As we wait for our AMD Ryzen 5 3600X processor to arrive for testing we wanted to and take a look at its main competitor, the Intel Core i5-9600K 6-core processor. The Intel Core i5-9600K is currently priced at $249.89 shipped, which is slightly lower than the $279 price tag it had when it first came out in November 2018. The Intel Core i5-9600K that we are going to be looking at today is a retail boxed processor that was ordered in from Amazon and shipped directly to us. This specific CPU has six cores/six threads (no Hyper-Threading), a base frequency of 3.7 GHz, a max turbo frequency of 4.6 GHz, and a TDP of 95W. It supports up to 128GB of RAM and has Intel UHD Graphics 630 integrated graphics built-in.
