TBH if you insist on Intel I don't see why you don't buy a 9900K instead.
The performance is nearly identical to the 10700k and you can get it on sale for just $320.
Of course for single threaded performance the 5600X will blow away both at $299 price point as well.
As far as Intel favored...
I mean it’s really impressive that you can overclock the hell out of this 6800xt card and beat a stock 3090. Realistically the scalperbots will gobble this up and you’ll see it on eBay going for $1500. 😂
My 5900X from B&H will be arriving Monday! I guess it just depends on how early you got into the queue.
In other news I've seen a LOT of stock alerts for the 5800x while I was waiting for that confirmation from B&H so there should be plenty of those available.
Ryzen 9's might be a little...
Newegg dropped the EVGA FTW 3090 today. I flirted with it in the cart but said naaah my budget cannot go that far!
Knowing my luck the order would not have completed anyways. LOL.
Also Best Buy dropped a bunch of 3080s today. With AMD's scarcity of 6000 series cards people are just buying...
Umm you're going to end up past the usual 30 day return date on the 3090. I think 6900XT doesn't launch till Dec 8th IF you are lucky enough to snag one on launch day. Why not just enjoy the 3090 since it's already in hand?
