Too little too late. I'd give it to Intel that their 14nm process has proven to be golden, but they need to make their cpu's run at extremely high out of the box frequencies, which increases power consumption massively, interestingly heat doesn't appear to be that bad, but some reviewers have found higher temps using heat measurement tools, rather than software monitoring apps, so qurious to see if Intel are cheating somehow and reporting lower temps on purpose!
Anyways these cpu's require yet another new motherboard, require you to purchase a cooler, are way too expensive for what they offer and where their competition is at. Intel is pricing these as if we are 6-7 years back in time where they had no competition, reality is AMD is ahead in almost every metric, offer more value, have a longer and cheaper chipset, have more upgradibility and are more future proof with more cores for less money!
I think if Intel reduces prices on these new cpu's by about 20% on average they can be competitive once again, but as it is with very expensive Z490 motherboards, with cooler costs, with the high msrp its an expensive choice to own Intel.
Considering next gen consoles use Zen 2 architecture and 8 cores, I expect literally ALL next gen games to perform better on Zen 2 and future Zen processors.
