Since our thermal and power consumption numbers are very different from other publications, here's some clarification on our board settings: -Multi-core enhancement: Disabled -SVID behavior: "Intel Fail-Safe" / Intel's default -XMP: Enabled -All power duration and limit settings default -Core multiplier at defaults -Core voltages at defaults Cooler: Corsair H115i w/IC Graphite thermal pads The performance numbers we got were double-checked against Intel's engineers, and they were in line; This suggests that our thermal tests are indicative of stock performance (with motherboard vendor optimizations disabled). We did *not* ask Intel about their thermal or power consumption results.

Which processor would you recommend, the i9 9900k or the i7 9700K?

also when you say gamers , do you mean arcade gamers or actual gamers ,we need hard disk performance on open world games and fast ram for streaming in stuff , FPS is ok , but i would prefer 40-50FPS and no stutter . . people should now be looking at the working of a game . 1 stutter is 0 fps ., clearly i can see intel works nicer on games with less stutter, check out games like Rust , dayz , star citizen ECT ECT actual pc gamers not console ports , siege , csgo , battlefields , cods , do not count

I stole a pc from a prison in Saturn that holds the most dangerous criminals of all time. I was sentenced to 10 months in the prison of Saturn for killing 10,000 people from a bombing in Zimbabwe. I was supposed to be sentenced to death but they decided to give me a punishment that far exceeds a death penalty. They decided to send me to Saturn in their newly developed spaceship for prisoners. They also sent a bunch of strippers to Saturn to build a secured prison for me and my other bomb buddies. The reason why this exceeded the death penalty is because the ship was being worked on and it's supposed to take you to Saturn in 40 minutes. We could of died while being in chains in an unknown spaceship but luckily, the spaceship didn't malfunctuon. They had a beta version of the ship I was in and they used it to send the strippers, it took the strippers 4 years to get to mars instead of 40 minutes. Anyways, I served my time in the prison of Saturn and the prison was like an ordinary prison but the ceiling were higher in the cells because of the higher gravitational pull. After I served my time, I was destined to be sent back to earth but when the guard went to grab my belongings. I stole a pc from his desk. I felt really bad because when i used my psychic abilities, I found out that this pc was robbed from an innocent Saturn inhabitant who was held hostage for the pc and killed anyway. The pc was small so i hid it in my ass until I arrived in earth. Without any hesitation, the cops escorted me to my mansion and they stated, "Since you survived, you're going to serve 5 years of house arrest". I then pulled out the pc from my ass and plugged it in to my moniter. It was running a firmware know as , "saturnwoaidjsi 20.2". I then tweaked it to run Windows 10 and I downloaded the latest gears of war game and i got 100,230 fps at 14k resolution which is basically vr without a headset. I was astonished and I knew I had to share this discovery with youtube.

Where do we go from here, now that all of the core counts keep goin up, and how do we spend our lives, knowing there's no one to lend us a CPU fan? The cache is not sane, you take it or you leave it. Things people say just don't make it right. If I promised you the cooler and DDR would you receive it? Games people play with their expensive core i9

Wanna hear a joke? 'i9-9900k is the best *gaming* processor' You may not be happy that i7 has no hyperthreading but as you saw that technology isn't always good in games.

Yesterday I just read an article stating by some source that AMD has somewhere in the area of an 85% market share of CPU sales right now (someone correct me if I'm misqualifying the metric I'm using). Videos like this, from a year ago, show us why. A year ago I bought an Intel i9 powered laptop. I've purchased Intel chips my entire life. I've always known of AMD but never gave them a chance. A couple months ago at my company Christmas party was the first time I heard people talk about these "Ryzen" processors, and I didn't really have a frigging clue what they were going on about. A few weeks back and I just built my new desktop computer, powered by a Ryzen 3900. Intel: you really fucked up. You got cocky. You thought you could run your business on reputation and brand alone. I did some quick simple research and it was clear from space that modern AMD processors are far more powerful for a much better price. Really easy purchase. You messed up bad, Intel.

I’m thinking that the cores that are normally parked become unparked when buying this, so if you run thio joe’s “double cpu speed” video, that would essentially be what intel did with this cpu. (But what do I know?)

I have a ryzen 5 1600. Overclocked to 3.9ghz with stock cooler. Pared with a rtx 2070 super and I keep more fps than my bank account
DaveDuzzit 4 ヶ月 前
Don't forget that serious gamers (the ones who would dish out $500+) are going to overclock that 9900k to 5ghz, which is not happening on the 2700x. Just getting to 4.2ghz with the 2700x pushes over 1.4v and gets super hot. Games need frames, and cpu clock is a huge factor in that area, as most games don't use 8 cores. So while a 8700k will basically give you the similar performance with a 5ghz overclock in most games, the thermals are not so good, and crashing is an issue. It's a worth while upgrade if you care to get the highest frame rate.
DaveDuzzit ヶ月 前
​@Accidentlly0nPurpose Of course I have, that kinda defeats the purpose in price if your asking me. It's a great processor don't get me wrong, but it's more for light workstations, and is $250 more. Contrary to what most think is possible, I have my 9900k running at 5.1ghz ~200w TDP, 4266mhz RAM at with timings tightened to CL16, and it still maxes at 80c under full load with liquid metal. It's won't beat you in benchmarks, but at 30-35% usage in most games, the speed will beat you in fraps with the same GPU until some game dev decides to make a game that maxes out the capabilities of this CPU, and utilizes more than 8c16t.

Just upgraded my motherboard to an Aorus Z390 pro wifi, my cpu to an i7 9700k ($489 boxing day sale in Canada) and ram to corsair vengeance lpx 3000mhz 16 gb and honestly, I went there to buy the i9 9900k but the price just killed it for me. The i9 was literally $200 more on sale at $689 so I decided, because I don't stream or do video editing, the latest generation i7 processor should be MORE than enough. Turns out I was right, I previously had an MSI Radeon RX 580 8gb and I decided to keep it for a bit longer and just overclock it for better performance and ohhhh boy, my rig shreds Gears 5, Hellblade, and Outer worlds with ease. Even gives killer scores in cinebench. Overall, I am really happy with my new PC build, considering my previous cpu was an i7 875k
