Intel 9th generation processors announced

006-intel-performance-unleashed-2018-cnet

The Core i7-9700K is an eight-core / 8-thread CPU, with a 3.6GHz base clock and 4.9GHz Turbo, with just 12MB of L3 (1.5MB per core) for $374, while the Core i5-9600K is a six-core / six-thread chip with a 3.7GHz base clock, 4.6GHz Turbo, and the same 12MB of L3 (1.5MB per core) for $295.

For heavy-users, Intel has introduced the latest lineup of Core-X series processors as well.

Intel has published the first gaming benchmarks for its new Intel Core i9 9900K processor, however it appears that these benchies are a bit misleading.

The new chips might have the "9th generation" tagline, but in reality, Intel's marketing speak doesn't quite cut it; the chips are yet another refinement of the 14nm manufacturing process that Intel has been using for the last few years.

Intel also learned from some of its earlier mistakes and has made a decision to use soldered thermal interface material (STIM) on these three 9th generation Core CPUs, which should provide increased thermal conductivity between the CPU and the IHS, provide better heat dissipation, and make the de-lidding unnecessary. However, we should be seeing the 10nm-based Cannon Lake chips next year.




However, that doesn't mean that the Core i7 is a downgrade.

Joining this flagship model are the Core i7-9700K and the Core i5-9600K.

The Intel Core i7-9700K sadly comes doesn't come in at the same $359 (£389, AU$524) price the Intel Core i7-8700K did.

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. These have up to 8 cores and 16 threads, clocked at up to 5.0 GHz.

Intel also announced new 9th Generation Core i5 and Core i7 variants. For example, the Core i9-9980XE will offer 18 cores (and 36 threads) with a maximum turbo-boost speed of 4.5 GHz for about $1980. The i5-9600K has six cores with no hyperthreading, is a direct replacement to the i5-8600K, and will feature faster frequencies. We also know that Gigabyte and ASUS will be building motherboards to support this new chip.
