Hot hot hot just because I support the product, but the price is generally the same everywhere unfortunately.

yup 99p more at Ebuyer, same at Scan

Will go cold but good price

The reason this is being voted cold is because it is not a good deal: it costs much the same price everywhere (I didn't vote either way).

Ryzen having a tough time in general at the moment. I think most waiting for more info/benchmarks. I'm genuinely looking forward seeing more. I love my i5, but It is lagging behind when creating music or editing in general, so I'm upgrading this year depending on what comes to light.

There's a lot of hype behind the Ryzen series and I think most are hesitant at this point, going on previous launches. Prices are hopping all over the place on a few of the chips, we shall soon see

Priced out once again its getting so exspensive these days to buy pc parts

This is the top of the line, there are cheaper options in the range.

Try Vtech or Fisher-Price they seem quite cheap and for whole systems too.

Don't dismiss Chad Valley either. Cheap-seats tech for sure, but fair value for money.

Early adopters always pay a premium, but people voting cold because it isnt cheap, pleas remember this..

The INTEL i7 cpu this is targeted at costs about £1500.

I'm interested, will it play minecraft?

Voting cold as it's not a deal, just another pre-order within a pound of other vendors.

Maybe. I have seen Doom running on a calculator (TI83) so within the realm of possibility

I mean, no. Intel's Enthusiast desktop market is based around the 4 core 8 thread 7600k and 7700k lines which cost less than the 1800x. Just because AMD have always used octa core and attempted to shoehorn them into comparisons with Intel doesn't make this a direct consumer competitor.

90% of consumers won't care if they have 4 6 or 8 threads, as long as the threads they do have are fast single threaded.

Most modern games don't benefit much from additional cores past 4, which may change, but it isn't the case yet.

Wait for benches, because right now, AMD is just convincing people to pay nearly 500 for an octo core CPU, when they likely won't benefit much.

Maybe now more people can afford more cores/threads the future will look more parallel to developers, especially now VR, dx12 (and photorealism?) are actual things.

If we all just sat and waited all the time nothing would change. Maybe you would consider doing other interestnig things with your PC with more processing power? Games are only one aspect of what you can do with more cores.

This is like the Polaris release all over again. Everybody was hyped and then AMD released at a much higher price than what people were expecting and still didn't compete with Nvidia's previous generation. (They're only finally now starting to appear at a price they should have been released at)

This is exactly the price were expecting for the 8c/16t models, the 6c/12t and 4c/8t and 4c/4t will be cheaper with the lowest model R3 1300 coming in at about £125, but should be on par with the current £180+ i5's from Intel.

The r 7 1800x is the top end chip equal and in many cases faster than the i7 6900k which costs twice as much ..

I do agree that consumers do not care whats in their machine as long as their system can do what they want and at a certain price. But amd has not released the cheaper parts yet .

As for additional cores, games are becoming more and more multithreaded partly[mostly] due to the mutli core consoles.

If you stream your games, u need spare cores/threads etc etc. Windows itself needs spare cores whilst you are gaming. This is why the "oh games use only 4cores max so i don't need anymore than that" is pure sillyness ...

so basically 90% of what you said makes no sense ..

i vote cold on any rrp deal thats either raising awareness, or just advertising a product. if its rrp, its not a deal.

i can vouch for this as i stream using OBS with a AM3 AMD 8120 (32nm Cpu) with 2x GTX 970's @ 1500mhz and 1080p 60FPS Res. my games only use 2-4 cores MAX and ALL CPUS NEVER go above 58-65% max load even when using x264 as the streaming preset. OBS is assigned 3 cores and 1core is spare.

Then why not vote at all. Cold indicates you can get this for a better price elsewhere.

OS and background programs seem to use the first and last core by preference, so with a 6 core cpu, this would be core0 and core5; leaving cores1-4 free for gaming IF you set the game affinity to use those cores.

If you have an 8 core cpu, obviously you have 6 cores free to play with.

Unlike many everyday programs, most modern games benefit from multi-cores, believe me, I know; I play LOTRO, which is so ancient, it stubbornly refuses to use more than 1.5 cores.

See above answers to a very fanboy-esque comment.

I for one have had Intel CPUs for a while now, currently with an i5 4670k @ 4.3ghz, but I cannot wait for these CPUs to come out! It will be great to have AMD back in the gamer/enthusiast market properly because these processors look like they will perform awesomely and also it will push Intel's prices down which is only good for us consumers.

Good work AMD, bring it on!

I completely understand this isn't their only CPU they are releasing.

But why the cherry picked comparison?

Pick whatever CPU you want, but compare it to the 7700k.

Why? Surely you pick the CPU that performs very closely to the 7700k and use that as a comparison??

You don't compare an F1 car with a Touring Car, you put F1 vs F1 because they are in the same performance category. Comparing an 1800x to a 7700k is even remotely useful or relevant.

Except the 7700k will very likely outperform the 1800x in 'gaming' and pretty much every single threaded application.

It is absolutely useful and relevant as the 1800x is not in the same 'price bracket' as you would say. Comparing a $1000 cpu to a $500 CPU and saying you shouldn't compare the $350 is silly.

We'll see it, when reviews come out. The 7700k will very likely destroy it.

All reviews are overwhelmingly positive. A few caveats but nothing a little bios trickery won't sort out.

Just got my 1800x ordered today.
And a new motherboard, 32gb ddr4, mounting adaptor for my liquid cooling solution, oh and a 3rd gen NVMe for system and software.

I'm also not planning on eating for the rest of this month.
