    My bad, posted too early.
  • Teckk - Sunday, May 26, 2019 - link

    So this is the 9900K at 65W. 10nm hitting Intel gradually
  • Chaitanya - Monday, May 27, 2019 - link

    Intel 10nm is a vaporware, just a smokescreen used to please its investors.
  • Jorgp2 - Sunday, May 26, 2019 - link

    Damn, Lisa looks wird in high heels and jeans

    Damn Lisa is such a tease. She keeps saying "Ryzen 9 Family" and only announces a 12 core part.
  • danielfranklin - Monday, May 27, 2019 - link

    AMD 5700 series?
    We have seen that before....
    No 5800 series yet?
    Come on, use the 5770/5750 model numbers again, back to the glory days!
  • zodiacfml - Monday, May 27, 2019 - link

    Brings back memories of the Athlon 1GHz and the Pentium 4 debacle, those overclocked Pentium Ms that are as good as Pentium 4s at significantly less power consumption, then turns out that those Athlons performs similarly to the Pentium Ms.
    AMD is going to be in a healthy position for at least 1-2 years.
