Top-of-the-line optical sensor, fully ambidextrous form factor, an extra wide scroll wheel for maximum comfort and, of course, RGB lighting—270 degrees around the mouse. All this without software! These are the main features of the AZIO ATOM. However, the devil is in the details.

Intel Core i9-9900K Processor Review
     Mon, Nov 12 2018 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With AMD’s second generation Ryzen launch we saw the Ryzen 7 2700X take the top spot ahead of Intel’s Core i7-8700K in terms of overall performance. Intel still had stronger performance in games, but the Ryzen 7 2700X was very attractive to not just gamers, but creators, designers, etc. With 8-cores and 16-threads it really is a great processor. Now it is time for Intel to strike back and today we have probably the most anticipated Intel product of the year, the Core i9-9900K. This is Intel’s first 8-core, 16-thread mainstream processor, packing in clock speeds of 3.6 GHz base and a single-core turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz. Intel calls the Core i9-9900K the world’s best processor for gaming and today we are going to see if that is true and how it stacks up against other processors out there."

Intel 9th Generation Core i9 9900K
     Sun, Nov 11 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The one big disappointment I had was that when it came to overclocking this sample tapped out at just 50Mhz over the single core Turbo Boost 2.0 max clock speed of 5Ghz. Yeah right! Disappointment at a legit 5+Ghz all core clock speed sounds a little jaded I know but I was hoping for more. No matter the voltage or configuation of of bclock and multplier would get the Core i9 9900K over the 5050Mhz barrier with any sort of stability. I could boot and run short tests at 5200Mhz using 1.4v. With this voltage applied throttling was not far off. Nor were crashes and instability.”

Intel Core I9 9900k Processor Review
     Sun, Nov 11 2018 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the inception of the Core Series of processors, the I7 was the flagship of Intel's line of desktop processors. Since the first generation, the top tier I7 was always a quad core chip with hyper-threading. That was until June 2017 when the rumors floating around Redit and forums everywhere became a reality with the release of the first Core …

Intel i9-9900K @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Nov 11 2018 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a week and a half ago Intel gathered up a lot of the press and live streamed the introduction of their new 9000 series of CPUs as well as new Core-X CPUs. They also brought out details on the 28 core CPU that they teased earlier this year. We had a chance to dive into the details and then check out the new CPUs being used in a variety of demos including some overclocking demos showing off their new soldered TIM. By now I’m guessing most of you have seen some of those details but today I’m going to run through what Intel introduced and then after that I’m going to put the new i9-9900K through our tests and see how the new 8 core CPU performs. It’s been a busy month for big launches and this one has been a long time coming, I can’t wait to see how it performs compared to the growing competition from AMD so let's get into it!

Intel Core i7-9700K
     Sat, Nov 10 2018 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Core i7-9700K comes with eight cores, but lacks HyperThreading. In our testing it still conclusively beats the 6-core/12-thread Core i7-8700K. The much more expensive Core i9-9900K is also under heavy attack: it seems that Core i7-9700K actually is the better gaming CPU.

The Performance & Power Efficiency Of The Core i7 990X
     Sat, Nov 10 2018 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With my initial Core i9 9900K benchmarks out there following Friday's embargo expiration, for some weekend benchmarking fun I decided to pull out the old Core i7 990X to see how it compares to the new 9900K... The Gulftown and Coffeelake processors were compared not only on raw performance but also overall power consumption and performance-per-Watt."
