Based on specifications, this CPU is more inline with i9-9900 but lacking some features such as Thermal Velocity Boost, has lower base clock and boost clock. Also this CPU is currently ~$100 cheaper than i9-9900 which makes this a better value proposition than the aforementioned CPU. Performance wise, this CPU is ahead of i9-9900 currently.

It's a great CPU for gaming. K chips are pointless unless you are trying to get the big numbers on a benchmark. For practical daily use locked processors work fine.
