Then the intel i9 9900k processor is right for this. But with this you should also put a good quality mother. I am also a gamer and I also use Intel i9 9900k processor only. This is the perfect processor for streaming. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp RAJESH SURESH DAKE Raigarh, India 210 Questions 106 Answers 0 Best Answers 32 Points View Profile RAJESH SURESH DAKE Added an answer on February 11, 2020 at 3:02 pm Which i9? Previously the i9s were all x-series CPUs, essentially rebadged xeons. As such they had lots of cores, were quite pricy and suited for heavy computational work in workstation computers. Intel has just released a very different i9 however, the 9900k. This is not a rebadged Xeon, it’s an upgraded i7. It shares more in common with previous i7 cpus than previous i9s. I believe Intel is also going to release an i9x which will be a continuation of the previous i9 line. It’s possible that the i9 9900k is what the i7 9700k was supposed to be, but poor yields forced a price increase and so Intel opted to release a cut down i7 at the i7 price point, and the full fledged i9 at a higher intermediate (between consumer and x-series) price point. Who would want an i9 9900k? It offers better performance in games than the i7 9700k or 8700k, but probably not enough to justify the cost except to the real enthusiast. It’s currently the fastest commercial processor on the market for both single core and multi-core processing, beating the 2700x from AMD in every test I’ve seen. Of course it costs at least twice as much… Whether it’s “worth getting” is entirely a subjective view point. If you want the fastest CPU in games and in multi-core and you don’t want to wait for/can’t afford the i9x soon to be released, it’s worth it. I decided it was worth it because I play CPU intensive games but also render 3D graphics and edit video, the i9 9900k is the only commercial CPU that isn’t compromising one of those. Further, I already have an 8700k so a 9900k is a drop in upgrade, my existing motherboard supports it with just a bios update. An x-series would be too expensive, and since I’ve opted for a mini-itx system I’d need to basically build a whole new system from scratch. So it’s worth it for me because: I can afford it It handles all my work loads It drops straight in to my existing system without a major rebuild TLDR: it’s worth it if you don’t mind paying a premium for the all round fastest commercial CPU on the market. If you care about cost/performance ratio it’s not with it. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
