    Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Again: Now coming November 19th; Previews Coming After June 25th

    I have so many games I haven't beaten already. It's ridiculous. They could probably delay it to the beginning of next year, and I probably wouldn't care, honestly. I am excited about the game, though; I just know, realistically, it'll be another game that collects dust because I bought it on...

    AMD Offers Enthusiasts More Choice Than Ever Before with New Ryzen 3000XT Processors

    Yep, just more choices. Consumers can make up their mind whether they want this or not. Personally I'm not impressed. I lost interest when I read the price point and lack of coolers. These are definitely for somebody though.

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    Yep, I got a good run on this 4670k. I'm likely upgrading to 3700x and calling it day. Should be fine for another 3-4 years.

    Uhhh....Alrighty then. LOL.

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    Neither the H470 or B460 support ram over 3000mhz, nor ram overclocking. The B450, on the other-hand....Some models support up 4000mhz, plus OC. Like the $120 ASUS Tuf-Pro.

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    Lol. You seriously believe retailers are only going to only charge a $40 -50 premum between the 10700 and 10700k (2.90 ghz vs 3.80, not the the standard .5-.6 dif). Got you bud. To your other point, no duh the msrp for the 3700x is over $300. I never said it wasn't. I said price currently...

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    The MSRP for the 10700k is $75 more? Are you talking about the 10700 non-k? The current MSRP (non-inflation) for the K edition is $400. $135 more. The 3700x has been around $270-280 for months now , and it's unlikely to go anywhere near $300 again. Not to mention you'll likely spend $20-30 more...

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    True. Part of me is skeptical these pieces will ever retail for the suggested price. I imagine it'll always hover around $180-200 (even including heatsink) more than the 3700x. I digress though.

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    Wiping the floor with the 3700x? It's only between 8-9% faster than the 3700x at base clocks, yet costs nearly $200-250 more (before factoring in additional costs) in the wild . Of course it dominates in single-threaded productivity, no surprise there.

    Intel Core i7-10700K

    Good luck getting this thing at the suggested retail price. LOL. I've seen it almost $200-250 more than the 3700x. Atrocious price/performance. IMHO.

    Possible 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen "Matisse Refresh" XT SKU Clock Speeds Surface

    Very true. Should've thought of that.

    Intel Core i3-10300

    These price points make most of this line up almost moot, IMHO. I can only imagine what'll happen if supply issues arise. I guess I'm more impressed by the fact that Intel has managed to keep this platform somewhat relevant/competitive.

    Possible 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen "Matisse Refresh" XT SKU Clock Speeds Surface

    I guess they just wanted to piss on Intel's cornflakes. I'm hoping AMD lowers prices slightly when these updates release; but, looking at the performance vs dollar of these recent Intel releases, who am i kidding?

    Intel Core i5-10400F

    It's "noticeably" good for gaming...If you pair it with something equivalent to a 2080ti. Other than that, it loses to the similarly priced 3600 in most cpu related tests. Obviously. At least it comes with a cooler, I guess.
  15. H

    Intel Core i5-10600K

    I imagine most folks, with 2080ti money, are likely to pair it with a 10900k. There will be some, but it doesn't mesh with "bragging rights".

    Intel Core i5-10600K

    Disappointing product, IMHO; particularly when you factor in the additional costs. This just reminds me of what an incredible value the 3600 is.

    Intel Core i7-10700K Features 5.30 GHz Turbo Boost

    That wouldn't be surprising, considering the 3800x is essentially a 3700x with a higher TDP ( 65w vs 105=higher overclocking) and base clock. The difference between the two is a negligible (IMHO) 2-4%., when factoring in price...

    It's still enjoyable, I just don't have a point to prove thru purchases anymore (computer wise). LOL.

    Intel Core i9-10900 10-core CPU Pictured

    Reminds me of why I stopped participating in gaming/pc forums for the most part. I got dragged into that "brand-centric" lifestyle. Made me stop caring, particularly with how fast-paced this industry is. Performance vs $ is the name these days. Someone told me yesterday that my thought process...

    Intel Core i7-10700K Features 5.30 GHz Turbo Boost

    Lol. The top one percent. Gotcha. Like said I understand how this works. Most revenue comes from us peasants tho, that's why I mention pricing. More like m8 grand coupe vs a Bugatti, Imho (had to find the vehicle I was thinking of). Unless we're saying my setup is worth $50-100. Lol.

    Intel Core i7-10700K Features 5.30 GHz Turbo Boost

    Honestly, I'm not sure why anyone would buy a 9900ks or 3800x for Facebook browsing and basic (non $1000+ graphics card) gaming; but I digress. I understand how things work. Anyway, this news doesn't impress me, and I hope Intel prices these things accordingly.

    Core i9-10900K up to 30% Faster than i9-9900K: Intel

    I definitely agree. Hmm...My microcenter is charging $370. With the cooler, it'll likely be bumped to $400+. Must have been a holiday sale. The were selling the 3700x for like $280-290 at one point, too.

    Core i9-10900K up to 30% Faster than i9-9900K: Intel

    Are you saying the 9700k is a good buy in the upper price bracket? Over here it's $400 compared to the $329 3700x and the $200 3600, and that's before you factor in having to buy a cooler.

    Core i9-10900K up to 30% Faster than i9-9900K: Intel

    I stopped taking him seriously long ago. just Lol when he post...Anyway, I would hope it would be 25%-30% faster, since it possesses two more cores. I think I'll just get a 3700x to replace my 4670k and call it a day.

    Intel Marketing Claims i5-9600KF Better than 3800X, i3-9350KF Better than 3600X

    Just wow...This coupled with the re-release of 22nm products. Anyway...
