    so thus far we have the lowest clocking 8700k stable at max. 4.8 Ghz (according to silicon lottery). which makes sense, considering that one core max. boost of 8700k is 4.7 ghz and since intel doesnt determine the best core like AMD does they have to ensure that all cores are capable to achieve 4.7 ghz stable.

    so with the 8086K we have a single core turbo of 5.0 ghz, thus the absolute worst clocking cpus would be at 5.0-5.1 ghz all cores. thats 200-300 mhz more than the 8700k.

    curious to see if the max bins will also be able to push 200-300 mhz, thus resulting in golden chips doing 5.5-5.6 ghz with ambient cooling solutions (8700k golden chips being 5.3 ghz).

    problem here is that theres only gonna be 50.000 cpus available worldwide, so not much room / volume for golden cpu bins to pop up anywhere but the most exclusive / "thicc" wallets capable to pay for them

    Well, it looks like Intel figured out how to take their $350 8700k CPU, skim the top binned 8700k's, and squeeeeeze another $100 out of their most loyal customers.

    Leaving the bottom binned 8700k's...for everyone else. :(

    The way I look at it is that if I win they sweepstakes, I'm getting the squeeze on intel.

    I've already seen one chip that can do 5.4Ghz on a YouTube video, if we see more at 5.4Ghz all core or higher, I will be all over this chip. Until then if it's a guaranteed 5.0Ghz or 5.2Ghz chip, meh I have that already with my 8700K and it's not even delidded yet.

    Plus the limited edition, anniversary thing naming thing is cool IMO. Ahh Marketing 101. Such a sucker I am.

    Yes, that is the important of this processor! I do not have any desktop to put in, but I purchased immediately one, because it is a really special one, only 50.000 of them are made. I will either build a computer based on it or if Ebay prices will go up to $1000 I will sell it.

    No, people are giving $1000 for first gen Iphones and still more than a million exist worldwide and they good for nothing. This CPU is limited, anniversary and very capable.

    well yeah, but the iphone is quite iconic and was basically revolutionary for general smartphone design. what does the 8086K bring to the table? other than commemorating a completely different chip that ACTUALLY revolutionized computer hardware?

    the fact that its a limited edition is not sufficient for it to go to staggering heights on the resale market...
