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
