Intel 10th Gen "Comet Lake-S" Desktop CPU Availability and Review NDA Pushed to Almost-June

Intel has reportedly split the launch of its upcoming 10th generation Core "Comet Lake-S" processor into two unusually distant dates, April 30 and May 27, 2020. It was earlier believed that the processors would be announced on April 30, with availability "shortly after," (read: within 10-14 days of launch). According to a WCCFTech report, the launch is planned such that April 30 will only see product announcements - the processors themselves, motherboards based on Intel 400-series chipset, and OEM desktops based on the platform. Later on May 29, the processors, desktops based on them, and DIY motherboards, are expected to be available in the retail channel. May 27 will also be the date when reviews of the processors and motherboards go live.

I have to say that I really really REALLY look forward to those reviews. You don't see DOA products from Intel very often. DOA in retail market I mean, OEMs will just grab anything that comes out from Intel factories.

Don't want to upset you, but there is no way 10900K(F) will be DOA.
Right now, plenty of people buying 9900k over AMD for high refresh 144/240hz gaming. 9900k is a great product for it's purpose. And 10900K can only be better than 9900k

if you wanna see real DOA product, check 10900X

But who is going to upgrade from a 9900k to a 10900k when most of the leaked benchmarks have it barely beating a 9900k and still can't beat a 3900x?
Plus then also adding actually have good thermals seeing as it runs even hotter than a 9900k, this 10 series CPU is just a filler honestly, trying to push something out to seem competitive still, when in fact its just rehashed 9 series with extra power

Will have to wait & see, DoA might be technically inaccurate though with the upcoming great depression I'm pretty sure gamers dying to upgrade to a 10xxx will be super rare at least initially!

It's not meant to make you upgrade from 9900k. Upgrading after just one generation is for enthusiasts only (even then it's iffy imho, but to each their own). Not a big enough segment to matter.
You would upgrade from Skylake (and earlier). And if until now you were eyeing a 9900k, soon you will have a better choice.

It's sad when no one really cares.

Unless these things come out at half price it's not going to be worth buying. They're the same chips we've had for 4 years already with just added cores and a few minor tweaks.
