    Yeah, I was also under the impression the 8700K's could do 5 gig without special treatment. But...
    All the ones I have seen previewed ranged from 4.9-5+ GHz

    I would like an 8700K but I'm waiting for Ryzen Gen 2.

    LOL!

    It takes time to manufacture these chips, get orders, ship them and put them on the shelves. Just because the papers and specs has been released, does not mean that Intel has already produced millions of these CPUs, ready to be delivered. That would be bad business.

    Small batches which will be adjusted with demand is the way to go. That is how all chip and hardware makers does it.
    . IMHO that's nothing but a survey to see how many morons will pay over $700USD more than what I paid for my I7 6700K for a CPU that can't perform any better in gaming (where it counts for me and many).

    Or since it's advertised in bin clocks (on a CPU that does 5.0 anyway) maybe it's a marketing survey to see what some might pay for an 8K Time Spy CPU score.

    Over $1,000 US for that CPU? No thanks.

    Yeah, from some of the reviews I read they all indicate 5gig. I'm sure not everyone can reach that, but even 4.9 isn't bad for a "stock" 8700K. I'm in no way paying an extra 500 to 700 bucks for a "guaranteed" extra 100MHz (aka 5gig). That's me.

    Actually, it's the benchmarks that count. Gaming is just secondary. And those "morons" understand that better than you think

    That said, even most of them (in your words, "morons"), aren't paying those prices.

    So thanks to AMD scaring Intel a bit we finally have Intel 6+ multi core CPU options (hopefully at a reasonable price).

    There must have been a high level Intel meeting with the topic header "we have competition now. How do we handle that and the release of our new CPU's?

    I think the answer was: Hire more marketing people.

    Yeah because we don't have a multitude of benchmarking threads in this forum.... and all over the net. It must be that illusive illusion I'm seeing. Oh, and lets not forget those morons aren't aware these chips aren't any better for gaming than the last ones. After all, they're morons

    C'mon man

    I'm talking about the price of $1,050 USD. I've already said on this forum if I was building a new rig I would go for an I7 8700K, if it was at a reasonable price. What are you arguing about? If they "aren't paying those prices" they aren't morons.

    I have been thinking about building a mini-ITX rig around the 8700K and GTX 1080Ti. All water cooled of course, and because size matters to me. The smaller the better.

    In addition I would only need 2x NVMe drives, 4x SATA SSD and 32GB of Dual Channel RAM and the rig would fly for years to come ( at least if one compares to my current fossils ). The case I was thinking about would just fit all elements including the water cooling.

    What do you think?
