Details of Intel’s 9th-generation Core desktop processors leak


Intel is reportedly all set to refresh its range of Core processors by launching the ninth-generation models as early as October.

Some consumers, however, might prefer the Core i7-9700K, which is also Intel's first 8-core processor for the mainstream market, at least as far as the i7 goes.

According to WCCFTech's sources, October 1 will see the launch of three next-gen unlocked CPUs, with the rest of the chips arriving in the first quarter of 2019.

Looking at the Intel Core i9-9900K first, it can run at a turbo boost speed of 5GHz on one or two cores.

Some Intel documentation surfaced on the pending Core i9 9900K and i7 9700K, while most information was already publicly available, the slides also show the various turbo clock frequencies, and they certainly are interesting.

Come October 1st, Intel will unveil its 9th generation of chips, a new report reveals. The upcoming chip is said to include 16MB of L3 cache and Intel's UHD 620 graphics. Intel notably launched the Core i9-8950HK as the first Core i9 processor for notebooks in April, following the the high-end desktop Core i9 models as part of its Core X-series previous year.

All three processors have a TDP of 95W, with the only other key differences being the cache and price. It has the same 3.6 GHz base clock as the 9th gen Core i9 but has lower max speeds when boosted. The report notes that Asus, ASRock, MSI, and Gigabyte have all confirmed support for Intel's 9000 series on the entire 300-series motherboards lineup.
