Intel 9th Gen Processors Said To Launch On October 1st

Core i9-9900K and i7-9700K turbo clocks revealed - 4.7 GHz with all eight cores

Core i9-9900K and i7-9700K turbo clocks revealed - 4.7 GHz with all eight cores

News that Intel was delaying its 10-nanometer processors came as a blow to many, but it appears we don't have long to wait for the new Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 parts, which are built on the 14nm++ node. They will apparently be branded as 9th generation processors. It will feature a base clock of 3.6GHz and will be able to reach 5GHz when boosted during single and dual-core processing scenarios.

According to WCCFTech's sources, October 1 will see the launch of three next-gen unlocked CPUs, with the rest of the chips arriving in the first quarter of 2019.

The Core i7-9700K, on the other hand, would be the first mainstream 8 core processor. Please refer to the table for the turbo speeds with regard to the Core i7-9700K.




If you're looking to buy or build a new gaming rig, then it's probably worth holding out until October to start deciding on components. It has the same 3.6 GHz base clock as the 9th gen Core i9 but has lower max speeds when boosted. The first ones available will be the most powerful and therefore the most expensive, but they should offer the most credible competition for AMD's Ryzen refresh and potentially help steal a little of the thunder of AMD's monstrous second-generation Threadripper CPUs which are now just days away from release.

Multiple motherboard vendors have confirmed that upcoming 9000-series of Intel processors will be compatible with existing Z3xx series motherboards. It will have 9MB of L3 cache, and clock speeds ranging from 3.7GHz to 4.6GHz.
