    Funny, a new Intel Core i9 9900 SKU has surfaced in an AIDA changelog listing, now each of the suffix letters has a meaning, but combined really this is the Core i9-9900 KFC edition, fastfood anyone?...

    For the price of Intel CPUs they might as well throw in KFC. Lots of it.

    Intel Management: "We are losing so much market share, our products can't compete with Ryzen, what can we do?"
    Intel PR: "Let's change the name to something everyone likes, KFC! people love chicken"
    Intel Management: "Chicken?! that's genius!"

    "Intel runs so hot you can cook your own Colonel Sanders famous chicken wings at home. New i9-9900KFC, probably the most tasty processor in the world."

    It's simple guys:

    "The three letters in the suffix all have a logical meaning, but here they are contradictory. The K means an unlocked multiplier so that it can be tweaked better. F means the lack of an active integrated GPU. The letter C, however, was used in the Broadwell generation, where it stood for an improved integrated GPU with eDRAM. So that is a bit of a clusterfrack."

    so it's an unlocked processor without an iGPU but with eDRAM! Special collector's edition! Order now and taste the speed!

    Yes but when those Broadwell with eDRAM's were used with a discrete GPU, the eDRAM was used as a L4 cache giving quite a big boost to performance.
    So not completely useless.

    Meanwhile, if they made a mobile variant, they could add a U to the mix. At that point, it becomes a fun game of "unscramble that word!"
