    One-year warranty...

    Compatible with existing Z390 motherboards... can't find a sarcasm emoji for that one!

    Wasn't this already announced or just leaked?

    "Mega Tasking" - pfft, marketing buzzwords, love 'em
    "35% more FPS compared to a 3-year old PC" - you know what, I'd love to see a comparison because apart from core count it's the same uArch and most skylake generations can clock to 5GHz anyway

    I'm loving Intel marketing right now, it literally is a child with crayons going "itz duh berst!"

    Up to 35% more frames per second compared with a 3-year-old PC
    Well that's totally underwhelming...

    and only 'up to', so if compared against a 3y/o budget box or something like an atom then it'll only be at most 35% better … I think the wording might be wrong there.

    Re: Intel announces Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor

    I would be worried if it wasn't faster than a 6700K.

    No mention at all as to *why* it is special. No improved thermal interface, no extra + on the 14nm process, so I take it this is just a factory overclocked part from the raised TDP and lowered warranty. We always expected Intel to play to their clock speed strength, but I was expecting more.

    I typed this but PCs using IE as a browser with processors from the Windows Vista era do not make for effective.....anything and it went astray.

    I bet if AMD wasn't Zenning then this chip would be a grand and only do all core 5GHz whilst connected to a fridge.

    There's probably a Terminator 2 meme in there somewhere with Intel's chip being the T1000, the molten steel being Intel's stock cooler and the broken liquid nitrogen tanker being the recommended cooling for optimum performance. You could then take it too far with Arnie being AMD and his bullet to the frozen T1000 being Zen.

    Now this time, I'll copy the post, ready to paste again when it loses it. Which is manipulating sod's law into making it work this time.

    Re: Intel announces Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor

    Considering the new TDP that just sounds like a chip that's been binned and pre-overclocked

    Kyle says that's all it is, yep. It's still a good ploy by Intel to pander to the enthusiast market, who are going to be leaving them for 16 core Ryzens in their immediate future. How many 1151 platforms will there be now, four? My B350 can run a 16 core Ryzen 3 today.

    Re: Intel announces Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor

    so its at edge of process tech, ramped up best of the best chips... that hold on barely in that J bit of the curve where power usage gets you barely any more speed.

    basically. golden samples you pay top dollar for in order to have some bragging rights.

    Sigh. rather sad. Come back in 2022 intel. when you have your process tech under control. And a better designed spectre proof chip.

    Is legal to sell a product with less than 2 years guaranty?

    I think that your statutory warranty (actually 6 years under UK law, little known fact) excludes 'wear and tear', and I'd imagine that the death of a CPU that looks designed to rapidly cook itself might be considered wear and tear...
