    Same tech, same process node,
    New socket and much higher tdp.
    Hope Intel is chucking a liquid auto cooler to chill those temps for these mini radiators.

    Some 10900K news..
    Different motherboard same result: Intel Core i9-10900K chip's latest Geekbench multi-core score still can't surpass AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X - https://www.notebookcheck.net/Diffe...n-t-surpass-AMD-s-Ryzen-9-3900X.460758.0.html
    Intel Core i9-10900K benchmarks have leaked, and it's still slower than the Ryzen 9 3900X - https://www.techradar.com/au/news/i...d-and-its-still-slower-than-the-ryzen-9-3900x
    Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake Desktop CPU Prices Revealed – Core i9-10900 With 10 Cores For Under $500 US, Core i7-10700K For $400 US, Core i7-10700 For $350 US - https://wccftech.com/intel-10th-gen...ore-i9-10900-core-i7-10700-cpu-prices-leaked/

    10900K's not gonna beat 3900X in productivity(10c/20t vs 12c/24t), but should still be the fastest gaming processor(now with 2 extra cores), not including 9900KS(?).
    & Hopefully 10700K/10900K can overclock to 5.2+GHz easily(on all cores) thanks to 14+++++nm. :upset:

    At least pricing is good according to WTF-Tech.. :shock:
    Intel Core i9-10900 10 Core / 20 Thread CPU ($679 CAD / $487 USD)
    Intel Core i7-10700K 8 Core / 16 Thread CPU ($585 CAD / $419 USD)
    Intel Core i7-10700 8 Core / 16 Thread CPU ($506 CAD / $363 USD)

    Current newegg prices:
    Intel Core i9-9900K 8 Core / 16 Thread CPU ($505 USD)
    Intel Core i7-9700K 8 Core / 8 Thread CPU ($380 USD)
    Intel Core i9-10900X 10 Core / 20 Thread CPU ($780 USD)

    But I'm not sure if that's correct cos 10900K is ~$500 USD according to WTF-Tech($280 USD cheaper than 10900X).

    i7 10700K also looks good.. extra L3 cache and slightly faster than i9 9900K but also ~$90 USD cheaper :thumbup:
    (but higher TDP & also require new Z490 mobo)

    From here https://www.techspot.com/news/84805-high-end-intel-10th-gen-desktop-cpus-power.html

    Thats stock - imagine how much it will suck down when overclocking. That is a metric fuktun of heat to deal with.

    As always though Intels TDP is only 125w as shown here; https://videocardz.com/newz/intel-c...k-and-core-i5-10600k-marketing-materials-leak

    Please consume with more than a lick of salt......

    Intel is AMD and AMD is Intel

    Too bad the massive marketing machine / pre-built Dell/HP/Lenovo market is immune to this BS

    no one should be buying intel's new comet lake. I think they called it that for a reason. Coffee
    Lake refresh is a stretch as it is.

    Taobao has retail chips of the 10400 up for sale already. 6C12T clocked at 2.9-4.3GHz, ~280AUD/170USD. Given that it's a pre-release leak, I would expect launch price to be lower, and the F version to be cheaper still.

    Depends, Taobao normally has the cheapest Intel OEM tray CPUs out there so I expect Intel retail units to be about 10% more than the Taobao OEM tray unit pricing. I expect the F version is around 240AUD while the non F is around 320AUD considering the 9th gen pricing and I doubt Intel will do much price change considering Intel can just manipulate its price by announcing supply shortage :sick:

    Why not? I don't think anyone expected it to beat AMD multi core performance. But it'll surely still be gaming king.

    I couldn't care less about 3900x - my current OC'd 8700k would be spanking it at games already. Yes, 5-10fps (more in some games) is a spanking in my mind. It's been a few years now, I'm ready for an upgrade and my criteria looks like this:
    1. Best gaming CPU
    2. Price < $1500
    3. Reasonable performance increase over current 8700k

    I'm assuming 1 and 2 will be met, just waiting on reviews to see if 3 is enough to justify purchase :)

    This thread is about 10900k etc. It's not a HEDT part. As far as I'm aware, no 10900k reviews exist yet. (not interested in questionable leaks)

    10 cores and up is getting into a grey area. perhaps a new segment is called for, maybe proto HEDT? or Enthusiast+? Who knows.

    Sure, the same segment 3900x and 3950x fall in. Except for gaming, the Intel should spank them. Note the should - still waiting on reviews obviously. My point was, it's silly to be saying 'no one should be buying comet lake'. Assuming they retain the gaming crown, there is certainly a market segment for 'best gaming cpu ignoring all else'.

    Who knows, maybe it'll be worse than 9900k, then I'll wait another round and see who's on top next :)

    not sure what you're getting at here, are you saying the equivalently priced Intel parts will be on par with AMD parts in gaming and be better at everything else? Or is it vice versa?
