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.
