Intel has equipped the Intel Core i5-8600K processor with an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset that outputs up to 4K visuals through your motherboard's DisplayPort and HDMI ports. When connected to a DisplayPort-enabled monitor, the Intel UHD Graphics 630 can produce 4096 x 2304 resolution at 60 Hz. Running under a 4K resolution lets you enjoy ultra high-definition videos as well as view more information onscreen when compared to working in a lower resolution workspace.

Aside from graphics, the Intel Core i5-8600K processor has an average power requirement of 95W and supports DDR4 2666 MHz memory modules, running in a dual- or single-channel configuration.

question

I ordered mine about a week ago and at the time it said they'd be available in 3-7 days. It still says that and I haven't heard anything about my order yet. Any idea how much longer I'll be waiting? This is the only part I'm still waiting on for my PC build.
Asked by: Tegan V.
Be patient, it'll come soon :)When i put in my pre order at the end of October, i emailed them. One guy said we should expect restock in beginning of Jan!! I was not happy to hear that, but a few days after that email i got an email saying my cpu had shipped. I'd suspect if you ordered about a week ago, wait another solid 2 weeks and it should ship by then.
