I upgraded from a Haswell 4790k. I had no idea what I had been missing out on. This CPU is amazing!!

Got mine on Black Friday for about $344 from a combo deal with a motherboard (Maximus 12 hero) that price for a current gen i9 cpu is definitely worth it even if you don't need the extra cores.—Dec '20

Great CPU. Bought this to heat my room during the winter. For gaming, i use my 5800x now, (with PBO) its as fast as my 10850k at 5.3ghz. Rocket lake will be coming in 2021, and will require as much as 300w to match AMD ipc, but may be worth it if it beats AMD handily.

The Intel Core i9-10850K is one of the best valued high-end CPUs from Intel in the past few years. Essentially, the 10850K is a worse binned 10900K, meaning that it may be a hundred or two megahertz slower than the 10900K and may not overclock as well as a standard 10900K. Otherwise, the 10850K is nearly identical to the 10900K. The 10850K is a very strong gaming and workstation CPU. With a sub-$400 price-tag, the 10850K has a similar pricing to the Ryzen 7 5800X. Gamers who want the faster overall gaming performance should go with the Ryzen 7 5800X, while users who want the best overclocking and a slightly better workstation/multi-core performance may want to stick with the 10850K. Note that Intel will be switching to a new chipset with their 12th generation Alder Lake processors, so the upgrade path is limited to Intel's 11th generation Rocket Lake processors, which is mostly not worth the upgrade. Also, as of Q1 of 2020, the 10900K remains $75-100 more expensive than the 10850K. There is just not enough performance gain for most users to justify the extra cost, so most users would be better off with a 10850K. At the end of the day, the 10850K is still a very solid choice for anyone who wants a high-performing intel processor that will last for a good few years before really needing a upgrade.

Benching higher than 10900K and got it for 200 less, also temps are fine on a noctua D15

For $350, this is a fantastic deal. Although intel has lost this generation to AMD, they continue to cut prices so that we can't compare their chips to AMDs! Either way this is solid chip for the price.
