Intel Core i9-9900K Processor Review

With AMD's second generation Ryzen launch we saw the Ryzen 7 2700X take the top spot ahead of Intel's Core i7-8700K in terms of overall performance. Intel still had stronger performance in games, but the Ryzen 7 2700X was very attractive to not just gamers, but creators, designers, etc. With 8-cores and 16-threads it really is a great processor. Now it is time for Intel to strike back and today we have probably the most anticipated Intel product of the year, the Core i9-9900K. This is Intel's first 8-core, 16-thread mainstream processor, packing in clock speeds of 3.6 GHz base and a single-core turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz. Intel calls the Core i9-9900K the world’s best processor for gaming and today we are going to see if that is true and how it stacks up against other processors out there.
