If you cant wait, these are genuine. 16 core for under 500 isnt something to sneeze at.


There Are also some 18 core i9 7980s for about $700.

You can find them cheaper than that. Roughly 5-600. Km tempted to pick one up for giggles

I do think 11700k might be a real contender. I've looked up 5ghz scores and they are 16000 and if they produce less heat then that could be a real benefit. What I didn't realize was the 5800x was the same price. But I don't know anything about AMD and thats the second issue. Reviews on those say they produce way less heat which would be a lot better since I pretty much have to use an air cooler to ensure yearrrs reliability. I'm just not sure on if an amd is the right choice yet.
