Intel's 10th gen and 11th gen CPUs are pretty decent overclockers. 10th gen K series can hit 4.8GHz all core with little trouble and is 100% stable provided you have good VRMs and sufficient cooling. Same can be said for AMD CPUs. So instead of Intel releasing the 10600K at up to 4.8GHz boosted, why don't they release a 10600K that runs at 4.8GHz all core instead of 4.1GHz and then have it boost to 4.8GHz under the right conditions? They would be able to charge more, take away overclocking, and run all their K CPUs at their max performance. They wouldn't have to rely on consumers and reviewers to do all that work. I mean, who doesn't want to get the most out of their PC? I know overclocking is all about binning but when pretty much ever single K processor can run 4.8GHz, does the question of binning and silicon quality matter anymore?
