yup and what did we have before? A CPU pretty much identical, slower even (the 5960X for a grand).

Intel's idea of a celebration is a unlocked dual core Pentium, with a price premium.

I really can't believe any one would see anything negative in this at all.

To be fair I guess some people wanted something they could actually use. I don't know what kind of heretic would smear thermal paste in Lisa Su's signature.

These types of products are usually for collectors who will put them in glass cabinets.

Its simply a limited number IHS' will get laser etching and a different box. No extra R&D,testing, marketing, ES', reviews ect why would you when it will be competing against your own launch due in the very near future.
My gut feeling is that intel held back the 8700k so that they had a reason to charge more for the 8086k, which by coincidence the "limited edition" 8086k are still available in most retailers....

They should have released zen 2 for their 50th and made a real big song and dance about it. The media would have loved it "AMD hits gold on 50th birthday" ect.
