Leos Notes:

Core i9-9900K – the World’s Best Gaming Processor?
Intel 9th Gen. launch in NYC

Benchmarking report from Principled Technologies has caused a furore HERE

They used Noctua coolers on AMD Threadripper and Intel CPUs but AMD Wraith Prism on 2700X
They used 64GB of DDR4 RAM
Biggest issue was setting AMD Ryzen Master to Game Mode which disables half the cores of 2700X making it a quad core CPU
