Preorders Available for Intel Core i5-10400, i5-10600K, i7-10700K, and i9-10900K

As the reviews are starting to come in on Intel’s new 10th gen processors, Amazon has now made it possible to preorder the Intel Core i5-10400, i5-10600K, i7-10700K, and i9-10900K.

To quickly recap the new generation will be running on a LGA 1200 socket sitting on the Z490 chipset at launch and later on the H470 and B460 chipsets. Intel is abandoning the previous standard LGA 1511 socket and Z390 chipset that the 8th and 9th generations supported.

The i9-10900K is the fastest gaming CPU that you can get right now. PCPer concluded that the i9-10900K is the best way for gamers to get the most FPS possible from their GPU. They also observed that the i5-10600K almost gives the same performance of the i7-9700K, but for cheaper.
