Intel reveals new 9th gen Core CPUs, led by Core i9-9900K

  • Intel Announces First 9th-Generation Core Processors

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.

Featuring 8-cores and 16-threads capability, Intel stated that the Core i9-9900K is the company's first ever mainstream chip with such setup.

Intel hopes the new X-Series processors change that behavior, at least for creative types, by offering between eight and 18 cores, up to 68 PCIe lanes and caches up to 24.75 MB.

Under these two processors is the 6C/6T chip in the new Core i5-9600K, with 9MB of L3 cache and a higher base CPU clock of 3.7GHz.

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. All three of these processors will apparently work on all Z300-series motherboards, so those who bought into Z370 a year ago will be able to drop a new CPU in after a BIOS update. Similarly, video editing with Adobe Premiere is up to 34 percent and 97 percent faster respectively, as per Intel's own testing.

Core i7-9800X: 8C/16T, 3.8/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $589 MSRP.

A 28-core Xeon was also announced.

All of these new 9th Gen processors have hardware mitigation against Meltdown Variant 3, the security bug that we heard so much about back in January.

Intel will also sell even more powerful Core X (for "extreme") CPUs-which are really Skylake-era designs-with many more cores starting in November.

KitGuru Says: We'll be talking more about Intel's new CPUs over the next few weeks, in addition to the slew of motherboards set to roll out.

Update: Sharp-eyed readers confirmed something I'd missed - Intel's slides do note that 9th Generation CPUs are protected at the same level as Intel's Whiskey Lake.

To justify this ambitious claim, Intel did in-depth benchmarks with AMD's high-end processors, and the combination of eight cores with hyperthreading plus a maximum speed of 5 GHz when overclocked delivers significant performance gains. Are any of you thinking about upgrading?
