Intel's commissioned i9-9900K gaming benchmarks are reportedly misleading

AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X is incorrectly configured during these tests.



Read more about reports that Intel's i9-9900K Gaming benchmarks are inaccurate.

I know this whole thing may be made up... but I really wouldn't put it past Intel to do this.

It's not made up. They have covered their asses saying it is a paid for advert basically.

I know that Aus guy said he would not break NDA but I damn well would. Mainly to stop the flow of BS before it really does fool people into buying too early.

Every one knows how they are going to perform any way. Same old sh*t, different core count.

Misleading is just a cute way of saying fraud. Intel committed fraud again.

You obs haven't lived in the USA....

Seriously the call centre I used to work at was pure 100% bs. They used to scare old people into buying something for bird flu (just some vitamins) and etc. It almost destroyed my soul working there.

Karma's a bitch though, and recently she (my old boss) finally stepped over the mark and got slapped with a $5.5m fine.

That's the sad thing about the US, Everything is about money and that's not a healthy way to live.

Actually it was $6.5m. I have no idea how she intends to pay it, as I don't think she is worth that much. If she is? then IDK why she lived in crappy Sewell NJ.

BTW I know most of you are probably thinking "what does this have to do with anything?" well read this..

And note - Dietary supplement marketers.

So in this instance? these fools getting paid to put out these BS reviews? they will be held accountable, not Intel. Intel can just blame it all on them and walk away scott free.

Update. Apparently the 2700X was ran with ThreadRipper's 'Game Mode' enabled disabling one CCX essentially running it as a Quad Core

Just came to post this. I think I'm giving up on Intel. At this stage they are an abhorrent company. I said this on Facebook on Hardware Unboxed' post, I'm not an anti-establishment person. I trust that people can do good things. But Intel have repeatedly proven they are not a company I want to support.
