    Yikes!

    Was just finalising what mobo to go for and the 10900k’s have shot up best part of £70

    They were £479.99 now upto £559.99

    Would have thought they’d have gone down a bit with the way Ryzen have been selling

    Makes me think Intel still want to be seen as the premium brand.

    I was close to picking a 10700k or 10850k over a Ryzen. Both have increased today and its put me off completely!

    What do ya mean fella?

    I know the new Ryzen CPUs are around the corner, one of the reasons I’m surprised to see a price hike.

    Probally upped the price for when the new AMD CPU's released to make them look premium, then put them on some sort of scam sale at same price as Ryzen, trying to pretend they are a good deal lol.

    yes probably, said something like that in another thread I think

    black friday coming up too so maybe companies are making a higher price look like the new "normal" so black friday deals look better than they are... happens all the time.

    that is quite weird ...

    Oh no it does come with the "Intel Marvel Avengers game bundle" supposedly worth £65 . :)

    My friend brought the 10850k Avengers edition for £419 last week but now its £470. Intel are making it easier for people to decide if they should buy Intel or Ryzen :rolleyes:
