Intel Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K Review
The L3 cache capacity is dropped down to 12 MB, too. For testing we're using the MSI Z390 Godlike, but also used the Asrock Z390 Taichi Ultimate to confirm the results.

The i7-9700k in 2021 - Are 8 Threads Enough?
Really fast, but for the price you would pay to get your hands on one of these, which I found for 290 Usd on Amazon. Is it worth the money when Amd offers very, very competitive chips? Well, yes, and also kinda no.

Intel Core i9 9900K & i7 9700K Review, Scorching Fast Performance!
The Core I7 9700 Okay, well, that's an even worse proposition in my opinion. And although I haven't done all the thermal testing that I would like to just yet and what I noticed when testing sort of, my initial impressions of it is it does appear to run a bit hotter than the A7.

**Intel Core i7-9700K** is a nice choice for streaming, however, you might want to hold off because of the Ryzen announcement, you could potentially get a faster CPU for a little extra money. **MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti** \- If your budget is around the price point of the full list, I'd recommend putting more money towards something like a 2000 series RTX card, and less towards your CPU. But it will ultimately depend on your monitor and game preference.
I have done some comparisons on the i7-9700K and iv noticed the CPU Load is rather high on certain games. I am not going to be using this machine for video editing, it is primarily a gaming machine but I would like a decent CPU that can handle alot of processes open.
