Model: Intel Core i5-9600K


The Intel Core- series of processors have now received their latest upgrade in the form of the Coffee Lake-S Refresh. This new updated range brings some highly sought after improvements, including the fact that CPUs with unlocked multipliers now offer soldered heatspreaders (IHS). This enables heat to be more effectively dissipated away from the CPU, allowing higher clock frequencies over longer periods of time.

The Intel Core i5-9600K is the budget model of the Core 9000- series and offers six cores. This mid-range CPU is also capable of increased clock frequencies and boost functions in comparison with its predecessors and the TDP of this hexacore CPU is just 95 Watts. The processor is compatible with Socket 1151 motherboards.
