    Not surprised, likely ryzen sales have gone up, so the gouging starts, in addition we seen here gibbo's reaction to the intel chips been double the price of amd was to rectify it by upping the price of amd's parts. Instead of reducing the price of intel parts.

    The thing is tho, AMD were stupid enough to call it gaming mode, intel will just say its logical if they testing AMD, they will use the gaming mode for testing games. AMD opened themselves up to that.

    Gaming mode probably should have been labeled "low threaded optimised mode". As I expect it helps in single and dual threaded games.

    I do not understand the second chip.
    9900 8 thread 16 ht
    9700 8 thread

    Why is the second chip as stock actually slower than the first one?
    Surely with no HT, they could manage heat more effectively, and clock it significantly higher?

    And then there are the hardware fixes for Meltdown and L1TF.

    yep.
    Arriving:
    Thursday, October 11
    Dispatch Confirmation

    Need to decide if I'm going to keep it. If so, then get a Z390 board and some RAM or go with full 2700x

    I might just keep in boxed up until the 19th.

    I expect 9900k's have better binned cores.
    It also could be the cores are equally capable but the extra 100mhz is simply to differentiate the products, you dont want a cheaper product to be faster than the more expensive one.

    Usually intel non HTT chips have at least 200mhz difference, and the 8600k I think is 300 or 400mhz slower than the 8700k at stock, so the 9700k is actually very close to the 9900k vs historical levels.

    Is HTT that good you would rather have a 4 core 8 threaded chip instead? Just so you have magical HTT. :)

    The real comparison will be 6/12 vs 8/8, will be close probably with the 8/8 edging it.

    Just read on overclock.net someone from the UK had their i9-9900k pre-order cancelled on the well known US version of the rain forest site. Not even showing up in search on their website now and says unavailable on the link lol.

    How about having 8 core 16 HT. Same as all previous generations for the money, instead of trying to push the 9900K at it's stupid price.

    Prices are a joke. Intel trying to pretend the Ryzen 2700 and 2700X don't exist. The 9900K is not going to be much faster than the 2700X but costs £300 MORE!! Pure madness.

    Yeah they might of got away with it before Zen but not now, fact is Intel are supply constrained on all CPUs so they will sell what they ship but AMD will be selling many times more.

    What will Intel do...

    Admit incompetence
    Accuse the company they instructed of incompetence
    Say nothing because it was orchestrated to spike AMD sales and create a false impression anyway
