    Bet you it's a damn site more than £370 when it goes on sale in the good old (rip off) UK!
    Live long and prosper.

    I know it's wishful thinking, but I hope this comes in around 5% better than the AMD part and just *nobody* buys it.

    From a few leaks that I've seen, it's going to be a 95W part. I guess they're able to go as high as 105W to keep on speaking terms with AMDs 2700X.

    Well, aside from $583 being more like £447, are you VAT registered?
    As I make it more like £447 + VAT, that is £536 at least minimum.

    Turbo clocks of up to 5.0GHz
    That's as fast as my i5-2500k!

    I'm liking the idea that the number of sides on the box should represent the number of cores.

    You'd not sell a lot of single core processors though.

    I think we should have Tesseract shaped boxes for quad core CPUs.

    The only reason to buy it is if you're a gamer who wants the highest framerates and has a lot of money to waste.

    For a content creator...no idea why you would pick Intel over AMD.

    At that price I think you could compare 9900k to Threadripper.

    Intel are still best at single threaded tasks and you just mentioned things that like multi-core. Just get the 2700X.
