Got mine for 2600x prices
The power TDP comparison on that site is probably the biggest thing. There is no way a 9900k at its stock "boost" speed uses only 95w vs 105w 2700x.
Nevermind that the 2700X is half the cost or less right now. $200 for what was last years top of the line 8 core is a good deal. The new chips are better but if Ryzen has taught me anything, AMD still has bugs to work out on new releases and one should wait 1-3 months or more for bugs/mobos to sort themselves out. All the ram issues with first gen Ryzen mobos made me regret jumping in. I should have known better but a $250 R7 1700 deal was impossible to ignore. Paid for it in ram costs.
