Intel unveils 9th generation CPU, calls it "best gaming processor"

Intel Announces First 9th-Generation Core Processors

Intel Core i9 X-Series

That last chip, which replaces the previous-gen Core i7-8700K, is especially noteworthy because it's the first time a mainstream consumer CPU from Intel has hit the 5GHz mark. During a brief demonstration following Intel's announcement, I witnessed a test machine with a Core i9-9900K and an Nvidia GTX 2080 achieve a score of 33,144 on the World of Tanks Encore in-game benchmark, while a similarly configured system with a Core i7-8700K recorded a result of 30,318.

Take a look at our take on Intel vs AMD processors. Despite the nomenclature, these new CPUs are still built on a 14-nanometer manufacturing process, albeit optimized (14nm++), serving as sort of a stopgap until 10nm Cannon Lake chips arrive in volume at the end of next year. While both processors have eight physical cores, only the i9-9900K will feature Hyper-threading allowing for a 16-thread configuration.

The lack of Hyper-Threading on the i7-9700K will provide quite the interesting performance comparison with the current flagship 6C/12T i7-8700K. Comparatively, the Intel Core i7-8700K starts at a tick higher 3.7GHz base frequency but can't go almost as fast with its maximum 4.9GHz boost clock.

There were plenty of rumors and leaks regarding them prior to the launch event today but here they are: Intel has finally announced the 9th Generation Intel Core processor lineup for the desktop market.

Nobel prize in economics announced in Sweden
Yale economist William Nordhaus is being recognized "for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis". The award, which concluded this year's series of Nobel prizes , came into existence about seven decades after the others.


Addressing one of the most common complaints from enthusiasts about recent Intel processors, the 9th generation series of processors will come with what Intel is referring to as "Solder Thermal Interface Material" (STIM).

Why it matters: Intel announced a smattering of new processors on Monday spanning multiple product segments. With a price of $1,979, it has a base clock speed of 3GHz and a top boost speed of 4.5GHz, along with a 24.75MB Smart Cache and up to 68 PCIe 3.0 lanes.

The i9-9900K is available for pre-order today, and will launch on October 19th. What do you guys make of Intel's new 9th Gen series?
