That is true. I am really thinking of just cancelling the 11900k order I have with B&H.I'd rather have your CPU than his. Those extra threads are going to be more important than the extra cores alone as time goes by. I have seen Techdeals play Breakpoint with the 9700K, no discord or anything running, and it was right on the edge of being used up. It won't be long before that happens.
I missed a great opportunity to get a 9900k for $250 from Microcenter and just plop all my existing components in a new case..becuause airflow and thermals suck on my old entho evolve atx.
OP if you want more threads and are willing to pay $850 + tax ShopBLT has a preorder que for 5950x chips coming sometime in mid April.
