Intel"s shifted its focus onto the 10th ren for its desktop processors nowadays, & they"ve got AMD"s upcoming Ryzen 5000 processors to giảm giá khuyến mãi with, so there"s not much love circulating for Intel"s 9th ren in general or the chip core i7 9700K in particular. Still, I think it"s a pretty great processor, và I"m not just saying that because my PC is fitted with one.

Okay, maybe I am. No PC game thủ wants to lớn admit their rig isn"t as shiny and new as it used lớn be. But the bộ vi xử lý core i7 9700K is a great gaming chip nonetheless. With eight cores and eight threads of Coffee Lake refresh goodness within, and a max boost clock of 4.9GHz, this cpu has exactly what it takes lớn deliver excellent frames per second, và a little more.

The core i7 9700K is not a particularly populous chip nowadays. Intel và its distributors are smart to limit stock of last gen chips when the next generation launches, & that usually results in fewer old chips hanging after the fact. With the 9th ren we"ve seen that lớn some extent, yet the limited availability of 10th gen chips did have the previous generation lingering around for a little while longer there. Still, if you vì find one this đen Friday, here"s what khổng lồ expect.

What is the Intel chip core i7 9700K?

Cores: 8Threads: 8Base clock: 3.6GHzMax boost clock: 4.9GHzSocket: LGA 1151TDP: 95 WCooler: NoneLaunch price: $374 - $385 (tray price)

The Intel chip core i7 9700K was introduced alongside the first-of-its-kind chip core i9 9900K, which left the cheaper of the two in a rather strange place. Usually the vi xử lý core i7 would be king of the hill, the best CPU in Intel"s desktop, non-HEDT lineup. It was usually the fastest, too.

With the 9th Gen, the vi xử lý core i9 9900K took that position, reserving 5GHz and above for its sacred silicon. Not only that, hãng sản xuất intel also flipped off Hyper-Threading for the chip core i7, meaning it arrived with eight cores and eight threads, as opposed lớn the vi xử lý core i9 9900K"s eight cores and 16 threads.

Yet I don"t think that should put you off too much—if you find a great giảm giá on one, that is. That"s still eight cores of high-performance 14nm power, và no matter how old that may sound in the face of AMD"s Ryzen 5000 series, it"s still a fantastic loadout for gaming. Us lot ideally want powerful, high-IPC, high-clock speed cores in our chips, and the i7 9700K delivers that in swathes.

What are the alternatives to the Intel core i7 9700K?

Speaking of AMD Ryzen 5000 processors, they"re almost here & they"re bringing a significant gaming performance boost with them. I won"t go into the specifics, you can read more about the AMD Ryzen 5000 series here, but it looks lượt thích the Ryzen 7 5800X will be a great alternative khổng lồ not just the older core i7 9700K, but even Intel"s newer 10th gen processors too. Thing is, it"s actually a little pricier than Intel"s offerings at $449 at launch.

Beyond the red team, Intel"s own 10th gen was also a step in a different direction for Intel. The company turned Hyper-Threading back on for its chip core i7 10700K, making for an eight-core/16-thread processor. That"s not all. The core i7 10700K is also a faster chip at 5.1GHz. With a recommended price tag a little under $400, it"s arguably the better buy for the same cash. The thing is, the chip core i9 9700K can now be found for much cheaper.
