So I want to buy intel 10900k but I can't get that anywhere and 10900ka seems exactly the same but less priced I'm pretty sure there is something amiss with the chip why would they sell it below par ? is there any difference at all if any ? should i buy KA chip instead of K ?
It's not listed it's the Avengers edition and looks fairly same on paper but i wonder why have they reduced the cost ? With new branding and theme ? There has to be something that intel is not telling us
Yes i have noticed the specs are same but why have the reduced the cost i wonder if there is anything hidden that we don't know of ? Shall i get the chip and csn expect the same performance as the normal standard version ?
It's not fake. Where did you get that idea from? It's the EXACT SAME as a K sku, it just happens to come with the Avengers special limited edition packaging. That, is the ONLY difference. And it's cheaper, probably because there is an advertising agreement between them and the Walt Disney company.
EDIT prices could vary by retailer! For games the 10600K or 10700K is probably the best buy. Or their always AMD if you buy their products the new releases could change a lot but don't buy one till actual benchmarks come out.
That's fairly good response guys , I'm planing to buy the KA version since it's cheaper and literally the same specs i hope there's no hidden flaw in it. will report back and please if anyone has more knowledge on it then share because i read somewhere that KA version has less boost clock ..eh ..not sure at all !
You'll be fine so long as you are buying through a reputable retailer. If you are not buying through a reputable retailer then it wouldn't matter what model you bought anyhow, because they would ALL stand the same chance of being some fake or faulty piece of crap in the end.
Could be, but the price hike is due to the 10900k being out of stock everywhere so the A model is basically a new batch of 10900k hitting the market which would lower the prices anyway no matter what they would call it.
