Found 5th Jan
Just saw the new Kaby Lake processors pop up. Can't find them in stock nor cheaper anywhere in the UK currently.

Consider the 6700k kept RRP £300+ for all this time, it seems like a no brainer to go for a 7700k if you are looking to build a 1151 system.

Could be coming soon with ryzen.

They'll do well to compete with an i5, never mind an i7.

Hyped up and dissapoints again, with just the price rising it seems.

To be fair (aside from the initial retailers early adoption surcharge), the price rise has more to do with USD vs UKP.

Oooh 25% increase in 5 years. That shows that either Sandybridge was amazing or that AMD have been so bad that Intel has no need to innovate. My money is somewhere in the middle.
Looks like I can keep the 2500k a wee while longer.

Im waiting to upgrade i was waiting for the Kaby Lake i7 but at that price im not paying it no way no how if benchmarks are to be belived its going to get slaughtered by Ryzen. The $400 Ryzen can beat intels £1000 monster Its disgusting intel are really cashing in, my 4690k was around £170 the replacement is £60+ more money. Lets see how quick they drop when/if they finally have competition from AMD, in the past AMD sold chips that were cheaper and faster and really overclocked. If the Ryzen chip doesnt come at a decent price compared to intel and performance to match im sticking with my Haswell i5, its still a fast chip running as 4.2ghz since launch with no issues im not wasting £700-£800 for a complete new build for very little benefit.

Sure, the more threads the merrier but like I said the press has been easy on Intel and I couldn't find the i7 generational comparison (at the same clock).

Apparently if you clock the two at the same clock speed, the benchmarks are apparently the same, though I appreciate the 7700K has a few new features that will be appealing to some, while we are told the 7700K will need a very high quality cooler to hit the higher overclocks that it can apparently hit, money that could be put toward a better graphics card, surely. I don't want to knock Intel too much because the new motherboards have some worthwhile features, albeit hardware prices at the moment make for glum reading if you work in retail/the industry. Hopefully AMD's new offerings, when they finally become available, will offer some much needed competition on price.

I am guessing a lot of people will hold out for price drops, by which time perhaps AMD's new offering will have been fully reviewed and be in the shops

​I agree..sandy bridge is still a capable CPU for most and so my 2600k will soldier on a little longer. To the op: ebuyer and box.co.uk also sell the CPU but at a slightly higher price.

Ryzen doesn't even have to match this CPU, as long as it's competitive at a cheaper price it will be the way forward. Personally I will be happy if ryzen matches an i5 6600k in single thread performance but has the benefit of 8 cores 16 threads. All for the same price as a 6600k I would be over the moon. Cmon AMD because these Intel dominant prices are getting stupid.

Pretty meh tbh, makes me soo happy though that the performance of my i7 4790k is almost on par with this 7700k, love it when old tech is still almost top of the range 3 years later (_;)

If Ryzen hits even close to that IPC it would be amazing.
