The iGPU-less variant of i7-9700K. This CPU is priced $30 less than i7-9700K which makes this an option for high refresh rate gamers as this CPU still offers same performance as i7-9700K yet priced lower which leads to better value, higher overclocking potential and probably little bit lower power consumption and thermal generation due to lack of iGPU.

Very nice. A lot better but more expensive
