Intel Core i5-9500 with GPU and good performance
The Intel Core i5-9500 is a six-core processor with good CPU performance that works well in an everyday PC or a cheap gaming PC.
Intel Core i5-9500 Review: measured values
On top of that, there is an integrated graphics unit that makes an additional graphics card in an office or media computer obsolete. In addition, the power consumption is low and the price is cheap!
The Intel Core i5-9500 is a CPU of the 9th core generation and intended for socket 1151 motherboards. It is built in a 14 nm production method and has a thermal power loss (TDP) of 65 watts. So you don’t need a special cooling solution. It also has 6 cores, can process 6 threads at the same time and boosts from 3.00 GHz in the base up to 4.40 GHz. The price is around 180 euros.

Compared to the competing CPU, the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X, the i5-9500 draws the same overall rating. For the most part, the benchmark results differ only marginally. In the gaming area, for example, we measured only 4 points difference in PCMark 10 (Intel: 9,139 points, AMD: 9,135 points).
And with SPECworkstation 3, FSI: Black Scholes it is only around 1 second (Intel: 256.78 seconds, AMD: 255.56 seconds). Greater the difference about the everyday benchmark PCMark 10 Essentials (Intel 8738 points, AMD: 9,340 points), but no one can total from the other in our leaderboard deposed!
The i5-9500 can differ in terms of its integrated graphics unit. It can cope with everyday tasks and graphically undemanding games.
