Question Anyone Hopping To X299 The End Of June?

Not overly thrilled by the performance from the Z270/7700K combo so looking to hop to the X299 with a 6-8 core CPU. Anyone else looking to make the jump?

May want to rethink that with Whitehaven / Threadripper coming out around the same time.

I'd be surprised if intel didnt charge your soul, your children's souls, your parents souls, and that one family member no one really talks about soul for there new x299 cpus. I dont see them dropping prices to be competitive with amds whitehaven cpus.

I'm just sitting here with my popcorn while the two duke it out, I'm waiting to see what Intel's response to Ryzen is much less the threadripper.
I love market competition, I've loved Intel for so long hard to think about switching, but for the cost and comparable features/performance its looking more and more reasonable.

Just jumped onto X99 and Broadwell-E in November. I'll be sitting this one out.

Maybe jump to a Zen+ or further in the future platform though. Good thing for consumers is, yes, AMD will be bringing Intel's prices back down to earth.

I highly doubt Intel will be altering any pricing.

X79 Is still where I'm at. Not seeing much reason to upgrade these days.

They're announcing it August 21st. They pulled up it's launch a LOT because of Ryzen.

i7 8700K will be 6 core 12 thread. Holy smokes AMD finally got them to increase core count on consumer platform!

AMD is beating them to the punch releasing the 1950X and 1920X tomorrow, almost a full month earlier and appears more bang for the buck (for the i9 comparable).

Agreed on the month lead, but I though in games intels faster clocks will still lead with the 8700k.

Depends on the game, if its multicore capable more cores will win out in the end (though most games today only need a 4c, the load is on GPU primarily).

Right now its 460$ for the 1800X or 360$ for the 1700x and both with 8c/16t likely beat or come close to the 8700k even at a slightly lower base clock speed, the question in my mind is where the 8700k will be priced.

The current price listing and performance list it on par with the 1700x: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/desktop.html

Thanks Spart, I'll have to do some research today I think. I thought I saw some stuff when Ryzen first came out and it was great for many things but games the 6700k and 7700k still had it.

Yes but not by a big enough margin that it made it unworkable for the people that did more than game and ran programs that were multi core aware.So it boils down to what you're doing with your computer.

So in my case it'll be gaming and video encoding. Where the primary focus by a long shot it Gaming, but if I need to wait a bit to get a 6 core 8700k, I'll do that.

I'm having a hard time finding comparison that use 7700k or 6700k and a 1080 or 1080ti card.
I found some that pin it against other intel 6 core chips, or reviews that use older / less powerful cards.
