Intel 9th Gen Processors Said To Launch On October 1st

Come October, you can expect to see a refreshed take on Intel's eighth-gen Coffee Lake S CPU architecture, with the successor chips sporting an improved 14-nanometre process allowing for more cores and faster clockspeeds, and likely a bit more energy-efficiency. It is reported to bring new Core i5, i7, and i9 unlocked SKU family along with the Z390 series chips on October 1 which will be marketed as Intel's 9th generation family of processors. Among the initial releases is the hugely anticipated Core i9-9900K.

The Core i7-9700K, on the other hand, would be the first mainstream 8 core processor. The Core i7 has a 12MB cache, the same base clock as the Core i9 but a 4.9-GHz boost clock (single core), and the Core i5 has 9MB cache, 3.7GHz base clock and up to 4.6GHz boost (single core). It may also feature 16 MB of L3 cache and Intel UHD 620 graphics. This chip will have hyperthreading disabled for a candid eight cores and eight threads. That means a relatively lower 4.6 GHz when doing 6 to 8 core processes.


Less exciting would be a range of mid-tier Core i5-9600K processor with six cores, six threads, a 3.7GHz base clock and a 4.3GHz boost with all cores (4.6GHz with one).

Multiple motherboard vendors have confirmed that upcoming 9000-series of Intel processors will be compatible with existing Z3xx series motherboards. Not only will this be the first mainstream desktop Core i9, but it also comes with 8 cores and 16 threads.
