Intel Announces First 9th-Generation Core Processors

The Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K are Intel's first mainstream 8-core processors.

The flagship Intel Core i9-9900K has a base clock 100 MHz lower than the i7-8700K but features the same 5.0 GHz single-core Turbo Boost clock as the i7-8086K. This processor has base and boost speeds of 3.6GHz and 4.9GHz, with a 12MB cache. Despite the nomenclature, these new CPUs are still built on a 14-nanometer manufacturing process, albeit optimized (14nm++), serving as sort of a stopgap until 10nm Cannon Lake chips arrive in volume at the end of next year.

In addition to its the Core i9-9900K processor, Intel also announced two other 9th gen desktop CPUs with the Core i5-9600K and Core i7-9700K.

The supporting act today is the Core i5-9600K, with six cores but no Hyperthreading.

Intel is using a Solder Thermal Interface Material (STIM) on the new 9900K, something that should make some people happy with integrated USB 3.1 gen 2 and integrated Intel Wireless-AC connectivity. The same 95W TDP is applied to the 9600K. Leading the new group of products is the Intel Core i9-9900K and yes, it will indeed come with that multi-sided translucent packaging.

Intel has wrapped up its Fall Desktop Launch Event in NY.

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 main highlight of the show were the company's new 9th Gen Core K-series CPU, including the top-of-the-line Core i9-9900K processor.

We are now at a launch event for this processor, and will share further details if and when we can. All three chips are available to pre-order today, with prices going from $262 to $488.
