Now that is competition....though it just shows you how badly Intel were stealing from people...that alone made me go AMD this time....sick of supporting Intel so they can just gouge us...

Well be thankful for people buying AMD, because if they were not around you would likely still be paying top dollar for quad core cheap to build cpus. Getting fleeced by Chipzilla and their x86 monopoly with new motherboards every gen to increase revenue, even after over charging you because they can.

Then again maybe there are people who like being bent over and getting Intel inside....


Voted hot, its a great price.

ignore the intel fanboys spreading FUD and lies. 3700x on a 4xx board, and put the extra savings on a better gpu, more memory or whatever you actually need.

Finally starting to come down

Finally starting to come down


So you think it will fall below £400?.
I’m not sure. This price might be enough to get people to justify for themselves to pay for it over the AMD offerings. It certainly briefly made me question my 3700x order I made earlier today when I saw this. Albeit for about 3 seconds
Fab price, I remember having a couple of these in a setup last year and the "shops" trying to flog them to me for £899 a pop! Think they came down to about £700 before they started moving sales, paid £410 each, so this is a stellar price

How much?
It’s hard to know if this is a good price or I’ve been conditioned to think it is because it’s a decent reduction

hot deal. It is still the best gaming chip

it’s great to finally have some competition.
AMD doing a lot of damage
Still overpriced

If Intel are clever it will. Dangerous time for them.
hot if you are already on the platform

otherwise motherboard costs still don't justify it vs ryzen 3700/900 and a decent motherboard

get this, firstly it sounds cooler, and secondly, the new AMD chips haven't exactly been flawless in terms of functionality. Plus, the only motherboards worth getting when you're buying one of the new high end ryzens are quite much in terms of price
z390 much cheaper boards and they dont need a fan to cool the boards down lol

great price still too rich for my blood, I'd still love a 8086k @ 5.3ghz with 4k + ram to match
Get an Intel, get any motherboard, get any RAM, it works flawlessly.

Get an AMD, wait for several new Bios, hope the mainboard you took works, have enough space to flash the bios, hope the RAM you purchased works, trick this, trick that, waste time, check this, check that.
Nice price, I see those denied price cuts are finally starting to come through.

Yeap, plus Intel have lost a lot of trust as far as i am concerned, once my old but I7 4770 core gives up the ghost, my next CPU will be a AMD, that is now written in stone, intel need learn they simply cannot treat consumers like something they are scraping off the bottom of their shoe. lol

I think your totally wrong there the ryzen has a much better board than intel as they have newer tech. and there the same price when you work out the CPU & Motherboard combo.

I would Prob go ryzen

Intel i9-9900K (8C/16T, 16MB) + Aorus Z390 AORUS ULTRA (PCI GEN 3 , 12+1 Phase, 802.11ac Wireless) = £632.98
3700X (8C/16T, 36MB) + Aorus X570 AORUS ULTRA (PCI GEN4, 12+2 Phase, WiFi 6 802.11ax )= £633.50

Also if you wanted to save money you could go X470 which is the same as the intel board spec

3700X (8C/16T, 36MB) + Aorus X470 AORUS GAMING 5 WIFI = £515

and you prob don't need to change your motherboard every time a new CPU come out with AMD, unlike intel

It just shows you how badly Intel were stealing from people.


If an Intel chip reduced by less than 20% means they were stealing what does that say about all the Ryzen 2000 series chips that have been reduced by up to 50%?
I'm all for price reductions so your attitude is plain weird.
Let's not forget Swiss cheese approach to security intel has had in recent years. I do not trust their hardware anymore, and will wait for something that isn't skylake based to see if these issues are properly addressed

Overall Ryzen is the way to go for me but platform stability at release has been an issue for many and still is.
Unless you are talking about Ryzen from the 22nd century when they finally get their stuff together!
This is going to become hot hot hot
I'm done supporting Intel too

I'm not sure which issues you're referring to?
Dam, i was going to get a 3700x, but they are having issue with B450 mobo bios and X570 is way too expensive and have higher power and fan. At £404 9900K is much better deal than 3900X from AMD, especially in terms of gaming. but Intel security have exploit and stuff. decision, descision.
Actually competitive on price versus a 3800x. If the choice were between them you really have to go Intel for the performance win, with a nod of thanks to AMD for cutting £100 off this processor.
Is the Amazon price likely to go back up to the c. £450 it was yesterday? Or will it likely stay at £405 for a bit?

That's what I was thinking so put an order in to be delivered next Friday just in case. If it goes lower in the next few days I can then re order.

That hasn't been the case since FX...anything for a soundbite eh. I bet you call them space heaters too...except it is now Intel who are pumping out the heat...To say Intel is flawless.....is just laughable.

The updated Bios has sorted that. Asus also released a list of B450 and X470 boards that actually support PCIe 4.0 natively...so X570 really isn't necessary. The difference between 3900x and 9900k are not relevant because the FPS that the 9900k gains is actually undetectable by the human eye.....the 3900 though wins clearly in most other areas so, I would get something that preforms better over every other measure rather than one that only wins in something to a degree I will, litteraly, never be able to see.
There is no argument that this is an great CPU and an amazing price for it (even though it seems they could have cost that all along lol) There isn't a person who would ever notice whether the 9900k or 3900x was faster in gaming because the slight win by the Intel chip is NOT descernable to the human eye......the 3900x though is a significantly better CPU in most other areas and would give an overall better value performance. Surely it is better to win overall than to win one single measure that you will quite literally NEVER see...

It means nothing and it is a crazy thing to say...Comparing the reduction of a current chip with the reduction of an end of line model isn't a real comparison... That's like saying a 2018 car shouldn't ever be cheaper than a 2019 model....that's how commerce works.

AMD have been significantly reducing the price of Ryzen chips while they were still current generation. They have been doing it a lot more than Intel does. It's a good thing as far as I see it.
It is a good thing, I completely agree with you. Intel also dropped the price of this chip from the original price but this isn't just a drop, this is almost a capitulation..... Ryzen didn't really drop that much to begin with, what dropped was the retailers asking price due to demand....Like the way many online retail companies have pushed up the Ryzen 3's because of demand/supply...yet AMD have charged them the same the whole time. I'm an Intel fan btw, so it's not a fanboy thing... What is apparent though is the fact that the price drop on the 2000's has caused AMD an issue because they are really now only competing with themselves..lol. I saw a Ryzen 2700X for £149 yesterday...and that's with a cooler...which you still need to buy with this 9900K (about 60-100 to cool a chip of this level...which always bothers me when people compare RRP but 'forget' to mention it's inoperable without another £70 on top hahaha)
