While it's good for Intel to cut the prices of top end i9-x980XE in half (from $1979 to $979), it was unfortunately positioned in an awkward position against the competing AMD Ryzen 9 3950X and Threadripper 3960X. This CPU offer better value than the preceding i9-9980XE while offering nearly similar performance as the preceding ones but would prefer paying less for Ryzen 9 3950X, Threadripper 2950X or more for mighty Threadripper 3960X instead.  [Dec '19 ColdSpy]

Intel’s tenth generation octa-core hyperthreaded i7-10700K is one of the fastest high-end desktop CPUs ever made. A simple overclock yields all 16 threads running at a staggering 5.1 GHz. Gaming and desktop performance is second only to the flagship i9-10900K. Although a new (Z490) LGA1200 motherboard is required, it will remain compatible with Rocket Lake CPUs which are due later this year. The 10700K’s $400 USD price tag puts it in a similar price band to AMD’s 12-core hyperthreaded Ryzen 9 3900X, however, the 10700K’s faster cores combined with its lower memory latency, yield a 12% effective speed advantage over the 3900X. Intra-generationally comparing the 10700K and 10600K shows that the 10600K offers almost identical gaming performance for 34% less money. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
