The Core i5-9600KF 3.7 GHz Six-Core LGA 1151 Processor from
Intel is designed for gaming, creating, and productivity. It has a base clock
speed of 3.7 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support,
Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-x and Intel VT-d virtualization technologies, Intel
TSX-NI, SSE4.1, 4.2, and AVX2 instruction set extensions, and more. With Intel
Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can
achieve is 4.6 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 6 cores with 6
threads in an LGA 1151 socket, has 9MB of cache memory, and 16 PCIe lanes.
Having 6 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously
without slowing down the system, while the 6 threads allow a basic ordered
sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU
core. This processor also supports up to 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4
RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.
Intel did not design this processor with an integrated
graphics chipset, meaning that users will need to purchase a compatible and
dedicated graphics card of their choice. If you need even more performance,
this processor is unlocked, which lets you overclock the processor over its
maximum speed. However, this is not recommended, as it will void the limited
3-year warranty. Included is a CPU cooler.
