The Intel Core i5-10600KF is a desktop processor with 6 cores, launched in March 2020. It is part of the Core i5 lineup, using the Comet Lake architecture with Socket 1200. Thanks to Intel Hyper-Threading the core-count is effectively doubled, to 12 threads. Core i5-10600KF has 12MB of L3 cache and operates at 4.1 GHz by default, but can boost up to 4.8 GHz, depending on the workload. Intel is building the Core i5-10600KF on a 14 nm production process, the transistor count is unknown. You may freely adjust the unlocked multiplier on Core i5-10600KF, which simplifies overclocking greatly, as you can easily dial in any overclocking frequency.
With a TDP of 95 W, the Core i5-10600KF consumes a good deal of power, so decent cooling is needed. Intel's processor supports DDR4 memory with adual-channel interface. For communication with other components in the system, Core i5-10600KF uses a PCI-Express Gen 3 connection. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Core i5-10600KF, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Additionally, IOMMU virtualization (PCI passthrough) is supported, so that guest virtual machines may directly use host hardware. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, Intel is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
