I think my 9900k is anything but slow.
Would I buy it today? Why not. 10900k is €200 more expensive than 9900k.
8c/16t at 5ghz all core is good enough for the next 5 years. I'll upgrade to 20c/40t once they reach past 5ghz which should be within 5 years.
This is just marketing and this "der8auer" can suck it.

I don't know what they're doing in the EU, but the RCP in the US is exactly the same between the 9900K and 10900K. Even with a 24% VAT the price will still be the same between the two. It must be retailers who are price gouging.

Yes, they are assholes and quite large.
i9-9920X is only €10 higher.
