    Those 6C/12T & 8C/16T are scheduled for 2020.

    "45W TDP" like the "95W TDP" on 9900K?

    Yes. Indicated TDP is for base frequency.

    3.6GHz for 9900k and 9700k
    3.7GHz for 8700K
    etc...

    And this is stupid and misleading!, they take very low Base clock and advertize as 15/25/45/65/95W TDP but when you use it you get X2 the power usage and Heat!.
    The customers should know the real TDP for all core turbo. few years back it was OK since the delta was small but now that 9900K take almost double the Wattage- it's just misleading!

    I agree, but this has been the reality for many years. It's just more noticeable now, since boost clocks are higher and there are more cores.

    On AMD's side it has been other way around for very long time. Carrizo APUs downclocking CPU/GPU just to stay within rated 65/95W. Same goes for Ryzen, unless you tell it to go above limit, it stays within.

    Those high wattage models in black better have a bigger chassis and better cooling. The 'Skull Canyon' (45 watt/4 core/8 thread)model had heat problems. If they make a cooling solution that can actually handle the 100 watt model with Vega M, then maybe these 45 and 65 watt models will be OK. If they do the "Skull/Hades Canyon" low profile box, then I see more thermal issues coming.
    'Note: Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows the processor to operate at a power level that is higher than its TDP configuration and data sheet specified power for short durations to maximize performance.'
    'Configurable TDP-up is a processor operating mode where the processor behavior and performance is modified by raising TDP and the processor frequency to fixed points. The use of Configurable TDP-up is typically executed by the system manufacturer to optimize power and performance. Configurable TDP-up is the average power, in watts, that the processor dissipates when operating at the Configurable TDP-up frequency under an Intel-defined, high-complexity workload.'

    I do agree with you to the extent that it's a confusing mess to the average consumer. I feel like the GPU boost speeds are even more vaguely described by most manufacturers. That's just how the marketing is now. Back when they were made, most Intel boards were pretty conservative with the boost. Many 3rd party boards are pretty aggressive. If you ran, for example, an ASUS CSM(Corporate Stable Model) you might see more modest turbo speeds(and temps) than an ROG model.
    The "advertised speed" is questionable now as see products like Vega or MacBook Pro(and probably these NUCs) that can't reach advertised speeds because they can't keep cool.
    Also Intel trying to cram too much in tiny chassis makes it more noticeable.

    My problem is- why this is only happening on Desktop- while same Turbo tech on Intel's HEDT represents the actual TDP on full load:
    https://www.anandtech.com/bench/CPU-2019/2194

    On HEDT platform where power and cooling are no problem at all- the TDP is represents the real life power consumption- while on desktop it's only 55% of the actual power usage, and yes- we the tech gurus- we know how it's work- but for average user it's misleading and it's on purpose to make the new Gen look good because Intel manage to bring over double the performance at "same TDP" as 7700K . Pure Marketing stunt - same like their 5GHs 28C Monster CPU!.

    These better be REAL TDP's last thing we want is another 9900K with a fake 95w TDP (real 149w TDP) in an SFF a single rad AIO which can exceed 105C very easy. If you set the 9900K to 95w TDP performance drop is huge runs exactly like Ryzen 2700X.... except it costs 50% more!

    It's no wonder Intel got their board partners to overclock their CPU's to beat Ryzen because at Intels Spec it's not very good.

    Mom... why is our TV on fire? :eek:

    Oh don't worry dear, it's Intel's latest NUC... now cover your ears... Mommy's gonna say a bad word... :mad::mad::confused:#@!

    By then I wouldn't be surprised to see AMD Zen2+ with mainstream CPU 16-cores 32-threads.

    Intel bringing a sword into gun fight. Would be shame if Intel couldn't grasp on gaming numbers.
