I was hoping the 8c/16t was going to be more like $450ish, but the flagship cpu rumor is $600-750 from what I see. A bit rich for my blood; given nothing I use needs that much thread/power. I mainly game(CSGO, Overwatch, etc..) and tbh nothing I use pushes what I have(firstname.lastname@example.org), but when has that ever stopped us from switching up parts . I wouldn't mind being back in the AMD camp again; having fond memories of the old slot A, socket A athlons. I'm thinking I may back off to a 6c/12t higher clocked cpu provided when they come out Ryzen doesn't suck, and has similar IPC to intel with some oc headroom(4.4ghz+ I'm hoping). I'd expect these to be priced against current 7700k cpu's or a bit less???? just wanted to see what people were thinking. I'd love the 8c/16t just to say I had it, but can't see spending nearly double on it. Maybe the lower clocked 8c/16t parts oc nearly as well and we'll have some gems like the old Celeron 300A, P4 2.4C, etc... and get some crazy value there, but not really banking on that. I also may wait a few weeks to month or so to see how the early adopters are fairing as I can't have an unstable setup in league csgo matches. Maybe let some of the markup dust settle as I'm sure retailers are going to be pretty proud of AMD's new toys. Thoughts?
