@HenrySomeone once 10th gen sells out I doubt used pricing will be all that good I sold a 6700K ($190)/8700k ($220)/9900k ($360) recently and to me that really isn't cheap considering you can get current gen chips for similar $$$ that are better for only a little more and in the case of the 9900k a 10850k for less. Although in this current whacky market I sold a 2600X for $180 and a 3600X for $225 used..... Not sure why people are panic buying on ebay nothing is overly hard to get other than Zen 3 and I mostly think that is due to scalpers being able to make a decent profit on 3 out of the 4 chips that now even Microcenter is getting in on the action.
Other than people who really need a cpu bad everyone who loves them some team blue should be waiting for Alderlake which will probably offer 80% more MT performance and better ST vs rocketlake while being on a much more future proof platform..... I buy whatever I find interesting so if it's actually decent I may pick it up assuming DDR5 isn't too stupidly priced at launch. Maybe we will get a chip that actually deserves to be called an i9 again.
Intel is still making 10th gen though. They've even released some new SKUs on 10th gen in Q1 2021. I think 10th gen will continue to be made in volume alongside 11th gen until Q4 at a minimum, and maybe longer. Keep in mind that there is nothing yet to replace Intel's HEDT 109XX HEDT CPUs, and I doubt there will be until AL.
The next big things we're likely to see from Intel and AMD will probably be in the laptop space. We've seen leaks but not much in terms of real products with Zen 3 laptop parts and Tiger Lake H45 yet.
Meanwhile this cpu isn't much more than the 3600 yet it goes head to head with the 5600X.
Intel Core i7-10700F $266.30
I have one big reservation on Gen 10, and saying that as someone who just picked up a 10850K.
I strongly suspect that single thread performance will become much more important in the future. Just the opposite of what the crowd tends to say. Simple reason - it's easier to develop for it, and it's advancing rapidly again. If we really do get another 20% IPC gain with AL and Zen 4, CML / Zen 2 and so on may look pretty weak on a lot of real applications in a couple years.
