[Canada Computers] CC: Intel 9th/10th gen CPU $30 off with code CPHD00000047 + FS

It is originally a bundle code. But as always, the code works with CPU itself for all models on the page.
It is said $30 - $50 off. But for most 10th Gen CPU, only $30 off.
Kinda warm for 10400 for $250.

And if you bundle a GIGABYTE B460M DS3H MB, then apply the code, you get $324+tax for the whole combo. It is cheaper than any AMD3600 + MB combo

Who's buying an Intel CPU in 2020?

Genuinely interested to know. Which CPU from Intel did you get / are you getting? And why that SKU?

Specter, meltdown, zombieload and no innovation for the last 10 years just because AMD went on vacation. Please vote with your wallets and reward the company who actually put in the work. Intel will spring back eventually but they don't deserve your money until they dig themselves out of the mess in which they've buried themselves.

I'd buy AMD without any hesitation if I didn't have an existing intel system. I wish I didn't.

Just bought a 9700 (from 8400) for upgrade. For ppl buying 10xxx CPUs, I just don't understand why. Probably exclusive gamers.

Even for gaming it makes no sense. For the AAA games these days the difference is the GPU. Everything else is irrelevant but what's not irrelevant is the undeniably superior performance lead AMD has in everything that's not gaming-related. Don't get me wrong, I'm no AMD fanboy. I buy whichever processor is best and have done for years, stretching back all the way to the glory years 20 years ago the last time AMD briefly took the performance throne. This time....Intel has really f-ed the dog and dug itself a huge hole to climb out of. No one should be buying new Intel chips in 2020. I still buy old Xeons for home servers but Intel for anything else - naw.

Intel is still performing a bit better in games, gap's closing, but still better avg fps and 1% low fps (ryzen 4000 might change this over intel 10xxx). That's why I said for exclusive gamers. They all use the best gaming GPUs, and CPU, which is intel for now. I understand your point and I'm with you. But depending on the use case, intel CPUs make sense for them, since they use their rig solely for gaming. Main stream and high-end AMD and Intel CPUs have no real-life performance difference on light/medium load tasks. AMD CPUs pull far ahead on heavy multi-thread tasks, while intel leads (not a lot) in single thread tasks. That's just what it is right now.

I'm no intel fan boy, just stating what I see from the reviews. I love it so much that Apple ditched them.

I know I'm risking to be downvoted now but I thought amd ryzens have better value for money but if you need absolute performance Intel is still better.
If you have adjusted prices/discount from intel isn't it a better value now and all downvotes are just fanboism?

This really comes down to the specific type of workload that you need.

Even for gaming, its really down to the gpu.

I'm running my old 3770k (at 4.2ghz) with a 2080TI and modern games still fly at 120+fps. The cpu certainly isn't the bottleneck at high resolutions.

I'm just holding out for some sales on the latest gen ryzens as I'm way overdue for an upgrade on mobo/cpu/ram.

Any benchmark online will show Intel is still winning with the fps gaming race. I bought my 9700 last year and have a amd 2700 as my Plex server / second gaming machine and it hurts me to say it, I would still go Intel for gaming. Hopefully AMD kills Intel with single core performance and forces Intel to smarten up.

Yeah and for Sony vegas and any single threadded apps. Intel still performs better.

I use a r5 3600 in a HTPC downstairs. AMD is great.
