NCIX were off hundreds of $ with Vega and the models they were listing were not even available on launch day.

I would not even consider anything from this. Also, the price is way too random. I never seen anything like 233.41$. it just doesn't happen.

I've seen two rumors of the 8700K US pricing: $349 and $359. I imagine we'll see some closeouts on the 7000-series CPUs between tomorrow and when the 8000 series CPUs hit the shelves. The 7600K and 7700K are very good gaming CPUs and all the better for anyone wanting to save some $ on a gaming system build.
 
^^They are comparing the Kaby Lake release price for comparison, not its current selling price. The initial retail release price of the 7700K was $349.99 USD when released nine months ago. When comparing CPU prices across different generations, you compare initial release prices, not current selling prices, rebates, Black Friday sales, etc. That's the only way to keep things standardized and consistent.

@PaulyAlcorn including the gamer quest video in this article has forced me to enable adblock to prevent auto-playing irrelevant crap from getting in the way of my enjoyment of this site. Please reconsider.

To be clear, I expect a certain amount of irrelevant crap on these tech review sites. It's the auto-playing full-width video that offends me. It's disruptive. It slows down the page loads, and I'm sure as hell not paying for the bandwidth on mobile. If you want to cost me, you choose to lose your ad revenue. Your choice.

The only mention made in the article, RE/ 7700 pricing, was for the present price, in CAD, from the same retailer. I'll compare them my way and I graciously grant you the right to compare them your way.

Will the i5 7400 now have price drop, since the i3 8100 has higher base clock than the boost clock speed of i5 7400, yet the i3 having only 64-65% of it's price?

Is anyone else perplexed by the non-K specs:
i7-8700, 6c/12t, 3.2/4.3/4.6 GHz
i5-8400, 6c/6t, 2.8/3.8/4.0 GHz
...to keep both at a 65w TDP?

With half the threads and 13% reduced clock speeds the TDP is the same(?)
Did they even try to tune these CPUs??

Intel's been doing this for at least several generations. Every locked CPU with the same core count (regardless of hyperthreading) has the same TDP. TDP isn't an accurate measure of power consumption, it's just an approximate number used to specify a level of cooling performance required. I would expect the 8400 to draw less power than the 8700. That, or the 8700 may exceed TDP under full load in order to maintain boost speeds.

Any details regarding i5-8500 / 8600
looking for that sweet spot sub-$300 cpu

also does base frequency still matter when shopping for a cpu? the gap between the base frequency of K and non-K 8700 is huge (3.20 GHz vs 3.80 GHz) but their 6-core boost is the same @ 4.30 GHz

IMO it is the best reason for buying a K part over a non-K part. If you don't overclock, you can just install a good quality 95 Watt TDP cooler on the K and get the full effect of the higher base clock without doing anything else.
 
Yep, these days I recommend people who don't even plan on overclocking to spend more and get a K-series chip. That used to not be the case. Sandy Bridge's K/non-K i5 2500/2500K and i7 2600/2600K had the exact same base/turbo speeds. Ivy Bridge's i5 3570/3770K did as well, but the i7 3770K had 100MHz more base speed (both still shared the same single core turbo speed). Haswell's i5 4690/4690K had the same base/turbo.

However, with Haswell's i7 4790/4790K the spread started widening at 3.6GHz core/4.0GHz turbo and 4.0GHz core/4.4GHz turbo respectively. Skylake's i5 6600/6600K was a 200MHz core gap but same boost. Skylake's i7 was when it got serious with a 3.4GHz core/4.0GHz boost of the 6700 and 4.0GHz core/4.2GHz boost of the 6700K. That's a 17% four-core clock speed boost, which is into enthusiast level overclocking territory. Kaby Lake's i7 7700/7700K was a similar kick up at 3.6GHz/4.2GHz and 4.2GHz/4.5GHz.

Well worth the extra money for those not wanting to get into overclocking and it's nice to see this trend continue with Intel's tick/tocks.

The 6700 boosts to 3.7 GHz with 4 cores, so the 6700k would only be ~8% faster under multithreaded loads. And 5% faster for single threaded loads.

That's a cute notion, but unlimited or even reasonably cheap mobile data isn't available everywhere in the world.

The disruption by the voice of a caveman-IQ gamer while I'm reading was more annoying than the data.

Adblock fixes that. Until they stop putting this crap into news articles I highly recommend it, to everyone who uses Tom's.
