This seems like a hyperbolic statement to me. They would be DOA if they were an FX 9590 situation where they used tons of power, were mega hot and crucially were still far from competitive. The 10700K is reasonably cool, reasonably power efficient and has very competitive performance, beating the AMD equivalent handily in many cases. As I haven't bought a new Intel chip since 2014 I am tempted to pull the trigger on one of these, if/when they are in stock for a reasonable price, ie. not the current inflated price due to shortages.
Buying Intel 10th generation is a bad idea....
10th generation is extremely short-lived with 8 to 9 months life only.
Even if you could hold out until January 2021 (7 months from now) and pick up Intel 11th gen Rocket Lake with Willow Cove cores design update "25%" IPC Gain over 10th generation (SkyLake) architecture and 11th gen has PCIe 4.0 working! Your all around better off than buying garbage 10th generation.
The only thing that Intel 10th generation is good for is Intel will use 10th generation as their benchmarks for their future CPUs generations as a baseline for performance.
Willow Cove is 25% IPC Gain over 10th Gen... Rocket Lake (14nm++)
Golden Cove is 50% IPC Gain over 10th Gen... Alder Lake (10nm++)
Ocean Cove is over 80% IPC Gain over 10th Gen... Meteor Lake (7nm+)
And so on....
Major changes are coming soon....you're better off with 11th gen Rocket Lake only months away.
