Intel’s alternative flagship 10900kf is an utter catastrophe. It’s cost isn’t nearly enough to justify its purchase over the thoroughly disappointing 10900k, which offers quick sync and easier troubleshooting, and it is handily beaten by a tuned 10600k or 10600kf. The only benefit it has over the aforementioned i5s is its 4 extra cores, which are completely demolished by AMD’s fantastic Ryzen 9 series which have been on the market since 2019.
