Keeps you warm on a cold winters night with its massive power draw
Slower, more power hungry, and more expensive than the CPU it's replacing.
It's awful, what more can you say? That should have just refreshed 10th gen and offered a discount. It would have been much better than this complete waste of time.

-its fast, both single and multi core. its right on par with 10 core 10th gen but with 2 less cores -runs cool with a 360 mm aio at stock speeds, maxed out at 65 celcuis running cinebench -its not amd which is important for some -comaptable with z490 boards, it works perfectly in my z490 msi ace - Pcie gen 4 compatable with most z490 motherboards
overclocking is not as good as i hoped it would be for a binned flagship chip the tvb and abt is pretty much useless its a tad bit pricey for being an 8 core even tho it hangs with the 10 cores performance wise
this cpu got a bad rap right out of the gate. its really a great cpu. i have not had 1 single issue with it at all. i would definately reccommend. i gave 4 stars because i was hoping for a higher overclock out of an i9. i was able to get 5.1 at 1.3 volts, getting to 5.2 was a little more challenging it needed 1.375 volts and started to get very hot at that point
