I would consider the 8-core i7-7820X if it had full access to all of the platforms PCIe lanes. Forcing consumers to pay at least $989 for 44 PCIe lanes is terrible customer service and a quick way to stop people from "upgrading" their Z270 chipset.
It looks like competition from AMD may showing itself from Intel. Hopefully they will price there new chips to compete with Ryzen so that we can move past the 4-core standard that the market has been stuck at.
This is good news as I couldn't find any Titan X pascal cards on their site. I have an EVGA 1080 ti that uses the Titan's block rather than the FE block. The added DVI riser takes up space on the board otherwise it's identical to the FE.
