Intel reveals '9th gen' Core i5, i7 and i9 performance processors

It has 8 cores, 16 threads and the base frequency is 3.6GHz which can be boosted up to 5.0GHz. The company has declared that the Core i9-9900K is "the best gaming processor in the world". You can pre-order the Core i5 and Core i7 on Amazon, but you'll need to go to B&H or Best Buy for the Core i9. Now, our attention turns to the 9th Gen processors themselves, with Leo acting as our man on the ground at Intel's launch event in NY today.

Intel also learned from some of its earlier mistakes and has chose to use soldered thermal interface material (STIM) on these three 9th generation Core CPUs, which should provide increased thermal conductivity between the CPU and the IHS, provide better heat dissipation, and make the de-lidding unnecessary. Instead, this new high-end Coffee Lake processor runs for a noticeably higher $374 (about £290, AU$530) price. Similarly, video editing with Adobe Premiere is up to 34 percent and 97 percent faster respectively, as per Intel's own testing. In dual-mode we have 4.8GHz, while 4-core mode hits 4.7GHz and 6/8-core mode it'll reach 4.6GHz.

Core i7-9800X: 8C/16T, 3.8/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $589 MSRP. Like their 8th generation predecessors, these CPUs will offer up to 40 PCI-E lanes. AnandTech has a rundown of all the new Z390 motherboards if you need help selecting the flawless option for your new build. There's also a new Xeon chip, the Xeon W-3175X, for use in workstation PCs to support highly specialized hardware and software such as ECC memory.

After Central Sulawesi Quake, Empowering Coastal Communities Will Save Lives
But the Sulawesi tsunami was "atypical" and could not have been simulated, said Girardet, of the U.N. The work to retrieve bodies has been hampered by lack of heavy equipment to dig them out.


For its latest 9th Generation chips Intel is going with a soldered integrated heat spreader (IHS) - which we haven't seen since Sandy Bridge - to support greater overclocking capabilities.

Anandtech doesn't believe there are any new security fixes coming in these new desktop chips, implying they'll lack the security fixes that debuted with Whiskey Lake. 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.

Whether or not Intel's 9th-gen speedup matters to you depends on how recently you've upgraded your current PC.
