Marvel and Intel had a partnership last year with Intel being the official PC hardware partner for the PC version of the Avengers… the video game, not the movies. Intel is apparently calling in their favor with a special release CPU tagged with “KA” in the processor name. Famed leaker momomo_us has shared listings of several new Intel CPUs with the “KA” series from a Vietnam retailer.
Intel is seemingly planning to release 4 CPUs from the i5, i7 and i9 line with SKUs i5-10600KA, i7-10700KA, i9-10850KA and the i9-10900KA. These CPUs are expected be 100% identical to their K series counterparts with the difference being the special packaging to commemorate the release and partnership as well as game codes Marvel’s Avengers on PC.
Tom’s Hardware received a response from Intel with the following:

“The listing reference is related to an upcoming partner promotion featuring 10th Gen Intel Core processors. The “KA” designation is an ordering code only and not a new processor SKU.”
These CPUs are expected for global launch in the following weeks with Marvel’s Avengers on September 4, 2020.
