Still no benchmarks? This thing has been available for a few weeks already where i live.
I'd want to compare it to the 8700k, the 8700k keeps getting in and out of stock and i'm starting to consider getting the 9700k however i don't know how well it'd fare against the older i7.

From what my mate told me if you're running 7th or 8th gen CPU and aren't enthusiast, don't bother upgrading yet. Rally minor upgrade.

The difference is not big between those 2, but if you can find the i7 9700k almost same price, get it.
