This Cpu runs at very high speeds and doesn't slow down. It is a great Cpu for gaming and is alike to the i9 9900k.

Based on specifications, this CPU is more inline with i9-9900 but lacking some features such as Thermal Velocity Boost, has lower base clock and boost clock. Also this CPU is currently ~$100 cheaper than i9-9900 which makes this a better value proposition than the aforementioned CPU. Performance wise, this CPU is ahead of i9-9900 currently.

My current PC CPU. I will keep this CPU for at least 3 years. Impressive muti-tasking performance. Much better then what I expected.

Great processor that is outshone by the 10900 and undercut in price by the cheaper 10600. An excellent product, but is it worth the price?

It's a great CPU for gaming. K chips are pointless unless you are trying to get the big numbers on a benchmark. For practical daily use locked processors work fine.

not a big difference to the K version and uses half the power
