Written by Bibhu Prasad Bal

Intel unveils its latest processors in the Intel’s “Fall Desktop Launch Event”. The processor specialist, Intel announces its latest Core i9-9900K processor. Intel says Core i9-9900K is “the best gaming processor in the world”.

The company also announced its new 9th Gen Core chips. You may say that the next generation processors are here.

Intel has been making high-end processors from decades. The company is crafting the processors and making as of the need of customers.

Let’s take a deep dive into the latest Core i9-9900K processors.

Core i9-9900K processor

The i9-9900K offers eight cores and 16 threads, clocked at the base frequency of 3.6 GHz. It can be boosted up to 5.0 GHz.

Intel Core i9-9900K one of the company’s first mainstream octa-core processors. The other one is Core i7-9700K.

This also features the highest 16-thread count in the Coffee Lake Refresh lineup.

Intel’s new line of processors features a soldered integrated heat spreader (IHS). This new soldered-based thermal interface material should help immensely with heat dissipation and achieving higher overclock speeds.

Core i9-9900K

As previously rumored, the Core i9-9900K supports Hyper-Threading but the Core i7-9700K does not.

According to TechRadar, Intel Core i9-9900K paired with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 achieved a score of 33,108 in World of Tanks Encore’s benchmark test.

It also tests the processor in PUBG at 1080p and Ultra quality settings. It experiences the game at an awesome 175fps. They also tested the processors in World of Tanks Encore. This also running smoothly at a glorious result.

9th generation processors

Along with the new Core i9-9900K processor, Intel is also announcing new 9th Gen Core i5 and Core i7 models.

The i7-9700K has eight cores and eight threads. This has base 3.6 GHz clock speed (which can be boosted to 4.9 GHz).

The i5-9600K has six cores and six threads. It has a base 3.7 GHz speed (which can be boosted up to 4.6 GHz).

Core i9-9900K

Even Intel is celebrating the glory of 9th generation processor, there is something not modified. The new chips are still based off Intel’s existing 14nm processors. Intel has been using this technology from 5th Gen Broadwell chips back in 2014. We are eagerly waiting for the next generation 10nm processor.

But we have to wait till 2019 for the next generation 10nm Cannon Lake chips.

These new 9th generation chips bring more cores, faster clock speeds, better cooling, as compared to Intel’s 8th generation lineup.

Core X-Series processors

The company also announced an updated lineup of its Core X-Series processors. The first announcement was in 2017. This updated Core X-Series consists of new Core i7 X-Series, Core i9 X-Series, and Core i9 Extreme processors. These are built on Intel’s 14nm++ process. These are still based on the Skylake X design.

Core i9-9900K

If you are a professional user and need more firepower, Intel has something for you. It announced a new 28 core and 56 thread unlocked Intel Xeon W-3175X processor. The Base clock speed is 3.1 GHz and it can be boosted up to 4.3GHz.

Pricing

Intel’s pricing for trays of 1,000 CPUs comes in at $488 for the Core i9-9900K, $374 for the Core i7-9700K, and $262 for the Core i5-9600K. Note that those prices are for bulk orders. Individual pricing may vary a little higher.

Preorders for the 9th Gen chips has been opened. The processors set to ship on October 19th.

Conclusion

Intel has announced the latest 9th generation chips. The no one attraction is the Core i9-9900K. Intel says that it is “the best gaming processor in the world”.

The chips are now intelligent than ever. Let’s see how it performs in the other benchmark tests.
