Userbenchmark put intel to the top just to make it look like they are more valuable and more powerful. Kind of sad that intel has to do this to keep up with AMD


Excellent

A quite balance choice, even though the price is not far from 9700k. If you are not interesting in OC and just want a stable gaming environment, a good choice is here.
