    Regarding this - How are they allowed to legally have that on their marketing poster? It's quite obviously a massive lie.

    They could argue it's Intels worlds first mainstream and probably get away with it. I mean, they got away with the "28 core at 5GHz will be mainstream bs" quite easily.

    Officially, what they've said is totally wrong but, it depends what mainstream means. If mainstream is the majority market share then Intel is correct. They're still massive wangs to me for saying that though.

    Re: Intel claims Core i9 9900K is the “best gaming processor”

    In the livestream the presenter said Intel broke the laws of physics to bring you the 9900K.

    Scan are selling this for £599.99, what a complete ripoff when compared with $488 launch price by Intel.

    Mind you, it would be worth working out how many minutes/hours this CPU would save in a year, if it's saving me hundreds of hours then a few hundred pounds extra is nothing compared with my hourly rate.

    If that's your market, then you should already be using a Xeon with ECC ram because a flaky computer can cost you days. Or any non-apu Ryzen which also allow ECC.

    Re: Intel claims Core i9 9900K is the “best gaming processor”

    Scan are actually selling it at £500 - plus 20% VAT - the Intel launch price does not include sales tax.

    That said, $488 is around £375 - so still a big price hike although part of that may be import duty.

    It isn't really a thought process here, but when you can buy the 2700X plus a high end X470 mobo for LESS than the price of the i9 9900k, Intel can quite honestly forget it. As a gamer myself, there are limits to what I'm willing to pay for in terms of price / performance ratios, especially when the CPU doesn't tend to be the bottleneck. If (and it's a mighty big if) I needed more cores, I wouldn't even look at this, I'd be looking at Threadripper.

    So who exactly are they trying to market this at? Also, does this architecture still have the flaws for Spectre and Meltdown or is it just microcode patched?

    What is the difference between 8600k and 9600k?

    The latter looks to be a salvaged 8 core and uses solder like the Ryzen CPUs do.

    Apparently not:

    https://www.anandtech.com/show/13401...0k-9700k-9600k

    What makes this a little different are the eight-core products. In order to make these, Intel had to create new die masks for the manufacturing line, as their previous masks only went up to six cores (and before that, four cores). This would, theoretically, give Intel a chance to implement some of the hardware mitigations for Spectre/Meltdown. As of the time of writing, we have not been given any indication that this is the case, perhaps due to the core design being essentially a variant of Skylake in a new processor. We will have to wait until a new microarchitecture comes to the forefront to see any changes.

    Yeah, I genuinely don't get that - as with most 'creative' marketing it just looks weak. If you have to lie in order to find something positive to say about your product then...what conclusion can people draw? I'm not too bothered about them 'getting away with it', to my mind it's already an own goal.

    And it's not like this can be to fool anyone who won't know better - it's a presentation that surely will only ever be seen by technology enthusiasts.

    Where are you getting this info from? The link on this page says £599.99. If it's £500 then it's nearer the £448 using online exchange + 20%.

    So we're still on a Skylake refresh then. Wow.

    Re: Intel claims Core i9 9900K is the “best gaming processor”

    I am absolutely NOT an expert on CPU dies.

    actually, it looks like Intel could technically be correct if the 9900K is a monolithic die, as according to Anandtech[1] the Ryzen 7 is made of two linked CCX (CPU Complex), each of which is essentially a 4core/8thread CPU.
    so if the 9900k is a single die, then yes Intel is correct it is the worlds first Consumer 8core/16thread CPU.
    please correct me if I'm wrong.
