The Intel Core i9-10900X is Intel’s 10-core, 20-thread CPU that was supposed to be a big step-up from the Intel i9-9900K. It’s close in frequency — sort of — and higher in core count, but it’s also entering a field heavily dominated by the AMD R9 3900X and R9 3950X CPUs. All three of these, of course, have been largely paper launches, but both AMD and Intel are working toward getting shelves more consistently stocked. In the meantime, the 10900X’s launch is nothing short of a bloodbath, and it’s not in favor of the new Intel 10-core CPU. PCI-e lane count is perhaps the only defensible position, but even that is challenged by other chips on the market.
