Personally i dont think they do. The 9900k, although a beast, seems to me like a rushed project to stay ontop of the hill. If you want to hit those boost clocks you can forget the 95watt TDP they claim. The TDP when the cpu is at full tilt goes to something like 170watts from most articles i read hence why its so hard to keep the thing cool. I think they are at the limits with 14nm. They need to get ontop of their 7nm process and upcoming 10nm.Are the Athlon/Sempron days coming back? Personally I'm more interested in whether Intel has an answer though at the moment.
