have one runs very good almost the same as 9700k notice no difference at all in any of my games. 2 avg frame rate drop and is cheaper


Average

1 day ago.

Unless significantly cheaper than the 9700K, there's no reason to buy the 9700 as everything is locked down in every possible way. There is no way to exceed the stock settings as core ratio is controlled by the processor, that means all core turbo is stuck at 4.5 Ghz regardless of what you set in the BIOS. BLCK overclock is also locked out this generation. However, the 9700 is only 2% - 6% behind the 9700k at 5 Ghz all core, which means it's still faster than the 3700x

It's not the best, but if you don't need any overclocking, it's perfect and does the job nicely for what it costs...


Average

7 months ago.

Offered pretty much same performance as i7-9700K but without ability to OC and has lower base clock and all-core boost clock. Would opt to buy i7-9700K instead because this CPU is priced same as the OC-able counterpart.

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.
