The sad thing is that Intel could have turned these defective dies into a nice little PR campaign for themselves by marketing them as the affordable 9900K while also recouping the losses they would've had to eat in just throwing them away. Instead, Intel predictably price-gouges as always and provides less features for the same (if not more) $$$. The 9900K already has an obscene amount of profit baked in as it is, yet they can't bring themselves to price these defective chips just a LITTLE lower than the $500+ that the fully-featured 9900K sells for??? I can't think of a single logical reason that anyone would ever buy one of these unless they simply can't find any 9900K's in stock and are totally set on that specific processor.
