Who would spend that much money on a CPU without HT right now?, I guess either someone with a compatible motherboard and a pentium or core i3. Otherwise go for 10th gen intel or Ryzen 3xxx

At that price, it is competing against the cheaper Ryzen 5 3500 which cost less, and very closely priced against the Ryzen 5 3600 which is overall faster than the i5. Considering that you need to get a Z370/390 series motherboard to overclock the i5 9600K, I feel the price is still unattractive.

I would think about it, given that it was on a smaller node and had more physical cores...
The 9600K Smaller node and more physical cores? Than what? Its a 14nm CPU, like all Intel CPUs from the last 5 years.

Unless you are comparing it agasint the Core i5 7600K, which was a 4 core CPU, but still the same 14nm node?
