Intel Announces First 9th-Generation Core Processors

Hardware Unboxed concluded that the Intel Core i9 9900K will be faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Intel Core i7 8700K, however the performance gap between them will not be as big as Intel claims in its official benchmarks. 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.

The firm made a major change in this year's "Coffee Lake R" chips.

Intel has taken the wraps off three new 9 Gen desktop Core CPUs for gamers and mainstream users, as well as a new range of Core X-Series CPUs and also a Xeon consumer workstation CPU for extremely demanding content creators. This marks the first time in the history of the Core CPU family that a Core i7 part will lack hyperthreading, but it is also the first ever 8-core option. 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. It has a base clock of 3.7GHz and a boost clock of 4.7GHz. The Core i5-9600K sports six cores paired with six threads and has a base clock speed of 3.7GHz, which can be boosted up to 4.6GHz.

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

Joseph McCarthy used unfounded allegations to accuse people of being communists without firm evidence, ruining their reputations. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them.

Processor shipping will begin on 19 October, and unfortunately the review embargoes end on that same date. We also have up to 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes on tap, with Intel Optane memory and Optane SSD support a given, as well as Thunderbolt 3. We don't know if this is a refresh of Skylake-X at the moment, but we are hoping to have that question answered soon. 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.

All these new processors come with hardware fixes for the Meltdown Variant 3 and L1 Terminal Fault issues.

That's because Intel's truly new chips have been significantly delayed.

Whether or not Intel's 9th-gen speedup matters to you depends on how recently you've upgraded your current PC.
