What is the first thing to look for when buying a new processor? Price? Performance? And maybe, after all the packing? According to the official Intel Gaming Twitter, the company is preparing a special collector’s edition processors, along with the company Marvel. That is, the previously unheard rumor confirmed.
The buyers of these chips can count on a bright box with a special poster for “the Avengers” and created by American artist Tristan Eaton (Tristan Eaton). About its creation, Intel said in a short video:

Officially, it’s practically all the available information, however, leaks report that the proposals in the exclusive package will include new versions of Intel’s Comet Lake overclocked. We are talking about chips like the Core i9-10900K that Intel in the database will receive a special naming Core i9-10900KA.
If this practice proves successful for Intel, of course, it will set a precedent for future similar joint actions. It is unclear, Intel is licensing the brand of Marvel, or Marvel pays Intel for joint promotion ahead of the launch of the new game Marvel’s Avengers, the release of which is scheduled for September 4 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Intel has confirmed that the new processors will offer exclusive costumes in the game sets. Perhaps the buyers of such processors with the marking of KA will receive a free code to download Marvel’s Avengers, and not just exclusive cosmetics for popular characters.
Prices and release processors on the market not reported – probably more detailed information will appear closer to September 4.
