    Hi,
    Interesting Intel wouldn't do that :)
    Why not? AMD did worse a few years ago. They all do stuff like that.

    A video showing stuff someone made using Blender.
    Wait until it gets to the smoke section, and imagine that was a fluids & particle benchmark
    The GPU would probably explode, as this is actually 4K HDR.

    That's some real talent. My mobile screen went crazy because of HDR. Had to turn brightness to max and remove autobrightness or my screen would blink like a strobo light.

    I'm doing an upgrade for a client and the donor/upgrade machine is a 3Ghz Core 2 Duo with a massive GTX 280. I'm about to install WIndows 10 on a SSD for the new build since the parts are on the way. Anyone curious what the 3D Mark Scores are for this old rig?
    Here is the old rig.

    I figured as much haha. I'll post the scores of the Ryzen 2400G when the build is complete.

    Just so you all understand my reason for wanting the 9900K: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/new...-9th-gen-cpus/
    Well meltdown V3 was addressed purely at the OS level with no perceptible performance impact. So that leaves you with L1T. For L1T, unless you are using Hypervisor, the Windows kernel fixes it with no need for microcode or hardware fixes and no performance hit.

    https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en...sory/adv180018

    All the rest are the same fixes as for Gen 8 processors.

    So that wouldn't be my reason either

    What about the 9700K as an upgrade? Will be interesting to see how that compares to the 8700K.
    Same as the 8700k with 2 more identical cores, no hyper-threading, and less cache/core. So I think the gain of more cores will be pretty much balanced by the loss of hyperthreading + less cache/core - depending on the workload - maybe on average.

    I am anticipating this comparison.

    The 9900k has the same cache/core as the 8870k - they upped the total shared cache from 12 to 16 MB.

    The 9900k is the new 8700k. They moved all the features of the i7 to the i9 with a couple of more cores ad a much bigger price tag. Gotta love Intel - they get you to drool over basically the same thing while screwing you on the $.

    Hi,
    Cores/ cores/ cores $$
    Still not a bad price 8700k has darn good performance so the next should as well

    Pretty wild about the single core boost though
    Thought they would stick with by core as *two best cores* that would turbo :/
