    I always wonder if Der8auer and Intel have an agreement so that he can make tons of money off of delidding tools xD

    the prices for these things is outrageous though... that is just my 5 cents... if it means I would get maybe like 5% extra performance then am sure could spend half the amount and go to the competetitor... not a fanboy of either brand but 2000 dollars for a chip? could get 4 GFX cards for that.

    That's a very expensive hobby. Does der8auer makes loads of money from playing with CPUs or is he already a loadsamoney?

    If you were Intel, you'd have tried to get away with 20 cents. )

    Re: Intel Skylake-X Core i9-7920X delidding reveals large die

    I agree. These HEDT CPU's are crazy expensive. Not buying Intel within the foreseeable future.

    even if the 8th gen i5's and i7's are good value I've already got a R7-1700@3.9GHz so I'll be solid for a good 5 years before even thinking of upgrading again. depending on new technologies of coarse, but even for that I don't really mind waiting.

    AMD's TR1950x looks great though so if I had the need and the money id be looking at that for an upgrade.
