So equal in performance to an i7-8700k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p3hPLiUJl8

Great price if you can't find the 8700k at MSRP. Supposedly there will be a greater supply of the 8700k over the next couple of months. Been seeing a lot of AMD products / free sync monitors going on sale lately.

Why would I wait for another CPU of similar performance, if the 1800x is already available... integrated GPU?

Because this big discount is just a tad less than MSRP of competitor. I don't see it as that much of a deal for a platform that took AMD forever to come out with and compete. I'm afraid of next gen sucking. (I'm not taking into account availability and price gouging that stems from it)

Uh 8700k is atleast 10% faster on most apps at the same speed and probably overclocks higher too. The only place the 1800x competes is with apps that can use the 16 threads.

For a $100 cheaper ( at this moment) the 1800x is a FAR BETTER DEAL than what a 8700k would offer for so-called 10% performance, barely noticeable for those not staring at benchmarks..
What's most noteable is getting STELLAR multicore performance NOW, at around $100 cheaper than its closest competitor.

But then, why go red when blue is better, right?

With 8 series Intel out and Pinnacle being put on the market q1 next year, i think we'll get much larger price drops on ryzen before year end.

Exactly. This sale being so close to MSRP of a competing CPU doesn't amount to much.

Not team red or blue im team me. Been holding out because i wanted the best but availability issues from intel on 8700k , which i would buy in a heart beat at msrp, ar making this deal very very appealing. Gonna keep eyes peeled and it intel can't work it out soon might just jump on this..

if anyone expect red and blue going into price wars, should re-assess their pov, especially after them signing a deal to position both companies in an alliance against the green...

blue is blue... their margins and dividends rely on their capacity to rip off their customers... Has been like that for the last 10 years... and you see the same trend when they locked the backward compatibility of their "new" chipset, ripping off their customers once again...

red products, in this case the 1800x but you can include the 1700s in here as well which are barely any different from 1800x, are obviously the better deal here with double the core count they provide... especially in the current atmosphere in the IT world where every major software company is trying to be a part of the upcoming "parallel processing" boom...
and more ethical business practices by the red compared to blue, makes it a safer eco-system to be in for consumers...

just mt 2 cents...

Cheaper MB to boot. On multicore performance, 1800X is about the same or exceed 8700k.

You could wait for 8700k to come in stock in a couple of months, or wait for ryzen refresh which will edge out 8700k in performance in 3 months. Or you can buy an 1800x now, and not have to upgrade in the next decade.

If you want max fps for gaming then go with 8700k, but for overall 1800x is better.

And the 1800x is still really good for gaming...not so much compared to Intel once dropping below an r5 1600 though.

8700k will be a better deal, since the intel chip can easily clock around 5-5.2ghz it can even beat the 1800x in productivity work while completely destroying it in gaming. Ryzen atm is just hindered by its low clock speeds.
