The Silicon Lottery store team has already presented prices for selected and tested copies of the fresh Intel Core i9-9900KS processor. According to the retailer, all CPUs for sale were tested using a load in the form of tests with support for AVX2:
A selected sample of the Core i9-9900KS processor capable of stable operation at a frequency of 5200MHz for all eight cores will cost its potential buyer $1199.
But Silicon Lottery had not forgotten about “thrifty” enthusiasts. For a chip with a stable frequency of 5100 MHz, you will have to pay “only” $749:
Is 100MHz worth a $ 226 surcharge and 200MHz at $ 534 is more of a rhetorical question. However, these processors will find their buyers anyway. Indeed, some popular overclockers simply do not have enough time to independently select a successful copy among several hundred CPUs. In this case, it is easier for an enthusiast to pay extra than to waste precious time.
We remind you that Silicon Lottery store has nothing to do with Intel and purchasing a CPU there, you most likely cannot count on the manufacturer’s official warranty (especially if the chip was scalped).
