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

Obviously any Intel processor launch is major news, but this is a particularly big splash seeing as the Core i9-9900K represents the first mainstream Core i9 offering sporting 8-cores and 16-threads.

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. It commands an asking price of $399.99 (around £305, AU$565).

The top-end Core CPU is the i9-9980XE, with 18 cores and 36 threads.

At the lower end, we have the i5-9600K, replacing the current i5-8600K. Both processors maintain the same 95W TDP as the i7-8700K.

Intel today officially announced the first round of 9 generation Core processors, and given all the leaks that have occurred over the past few months, there weren't too many surprises. Switching to solder should make the delicate process of delidding less appealing on these new chips. The rated TDP is 95W, and Intel points out that compared to the Core i7-8700K, the new Core i9-9900K has more cores with similar frequencies running within the same thermal envelope. It's a 255W processor with 68 PCIe lanes, a 38.5MB Smart Cache and six-channel DDR4 memory support with up to 512GB at 2666MHz, and four channels of DDR4-2666 memory.

Intel has taken the wraps off three new 9 Gen desktop Core CPUs for gamers and mainstream users, as well as a new range of Core X-Series CPUs and also a Xeon consumer workstation CPU for extremely demanding content creators.

These processors are a direct competitor to AMD's Ryzen 7 line released earlier this year.

We don't see the new chips listed on Amazon or Newegg just yet, but preorders open today, with availability starting on October 19. No word on the rest of the 9th generation lineup, but we expect them to launch at the same time as the i9 processor.
