The Core i5-4690 is Intel's latest and greatest locked Core-i5. This CPU will suit serious gamers that don't plan on overclocking. The 4690 replaces the 4670 and shares exactly the same specs aside from base and turbo clock bumps of 100 MHz. The 100 MHz clock bump results in barely noticeable real world performance improvements and, if anything, makes the older 4670 more attractive as suppliers reduce prices to try to clear stocks. For regular desktop use such as email, surfing, and listening to music, this CPU is overkill and there is far better value amongst lower powered and significantly cheaper CPUs but for gamers and moderate power users the 4690 is a good locked option. [Jun '14 CPUPro]

Intel’s tenth gen, six-core i5-10600K is one of the fastest consumer CPUs currently available. Out of the box, its maximum all core frequency is 4.5 GHz, but a simple overclock allows all 12 threads to hit 5.0 GHz. Although a new Z490 (LGA1200) motherboard is required, Intel have indicated that LGA1200 will remain compatible with Rocket Lake CPUs which are due later this year. The eight-core Ryzen 3700X currently competes in the 10600K’s price bracket. CPU based encoding is akin to using hair clippers on a lawn but If dedicated hardware such as NVENC or QuickSync is not an option, the 3700X can outperform the 10600K in encoding workloads such as UserBenchmark 64-core, Cinebench, Blender-CPU and Handbrake-CPU. Meanwhile, the 10600K is better for almost everything else. Currently, the real problem with the 10600K, and much of the Comet Lake line up, is availability. Whilst there was a paper launch in Q2 2020, at the time of writing, the 10600K is still largely unavailable for purchase. In order to achieve better value for money, without compromising on gaming performance, it is necessary to consider the older generation 9600K which is 26% cheaper and offers similar gaming performance. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
