what a joke
skylake strikes again
This CPU will probably cost 700 US too. So many people are waiting for Zen 2. It does not matter what crap Intel pulls now. The momentum for the upcoming Ryzen 3000 series from AMD just can't be stopped now. They are going to gain a substantial amount of market share and mind share this year.
AMD fanboy's attacking Intel for these binned CPUs, yet..... didn't AMD just release a "Special Edition" binned CPU recently?
At least the Intel i9 9900KS Special Edition will have better performance Out of the Box than the Ryzen 7 2700X Special Edition. In fact, a Regular 9900K is better than 2700X special edition
Not a fanboy here at all. What I am a fan of is fair pricing of products for the performance that is offered. I already said previously too in another thread that the R7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition was a pointless product as well.
them amd fanboys are here......they jelly......
Nice. Let me guess, 95w tdp, 150-200w real use?
Im still wonder how they keep selling good.
Why would people be jealous ? Zen 2 has a 15 percent IPC gain. This is before the improved clock speeds are even taken into account.
Easy to attack Intel and its poor 14nm+++++++++++ dry cow.
AMD is on the roll, easy to catch a hype.
Special Edition is like Intels 8086K edition, just a collectors item.
Intel is doing what AMD been doing to Piledriver. Doesn't FX-9590 strike a resemblance? Desperate times calls for desperate actions.
Boy, it's even the same 5GHz out of the box!
huh .... Indeed !
Hmm, new socket melting chip? Maybe they should finish die shrink 1st.
Despite for gaming i would chose Ryzen, the 9*** don't have the vulnerability...
lol with older gen at 5Ghz i was below, so if this one get upper then intel is really bad lol
Yeah they got hardware mitigation i think.
Have they fixed it? IIRC they said that they will release something with it around late 2019 / 2020. Although I could easily imagine that those 5GHz then wouldn't bring the same raw performance as without the mitigations.
Waiting for the ryzen 3800X
Okey, but what happens to the speed when all vulnerabilities are patched?
(sorry, i just had it with Intel and can't resist joking)
Don't know, it was on the Intel website when i was looking at this gen spec while having free time to waste (i won't buy this CPU anyway, i am more powerfull stable Xeon to work and small but fantastic Athlon GE to do things that is not work).
Limited edition or Special edition or not but both the fastest factory Coffeelake and Coffeelake Refresh CPUs of both series.
8086K and 9900KS will remain the world's fastest 6&8 cores CPUs for 2019 ..
Both are stock factory 4GHz base.. Both factory 5GHz Turbo
8086K is faster than the 3600X!
9900KS is faster than the 3800X!
Both can OC to top 5.3GHz
Yes Ryzen 3000 series is more power efficiency and cost less than Intel but slightly slower than Intel top Coffeelake 8086K and Coffeelake Refresh 9900KS.
Binned or not the stock 9900KS is faster than the 3800X ... That's the hole point ..
Unless you’re gaming at 1080p...none of this matters. Give me more cores any day of the week.
I play at 4K so CPU doesn’t really matter. Who knows, maybe Cyberpunk 2077 will push the CPU hard, but I’d imagine more cores will do more work rather than faster clocks. Either way...we’ll mostly be GPU bound anyway and none of this will matter. We’ll be lucky to hit over 60 FPS.
1st, AMD released 50th anniversary edition, nothing special about it. (It is celebration edition which includes IHS with Lisa's signature, T-Shirt, 2 special edition games and some other nice things. But CPU is same.)
2nd, i9-9900K costs double of regular 2700X and almost double of 2700X 50th anniversary.
3rd, i9-9900KS is unlikely to improve this price difference.
4th, at price of i9-9900KS, people will consider getting even Ryzen 9 3950X
