Intel's New 9th-Gen Core Lineup Boasts 5GHz Clock Speeds

  • Intel Announces First 9th-Generation Core Processors

We will be updating this post with more details regarding the new 9th Gen Intel Core processors once we go through the in-depth information provided by Intel. "Intel said that the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K processor achieved up to 309 frames per second (FPS) on Rainbow Six: Siege; up to 224 FPS on Fortnite; up to 440 FPS on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive; and up to 221 FPS on PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds", wrote VentureBeat. Instead, this new high-end Coffee Lake processor runs for a noticeably higher $374 (about £290, AU$530) price. It features a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.9GHz.

On the mainstream side of things, we have the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K and Core i5-9600K.

The flagship Intel Core i9-9900K has a base clock 100 MHz lower than the i7-8700K but features the same 5.0 GHz single-core Turbo Boost clock as the i7-8086K.

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.

Intel hopes the new X-Series processors change that behavior, at least for creative types, by offering between eight and 18 cores, up to 68 PCIe lanes and caches up to 24.75 MB. Some users have taken to ripping off the IHS, a process known as delidding, to replace Intel's thermal interface material with liquid metal for better temps.

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. All these new processors come with hardware fixes for the Meltdown Variant 3 and L1 Terminal Fault issues.

Intel will also sell even more powerful Core X (for "extreme") CPUs-which are really Skylake-era designs-with many more cores starting in November. That latter point is welcome news for enthusiasts who have criticized Intel for using lower quality grease for the past few generations. And new Xeon workstation parts-with up to 28 cores and 56 threads-will debut in December.

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