First time I've seen a 9th gen Intel Core CPU for under £100. Yes, I'm sure not everyone likes Scan (though I personally have only had good experiences). And yes, AMD will give you more bang for buck on multithreaded workloads. And yes, there's no integrated GPU. But if you want a high-IPC quad core CPU, this feels like a good deal.
_____

Experience exceptional performance, immersive entertainment and simple





convenience with 9th Gen Intel Core processors. The i3-9100F processor





extends all the capabilities that users love from previous generation





CPUs with even more advanced innovations that deliver new levels of





performance immersing you into your computer on a variety of form





factors.








Please Note: Although the Intel 9th CPUs are compatible with a range of





Intel 300-series motherboards utilizing the LGA 1151 socket, for





optimum power delivery, maximum performance, & the best possible





overclocking experience, we recommend using a Intel Z390 motherboard





with these processors.
The Intel Core i3-9100F processor DOES NOT





feature an iGPU. A discrete graphics card MUST be installed in your





system in order to output to a display.

Not sure if this anyone has seen this but ebuyer have it for £91.49 + £3.49 so £94.48 in total. I know some people have issues with ebuyer, just as they do with Scan, but with a saving of more than a £10 it seems like a no brainer?

Would recommend spending the extra 35 for an i5 9400f for a 50% increase in core count if you can stretch your budget:

Sorry, this was £99.98 but in moderation it appears that delivery has been added. I don't see why you couldn't pick this up in store for that price, but apologies, my first deal and probably should have ticked the in store button.

Thanks for your warm welcome. I don't work for Scan, I'm not sponsoring, I literally just saw the price and thought it was quite good. I even put all the disclaimers about why it might be not conceived as good or there are other alternatives, but if you (like me) were looking for a GPU-less basic Intel CPU you might have been interested. Instead it seems you'd rather point the finger of accusation and assumption and writhe in your own self-supremacy.

Don't worry about it mate. You should see some of the flack I've got over the years just ignore them and crack on, don't let it discourage you from posting more deals.
Not wanting to bash the deal because this is a good price for this processor, but I'm gonna have to be the guy that says unless you are only using your pc for gaming this is not good value for money at the moment. People will buy what they want to buy of course but personally for this price bracket I would go for the 1600 or maybe the 1600x which can be had for a little bit more than this. I think Intel will probably always have the better IPC so the single core speed is slightly better but for any other tasks the i3 just doesn’t stack up: cpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…920

Then if we go up a price bracket as said above to say the 9400f you're in the territory of the 2600 which comfortably trades blows with the 9400f (cpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…955) and is currently only £133 on Amazon amazon.co.uk/AMD…S48

If you want the best speeds out of the box or don't want to fiddle with overclocking then the 1600x or the 2600x might be the better options, but another benefit of the Ryzen line up is that the base versions can be clocked to the same speeds, with a bit of time and patience. If you don't mind a bit of tweaking then an overclocked 1600 or 2600 is without a doubt the best value for money, and this is coming from a long term intel fanboy
I stopped using Scan when they stopped the free delivery thing with one of the forums. No complaints about speed of delivery or price mor goods though
I was tempted upgrading from my mildly overclocked i3-8350K but even compared to the i5-9400 it does seem worth it for me.
