Intel introduces new 9th generation Core i9 processor for desktop gaming

Intel officially announces 9th generation Core CPUs

The processors are available for pre-order now at several retailers and will be widely released on October 19. During a brief demonstration following Intel's announcement, I witnessed a test machine with a Core i9-9900K and an Nvidia GTX 2080 achieve a score of 33,144 on the World of Tanks Encore in-game benchmark, while a similarly configured system with a Core i7-8700K recorded a result of 30,318. It has the fastest base clocks of all the new processors at 3.7GHz but its turbo clocks are somewhat lower at 4.3/4.6GHz for all/single cores. The parts are built on Intel's 14nm++ process, continue to use the Skylake-X architecture, and will be compatible with the existing X299 platform and LGA 2066 socket.

In the US, MSRP starts at $262 for the Core i5, $374 for the Core i7 and $488 for the Core i9. The new Core X-Series processors will begin shipping in November. The company demonstrated a single PC with a Core i9-9900K running two games in separate virtual machines simultaneously, but gaming while encoding and streaming is a more likely usage scenario. Intel has the 4-core boost at 4.8GHz while 6/8-core CPU boost reaches 4.7GHz. However, we should be seeing the 10nm-based Cannon Lake chips next year. This marks the first time in the history of the Core CPU family that a Core i7 part will lack hyperthreading, but it is also the first ever 8-core option. 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.

A planned meeting between Rosenstein and Trump was canceled and no new date was set. Chicago police officials said they doubted that conversation ever took place.

The Intel Core i7-9700K sadly comes doesn't come in at the same $359 (£389, AU$524) price the Intel Core i7-8700K did. The Core i5-9600K sports six cores paired with six threads and has a base clock speed of 3.7GHz, which can be boosted up to 4.6GHz.

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. This new high-end chip is expected to ship later this year in December. AnandTech has a rundown of all the new Z390 motherboards if you need help selecting the flawless option for your new build.
