Details of Intel’s 9th-generation Core desktop processors leak

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

Intel's new Core i9-9900K: 8C/16T with all-core 4.7GHz boost

Wccftech claims that Intel will introduce its Core i9, i7, and i5 chips on October 1st. They won't be the company's Cannon Lake chips based on the 10nm process as they have been delayed until next year. This would be an incredible feat, with Intel making sure the 9900K is the best 8C/16T processor on the market. Starting out with a base clock of 3.6 GHz, the processor can be boosted to 5.0 GHz in single and dual cores, 4.8 GHz in quad-core ops, and 4.7 GHz for 6 to 8 core processes.

Sources close to Wccftech have reported that three of Intel's flagship desktop processors in the 9000 series will land on October 1, with the remainder of the family being released in the first quarter of 2019. Among the initial releases is the hugely anticipated Core i9-9900K. The upcoming chip is said to include 16MB of L3 cache and Intel's UHD 620 graphics.

Intel's soon the be most high-end desktop processor the Core i9-9900K is the same 8-core part, yet now with HyperThreading enabled (16-threads). Similarly, the i7-9700K chip will be Intel's first mainstream desktop CPU with up to 4.6GHz speed across cores, but you get just 12MB of L3 cache and only eight threads. However, it can turbo at 4.6 GHz maximum on all cores. The base frequency is 3.6GHz boosting up to 4.9GHz for two cores. Z390 chipset motherboards are set to appear from the major motherboard manufacturers, but Asus, ASRock, MSI, and Gigabyte have already confirmed 9th gen Core chips will be supported on existing 300 series motherboards.

The leaked document confirmed that unlocked SKUs will arrive first, followed by the rest of the ninth-generation Core processors.
