    Wait for Ryzen 3000 series peeps, and then if it's not as good (may not be in pure single core performance but should be close), get the i7/i9. Reviews are like 2 and a half weeks away.

      I'm with you, very interested to see how the new Ryzen's perform.

      What fun is that?

      Buy now, regret later.

        I sincerely apologise for making such statements, you are absolutely right, please don't court martial me or take my OzB badge away.

    Was gonna buy this but mate said wait because AMD might have cheaper options in a few weeks. Just a word of warning if anyone else doesn't need something in a hurry

  •  

    use PLUSWKND coupon code on Saturday for a better price. Better not to buy yet anyway since it's only like a half month till Ryzen 3000 comes, and the Intel CPU's will drop in price in response.

    but still represents great value for money

    Not convinced that this can be said with Zen 2 imminent

      AMD is yet to surpass Intel for gaming due to single core IPC performance. While AMD are currently favoured for multi-core performance per dollar, Intel is still leading with gaming performance - especially in regards to high frame rate competitive environments at 1080p, where the limiting bottleneck becomes the CPU at FPS above 150/200+.

      Tldr great value for money
      , although depending on application may not seem as appealing against higher cored AMD CPUs at same/lower price.

        Since I play at 1440p 144hz or 4k 60hz, I should wait for Ryzen then?

        Definitely going to wait for benchmarks of the whole range regardless.

          Single core performance becomes the same with the current second generation Ryzen. At 1080p Intel show some advantage.

          •  

            @Major Mess: Never take manufacturers claimed/advertised performance numbers as the be all end all. Intel did the same thing with the 9000 launch showing massive gains over AMD - but then it later came out that the "independent" firm Microsoft hand picked had underclocked the AMD systems ram which is a huge weakness when compared against Intel. There was stories everywhere about this, have a Google or YouTube if you're unaware.

          No one can really answer that without seeing the real numbers. Definitely wait before making a decision.

      •  

        i agree with you mate.
        they barely catch up,

        will be good when they do catch up, but that's still an if

        AMD vs Intel 1080P benchmarks.

        Not showing Intel ahead @ 1080P

          so its pretty much neck and neck, but anything with multi core will be a win for Ryzen?

        •  

          Remember Intel's "benchmarks" they showed before the i9 9900K was released? They weren't even close to accurate.

          Let's wait for actual benchmarks from a third party before we believe these numbers.

          That said, I wouldn't be buying an i7 9700K now, it's definitely worth waiting a few weeks for unbiased reviews.

      •  

        Wrong or unconfirmed on all counts, and what's more Intel are about to drop prices. Terrible time to buy, and at a terrible price no less.

        You should probably wait for more benchmarks, including ones that factor in all the mitigations Intel chips now have to suffer through (because AMD didn't turn them on for their benchmarking).

    vs 9900K Intel loses some, wins some.

    •  

      Manufacturer-provided benchmarks are never accurate.

    This CPU is currently selling for $599 as standard price - how is this a bargain?

    • -2 votes

      $11, I suppose makes it a bargain. At that price I imagine most sellers would be prepared to match if you could be bothered.

    This is in no way a good deal and the OP is being a little misleading.

    This is practically a 1% discount over RRP and saying "represents great value for money" stinks of being misleading. It is not value, nor a great deal, nor a great time to buy. The OP's follow up comments to various posters about single core/ IPC / 1080P gaming just stinks of Intel shilling.
