- On a platform with modern features unavailable to your 9900K
Instead of being salty, embrace the advancement and acknowledge your 9900K is a 14nm relic and a space heater to boot
Haters gonna hate and fanboys always deny the truth.
Skylake v4 is still just the same base product, highly strung with the "impossible" and "entirely pointless" extra cores/threads now made available.
It is indeed a 14nm relic. And it does indeed occupy the role of a space heater in colder climates.
But Intel made it, so people will rushed out to buy it regardless.
