The worst of Intel 9th gen you actually call it the best?Do you not know that 9600k has known throttling issues resulting in serious stuttering in certain games resulting in unusually low lowest frame rates in quite a few games,don't believe me check youtube for 9600k stuttering.Also retail box i9 9900k will normally oc better than 9700K & 9600K because its a flagship cpu & is actually binned(that fancy box is not just for looks)Also only 9700 & 9900K are true 9th gen cpus since they are not rebranded cpus like 9600K & lower range, apparently you are pretty clueless about intel 9th gen cpus.

but have you looked at the price tag difference of the fps gain between a Ryzen 3600 or 3700x and the 9900k.

Hold on a minute. 9th Gen entire line is a refresh of the 8th Gen since it's listed as a Coffee Lake refresh. So how exactly is 9900K and 9700K a true 9th Gen? All the 9th Gen got the security fixes for Spectre and Meltdown. If the 9600K is a rebrand, then it shouldn't have those fixes. Just because it got same core count, iGPU, cache as 8600K, it doesn't make it a rebrand. That's like calling Zen+ a rebrand of Zen.
