    i5 9600k at £205? not likely in my opinion. Add another £40-£50. Considering the i5 8600k is like £240

    I would surmise that the UK price will be more like the dollar equivalent. i.e. £460 - ish
    for the i9-9900k

    Re: Intel Core 9000 Series processor prices spotted in Singapore

    so if the 2700X is £300 and the 9900K is £400 the real question is, is it 33% better ?

    Given the very high clocks (4.7Ghz turbo with all cores) it might be ~20% faster in MT workloads. For gaming it will be the same as 8700K, maybe a bit better thanks to higher turbos. All in all, these new CPUs are nothing amazing, it all boils down to price.

    Which would probably be about right, once you stick on VAT.

    The way I'm rationalizing it is, I'm coming from a 2700K/DDR3 base, so the performance gain has to be worth the upgrade cost. In the past, graphics cards were kinda easy to justify, because not only did they give a performance leap, but in more than a few cases, they straight up improved the enjoyment of games. But paying ~£600 just to get a few FPS from a CPU upgrade was impossible to justify. Nowadays however, I'm starting to see real performance degradation, and the CPU upgrade will not only give me a big enough boost, but also future proof it for I hope at least another 7 years.

    In a similar situation where I'm due an upgrade, and coming from a 2600K / DDR3 base. I'm looking at the overall platform cost, as mentioned above there is no way the pricing for the i9 / i7 is going to come out at those prices, it's more likely to come closer to a direct 1:1 ratio with £US pricing as in the past. Even going by the £UK price, it's still more money than you would be paying for a 2700X for comparable performance in some scenarios like gaming.

    By the time you factor in a new motherboard, memory, graphics card etc, I think I'd rather opt for the AMD platform on this upgrade cycle and spend that money directly on either more memory, more storage or a better graphics card. Those few extra couple of hundred Mhz are not going to make as much difference to me personally compared to a better GPU or more memory or more storage.

    That's assuming the pricing is accurate.

    OilSheikh If your shipment gets noticed at customs, you will be paying import duty and vat + the courier cost and it will end up costing you more than buying via a distributor. If you want to buy from abroad and avoid the taxes, you are best to travel there and try to carry it back in hand luggage or if you know someone in that country get them to buy it for you and send it to you.
    Don’t forget that doing it that way also means you have no warranty

    It's gonna be more like 320$ vs 460-480$. Which will be more than 33%.
    As for performance at stock definitely not, but OC'ed to like 5.2GHz (if that's even possible) those CPU's will be crazy fast at everything and it could be as high as a 35-40% in multi-treading and even higher for low core count operations and memory intensive applications like games, but its hard to say for sure. We will need to see how well HT scales to 16 threads and if the ring-bus can handle them threads efficiently.

    The 2700 is £250 and the 2700X is £285 and the latter comes with a hefty stock cooler too. The K series Intel CPUs need a cooler even to run at stock clockspeeds so it's £400 and at least £20 to £30 for a cooler to be able to maintain decent clockspeeds.

    I totally agree with you on that and remember you get a great cooler with the 2700x. I myself went for a R7-1700 build and could go up to a GTX1080ti as apposed to my original GTX1080 budget.
    This was just from total platform costs between a 8700k system and a AMD R7-1700 based system.

    It seems people spend way too much on CPU's for gaming these days. If you're only gaming I'd say the R5-1600/2600 would be the better buy's and for some productivity/streaming and longevity the 2700x, but almost never the 8700k (though I understand some arguments for the intel build) though for 99% of people either the 6 or 8 core would be the better buys.

    With the above said if I were you, I'd wait for Ryzen 3000 TBH.

    I agree though not too sure about the pricing. It has to be noted that if those new CPU's drop we will probably see even better prices on AMD products.

    I'd go further and say that if you are literally only gaming then a Ryzen 5 1500X (or 2500X when it's available) should be fine - I don't think there are that many games out there that benefit from more than 8 threads?

    I suspect the price difference between the 4 and 6 core CPU would pay for faster RAM, which we *know* improves Ryzen performance...

    Re: Intel Core 9000 Series processor prices spotted in Singapore

    I'm building a new system from scratch.

    In the US, my Mini-ITX builds with the 2700X and the 8700K are only $10 different (cheaper/more options for Intel mobos). With the 9700K only about $25 more tha the 8700k, I think I'll go Intel. I do about 50/50 gaming and CAD/Blender rendering, and the 9700K is going to be better at MC than the 8700K but also better at gaming than the 2700X. Plus, since it's an ITX build, the Intel chip will hopefully run cooler with OCing.
