Ever since we taught fancy rocks to think, despite the decades of research and billions of dollars that go into creating grand pyramid-scale structures at the nanoscale, it still is very much an imperfect process. The tiny nibs of shiny silicon that come...
Cheaper than Core i9-10900K, but with similar gaming performance, Strong in both single- and multi-threaded applications,
Power consumption, Thermal output and cooling requirements, PCIe 3.0 interface, Little overclocking headroom
The Intel Core i9-10850K retails for $500 on Newegg, who are price gouging like on all their other Comet Lake CPUs. In Europe, where supply is much better and competition healthier, we got our sample for €445 (including 16% VAT), which converts to $450 (...
Gaming performance as good as Core i9-10900K, Multiplier unlocked, Same 10c/20t design as Core i9-10900K with 20 MB cache, only 100 MHz lower clocks, Faster than Core i9-10900K in some multi-threaded tests, Temperatures improved, Much more energy efficien...
Power throttling, Reaches highest multipliers only rarely, Overclocking barely worth it, CPU cooler not included, No support for PCIe Gen 4
