    Intel Core i9 18 core desktop

    Looks like Intel may not be letting AMD out do them by core count, from VideoCards.com, it could be real pricey to have the top dog this generation

    And I do well to use two or three cores of the four I have available! "Pricey" is the operative word in your statement from where I'm sitting but I suppose some will have use for more.

    Some 7740X benches were posted to HWBOT today, so they're coming along with R6 APEX.

    Lots of serious benchers went for the 6950X at its high price. These won't be any different.
    I'm wondering how much premium Silicon Lottery will add for really good ones.

    Did I understand correctly that all these new CPUs will come with paste instead of soldering (underneath the IHS)?

    How much more heat will be generated with so many cores on the high end? Won't this restrict overclocking to some degree (pun intended)?

    Well, you always will have water, then chiller, then phase - heck, you can even go to liquid nitrogen!

    Software will have to catch up in order for any of them to be really useful for anything other than bragging rights and benchmarking, at least for the mainstream gamer. I use the i7-6950X and don't need anything near that much now. The PCIe lanes are more important now IMO than the speed. Of course, next build I'll buy one just for fun.

    Although pricey a little lower than current generation, thanks to AMD being back in the game
    It does seem strange that Intel is going to put TIM on these chips, it is one thing delidding a $350.00 dollar chip but a $2000.00 chip is another story
