    How much is the Intel upgrade of it going to cost?
    There isn't one.
    Ah, you want to count going to 8c as an upgrade. Ok, cool. That'll be £485 for the 9900K or £550+(?) for the 9900KS (that probably won't ever gon sale in meaningful numbers).
    What exactly is your argument here?
    Its funny because you could buy a 2600 with 3 AAA games for £139 recently.

    I think pretty much all of us will spend more between console generations than the cost of a next gen console. Regardless of which console gen you look at. Add up all the GPU and CPU and mobo and RAM upgrades since PS4 was released, I dare ya ;) Esp if you bought an nVidia GPU recently (ho ho ho).

    PC upgrades aren't cheap; they don't really make economical sense vs consoles from a gaming perspective.

    The reason to keep upgrading your PC is to have either a) one "all purpose" device; b) upgrade more frequently (if you have an uncontrollable itch); c) maximum power for unlimited spend or d) you're addicted to MMOs :p

    For everyone else - and because everyone else already has a PC of some sort - consoles genuinely are the better value for money proposition (except if you don't play games!).

    And what would £200 spent with Intel net you?

    At the risk of looking silly its a LOT of comments, I read it as the power efficiency comes from something, thus the reduction to 7nm being the obvious answer. If I have missed something else I apologise :)

    Beating the CPU into submission with that cooling haha. I lost the silicon lottery with mine sadly, even 280mm for CPU couldn't keep my sucker cooled happily, even after slapping Noctua IPPC fans on there at silly noise. Then again, it lasted nearly 5 years. Time to retire this bugger.

    If RAM prices would just give us a break, I can let go of it my Xeon 2650 lab box :eek:

    Without getting into the nuances of who has what system now and who is prepared to swallow the most depreciation possible whilst branding it the 'easy shuffle', for someone with no PC system (or a very old one) buying a system now, the CPU choice is clear.

    AMD.

    To be fair it did read an awful lot like you were planning to flip your 2700X and it did read an awful lot like you then said that you were going to do no such thing :D.

    Yes that would be nice, on top of just the neatness of plugging C: drive into motherboard.

    A t-shirt that says "no-one ever got fired for buying Intel."
    It'd have holes in it, and they'd have to be sewn up every few months to make it wearable, though on the downside all of the sewing would result in shrinkage such that it wasn't fit for purpose anymore...unless you had a little brother that you liked giving hand-me-downs to.

    They're all 7nm products so it has no bearing :p

    The easy shuffle only works when you sell old gen while it still has worth..

    Buy a 2700x for £329 sell it for £300 and buy a 3700x ....

    It’s all about the timing.
