    I doubt Intel is sending these around as they have not mentioned it. But I will request it.

    Hey Hilbert, Videocardz has the fine print with the article. It is conversation worthy

    AMD up 2.5% and nVidia is up 1.5% on the share price

    Intel down 0.4%

    Well it is a thin bin of a thin bin so who knows how many Intel can really make. They may keep the review samples fairly limited. I have a feeling this is one of those halo products that will look good on paper but buying one is going to be tough going.

    Such a precise TDP. I'm surprised they didn't just round it off, for marketing's sake. ;)

    Well for those that don't want to OC and have the fastest gaming CPU this fits the bill and for the price is pretty good. For me sitting with an original Ryzen im hanging out for next years Zen3 which is the end game for the AM4 socket.

    Im way happier with my Ryzen 7 2700X 8 cores 16 threads on 4.3GHZ all cores for $190. That is me coming from Intel only products for past 19 years.
    Never going back to Intel rip off over priced products for only a few percentage in performance that 99% of users will never even come close to using 24/7.
    I did a benchmark and got the highest score... now back to mine craft lol.

    there's a huge difference in some games even at 1080p, if you use g-syn freesync or something with much higher requirements black frame insertion (ulmb etc...) BFI only works as expected at 100+fps/Hz
    when you play modded games or use ENBs reshade which lower fps sometimes drastically, "vanilla" as we call them games benchmarks are meaningless..your 150fps become 80 and those 80 might well go under 60, in such cases those 20fps from "vanilla" 150-170fps benchmark become critical because that delta usually sticks when going down
    that's my skyrim, 2K,4K even 8K textures aren't free

    https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd....988/FDDA41EFAE8AA71D8E9E34CA9C64B3CE401874E0/
    sadly no still the ridiculously low 16pcie lanes + 24 from chipset (but all for nvme,sata,ethernet,usb etc...)
    I still haven't gone Ryzen 3900x because of the shenanigans of bios agesa updates and now time has passed so I'll just wait for the 3950x or Intel new lineup, I need more lanes for thunderbolt but I can live with only 3.1gen2 USB-C till then

    I'm glad you are happy with your mid range CPU but I don't see what your post has to do with the topic at hand?

    On 144Hz and 240Hz monitors difference between 2700X and 9900K can be 50% or even higher framerate, especially 0.1 percentile. More so with 9900KS.

    @Glottiz
    except almost everyone (as in+80% on this planet) will be better of getting a bigger gpu if they dont own something like a 2080/ti.
    e.g. getting this cpu and pairing it with anything lower than 2070S would be a waste of money, as gains on the gpu side will be much bigger.

    This will be great gaming CPU , no need to worry about the silicone lottery with this puppy , top binned 9900 and the price if the retailers don't go greedy and keep it as it is seems fair to me .

    Base frequency up to XXXX - its bad marketing or something has to be really wrong.. 40 PCI-E lines.. its pure marketing or we will see new chipset / socket again..
