The i5-9600KF is the more powerful version of Intel's 9th Generation i5 desktop CPU. It is the same chip as the i5-9600K, except the "F" in the model number means it does not include integrated graphics. So if you purchase this chip, you will need a dedicated graphics card.

It has 6 cores, each running at 3.7 GHz.In our testing, it scored 194, which is about 15% higher then the i5-9400, which is one step down.

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is much faster, with a CompUSA Processor Benchmark score of 318.

This requires a 300 series Socket LGA 1151 motherboard. It will not work with a 100 or 200 series.

The "K" in the model number means that this CPU is unlocked, so it can be overclocked.
