Although I seem to remember reading here that the i9-10900x was a lousy CPU?
Aren't Intel's HEDT SKU's always a generation(or should I say - a refresh or two) behind the mainstream ones? If I recall correctly the HEDT are simply unlocked Xeons, having a higher memory latency for example.
I've went through the lineup 7920, 7980xe, 9940x and to me they're all 'lousy' because of their power draw and temperature delta between cores.
