it is very good for editing videos and is all amazing and it is cheaper

So expensive when cheap i3 have same single core performance and multi-core is not used anywhere.

5 GHz on all 10 cores with careful BIOS overclocking. I absolutely love it. Now I have single-thread performance (almost) second to none, which I need for math-heavy computation. With 10 cores and hyperthreading turned off, multicore performance is still extremely solid, but it is single-core perf with 5 GHz where this thing shines. Bought it because of the 256GB RAM support, this is a necessity for huge datasets.

Released 25 November 2019, this Cascade Lake-X CPU is the refresh of i9-9900X. What got improved is pricing which is almost the half of the mentioned CPU and some mitigation against silicon and hardware level vulnerabilities. This CPU got improved base clock and boost clock, with each having 200MHz and 100MHz higher clock respectively.

Maybe this CPU is not the best but it's scaleable ability bring to me so much choice to update, I plan to upgrade my gear from 16GB ram to 32GB ram for use this CPU maximum its performance

OC耐性はイマイチで温度は普通 マルチコアで同時処理は優秀 将来処理不足になれば上位CPUと交換可能 (i7 3770Kとの比較で満足です)

slower then my 7900x by far

This thing will do 5.00GHz all core clock out of the box stable but you need to set it manually. Most people won't do this or get close to it. When it's OC'd it can hit 10900K performance levels in some places but the quad channel memory doesn't really give much of a boost over the extra 3-4 MHz extra per core you'll get on the 10900K. Single core performance wasn't great on userbench but on 3DMark the 10900X actually does pretty well. My OC was top 98% on here and top 6% in 3DMark for the 10900X so maybe I just got lucky on the silicon lottery. Some guys seem to have pushed it to 5.3GHz or 5.4GHz but I don't want to push my voltage beyond 1.35v-1.37v If you're an old x299 sucker like me who thought quad memory would be a big boost for games then I would wait for 10nm Intel and upgrade. If you have to upgrade now get a 10900K. This is a stop gap for if you're stuck on the x299 platform and you're going to wait for intel 7nm or 5nm
