This is waaaaay off.


Why is this rated so low?


The i5-9600 straight up out preforms against the i7-7700k in raw cpu power, as good as the i7-8700k in gaming and can even edge out the i9-9900k in certain games.


Yet somehow this cpu is a bottle neck? Its basically the same as the (K) edition not OC.
