Product Conclusion:

The Intel Core i7-9700K is an excellent CPU for work and gaming PCs. During the test, the processor achieves good benchmark results. With high clock speeds, a large number of cores and overclocking potential, you can’t go wrong with this model. At the same time, the i7-9700K is also quite expensive (about 300$), only slightly better than its predecessor and significantly behind the i9-9900K.

Advantages

meaningful chipset upgrade
good performance

Flaws

quite expensive
no multithreading

Intel Core i7-9700K and Coffee Lake

With the ninth generation of the Intel Core series, Intel is updating the Coffee Lake architecture. But she was another refresh of Kaby Lake, which in turn was the next step after Skylake. This means that we have been waiting in vain for real innovations since the distant 2015. However, Intel has settled on a 14nm process, while AMD is moving to 7nm next year. The top Intel i9-9700K processor, although it has some improvements, but its advantages, compared to the previous model, are not breakthrough enough.

Intel Core i7-9700K processor test: a new baby, but without much talentOnly slightly faster than the i7-8700K

The Intel Core i7-9700K showed excellent speed and performance in all benchmarks, with almost no shortcomings noticed. Both in the «everyday» PCMark 10 benchmark, and in demanding Excel simulation and video encoding, this processor is approximately at the same level as the Intel Core i9-9900K and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. Needless to say, in highly scalable applications such as Cinebench, performance is no longer as good, as it lacks the multi-threading feature found in both of the aforementioned top processors. This is reflected in the results in the Cinebench rendering benchmark or TrueCrypt encryption.

The previous model, Intel Core i7-8700K (6 cores, 12 threads), Intel Core i7-9700K (8 cores, 8 threads), although it overtakes in all tests, but often literally by a thread. But in the gaming area, on the contrary, there is nothing to grumble about. In 3DMark tests, this CPU in combination with the Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card shows almost identical performance with the Intel Core i9-9900K.

Z390 chipset: everything

Intel Core i7-9700K processor test: a new baby, but without much talentNot without updating the new motherboard chipsets. While with the Z370 (and most other 300-series chipsets) and the LGA1151v2 socket, the forced motherboard upgrade didn’t bring much improvement, the new Z390 does bring a fresh breeze with it. In particular, USB 3.1 Gen 2 is now natively supported at speeds up to 10 Gbps. Also on board are ac WLAN and Bluetooth 5. However, the latter features must be built in separately by motherboard manufacturers, and this can slightly increase the final cost of devices.

But these additions will cost customers significantly less than the previous components with integrated wireless functionality. As a result, users will have a much wider choice of different USB and Wi-Fi combinations. However, all ninth-generation CPUs are compatible with all 300-series chipsets.

Alternative:

Intel Core i7-9700K processor test: a new baby, but without much talentBetter and Cheaper — AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
(3.7 GHz) socket AM4

The competing model from AMD is not only significantly cheaper than the Intel Core i7-9700K (approximately 210$), but in the end it is even more productive.

Only in some benchmarks can an eight-core processor with 16 threads be inferior to an Intel representative.
