    I know about MCE and that Intel advertise max boost for 1 core for most of their processors. Only the 9900KS and the "special version the 14 cores i9-9990XE who Intel hide in their data base" will automatically enter all core boost without use of MCE (Multi-Core Enhancement).

    I talked more about implementing Boost Max Technology 3.0 for coming mainstream whitch identifies the best performing core(s) on a processor. All other former unlocked mainstream chips can reach all core boost due they didn't bin chips the way as AMD. Now we will see this change with the 10th gen mainstream who will get Bost 3.0 Tech.

    I doubt they will try with low 5ghz+ listed clocks, the TDPs at that point will be crazy.

    I understand now. I always thought performance was the same clock vs. clock. That is amazing that it is not, and I was very misinformed.

    If they’re selling these $3,000+ dollar ultra thin Razer/Zephyrus laptops. They should really put the best silicon in them. They certainly need the lowest voltage possible to create the least amount of heat to make up for the total lack in cooling capabilities.

    I remember when we use to see ASIC quality listed in GPu-Z. I had purchased a RX480 on launch date, and it was 99% ASIC quality. I felt special. I really did lol. It managed to outperform or match GTX980’s which was really good at the time. “With proper tweaking” ^

    I tested again.
    9900k @ 4.5 ghz, 4c/8t, cache 42, 4 cores disabled, Realtime priority scored 1023 CB.
    7820HK @ 4.5 ghz, 4c/8t, cache 42, realtime priority scored 1008 CB.

    What was strange was the 7820HK L3 cache bandwidth was slightly faster and 1ns lower (10.7ns vs 11.something ns) than the 9900k, and L1 and L2 latency seemed to be the same as the 9900k, but still scored lower. Something is castrated on the chip.

    Looks like I am late to the turdbook bashing party, may I please add something that counters the whole premise of the Aorus being an alternative to the X170 because it is thin and/or light?

    Because it turns out it isn't: It is 38 mm thick and weighs 3.8 kgs!
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Aorus...treme-performance-extreme-noise.445964.0.html

    I bet that this is within 2 or 3 mm and 500g of the X170 - not very impressive for an ultra-noisy turdbook.

    So what was the reason again to even consider it? :D

    Is there any news on when the X170 may release? Or any guesses? Or, 'guesses', if you know what I mean?

    Let's hope that more information gets out soon, I think that especially these would be good to know:

    weight
    dimensions
    screen options
    graphics card options

    And for workstation use it would be interesting to know if there will be a version that will take ECC Ram, Xeon processors and Quadro cards.
    For DTR use it would also be good to know how many drive slots it has, most other top of the line DTR's seem to have 4.
