I'm thinking the Intel "manufacturer's suggested (but don't sell below) retail price" for the 8700K will be $399 in the US.

8700k $299 at Microcenter, my next CPU.

Hopefully we won't have to de-lid again to get best temps.

I'm sure it won't be soldered. Best keep an eye out for the delidding tools to be released.

Intel isn't even soldering enthusiast segment models like the i7-7820X, so it is a good assumption that the 8700K won't be, either. Gob of horseshit...

Wish Intel would offer a soldered version. Call it something like "i5/i7-xxxKS" or "Indium Edition", tack on a modest upcharge of no more than $20-30, and watch them sell like hotcakes on a snowy Sunday.

Extremely unlikely given the 1151 platform is always cheaper part for part vs the HEDT.

I think its going to be between 349-359 for the 8700k.

I don't know, the prices most recent X series CPUs is pretty close to parity for 1151 vs 2066, for SKUs where parity exists. The price difference in motherboards, however, is a different matter entirely.

The current Skylake X 6/12 SKU (7800X) is going for ~$399, so that's where I would expect a new 6/12 8800K to land.

thanks to amd, you now get 50% more intel cores for free
I would be very surprised if it were to be free. What I fully expect: You get more cores, but at the price you would have paid for those cores in an Intel CPU today anyway. It's just now you can get them on a less expensive platform that you couldn't get before (although Z370 prices aren't in the wild yet, I would assume that they cost less than X299).

For instance, what I expect: if you were building a standard Intel KL 4C/4T gaming machine today, you would probably use an 7600 i5. For CL, to get that same 4C/4T you might use an i3, but that CL i3 will cost pretty much the same as the KL i5 did.

Don’t you worry, Intel will get the money for those two extra cores, one way or another.

Remember this one needs a new chipset... My spider-sense tells me that the Z370 might have a little price rise, you know, cause it’s hard to support 6 cores, more mystery Kung foo needed, and those awful motherboard companies have to pass the costs on... :D

If Ryzen 3/5/7 didn't exist I think I would agree with you. But at the low end Intel can't afford to play games with consumers that are very quickly starting to understand that Ryzen is a real option for purchase.

Competition hasn't stopped them from charging more in the past. Their brand name and recognition means a good deal, even in the face of competition. A lot of people won't even consider anything other than Intel, no matter the comparative performance or cost.

Official release will see, I would love to see lower prices from Intel - I just don't think we will see that, because they have never really done that.

Delid Mate 2 will be compatible with Coffeelake

I think I'll wait till Ice Lake comes out (theoretically next year). My 6700k is more than adequate (and even then I probably would only be upgrading for the sake of upgrading).

For the first time in a decade I'm looking at boards like the gigabyte x370, which I just snagged one for about $80 after rebate... and a 1700 which can be found pretty easy for $280.

That's one HELL of a cheap 8 core beast.

That said, since I game a lot, I'm looking at snagging a 8700k tomorrow morning if the price is reasonable. 11% better IPC and two more cores? Hell yes please. It's what the 7700k should have been.

I'm very excited with the i7 8700 at 65w TDP. Have finally realized I'm just not into overclocking anymore so a slightly slower i7 that uses much less power is perfectly fine with me. Might finally have a reason to upgrade my PC.

If I hadn't built my 7700k system earlier this year, I'd be heading down to Microcenter myself.
However, at 5Ghz I don't see a reason to upgrade for a long time.
Only advantage of the 8700k would be the faster HD video compression due to the extra cores. Not something I do that often.

Ya think the HT bug will make it three generations?

Most likely yes - still the same microarchitecture/underpinnings. They'll just keep dealing with/addressing it in MB firmware / cpu errata for now so that it isn't a concern and fix it when they do a real update to the core microarchitecture in a future release and not a recycle/tweak of existing tech.

I'm thinking the X99 / 5820K might get replaced by one of these 8700Ks in the future...I think 6 cores is more than enough for what I do, so why spend the extra cash for X299 or TR?

I've been out of the PC scene since I built my Sandy Bridge system (i7-2700k in...'12?). I've heard a lot of hype for Ryzen, but is this a reiteration/incremental step up from Kaby Lake? Looking to build a new system for photo/video editing with minimal gaming on the side.

Erm, not sure if being sarcastic... but if your not, you can’t go wrong with a Ryzen R5 or R7 if you want even more power. A Threadripper system would be a top of the line video editing machine, maybe too powerful, unless your editing in more than 4K.

These “new” Intel chips are just a rebrand of the 7th gen, at the mid range, the low range ones have more cores, but less speed, and much less thermal headroom. The high end has a couple of more cores, and less thermal headroom.
