Intel's 10-core i9-10850K is now available to order in the UK

Is the extra 100MHz worth the extra £70?



Read more about Intel's i9-10850K being available to purchase in the UK.

This is the actual 10900K and the 10900K we got is the KS model. They just released CPUs the other way around. KS first then regular K now with 10850K. Intel just needed the biggest gun to lead the way.

You think that, but they are releasing a KA model soon, although no details have been mentioned surrounding what KA is.

So they can't keep a 10900k in stock and they are now releasing another sku? If Intel has not claimed yield issues on the 10900k, I would think this confirms it.

I think this is to add more availability to their products. There may well have been a few 10900's that simple could not maintain those clock speeds but function in all other fashions as a 10900k. Makes sense, saves Intel money, saves e-waste, offers something in the same ball park in performance.
Once the wafer is cut if it doesn't meet the criteria for a 10900k they might have relegated these to i7's or i5's previously when really should they be simply because they can't keep up with intels ludicrous clocks they need to stay as "the best gaming CPU's" and show progress
