    coffee lakes looking like its going to be x370, so new mobo all change again. gotta get them monies from your customers.

    Its not complicated
    i7 6 core 12 threads for 300 to 350
    i5 6 core 6 threads 200 to 250

    Its all about the performance and people dont mind paying a premium with ingel.if they get better performance. if it can oc very well and with the leak speeds it can very well not only beat the 6 core but fight the 8 core as well.

    Guys you do some tough topics. Great shows in my eye's. Hope your subscib. base really grows as well as your show here on utube!!

    Make no mistake about it, the Coffee Lake lineup is being position to obsolete Ryzen and make it look like Bulldozer. And there's really nothing AMD can do about it either. Intel has the vastly superior technology.

    A $175 i5 8400 is going to beat a 1600X in EVERYTHING. A $155 4/8 i3 8300 is going to beat a 1800X in gaming…… Heck the $97 4/4 Pentium will probably beat a 1800X in gaming.

    If intel murders my z270 Chipset in less that 1 year, and a new chipset is required, I will move to AMD forever. If I have to switch boards to get 2 more cores, then I will absolutely move to AM4. This is the last straw with Intel.

    Lol at Intel moving to a new chipset and abandoning people on their z270 boards! This will definitely increase AMD sales and cause more people to go to team Red obviously. I want to see Intel succeed, but single threaded performance will not sell better than multi threaded performance because people don't just simply use PCs to game. Even non streamers are desiring that power to be able to do more due to what they see other PC users be able to do with their machines. A PC gamer may start as a gamer only, but in little time they will begin to venture into other things and desire a strong workstation.

    If the Coffee Lake 8700K leak at 4.7ghz single core on turbo is real that thing is going to do great things for CPU bottlenecked games.

    And it would likely manually overclock (although turbo is already technically overclocked) to 5GHZ relatively easy… and then the two extra physical cores is great for newer/upcoming games.

    But no points until real reviews and benchmarks come out. If it turns out to be real, you can thank Team Red, competition is important to fan innovation.

    Intel I bet is going to price it at the R7 prices to save face if they have a brain in there skull of they go any lower it will piss off the people who bought the i7 7700k

    I won't waste any more money on Intel if they do make Coffeelake incompatible with z270 chipset

    Kill the pentium series. Sell i3 for pentium prices and i5 for i3 prices and so on.

    My current rig:
    Amd Ryzen 1700
    Msi b350

    Prediction: coffee lake 6 core will have higher clocks/efficiency, beating out the ryzen 5 lineup, but for a slightly higher price. Just as I'm guessing i9 will beat threadripper, but will cost more.
