Intel Core i5-11600
It has been, is and surely will be one of the best-selling Intel processors for gaming due to its excellent performance / price / FPS ratio. This is not the K version unlocked for overclocking, it’s true, but it has the same 6 cores and 12 threads as its sibling with a base frequency of 2.8 GHz and Boost of 4.8 GHz. . a TDP of only 65 watts.
Finally, its iGPU is the well-known 1.3 GHz UHD 750 with 32 EU. It can be found with a 9% discount to come in at 208.95 dollars.
Intel Core i9-11900K
It was for a long time the best Intel in the gaming market in stiff competition with AMD options. Not a year ago it was presented with its 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.5 GHz and a turbo of 5.3 GHz. The cache is the expected 16 MB L3 and its TDP is fixed at 125 watts and includes in this version iGPU UHD 750.
Its price drops to 505.45 dollars.
It is one of the smallest of the 10th generation of CPU and therefore its price is lower, but its features are more than suitable for office automation and even games, why not. It claims 4 cores with 8 threads at a frequency of 4.3 GHz in Boost and 6 MB of L3 for a TDP of only 65 watts.
As this is an F version, it does not have iGPU, which also logically influences its price, which drops dramatically by 38% to settle at 74.95 dollars.
Undoubtedly a sales leader today for its balance, and it is no less: 6 cores, 12 threads, 4.3 GHz in Boost, 12 MB of L3 and 65 watts of TDP. It is only weakening in its iGPU because it is from the 6 series (UHD 630), but it is by no means a bad “card”, since it reaches 1.1 GHz.
This is the CPU with the smallest price drop and that makes sense, it is currently selling like hot cakes, so the 4% that drops to stay at 175.95 dollars should be well received.
Difficult dispute over the number of processors sold with its 10th generation brother. This CPU is the natural substitute and retains its essence: 6 cores, 12 threads, up to 4.4 GHz and 12 MB of L3 for 65 watts.
This is definitely a step forward, but where it makes the most difference is in the iGPU, since it gets the UHD 730 at 1.3 GHz. For all this its price is a little higher although it is very close thanks to the discount of 6% that it includes staying right in the barrier of 200 dollars: 199.89 dollars exactly.
And so far the Intel CPU offers to end this 2021 with a new processor in your PC. Run for them!
