It was reported that Intel would soon formalize the 9th generation desktop core processor product line. The latest rumors circulating say that the announcement date will be October 1st.
The 9th generation Core processor will continue to use the 14nm fabrication process. This is because the 10nm process for the “Coffee Lake” chip architecture is postponed until 2019.
However, the 9th generation Intel Core processor family remains attractive. What’s more, Intel is expected to open a series of new introductions through high-end processor models that are open multipliers (K series) for over clocking.
At the top of the 9th generation Core processor family there is the Core i9-9900K which is estimated to have 8 CPU cores (16 threads), 16MB L3 cache, and an integrated GPU Intel UHD 620.
As a flagship processor available in Intel’s desktop processor line, the Core i9-9900K is said to have a 3.6 GHz clock with a 4.7 GHz turbo speed when all cores are active, or up to 5 GHz when only one or two are used.
In addition, based on information summarized by from WCCFTech, there will be also other models such as Intel Core i7-9700K (8 cores / 16 threads) and Core i5-9600K (6 cores / 6 threads ) both of which have open multipliers.
After these three K processor series, other models of the 9th generation Intel Core family were called to follow in the first quarter of 2018.
They included Core i5-9600 (6 cores / 6 threads), Core i5-9500 (6 cores / 6 threads) , Core i5-9400 (6 cores / 6 threads), Core i5-9400T (6 cores / 6 threads), Core i3-9100 (4 cores / 4 threads), Core i3-9000 (4 cores / 4 threads) and Core i3-9000T (4 core / 4 thread).
