AMD is still better than Intel just because of the amount of PCIE lanes.
And 16 cores vs 10. But Intel will launch more core CPU's later. Basically downstripped Xeons of the new gen.
Maybe the 2.000$ CPU will be amongst those
PS In some tests the new 10 core stays behind the 6950 and even the 1800X. Looks like non optimized drivers and early bios versions...
now where have i seen that before..
Another recent launch maybe.
Usually Intel is much better prepared. The early launch shows they are not 100% ready yet.
And everybody still tries to grasp what they try to achieve with porting Kaby Lake to X299.
Maybe if you want the top tier platform and only an entry level cpu now, to upgrade to their monsters later.
But IMO, buyers with the money to grab a 400$ motherboard will have no issue spending 600-1000$ for a cpu at the same time. It just makes no sense.
For normal consumers the entry level chipset is much better. For the price difference you can grab some extra Ram or an SSD.
