Processor shipping will begin on 19 October, and unfortunately the review embargoes end on that same date.
The Core i5-9600K is a six-core SKU, also without Hyper-Threading, same 95W TDP, 3.7GHz base and 4.6GHz Turbo clock and 9MB of L3 cache.
And that where you can expect to find the new Xeon chip and it's very much a workstation rather than enthusiast part, especially as the price tag is excepted to be somewhere in the $10,000 ballpark, at least that's from going by the pricing of previous core-stuffed Xeon CPUs. It still retains the 95W TDP, works at 3.6GHz base and 5.0GHz Turbo clock, and has 2MB of L2 per core (for a total of 16MB).
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.
The new Core i7-9700K comes with eight cores paired with eight threads. 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.
The supporting act today is the Core i5-9600K, with six cores but no Hyperthreading.
We shot ourselves in the foot, says Hearts boss Craig Levein
The team put in a good performance again. "I said it before the game and I wasn't telling lies - Hearts are where they are on merit".
However, that doesn't mean that the Core i7 is a downgrade.
The Z390 platform will continue to feature the same "up to 40" PCI Express lanes that we've seen for several generations, with 16 lanes being directly connected to the CPU, and the rest coming from the chipset which is still connected via a DMI 3.0 link. AnandTech has a rundown of all the new Z390 motherboards if you need help selecting the flawless option for your new build.
Also new: These chips are the first to include hardware fixes for some variants of the Meltdown and Spectre flaws.
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.
Unveiled on Monday, the new chips come in three flavors. What do you guys think of Intel's 9th Gen series so far?
