"A socket a year keeps the goyim in fear" as they say....same ish, different smell, just more 14nm+++++++++ rehashing, the top model SKU will get trounced by the 3950X in productivity, and it'll be even more of a house-fire than the 9900 kelvin fried chicken, and make its "105" TPD look like a joke as usual.
Absolutely zero reason to go this over a 9 series Intel offering if all you are interested in is 1080p/240hz gaming or 4K/144Hz+ (Not that any company has any product offerings that are adequately up to that task yet), and absolutely zero reason to get these if you are interested in any sort of productivity that doesn't involve AVX512.
But you watch, the "Tech-Journalists" and media outlet's will climb their pedestals and crow at the top of their lungs on how amazing these are, NPC drones will flock to it, replace their perfectly adequate current Intel set-ups, or choose one of these over a Ryzen 2 for productivity related workloads, and then rinse and repeat the next year when the next rehash and socket comes out, ad-infinitum...It's getting pretty old and stale at this point Intel, some one wake me up when Ocean Cove leaks, as Intel is currently dead to me, until they sort out their myriad of security issues, their BS pricing, and actually improve in IPC significantly (And don't parrot that +18% IPC Sunny Cove BS, it was in a vacuum with no security mitigations in place, as stated by the fine-print on the marketing slide).
