    It's just some marketing fib. Intel's own product page says 16 lines. The bigger problem is that one year warranty mentioned. It's exceedingly strange if it's not an error in the text. Normally CPUs have a three years warranty, after all. If it was just a single year for this, it would mean Intel knows something that we don't.

    So they've squeezed it so hard that it will last only one year?

    Only ~50€ difference between 3700X and 9700K, and 9700K is a better in gaming CPU. You make it sound like AMD is a charity and their CPUs are free, lol.

    nope, never said that nor hinted it..
    my problem is with ppl just posting "its the best..", when almost every normal user will be better off upgrading their gpu first.
    and those (as in most here) that have a +500$ gpu and the ecosystem to support such cpu (board/cooling/power), know already what it is.

    no one interested in the top tier 1 hardware will buy something, only because some posted "its the best..",
    but most that dont know better, will just glance over posts (below reviews) and decide to spend lots of cash for less return (in perf),
    than they could have gotten with upgrades on other parts.

    lets say the "best" car is a +500HP RWD two door sports car.
    now drop it into 5ft of snow in Alaska. Still think its the best? nope, and even a 20y old pickup with 4WD would outperform it..

    Not even... it's only a binned one that can goes up to 5.0 all core
    the good news is the price of the 3rd part binned one that goes up to 5.0 are more expensive than this SE.
    I would have bought 8086k for the name (same as the Pentium G3258 anniversary) but this one doesn't even have a legend's name.

    Also you can buy the "normal one" for less money and OC it yourself if you don't reach the 5.0 on all core you will get more over stock clock...
    I will not add "or you can get a Ryzen" for 2 reason:
    - It's an Intel info and so fanboy would launch the Spanish Holly Intel Inquisition on me (same as you post intel on AMD news) lol
    - Right now there is not enough 3900X in shop (out of stock since 2 week after the launch, i am on the waiting list).

    Good luck with Intel XD

    ehm, 0.1 percentile?
    Who does it care about that?
    That is likely the highest fps you see for a fraction of second in an hour of game?
    I think 95 perecentile is the thing to look at?

    9900ks sure is winning even there.

    It's just a desperate move to take some of that attention back..

    Well, they would get it for sure with 10 or 7nm process :D

    Intel keeps tossing these distractions out whenever someone reposts the fact they cancelled 10nm and have nothing new to sell for another 3 years.

    Oh wait, remastered games actually bring something NEW.
    Not so much with these Skylake CPUs on steroids.

    That 1 year warranty is not a good sign to me, the voltage is probably borderline and might slowly eat the cpu.

    127W TDP is pretty much nothing. This 9900K @5GHz, I'm pretty sure hits 175W+/- with a pretty solid VCore of 1.3 these look like cherry picked chips, with regular voltages that we used to dream about receiving lol

    Chip at those clocks pulls 160-170w or more so tdp is just bs.

    From the review posted here https://www.tomshardware.com/features/intel-special-edition-core-i9-9900ks-benchmarked it can be overclocked to 5.2 at 1.36 V. It maintains the turbo speed continuously and not in bursts as speculated earlier, temperatures in the 85-89C range during extended AVX stress tests at stock settings with the Corsair H115i cooler. However, it is noteworthy that the processor maintained a 5.0 GHz clock rate during those tests. Price performance ratio AMD Ryzen 3900 X is still better, pure performance on gaming: if you want +2 FPS - this CPU is better, pure performance on multi threaded applications Ryzen 3900X is the best.

    No one ever cared about TDP, and no one will ever do ;)

    I just care about raw performance, that's why i Loved the good old Evga 780ti classified. It pulled 650w with Evbot and cold water :D

    Political correct in 2019: Saying they buying AMD Ryzen, buys silently 9900ks :p

    I do not get the 513 number of the price i get a 499.99 price tag the 4 looks better than just saying 500
    This looks like a very odd number . On the other hand in such product i guess it does not matter.

    Most likely if supplies are limited, one will pay a bit more than the $513 price.

    Yes, that caught my eye - easy though, they will burn out before a normal 3 yr warranty :D
