I can't agree with 3 of these 5 points
- High price
- Multi-CCD design costs some performance
- Slightly limited by power/TDP
- CPU cooler not included
- No integrated graphics
$800 is not a bad price, especially when compared to Intel offerings of 16core parts which run at far slower clock speeds;
Intel Core i9 X-Series - Core i9-9960X Skylake X 16-Core 3.1 GHz (4.4 GHz Turbo) LGA 2066 165W BX80673I99960X Desktop Processor - Newegg.com
Buy Intel Core i9 X-Series - Core i9-9960X Skylake X 16-Core 3.1 GHz (4.4 GHz Turbo) LGA 2066 165W BX80673I99960X Desktop Processor with fast shipping and top-rated customer service. Once you know, you Newegg!
No one who buys this CPU is going to use or expect a heatsink. Third party cooling is a given for a product like this.
No one is going to expect an IGP for a product like this, especially when space is a premium on the die area. While an IGP could be useful, most buyers will not care or ever use an IGP.
