This processor have one of the lowest latency possible (People are not very aware of this, do some Research on google you will see), very good for competitive games, Good speed & Not bad At Overclocking.

Amazing cpu for gaming and basic work use.

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
