So S for speed-binned then.
Is this Intel nobbling the Silicon Lottery by creaming off the high clockers?
They need to fill that "£500" price slot somehow, now that 9900K got it's price dropped...
As a 9900K owner the only thing that would tempt me to sell it and replace it with one of these would be if it was shown that voltages to keep these binned 'KS' 5GHZ chips are significantly lower than the 1.35 it takes mine to do it. They'd ALL have to be in the 1.25 to 1.28 range for me to even consider it, voltages like that could knock a good 10-15c off the 1.35vlt temps at load.
Sounds like an i7-8086K redux.
