Well it looks like these are already available at MemEx. Prices range from $529.99 for the 7700K all the way down to $169.99 for the i3-7100. Well I should mention the i3's aren't in stock yet, so the cheapest available is the i5-7400 at $269.99.

Wonder what, if anything, AMD will influence the price of these once Ryzen comes out.

Kinda ridiculus for the 7350K to be priced at $250.

Price match the 7700k to PC Canada @ $475.99

Or the 7600k @ $330.99

I'll still wait for AMD to see what they come out with. If they offer a decent product at a competitive price, I'd probably pick one up just to promote the competition in the market again.

To be fair, that computer listed is 799 US, around $1100 Canadian.

To get the best mainstream CPU, you pay top dollar. Although the 7700k is only about $20 more than the 6700K, not much of a first adopter tax.

On the subject of poo on intel for not giving people enough reasons to upgrade from Sandy etc.

The significantly higher 'minimum' fps in many games that the 6700k and 7700k (assume the i5 variants as well) provides over previous gens, including Devil's Canyon is staggering. I'm pretty sure having the brightest best case scenarios is more important for gaming than averages or 'highest' fps.

The 7700k is for the 6700k what the 4790K was for the 4770K.

Hopefully we'll see good gains for X299. The 5960x got within 4.4 to 4.6Ghz; basically the same as a 4770k. The 4790K got within 4.7 to 4.9 GHz. The 6700K got 4.6 to 4.8 GHz, so for X299, if it matches the 6700K, we'll see both a slight IPC gain from Skylake E versus Haswell E and the IPC gains. We will hopefully also see faster RAM as well, same speeds as Skylake and Kaby Lake.

Kaby seems in the 4.9 to 5.2 GHz range. As if to complete the parallel, Z97 released the M.2 slots, while Kaby Lake seems to have brought us Optane. Granted, NVMe Optane might lead to some decent performance gains over conventional SSDs, but it will really depend on your applications.

Hopefully AMD's Zen will force some prices down in this front. I'm far more interested to see if they've really exceed that 45% target.
