This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

These are slowly dropping, this is the cheapest UK retailed price.
Supposedly these overclock better than the 9900K. Only difference is lack of iGPU but who uses that anyways.

Use code "PARTY" for £100 off.

Meh. The 9900K was £7 less from them using the same code yesterday, before even getting into how this stacks up in value terms versus a 3700X (very poorly). And personally, I think the iGPU is very handy in a pinch, or for using Quick Sync. Intel selling you their failed silicon with less features for the same price is a wonderful scam.

Hopefully their prices will drop now
One of the few advantages that has been claimed for the 9 series over Ryzen has been its iGPU for some media work.
Still, its at the point you need to be a blind fanboy to buy intel, so little point trying to sway that final hardcore few!

if you have a desktop i9 9900k I'm assuming you would probably have a GPU to go with it
i9. OMG. I am still stuck at i7 and think it is the business. Dumb me.

If you game only , It's a good choice, it walks all over the Ryzen cpu's, I still went for a 3700x because I need it for compiles and data work

I have a 3700x on an ACE x570 from MSI, It barely beats my old 3570K in games, shame on reviewers for hiding the truth.
I'm glad I went Ryzen for the first time though, I have always bought intel because of the less hassle out of the box.

Now, intel lost a customer in me and the pressure will be good for all of us.

Back to the 3570K stuff, I am going to make a video showing the gaming performance difference between a 3570K and a Ryzen 3700x, the Ryzen won but by 1-3% on average, that's a 7 year old intel part, It was at stock!!!!
Worth upgrade from 7700k? This needs need mobo too

The X570 was also so unnecessary to be honest. Why did you get that board with a 3700!?

I very much doubt it, either you have a bottleneck or you don't know what you're doing...

If you're GPU bound no CPU upgrade is going to make much difference.

What is the first of your system and what resolution?

This is completely dependent on the game you play, my girlfriends 4790 gets similar FPS to my 8086k @ 5ghz in GPU bound games.

there's actually still a few of us left though we normally stay in hiding to avoid the Ryzenborg

Are you trying to play at 4K on a 10 series graphics card or something? If you get no difference in FPS with that CPU upgrade either you have an issue elsewhere in something like the memory or you are bottlenecking it with the GPU. If you were running games with no consideration for frame rates and just after it looking good you wouldn't really see much of a discernible difference as the CPU was at best well matched before.

Try cranking down the graphics settings and seeing what you get.

Most of the reviewers were very particular about the gaming performance. It's not as good as Intels top processors in games, but it's not lagging behind that far.
I bought a 9900k for 385 on ebay using a code about 6 months ago. I thought that was a great deal then as most were going for 450+. Gives me 5ghz on all cores stable. Most games I own run on a single core, so as long as AMD can get to 5ghz, it should be good for those games where not all cores are utilised. Unfortunately, I just game, and 9900k seems still to be king of the enthusiast market. They just need to drop their prices a lot.
