Intel's 9th-Generation Core Processors Unveiled

Intel Announces First 9th-Generation Core Processors

This processor ships in a new dodecahedron-shaped box which Intel thinks buyers will want to show off.

Intel says the new Core i9-9900K processor is created to deliver the best gaming performance in the world. "The results are absolutely clear". The company has declared that the Core i9-9900K is "the best gaming processor in the world". 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.

Hardware Unboxed concluded that the Intel Core i9 9900K will be faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Intel Core i7 8700K, however the performance gap between them will not be as big as Intel claims in its official benchmarks. And all the chips in question have soldered TIMs, including the Core i5-9600K, which should give overclockers a slightly larger chance at hitting frequency targets.

Lil Wayne Releases ‘Tha Carter V’
Perhaps that's the biggest surprise of all: The long saga of "The Carter V " actually has a happy ending. Young Money now belongs exclusively to Wayne , and will continue to be distributed by Republic Records.

Intel on Monday also introduced more than half a dozen Core X-series processors. 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.

Despite the launch of a new chipset in the form of Z390, these new 9th generation chipsets will maintain compatibility with all previous 300-series Intel chipsets, such as Z370 through updates that will be made available by motherboard manufacturers. Finally, the Core i5-9600K is the most affordable of the bunch, delivering 6C/6T with a 3.7/4.6GHz base/boost speed. It includes 8 cores and 16 threads, and it's the only one of the three with hyperthreading. We also have up to 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes on tap, with Intel Optane memory and Optane SSD support a given, as well as Thunderbolt 3. This new high-end chip is expected to ship later this year in December.

At an event hosted in New York City this morning, Intel officially announced the launch if its 9th-generation mainstream CPU lineup. AnandTech has a rundown of all the new Z390 motherboards if you need help selecting the ideal option for your new build.
