i would personally pick the i9 9900k as although more expensive i hear intel 9th gen can clock all the way up to 5.5ghz... i mostly just games so the intel is the clear winner in that area.

I mean you are comparing it wrong it should be the I7-8700k

Post your sources otherwise thats just bullshit. Most 8700k were 5-5.2 once delidded, i would say maybe a few golden samples get 5.5,

 

If you play games then 8700k would be the far better value choice as it is still $200 cheaper and the same performance within 2-3 fps, which is pretty much nothing when its 197 fps vs 200 fps

So your not using realistic instead just imaginary, Good to know your lack of effort or beneficial discussion points. 

 

Intel Tends to be better performing in games then ryzen thats no question, but the value of the 9900k over the 2700x is simply not there at this current price point. Its my argument against 2080ti over 1080ti, its 15-35% performance gain with a price increase of now 2x, simply not worth the price

pentium 4 4ghz? XD

I really wanted Intel to keep going with the Pentium 4 so I could talk about how my CPU reached 10GHz.
(if you're wondering, it's what people predicted if they weren't pushed by AMD.)

my dude i just read your comment wrong. i saw it as something completelty diffrent from what it was didnt inted on starting a argument. if you read my commet edited you would see i made this decision based on the point of view of "if i could get etheir one of these for free i would choose the 9900k" thats all.

given that the 9900k isn't out and we have no benchmarks to go by. i would say wait until it's out and we have benchmarks to go by

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

People say Intel is better for gaming. Yes, it's true but ... what's the point when GPU bottleneck is there ?

 

I hope you play game @1080p, for my case, i play @ 3440x1440 , so basically any CPU is fine. The price different is not justify real performance for gaming. Wait, maybe If i game @ 720p I will definitely get i9.

 

Even if Intel release 6 GHz CPU, real fps improvement is 1-2, unless Nvidia give us express ticket to faster lane 1 more time.

totally agree! you will first need a high end display, then high end gpu and then finally you may only benefit from 10-20fps in games.

All the benchmark I posted is using 1080Ti, the most high end card before RTX release. 

 

Even after RTX, things won't be different that much.

Right now wouldn't touch Intel's chip even with a stick until the re viewer's nda are lifted too much of bullshit cpated on the processors, just wait till the 19th. 

First Nvidia and thir RTX shit and now Intel with their cow manure.

Well...technically no one can buy the chip right now.  Pre-orders are meant to be broken.

I7-9900k is only ~ 15% faster in gaming but costs 78% more than ryzen 7 2700X.

 

I can't understand how dumb you should be to buy an intel. Even intel motherboard is more expensive thats makes the difference in price even bigger or over 80%. That's just insane.

So say the poor people. There is a difference between going for value and performance. 

 

I'm like, how many 2080Ti should I buy, once they are actually widely available. Don't actually need it, but it should be fun for a bit.

While the CPU prices themselves vary greatly, total system build needs to be taken into account.  

 

$200 at $300 to $500 is huge, $200 from $1800 to $2000 is just 10% (depending on which way you come at it).

 

Paying $3000 for Tech Package in a car is a huge addition, but if the car is $50k then to $53k... 

 

It's relative to how you look at it.
