    PMSL, like they were prioritised for nvidia 3000 series, AMD 5000 series and Radeon 6000 series. If anything the new releases have shown OCUK isn’t any further up the queue than anyone else

    Agreed, they’re delusional pushing hype onto their “i9”, which is overpriced rubbish, instead of putting that marketing into a segment where they can be competitive.

    Sounds thoroughly made up, as usual.

    I'm curious how the 10900K from OcUK is £698.99 vs £599.99 for the 11900K.

    The pricing elsewhere is more sensible, just how it goes sometimes

    I'm more puzzled as to why the Internet is not up in arms over the price. The 5800x got (rightly) slated for its high launch price, however the 11900k is half the price again on top... yet its slower, hotter and less efficient (but comes in a better box to be fair).

    Anyone buying this must really love Intel, because it's an irrational choice. Could understand if it was the best or fastest, but it's neither. Very strange launch and even stranger pricing.

    Honestly don't hear of that many people rushing out to buy it though, most people can see it's a bad choice.

    I mean, most of what I've seen written about the 11900K has described it as a complete joke that nobody should buy, ever. It was savaged by all the major tech Youtubers. The general consensus seems to be that the only Rocket Lake chips worth considering are the hexa-core parts.
