Intel 9th generation processors announced

After many months of leaks and rumours, today Intel officially announced its 9th generation of processors, alongside the Z390 motherboard chipset. Intel is refreshing its 9 Generation Core CPU family for the mainstream market.

"The Intel Core i9-9900K is the best gaming processor in the world", the firm stated at its press event. In addition, they also sport slightly higher boost clock speeds if you enable Turbo Boost 3.0, which will get them all up to 4.5GHz with the exception of the Core i9-9820X, which gets to 4.2GHz. It has a base clock speed limit of 3.6GHz and can be boosted up to a maximum of 4.9GHz.

Also new: These chips are the first to include hardware fixes for some variants of the Meltdown and Spectre flaws.

According to Intel's official information, the 9th generation K-series CPUs will be on retail/e-tail shelves on October 19th and reviews should be up around that date as well.

The six-core Core i5-9600K and 8-core Core i7-9700K will also be launching the same day. That last chip, which replaces the previous-gen Core i7-8700K, is especially noteworthy because it's the first time a mainstream consumer CPU from Intel has hit the 5GHz mark. There are increased frequencies and cache sizes as well as a new solder-based thermal interface material (TIM) between the cores and the heat spreader to help with overclocking efforts. But the new Xeon has 56 threads to go alongside its 28 cores, and therefore is geared up for multi-threaded workloads that content creators tend to use. The 1-core CPU boost is 4.6GHz, 2-core at 4.5GHz, 4-core at 4.4GHz and 6-core at 4.3GHz.

That's because Intel's truly new chips have been significantly delayed. No pricing details have been revealed for this chip yet but it's obviously is not going to be cheap. AnandTech has a rundown of all the new Z390 motherboards if you need help selecting the ideal option for your new build. Some motherboards are created to take advantage of dual power supply units and up to 32 VRMs which are essential to keep the Skylake-X flagship chips stable as they're extremely power hungry.
