9th Generation Intel Core i5 Processor
9th Generation Intel processors have introduced the new Solder Thermal Interface Material (STIM) for a more efficient heat transfer that gives greater control over temperatures when overclocking and using your PC for long periods of time. Perfect for the power user or expert gamer who demand lower temperatures under heavy use. Fine tune your overclock with the free Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) to get the maximum performance. The i5 9600K uses 14nm architecture and a 9MB cache for a balanced performance that doesn’t break the bank.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology brilliantly accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads and helps the CPU distribute power through the cores. As Hyper Threading has been turned off for the new range, the boost you get from the Turbo feature does not overheat the processor. DirectX 12 Support helps with optimization when running large apps and even 4K content at 60Hz.
