Intel’s Core i7-9700K is an unlocked 9th generation Coffee Lake CPU. It is an 8 core, 8 thread processor. The 9700K features 12 MB of cache, a 95W TDP and Intel UHD 630 graphics. Like the other 9th generation chips, it is compatible with Intel’s new Z390 chipset as well as last years Z370 chipset (with an updated BIOS). The 9700K has stock base / boost clocks of 3.6 / 4.6 GHz and a single core boost of 4.9 GHz (compared to 3.6, 4.7 and 5.0 GHz for the flagship 9900K). This translates to almost identical single, quad and octa core performance between the 9900K and 9700K. Mainstream PC games do not benefit from more than eight threads, so at $350 (25% cheaper than the 9900K), the 9700K offers far better value for money to gamers. That said for purely gaming there is very little reason not to consider the i5-9600K which, when overclocked, offers almost equivalent gaming performance but at a 35% discount[Oct '18 CPUPro]

MORE DETAILS

The Intel Core i5-750 is a mid-range quad core, four thread desktop processor which is part of the Nehalem series launched in Q3 2009. Considering the age of this processor, its effective speed of 67 is damn impressive. It has a base frequency of 2.66 GHz, which boosts to 3.2 GHz turbo when under load and can be significantly extended beyond by overclocking. Combined with a decent graphics card, the i5-750 should give a reasonable gaming experience even by today’s standards. There are of course faster modern alternatives such as the i5-4690K, but if you already have the 750 with an older graphics card it's likely that your GPU will need updating before the CPU. Comparing the 750 and 4690K shows that the 4690K has an effective speed of 109 which is 62% faster than the now five years old i5-750. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
