Save 10% on the price

Seems other coffee lake processors have 10% off with the price too

Still only the z370 boards available.
Good if you plan to upgrade in the future,bad for budget builds.
Where do you add the code?
I see it and the box only shows up if you add a CPU that is eligible which isn't the case for the i5-8400 which is why I didn't see it.

You can find the Z370 boards for around £85 though which seems pretty reasonable.

New, cheaper boards are set to be released in a couple of weeks I think. Still hot.

Nice cpu, credit to AMD

This is an Intel CPU.
The budget boards were supposed to come in April but have already leaked onto the market in Asia with some retail sites listing them up. Certainly I would wait to see what the prices are like in a month, as the Ryzen refresh parts and chipsets launch at around the same time

Yes, that’s why I said credit to AMD
I'm just Googling a build as my Athlon X2 is creaking under stress but I noticed this deal (found from a HUKD link). It's a Grade A Desktop i5-3570 3.4GHz 1TB Windows 10 which isn't much slower than this? I have an SSD in my current build that I could put in that deal (assuming there is a spare bay). It knocks socks off my current build but is behind against this CPU.

I don't game much, just play a little online poker and a little programming.

I don't mind building from scratch, that's how I built my last PC but I'm clueless when it comes to spec.

Any thoughts?

Not sure how AMD gets any credit for this quality CPU?

I know some think that Intel had no plans on upping the core count on their CPUs, but that's a myth. There were no 2 core CPUs at all planned for Coffee lake before the original Ryzen release.

But a competitive market is good for the consumer.

If you look back to 5 years ago, intel’s new CPU is average 10% faster than the previous generation. In addition, the difference between i3 and i7 is huge. Also Generation gap is more than a year. If you look at the 8th Gen CPU, low voltage CPU is the same passmark as the previous gen of standard voltage. i3 has the most features of i7. We all believe this is from the competitor AMD. There is no reason why intel publish this huge upgrade without AMD.

I don't agree. This was a fairly obvious evolution for Intel as well, as you just alluded to, Intel was slowing down in each new generational upgrade.

Anyone paying attention realized that people were NOT upgrading their i5 2500k.

The best way to get them to jump on board? Offer more cores at the same price.

The 8th Gen is still basically 5% faster than the previous gen on single core performance, and many games show the same benefit. Intel was going to up the core count at some point, they chose this point.

This is Intel's doing, somehow giving credit to AMD, to me, is crazy. AMD had been failing CPUs so badly, while Intel were still (again according to you) incrementally improving their own process.

So, no, zero credit to AMD for their near 8 years of CPU failures, I am very happy Intel didn't fail like AMD had been doing as we would be in a CPU dark age if it wasn't for Intel.

AMD finally got their head out of the dirt and now have a good product to compete, lower prices for all, great! Competition is healthy.
So AMD release such a poor range of CPUs for a decade that Intel get complacent and now they release one decent CPU and they are our saviours! You're 'avin a laugh mate.

It’s not only the core but also the cache and turbo. Believe me, intel will sell this i3 as i7 without AMD

I don't 'believe you' when you make this unfounded statement that is patently false.

Intel's i3 CPUs are pretty clearly delineated from their i5 and i7s. They weren't selling their 'i3s as i7s' when AMD was providing utter garbage CPUs.
