This is yet another processor from Intel that demonstrates their total market domination in the high end PC sector. The 4820K isn't really a step forward in any particular direction but rather a variant on what's already been available (performance wise) for a few years. As long as Intel is largely competing with itself they will likely continue with these sorts of incremental releases. The 4820K requires an Intel X79 chipset, which dates back to Sandy Bridge-E and lacks some of the newer features like native USB 3.0 support. An investment in the 4820K only makes sense if you already own an LGA2011 Motherboard and could be seen as good money chasing bad given that the platform is due an upgrade. That said the 4820K is a very capable multi-core processor and it sits amongst the top handful of processors in this regard. For typical consumers a Haswell i3 will offer mostly identical response times, a lower energy footprint and a significantly more competitive price. [Nov '13 CPUPro]

Intel’s Core i3-9100F is a quad-core 9th generation Coffee Lake desktop processor. It features base / boost clocks of 3.6 / 4.2 GHz, 6 MB of cache, a 65W TDP and it ships with a cooler. Gamers should pair the 9100F with a Z390 motherboard and unlock higher XMP RAM speeds. This will deliver up to a 15% fps boost which is well worth it considering that many Z390 boards are available for around $100 USD (here is one of the builds from our EFps test lab). The 9100F has great single core performance coupled with a strong memory sub system. This enables it to deliver excellent all round performance, easily holding its own against far pricier CPUs for the majority of use cases. The heavily hyped 12 threaded 6 core Ryzen 3600 barely pulls ahead in any of the top five games[Oct '19 CPUPro]
