    Hum... Looking more into it, I think you could be right. What score do you normally get when you set your 8700k to 4.4 ghz? The core clocks are showing stable at 4.4 ghz in Cinebench at least with HWMonitor and Intel XTU. Maybe my windows isn't nearly as optimized as yours or maybe errors are being thrown that I can look into. Papusan you're more experienced, so I'm open to your advise here.

    I went back and tested the CPU Physics score for 3D Mark again, and I must not have been OCing the CPU during the test or something else weird was happening. I just got 18,713 when I ran it again. I can upload a picture if you'd like.

    I think Aorus leaves the 8850H with more unlocked settings than most, but the 8950HK can go above and beyond 4.4 ghz. Also, typically the 8950HK will come with a larger power brink and thicker chassis for better cooling, but from my experience with the Aorus X9 the realistic performance difference is that I would run the 8950HK at 4.5 GHz, and the 8850H at 4.3 GHz.

    Total power limit is also being raised a tad on the 8950HK to around 108W, while the 8850H topped out at 102W. At least in these two machines.

    something interesting is the definition of 8850H given by Intel
    it's the first time they break the naming rule of overclocking model (no K attached) and we asked them why doing so & how to differentiate it with K-SKU, they didn't explain why there's 8850H with overclocking but they hinted the capability of OC on 8850H will be restricted.......

    i think the 8850h is a 8950hk just down clocked and with less cache. They are 8950hks that didnt make the cut to handle the specs of it. Thats why the oc is limited and topped at 102 watts

    Thanks for the reply.
    No need for pict. But with what oc'd clock speed? 4.2GHz? Because the Physics score you post here is below what you should expect from 4.3GHz all 6 cores. And way too low for 4.4GHz. Thanks

    Edit.
    And all those 3DM Fire strike Physics results showed here is crippled if it's run with 4.3GHz overclock on all cores https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/15988166/fs/15988181/fs/15988233#
