The Core i5-10600KF 4.1 GHz Six-Core LGA 1200 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 4.1 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel vPro, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-d Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.8 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 6 cores with 12 threads in an LGA 1200 socket, has 12MB of cache memory, and 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes. Having 6 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 12 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.
Intel did not design this processor with an integrated graphics chipset, meaning that users will need to purchase a compatible and dedicated graphics card of their choice. If you need even more performance, this processor is unlocked, which lets you overclock the processor over its maximum speed. However, this is not recommended, as it will void the limited 3-year warranty.
Please note that this processor does not include a heatsink or fan and requires a separately-sold CPU cooling solution.
