ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WiFi) Motherboard Review
When it comes to AMD motherboards the Republic of Gamers Crosshair boards have always been some of the best out there. If you didn’t know ASUS actually launched the Republic of Gamers line with the Crosshair AM2 motherboard and the first AM4 motherboard I ever reviewed was the ROG Crosshair VI Hero. Two generations later we have the X570 chipset which brings with it quite a lot of performance and features. The ROG Crosshair VIII from ASUS features a very sleek design, USB 3.2 connectivity, two PCI-Express 4.0 M.2 slots, a load of USB 3.1 ports, 802.11ax WiFi plus 2.5G LAN, a 7+1 power phase design, and of course RGB lighting. Is this the ultimate board for your Ryzen 3000 series build? Read on to find out!

Intel Core i9 9900KS Linux Performance Benchmark
Today the Intel Core i9 9900KS is shipping at $513 USD for this specially-binned Coffeelake CPU that is capable of achieving a 5.0GHz all-core turbo frequency. The all-core 5.0GHz turbo is great, but it remains an eight-core / sixteen-thread 14nm processor going up against AMD's similarly priced Ryzen 9 3900X. Here are our initial benchmarks of the Core i9 9900KS compared to the Core i9 9900K and Ryzen 9 3900X.

Intel Core i9-9900KS (Coffee Lake) Processor Review
For the first time in a long time we know the exact turbo table from Intel, directly from Intel, the CPU runs at 5GHz all core Turbo. The CPU has eight cores and 16 threads, and it has a TDP of 127W, which is much higher than the 95W TDP of the 9900K. It also has 16MB of Smart Cache, and is identical to the 9900K except for a 400MHz higher base clock at 4GHz, and a 300MHz higher all core Turbo at 5GHz. Pricing The Core i9-9900KS is priced at $513, but we will see how the market reacts to supply and demand.

Intel Core i9-9900KS 8 Core and 16 Thread 5.0 GHz CPU Review
Intel has come a long way with its mainstream processor platform. The platform has largely seen stagnation in terms of core and thread count over many generations since the first Core series CPU that launched back in 2010 but last year brought a big change to the CPU giant. What seemed to be a generational core clock bump has now turned into a generational core count bump while keeping the clock speed improvements.

The Coffee Lake-S 8th Generation family, was the first big core count jump on the mainstream 300 series platform. It was an opportunity for Intel to show that they don't only hold the IPC or clock speed advantage on the mainstream segment but they can also offer good multi-threading CPU performance. By the end of 2018, Intel launched its 9th Generation Core family, featuring up to 8 cores and 16 threads.

Intel Core i9-9900KS CPU Review
Today, Intel unleashed their 9th Gen Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor to gamers and enthusiasts that are looking to build a new PC or upgrade an old one. Billed as the ultimate gaming processor, the i9-9900KS features up to 5.0 GHz all-core turbo frequency across 8 cores and 16 threads. This processor is a very highly binned Intel Core i9-9900K, so it is only going to be available for a limited time and as such is only backed by a 1-year warranty. Our sources have told us that fewer 9900KS processors were made than last years Intel Core i7-8086K limited edition processor and the same sources let us know that fewer than 50,000 of those were made. Intel sells over 100 million processors a year, so this is a very limited part from Intel.

Intel Core i9-9900KS Review
5 is the magic number. Up until March 2017 it used to be easy to decide on which CPU you wanted for that premium PC build. Hobson's choice meant that, for the vast majority, a particular Intel processor was the way to go. AMD's Ryzen, progenitor to subsequent generations, changed the landscape irrevocably.

Intel, however, has not stood absolutely still, upping its game by releasing a Core i9 raft of chips designed for top-tier performance. At the mainstream level, where Core does battle with Ryzen, the current champion is the 9900K from October 2018, and though it falls short on core-and-thread muscle compared to AMD's finest, brought into sharper relief with the availability of the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X, Intel still holds a lead in gaming throughput and, absolutely subjectively, general system responsiveness.

Intel Core i9-9900KS Review
Intel has been talking about its Core i9-9900KS processor for months now. It was all the way back in May that the company first revealed what would become the new flagship processor in its mainstream computing platform. The Core i9-9900KS is not something totally new, however. As the “S” in its name implies, the Core i9-9900KS is something akin to a special edition of the existing Core i9-9900K. The processors are built from the same slab of silicon – an 8-core, Coffee Lake-refresh based die, packaged up for Intel’s LGA1151 socket. What makes the Core i9-9900KS different from its predecessor are its base and turbo boost clocks, in addition to its TDP. Whereas the Core i9-9900K has a base-clock of 3.6GHz and a single-core turbo boost clock of 5GHz, the Core i9-9900KS cranks the base clock up to an even 4GHz and all eight of its cores can turbo up 5GHz...
