Intel reveals '9th gen' Core i5, i7 and i9 performance processors

035-intel-performance-unleashed-2018-cnet

The six-core Core i5-9600K and 8-core Core i7-9700K will also be launching the same day. Notably, Intel is saying that the brand new Core i9-9900K is "hands-down, the world's best processor for gaming". Comparatively, the Intel Core i7-8700K starts at a tick higher 3.7GHz base frequency but can't go almost as fast with its maximum 4.9GHz boost clock.

Alongside, they also launched new 9th Gen Core i7 and Core i5 processors, too.

Processors will start shipping on October 19th.

The company might update to the new 10nm manufacturing process standard next year with its highly anticipated Cannon Lake chips. It has a base clock speed limit of 3.6GHz and can be boosted up to a maximum of 4.9GHz.

Intel has announced its next-generation desktop processors, and 9th generation core chips in an event held yesterday.

The i7-9700K will feature eight cores without hyperthreading, giving it 3.6 GHz at base and a turbo boost of 4.9 GHz on a single core. The Core i7-9700K will have 8 cores, but lack the hyperthreading capability of its bigger brother. B&H Photo, for example, has the Core i9-9900K listed at $529.99, the Core i7-9700K at $399, and the Core i5-9600K at $279.99. This is quite a different configuration to its predecessor, the Core i7-8700K with 6C/12T but the same base Coffee Lake architecture.

The Z390 platform will continue to feature the same "up to 40" PCI Express lanes that we've seen for several generations, with 16 lanes being directly connected to the CPU, and the rest coming from the chipset which is still connected via a DMI 3.0 link. The Basin Falls Refresh is expected to launch around October-November. Everything up to the Core i5-9400 comes in a T-series variant, and the i5 models are six cores and six threads, while the i3 models are four cores and four threads. That latter point is welcome news for enthusiasts who have criticized Intel for using lower quality grease for the past few generations. The new CPUs are backward-compatible with the Z370 chipset as well, so you won't need to worry about being locked out of this upgrade if you have an older motherboard.
