hi, as you have money to waste , could you please send me some

thanks in advance

If you purely game just get the 9700k simply because there is no performance gains when tested side by side.

With the new Ryzens out soon this doesn't make much sense unfortunately. Still a great CPU tho, but with 16 core, 32 thread Zen 2 at the same price or less apparently. Gonna wait.
isnt this the cpu that was beaten by the budget version of the new Zen2 chip?

Bargain......

True but you get lower CPU usage with the 9900k and with games that utilize multithreading. Worth bearing in mind if multitasking.

But you are buying an inferior Intel CPU

Just a few hours ago new exploits were disclosed.

So Intel is now vulnerable:
Speculative Execution attack (Spectre/NG/RSB, Meltdown, SPOILER)
L1TF SE attacks (Foreshadow/NG)
MDS SE attacks (ZombieAttack, Fallout, RIDL)

Patches if you wish to install them are to disable hyper threading + a microcode patch later

well the info hes going off is the CES 2019 Cinebench: ES Zen2 8 core @ ?.??Ghz vs I9 9900k @ stock. AMD beat it.

Thing is AMD always do better in Cinebench, however personally with all the security issues at intel and the 10nm problems AMD is worth waiting for, not to mention how hot intel cpus are now and price gouged.

Honestly there's no point.

Fanboys have been around as long as I can remember. You're wasting your words.
Ryzen suck at core grunt... games like total war just die on AMD cpus. Let's hope their next cpu can do better but yeah AMD the way they are going will crush Intel in the end... Intel have just stagnated for years now theres been little performance jumps for years so people havent even bought new cpus for 5-6 years.

I'm waiting for the 3080ti and then I'll pick my cpu, never had an amd cpu in my life but will if its gonna be good
This is a really good deal for the top of the line I tel processor. For gaming, the better “bang for buck” ratio lies with the i7-9700k. However, for my recent build, I went with the i7-9700k CPU only because the i9-9900k was over £100 more. The price difference between the two (with this deal) is only around £35-£40, so I would definitely recommend it. Can’t hurt to go top of the line when the difference is more than half of what it is usually. Great deal, heat.

Anyone seen any 9700k deals? I'm firmly in the market!
Intel annoys me with how disgustingly overpriced their CPUs are!
theregister.co.uk/201…ty/

FYI

"Intel disagrees about the need to disable hyperthreading, and says it plans to add additional hardware defenses to address these vulnerabilities into future processors"


maybe skip this and the next gen intel CPU`s?
Edited by: "ws007" 15th May
At this point I would wait and see what Zen 2 offers unless you already have a compatible LGA 1151 MB and are looking to upgrade.
Don't buy this. New 'Zombieload' vulnerabilities mean hyperthreading has to be disabled on Intel CPUs. You may aswell have a 9700K in which case. Or you're probably better off getting one of the new Zen2 processors launching next month. Might even be better overall performance and almost definitely better price.
"Intel’s benchmarks suggest only a marginal decrease in within some tasks while Zombieload mitigations are in place.
Within the company’s in-house testing, a Core i9 9900K with HyperThreading enabled drops 3% performance in WebXPRT 3 testing. At best, it gained 1% within SPECint_rate_base 2017 (1 copy) testing.

However, with HyperThreading disabled, that same chip suffered a 9% drop in SPECint_rate_base 2017 (n copy) testing, and 7% in SYSmark 2014 SE."

Do you think you could make and sell one cheaper?

Hold my beer...
Ryzen is much better

I'm always disappointed that whatever new processor comes out, it's not even twice as fast as my 10 year old one.
