    Re: Intel 8th generation desktop CPU boxes reveal key details

    I just can't see this being a popular upgrade. If you've got an intel CPU from the last 3-4 years, it's probably good enough and better to spend on a GPU or SSD. If you want more cores to run lots of things in parallel then a Ryzen/TR is more cost effective.

    Still plenty of new build OEM sales for Intel of course, but it's just not interesting.

    *Still* happy with my overclocked i7 2600k. I do want a reason to upgrade, but I just can't justify it.

    New mobo makes this an expensive sidegrade to be fair for many

    looking forward to this upgrade as I am far behind and over due. I do wonder if the i3 8350K will have UHD Graphics 630. that info is not out yet.

    If you're spending that much on a cpu a discrete graphics card is a must! Remember you'll need a new mobo as well

    I'm sure intel will 'fix' that 'bug' soon enough.

    Yup I'm pretty sure you'll need a 300 series mobo

    " If you want more cores to run lots of things in parallel then a Ryzen/TR is more cost effective."

    How do you know? Stop it/ just STOP it. Wait for the relese prices and THEN comment.

    You will need a new motherboard. Probably will be cheaper to go down the AMD route in that case if many cores is your need as the motherboards will be a fair bit cheaper than the Intel ones unless Intel change things quite considerably

    Re: Intel 8th generation desktop CPU boxes reveal key details

    A whole load of people already have intel so they'll need a new AMD board. They'll also probably need a new board as there current AMD one is old. Why are we making up reasons to buy AMD?

    Re: Intel 8th generation desktop CPU boxes reveal key details

    The bit that we're talking about is cost effective... the cpu's and boards are cheaper. Why are you defending Intel so much?
    As I said, unless Intel change their historic pricing structure then the AMD route will be cheaper. If they do change their pricing then they will annoy a lot of customers. Can't see them coming in under AMD in any way. So tell me again how Intel will be more cost effective? Even with the current motherboard and cpu prices the boards are quite a lot more for a apples to apples comparison before we even get to the cpu prices

    I think Intel's current greater danger is annoying their shareholders who are used to crazy margins. Crazy margins has enabled Intel to make $billions of mistakes (Atom contra revenue, questionable takeovers, Larabee etc.) without annoying shareholders. Now they will have to be a lot more careful.

    I won't disagree with you on that... but shareholders won't complain for at least a quarter whilst customers will complain a whole lot quicker
