These guys need to work on a new naming scheme. 5 numbers plus a letter (and eventually 2) is silly and confusing, especially with already 3 different 10-series products out there.
Get ready for more reports of how great 720p gaming will be on these bad boys, for $600+
Yep, Intel should have gone the standard route of renaming the whole product line when they got to 10 like AMD and Nvidia tend to do. At the very least they should have replaced the 10 with an X. A 10900K doesnt sound as good an an X900K
Also AMD has 17% IPC lead for Zen 3 over Zen 2? That sound abit too good to be true imho, but would be a breakthrough again if that is really the case!
The rumors I have heard is that FPU is up to 50% faster, and ALU is up to 15% faster, for an average IPC increase of 17%. I have also heard that some applications or workloads will only see an 8% increase in IPC... perhaps memory throughput heavy workloads or ones that are sensitivity to cache latency. Even at 8%, Intel would retain a lead for gaming, but only by a trivial amount.
