Just because Intel has yet delayed its 10nm silicon by 2020, if all goes well, it does not mean that fans of the processors do not want anything to look forward to this year. And no, they do not have to wait for them to be unveiled Cascade Lake processors. Already in October, Intel is expected to announce its 9th Gen Core lineup, still at the 14nm Coffee Lake architecture, which will for the first time bring 8 cores to the usual market.
The highly detailed documents acquired by WCCFTech reveal some significant core upgrades, at least to the i9 and i7 lines. Top is Core i9-9900K, with 8 cores and 16 threads, one for the common market. Starting with a 3.6GHz base watch, the processor can be amplified to 5.0GHz in single and dual kernels, 4.8GHz in quad-core ops and 4.7GHz for 6 to 8 core processes.
Some consumers may prefer Core i7-9700K, which is also Intel's first 8 core processor for the common market, at least as far as i7 goes. It has the same 3.6GHz baseblock as the 9th gen Core i9, but has lower max speeds when boosted. That means a relatively lower 4.6 GHz when doing 6 to 8 core processes.
Not all ninth core genes are exciting. Core i5-9600K, for example, still has 6 cores and is almost identical to the 8th gen Core i5-8600K. The only difference between the two is the higher 3.7 GHz base speed in the upcoming processor and even higher boost speeds. On the upside it has at least the same 95 W TDP as its predecessor.
As shown in the table above, these three are not the only ninth genes Intel Cores, of course. However, these three unlocked processors are slated for launch on October 1st. The others must wait for Q1 next year for debut.
