    No thanks, just knowing that they sat there making huge margins and having us pay through the nose for CPU's because they had no competition would put me off big time. Yeah it will be great for us if Intel do drop prices but for me if they do start dropping prices it will show me their company ethics... rip people off whilst they can...

    AMD are getting my money regardless....for once some mighty decent tech that's not priced to take the urine.

    Intel can do one if they drop their prices....they have been fleecing us for years....

    In fact I'm thinking if a whole new overhaul

    New Ryzen rig, sell my x34 and go vega...

    The cynical in me would say 8pack is simply to trying to sell his pre overclocked high end intel machines on behalf of his employer - which they might have a stack on 7700k cpu`s available for....

    I'm actually gutted that there's only one NIC on the msi titanium board. I thought at that price there would be two. Its looking like I might have to grab that Aorus gaming something or other instead :(

    I'm waiting for full reviews and benchmarks before spending anything though. If that 1700 over clocks well then there's no point in me going for anything higher up the stack. Roll on the 2nd!

    Gibbo doesn't look like he cares, he's revelling in this launch, just like everyone not vested in Intel is.

    Well he'd presold over 500 CPUs this morning. I suspect he may well have sold substantially more by now...

    This actually surprises me. An extra $100/£100 for 200 MHz and it sells more than the 1700X? I guess people really don't overclock any more.
