The Intel Core i5-8600K 3.6 GHz 6-Core LGA 1151 Processor provides six cores with each one operating between 3.6 and 4.3 GHz for editing digital content, streaming live gameplay, and running other types of intensive tasks. If you need more performance, you can overclock the cores to function above its maximum frequency. This 8th-generation Intel Core i5-8600K processor is built on Coffee Lake architecture and armed with 9MB of cache memory. The processor is compatible with motherboards that sport an LGA 1151 socket and an Intel Z370 chipset, so the CPU can provide up to sixteen PCIe 3.0 lanes for NVMe storage drives, graphics cards, and other high-performance parts.
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.
