    Damn you. I clicked on the article purely to make that joke.

    EDIT: Now I've read the article, I am getting more frustrated with these stupid naming "conventions". You can not make out this is comparable to a desktop chip of a purposefully similar name. The base clock is down by 1/3rd! There'll be a turbo but that Tau value will be very short due to the thermal constraints of the chassis. Unless you do some really deep research so you know what you're dealing with before purchase, you're gonna feel conned.

    Of course you can. They have the same core, thread and cache topology as the other chips that share the model number. The T/K/KF/etc suffixes indicate which variant of the chip you're buying.

    It's no more confusing than calling all the cars of one model the same name but differentiating them by trim and engine size.

    In isolation, yes. But combine it with the rest of Intel's products and it quickly becomes a minefield.

    Also, cars tend to be a LOT clearer. You usually have the engine size by the name. This differentiates a massive performance difference using the letter "T". And then we have "F" and "K" and god only knows what else. A car would have [Make][Model][Engine size][Trim] all as part of the name you get when you're buying. You'd know immediately if you were buying a 2 litre or 1 litre car because it's in the name. This is absolutely the same as making a car that looks the same, with the same model name and then hiding the engine size variants, whether it has automatic or manual transmission and so on with a load of different accronyms that require looking up rather than being plain to see. I would also argue that a long distance cruiser which has a tiny engine can not be considered in the same light as a similarly specced car which has one 50% bigger. They are very different propositions. a 2GHz chip is a very different proposition to a 3GHz chip. Similar core be damned, certain use cases are going to seriously suffer whereas others won't notice the difference.

    You and I know what all this stuff means because we take an active interest but, for the casual punter, it's going to be incredibly confusing and evidently purposefully so. Otherwise they'd just stick the core speed in the name or make the naming conventions reflect it somehow.

    UPDATE:

    A listing by UK retailer Kikatek suggests that the "Core i9-9900T 2.10GHz" will be released on 15th May. It is priced at £454.63 on this site.

    See, if you were being really cynical you could suggest they wanted to get the specs and names out there seperate from the obviously business-grade inflated pricing. As is, Hexus had to update and shoehorn a single price in as a footnote, and some sites won't do that..

    But you'd have to be very cynical.
