Intel Core i5-11600K review | TechRadar

The Intel Core i5-11600K is Intel’s mid-range answer to the fantastic AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, with the same amount of cores and threads, and even a more affordable price – especially when you take the current shortage of AMD processors into consideration. 

And given the rocky launch of Intel’s 11th-generation processors, the Intel Core i5-11600K is probably the highlight of the entire generation, and easily the best processor Intel has put out this year. 

When that’s coupled with the fact that this processor is just $269 (£248, AU$419), compared to the Ryzen 5 5600X’s $349 (£349, AU$549) price tag, the Intel Core i5-11600K might just be the best processor for gamers that don’t really need to shell out for a super high-end processor.
