Intel 10th Generation Core i7-10700K CPU (Comet Lake, 8/16 Cores/Threads, 3.8GHz Base, 5.1GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1200, 125W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX8070110700K
The i7-10700K is a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU. The "K" means that the CPU is unlocked, and overlockable. This has integrated UHD 630 graphics. Please note that this will require a Socket LGA 1200, so it WILL NOT WORK with older LGA 1151 boards of any series. We will update this page with more detail when we have a chance to benchmark.

Intel 9th Generation Core i7-9700K CPU (Coffee Lake, 8/8 Cores/Threads, 3.6GHz Base, 4.9GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 95W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I79700K
The i7-9700K is a 9th generation Core i7 CPU. It has 8 cores, each running at 3.6 GHz. It has integrated UHD 630 graphics. The "K" designation means that the CPU is unlocked. Like all Coffee Lake CPUs, this requires a 300 series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard. This scored a 261 in our CompUSA Processor Benchmark test, which is comfortably above the step-down i5-9600k (194), and comfortably below the step-up i9-9900K (335). The i9-9900K has the same 8 cores running at 3.6 GHz, but it adds hyperthreading, so there are 16 threads. The competitive Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800X both scored much higher in our benchmark, at 406 and 416, respectively. For gaming, specifically at lower resolutions, this card can have some advantages over the equivalent Radeon cards.

Intel 9th Generation Core i9-9900K CPU (Coffee Lake, 8/16 Cores/Threads, 3.6GHz Base, 5GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 95W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I99900K

Intel 9th Generation Core i9-9900K CPU (Coffee Lake, 8/16 Cores/Threads, 3.6GHz Base, 5GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 95W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I99900K
The i9-9900K is a 9th generation Intel i9 CPU. It has 8 cores running at 3.6 GHz. Unlike the i7 and below CPUs from this generation, it supports hyperthreading, so there are 16 total threads. The "K" designation means that this is an unlocked CPU, so it can be overclocked. It requires a 300 series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard, and supports up to DDR4-2666 RAM. In our CompUSA Processor Benchmark test, this scored 338, which is comfortably above the step-down i7-9700k (261). However, it was well behind the competitive Ryzen 9 3900X (597), as well as the Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800X (406 and 416). It is hard for us to recommend this CPU, especially when the price is $500+, unless you insist on using Intel.

Intel 9th Generation Core i5-9400 CPU (Coffee Lake, 6/6 Cores/Threads, 2.9GHz Base, 4.1GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 65W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I59400
The i5-9400 is Intel's bottom level 9th generation i5 CPU. It has six cores, each running at 2.9 GHz. In our testing, it is almost exactly in line with the Ryzen 5 3400G, which can usually be found a little cheaper. Like all Coffee Lake Intel CPUs, this requires a 300 Series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard. At 65W TDP, the i5-9400 has the lowest power requirements of each of the 9th Gen i5 CPUs, which makes it a good fit for a smaller desktop system with less ventilation.

Intel 9th Generation Core i3-9350KF CPU (Coffee Lake, 6/6 Cores/Threads, 4GHz Base, 4.6GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 91W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I39350KF
83%
Intel 9th Generation Core i3-9350KF CPU (Coffee Lake, 6/6 Cores/Threads, 4GHz Base, 4.6GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 91W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I39350KF
The i3-9350KF is a Coffee Lake (9th Gen) CPU running at 4.0 GHz, with a boost of 4.6 GHz. It requires a 300 series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard. In the Intel hierarchy, this sits just above the 9100 and 9100F, and just below the 9400F. The "K" in the name means that the CPU is unlocked, so if you're willing to try, you can attempt to overclock. The "F" in the name means that there are no integrated graphics. So you're going to need to find a graphics card to use if you're building a system from scratch. In our testing, the i3-9350KF scored 143. This is slightly above the competing Ryzen 3 3200G (with a score of 130), but below the Ryzen 5 3400G (with a score of 169) and significantly below the Ryzen 3 3100 (with a score of 217).

Intel 9th Generation Core i3-9100 CPU (Coffee Lake, 43925 Cores/Threads, 3.6GHz Base, 4.2GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 65W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I39100
The i3-9100 is Intel's entry level 9th Gen i3 chip. It includes UHD 630 integrated graphics, and has four cores. This requires an LGA 1151 motherboard, make sure that you get 300 series. Like all Coffee Lake and later Intel CPUs, it WILL NOT work with a 100 or 200 series motherboard. The integrated UHD 630 graphics are decent. With a CompUSA Processor Benchmark score of 120, this is competitive with the AMD Ryzen 3200G (130), and lags well behind the Ryzen 3 3100 (217).

Intel 9th Generation Core i5-9600K CPU (Coffee Lake, 6/6 Cores/Threads, 3.7GHz Base, 4.6GHz Boost, Socket LGA 1151 (300 Series), 95W TDP Desktop Processor), Model BX80684I59600K
The i5-9600K is Intel's most powerful 9th Generation i5 CPU. It has 6 cores, each running at 3.7 GHz. The "K" in the name means that it unlocked, so it is overclockable. It includes integrated UHD 630 graphics. If you plan on using a dedicated graphics card, the i5-9600KF is the exact same chip without graphics, so you could possibly save a few dollars going that route. This requires a 300 series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard. In our CompUSA Performance Benchmark, this scored 194. The i7-9700K is considerably faster at 261, as is the Ryzen 5 3600 at 318.
