Depends on how much they cost compared to the performance increase over AMD Ryzen chips.  If I can get an AMD Ryzen for 500 less than the i9 and its a small increase in performance then NOPE

Yea depends on the overall price, intel's current highest core count cpu is the 6950x. At 10 cores this is currently $1649.99 from Newegg. I expect this upcoming 12 core I9 to be north of that. 

I have not really had much to do with amd but With the Ryzen 9 Possible coming out with 16 cores it could be a close comparison in performance

If I had upwards of £1000 to blow, it'd be on hookers and booze, not on a processor.

I'm always wary on the 'bleeding edge' of this type of technology anyway. I usually wait a year or 2 after bleeding edge tech is released; That way, I know it's decent, will stand the test of time and the price is right. Buying technology at the moment it's creators release it is often (but not always) a bad idea and a waste of money.

Of course, I'm not a scientist or someone who would need this kind of processing power. So it's going to be entirely personal preference.

Can't say I agree with the first bit, but the second bit is basically spot on. Same with third bit really...

If I had the money laying around, I would definitely grab that monster cpu. I saw a graph that was saying they are expecting the 16 core monster to go for 2k usd...lol. That's almost as much as my entire gaming rig cost me....lol
