you know read de rules of product USE? if you do not respect it you are wrong user to INTEL.
A simple "no" would have sufficed.

Benchmark Scores Faster than yours... I'd bet on it. :)
Base spec without xmp enabled.
max spec for the platform is 2933.

Anything above this is considered overlooking the IMC, indeed.

As far as the warranty, Intel offers an additional warranty that includes overlooking. So if you feel bad about overlooking the imc (you shouldn't), get the additional coverage and go to town.

You really don't know how to read specifications bro? 2666 for Core i3 / i5, 2933 i7 / i9 platform and warranty only if you overpay(you shouldn't HAHAHA), it is already charged when buying a "K" CPU.

-Bring valid arguments and stop being FANBOY!!!

The 10600K has already proven itself as more than capable, then along come Intel with their dodgy as hell marketing trying to upsell.

Couldn't agree more. To me anyway, that slide makes it sound like if you don't buy the i9 strictly for gaming, then you must be peasant even though the 10700K and 10600K would be just as good and you'd save some money (on the CPU purchase at least). Like, if you use your rig mostly for gaming (not considering other everyday average user tasks like web browsing, watching videos, etc. because even a potato could do those, quite frankly) and you either have no use/budget for an i9 or even i7 and don't want to go AMD for whatever reason (it happens people. Get over it) then there's nothing wrong with going with the 10600K. If it's what you can afford, it's what you can afford. Nothing wrong with that.

I don't read it that way. The i5 has Seamless AAA gaming checked off... just not competitive gaming. You do get peak performance with the faster cpu.. is the difference big? No... but I don't think it infers pleb status either. :)

Still 14nm and High power draw compared to a 8700k or 3600 and you need a new board to run it.
So.....no.

Sounds like a fine cpu if it could benefit from 7nm

1% lows in game benchmarks please... Especially when you post catching titles like "All you need for gaming".

On a modern Win10 based bench 1% lows are pointless, since Win10 is still plagued with bizzare DPC issues and the entire WDDM is hot garbage on top of it all.

As for the 10600k, it's a perfect tweaker/OC'er chip. For the average person building an ultimate top fps gaming machine without too much tinkering or OC knowldege a 10900k makes sense. I literally got a 9600k vs 9900k from MicroCenter along with a OC friendly Z390 Aorus Master because the first thing I would have done with a 9900k is disabled the HT (or SMT, as I do on all my pure gaming machines) and probably dropped a core or two to help along with the heat (something I did on a voltage hungry Ryzen gaming machine), ending up with a 9600k anyway.

If I was a "newbie" to OC ing or just didn't care or even never entered a BIOS or UEFI in my life (like many newcomers these days, who wouldn't even know how to disable HT with a Youtube instructional video holding their hand) then 9900k/10900k makes sense. Otherwise, 10600k is probably the best gaming chip you can get now.
