Eh, if a product was designed to compete with the i7 6700K, that's what it should be compared to, regardless of the amount of cores. The Zen chip being displayed here has the same TDP as the 6700K, leading us to believe that's what it's competing against. Not X99 CPUs.

That's an easy one. It's from AMD.
Nope. You should compare it to the current gen and it's equivalently priced product. If it's priced at 350-ish, that would be the 6700K. If it's more like 250-ish, it would be 6600K.
And if AMD pops an 8 or 16 core with decent performance, it might just compete as well with X99.
Either way, I hope AMD undercuts Intel by a lot
for the same performance and brings down Intel's monopoly pricing.
