Those disabled GPU's on the i9-9900KF's appear to help overclocking and he makes some convincing arguments given his binning experience.

 

Crappy graph but thats the range his CPU max temps given the 5.2 to 5.4 GHz frequency range.

Since it's the same price, I don't see why anyone running a dedicated GPU would buy the 9900k over the 9900kf. Even if you are not overclocking, I would think less variables would be a good thing for other reasons.

The original question is why would you buy a featured disabled chip for the same price as the feature enabled. Afterall the logic was "what if you could just disable the silicon via a BIOS switch". Well more testing is needed on the latter front (someone suggested loctite on the iGPU power pins lol)


If the overclocking and power/performance really is better, then yes, its a definitely recommended buy for dedicated GPU users like ourselves.
