Prices for graphics cards, SSDs (NVMe, SATA, etc), and DDR4 are ludicrously out of control right now. I will tell every single person, "DO NOT BUILD A NEW PC RIGHT NOW!".

People complain that graphics cards are expensive right now but I remember buying my first graphics card which was 512mb card at $400 years ago. Now I can get a 4gb card for $200. Graphics cards have actually gone down in price when you consider inflation. Yes. If you want a 6gb or higher its going to cost you. Just like an i7 is going to cost you.... duuuuuhhhh.

Actually, not entirely correct. There are several games today that do 'care' and do use more than 4 cores. BF1, Battlefront II, Destiny 2, The Division, and many more use more than 4 cores. Future games will also do the same.

AMD Vega reviews, news, performance, and availabilityAMD Vega reviews, news, performance, and availability

With the super inflation of Vega card prices, it just doesn't make any sense to buy a Vega 56 or 64 card. Isn't the whole point buying an AMD card is to save money and have great performance? Well, that point is now moot, thanks to the hyperbole of bitcoin mining. The fact that Vega cards are not any better/more powerful than Nvidia cards for bitcoin mining has apparently been lost to those that don't know how to do their own research.

Intel Core i7 8700K review: Coffee Lake beats Ryzen, but proves games don't care for coresIntel Core i7 8700K review: Coffee Lake beats Ryzen, but proves games don't care for cores

Intel just doesn't get it - especially there moronic marketing department and corporate level idiots that continue to make horrible business decisions. Not only is the Coffee Lake performance abysmal with literally no improvements in overall IPC ratings vs. Sky Lake and Kaby Lake, but their product line pricing is absolutely ludicrous stupidity at it's best. AMD will continue to destroy Intel at both the consumer and commercial markets because Intel just does not know how to adapt to existing trends and needs of their customers.

You guys seem to be up to date on cpu's...


Im about to buy a EVGA GTX 1080 Ti with ISC Cooler, aand right now I use a i5-6500 and therefore wish to upgrade, recently PS3 emulation have got better performance and my current setup (GTX 1060 6gb, i5-6500 8gb) is running Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time 9-12 fps in game using RPCS3 (latest software and Sony firmware) so Im looking for *> a cpu that can encode very well

In a kaby lake i7 7700 PC... can I change/replace processor to coffee lake i7 8700... ?

No, you can not. Coffee Lake uses an all-new 1151 socket that utilizes different voltages. You will be required to buy a new Z370 motherboard if you want to upgrade to Coffee Lake. At least you will be able to reuse your DDR4 ;-)

Intel dropped the ball yet again. You can clearly see on any site that has done some basic IPC tests like here for example: https://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2017/10/Review-chart-template-2017-final.005-1440x1080.png
that there are no IPC improvements at all compared to the previous generation of chips, which I might add if you factor in the 7800 being two generations behind CL... ughhhhh.

and Intel did specifically mention there being IPC improvements with CL, which you, Dave, did mention when you replied to my comment on this article https://www.pcgamesn.com/intel/intel-coffee-lake-vs-kaby-lake "The 20% performance increase is specifically about the gains in single threaded speed. If you check out the article above it shows the overall boost, including the extra cores, is some 55%."

The only good thing to come from this launch is the fact that the i3 and i5 models received a bump to their core counts, and I can definitely see myself recommending them to people looking to build a PC. what a slap in the face though to anyone who bought a 7700k both in regard to upgradability, and price.

my only upgrade path at this point is coming in Q2/Q3 2018 with Zen2/TR refresh when AMD gets off the lowpower 14/16nm node and onto the 7nm/14nm high perf node. 2019 will be even better with 7nm w/ euv.
