What AMD does 4.3ghz all core stock? My 2700x requires 1.5v to get 4.15ghz all core stable and 1.525 to get 4.2ghz. The system will not boot with all core set to 4.3ghz.So you can get an AMD 8 core that does 4.3 ghz stock, and 90% of the IPC of the Intel for $319, but $500 for 5 ghz makes them "poor" in IPC and clockspeed ? And Intel and AMD both gain on fast ram, but AMD can run just fine on 2400. For over 50% more cost I think the AMD is a better value than the Intel, but yes, that is a nice chip IF it will do 5 ghz at stock vcore.
We will see.
I tested this on two 2700x chips(I bought two off amazon and returned the one which couldn't do 4.1ghz all core at any voltage). I would agree with the statement above regarding price performance if the 2700x were clocked at 4.5+ghz but, when\if this Intel processor arrives it could have a 1ghz advantage all core and more in single\dual thread scenarios.
