No where on their site do they advertise 4.7Ghz all core boost. None of the slides when they announced the 9900K show any mention of a 4.7Ghz all core boost CPU.
They advertise a 5Ghz turbo boost on a single core which still happens when MCE is disabled. For example my 9900K is running in a z170 board, it never touches 4.7Ghz all core boost at stock settings with MCE disabled. I do see 5Ghz boost during single core workloads. At the end of the day the 9900k has 4 more cores than a 6700k and uses less power at the same frequency.
