    Question now is price and power consumption.

    Intel still releasing CPUs made on 14nm is mad.

    As long as they can sell them I don't expect them to drop price, and yes those TDPs don't look good at all.

    Well, it's their last 14nm chip. Alder Lake is 7nm 10nm and should come out in Q4 21 to be later replaced by Meteor Lake supposedly built using a 7nm node, 10nm has been a complete failure.

    This is just a backport of their 10nm cores to fight with AMD and don't let them win by 20% on every benchmark.

    It's not a drop, but a price increase. The current 8 core 10700k is ~$350 USD. Given the (lack of) availability of Zen 3, I think they'll still sell. Yes the power rating also necessitates a high end motherboard and cooling system to get the best out of Rocket Lake (also because Intel does not allow memory OC on lower end boards, and they won't have PCIE 4.0 either). That in itself can run a $100 or more vs a comparable AMD system.
    10SF isn't looking too bad really, they probably just dont have the volume to cater to desktop and hence the backport. And 10ESF should bring some further gains. Alder Lake might just be a good competitor to Zen 4.

    That i9 seems like the most redundant thing ever.



    I think the 11600k can become a great chip. We'll see.

    I believe 6c/12t is starting to show some limitations, and with 8c/16t (on a good cpu) around on consoles, I believe 8c/16t is a safer bet.
