The Intel Core i5-10600K is available now, for a suggested retail price of $262. This puts it squarely up against the $239 (£239, AU$389) AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. Both are 6-core, 12-thread processors, which will allow mid-range buyers of both Intel and AMD to gain the benefits that multi-threading brings.

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The six-core, twelve thread Core i5-10600K ticks at a 4.1 GHz and 4.8 GHz boost. Pricing is competitive, especially with the $25 discount for picking the graphics-less 10600KF model. Just don't expect to do any meaningful gaming on the Intel chip without a dedicated graphics card.

  • Excellent overclocking performance
  • Great value

The Intel Core i5-10600K is not the flagship from the blue team's 10th Gen of desktop CPUs. However, this chip will almost certainly be one of the best-selling. Intel's latest CPU squares up against the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, which offers a similar specification for £210.
