Okay so it’s *almost* the cheapest it’s ever been in the UK, but we’re talking a couple of pounds between it. It’s such good value for this top CPU.
The 9th-generation Intel i9-9900k offers eight cores of processing power, with clock speeds of up to 5.0GHz if you’re happy overclocking. This is compatible with Intel 300 Series chipset-based (LGA1151) motherboards, so just make sure your MoBo is the right type otherwise you’re going to find yourself making an expensive mistake.
It’ll hold it’s own against any of the best CPUs for gaming – even those shinier new ones that came out this year – and if you team it with one of the best graphics cards, and some of the best RAM for gaming, and you have the foundations of a very, very good gaming PC.
