Only compatible with their 300-series chipset-based motherboards, the Core i5-9600K 3.7 GHz Six-Core LGA 1151 Processor from Intel is designed for gaming, creating, and productivity. It has a base clock speed of 3.7 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, AES-NI encryption, Intel vPro technology, Intel TXT, Intel Device Protection with Boot Guard, and Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O. With Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.6 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 6 cores with 6 threads in an LGA 1151 socket, has 9MB of cache memory, and 24 PCIe lanes. Having 6 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 6 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports dual-channel DDR4-2666 RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.
