Intel launched Skylake this week and obviously much of KitGuru’s focus has been on the new architecture and supporting motherboards from partners such as ASUS. But what if you need more processing cores and a gaming system that has greater potential to double up as a personal workstation? Overclockers UK have released their new Titan Riptide X99 system with that goal in mind. With a price point almost identical to a similarly spec’d Skylake system does the 5820k powered Titan Riptide actually make more sense?
Prices of the 6 core i7 5820k have dropped in recent weeks, and the processor is now available for £299.99 inc vat (HERE) – only £10 more than the 4 core i7 4790k (HERE). This is at time of publication, OCUK can change their pricing quite often.
