    "Next Gen Motherboard", they swapped the chipset from the Kaby Chipset to the Cannonlake one, wow such progress.

    Call me confused, but haven't they only recently launched the 8 series chips? Also with all the production woes :S AMD really must have them sweating!

    Yes, the 9xxx series are refreshes of the 8xxx series with 8 cores added to the line-up, the process node may be tweaked as well, not sure on that as I thought the 8xxx series were already 14nm++?

    Wuw, much pricy, no pointy. The cost outweighs everything here, its high end consumer or enthusiast. they shouldn't create a new platform to fill a market that does not need to exist

    I'm not sure who is worse for fragmentation right now, Google or Intel.

    I think that this may be a play to get those of us that are still running i5-2500Ks to upgrade. I'm actually interested in this. Intel's platform has limitations and so does AMDs. Right now, for the price, I am leaning towards the i9. I may still wait for the i10 or Zen2, but they are still a year away at least.
