Taken from: Wccftech on Intel's 10th Gen Core i9-10900K and it's naming is gonna be confusing due to entering 10th naming. Please take this with a grind of salt as always.

Starting with the details, there seem to be 11 initial Core SKUs that will be offered to the masses. The Xeon, Pentium and Celeron chips are also missing from this list but let's just focus on the chips that have been detailed in the slides. There are three unlocked SKUs with 125W TDP and eight 65W TDP CPUs.

What does everyone think of this? Worth a buy, or is this a solid skip for most on here? I'd imagine it would be a pain to cool properly. I'm still going to stay with Ryzen family and still loving my 2700X as we speak. I skip Ryzen 3000 series and will wait for 4000 Ryzen series to kick in.

Well, there is a 17% IPC increase for ryzen 4000. This intel chip wants to surpass X299 heat output apparantly.

Just bought an AMD 3700X which is the most I've spent on a processor by about double (no regrets, it was just a splurge).

I won't be looking at any new chips for a while now, both because I don't need one but also to prevent buyer's remorse haha.

Still, it's nice to see some honest competition now. AMD is doing well, Intel needs to respond...either way, we all win.

We already knew Intel was stuck at 14nm, just adding cores and pushing clocks for the past 3 generations. So the numbers on the picture make perfect sense. Including the bs TDP ratings :). I'm sure their performance won't disappoint, but knowing Intel I think they'll ask for more money than they're worth.

Meh CPU's are boring, I want to see the GPU they are working on.

For gaming purposes a 6 cores 12 threads is all that matters and at 4K IPC doesn't mean anything so even a 1600 to a 3950X will offer no performance boost.

I heard rumours that the GPU will be modular like a weird hybrid sli/crossfire type of tech or something. Who knows I'm a little drunk.

I am good for a while on the CPU front. Hopefully they at least bring out their 10nm soon though. It's just sad at this point.
