The RCP (1K) price is set at $488 for the Core i9-9900K, $374 for the Core i7-9700K, and $262 for the Core i5-9600K.
All three 9th generation Core SKUs support 2666MHz DDR4 memory and come with the same GT2 integrated graphics as the Intel's 8th generation, with 24 EUs and maximum GPU clock of up to 1200MHz (1150MHz for the Core i5-9600K).
Intel has published the first gaming benchmarks for its new Intel Core i9 9900K processor, however it appears that these benchies are a bit misleading. Built on 14nm++ process, core i7 X-Series, Core i9 X-Series, and Core i0 Extreme are the new processors.
Intel has taken the wraps off three new 9 Gen desktop Core CPUs for gamers and mainstream users, as well as a new range of Core X-Series CPUs and also a Xeon consumer workstation CPU for extremely demanding content creators.
Based on Intel's internal testing, the new chips offer the sort of performance improvement you'd expect from an incremental architecture update. The i5-9600K, has six cores, six threads with a base 3.7 GHz speed which can be boosted up to 4.6 GHz.
Intel today officially announced the first round of 9 generation Core processors, and given all the leaks that have occurred over the past few months, there weren't too many surprises. The Core i7 model interestingly has eight cores, compared to six with the Core i7-8700K, but this model lacks Hyper-Threading which means that the total thread count has actually declined from 12 to eight.
Key senators undecided as Senate poised to vote on Kavanaugh
Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump to succeed retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was seen as a swing vote on the court. He also said the allegations against him were part of what he called a leftwing conspiracy to keep him off the court.
Core i7-9800X: 8C/16T, 3.8/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $589 MSRP.
It's important to note that the Intel's latest hardware includes fixes for the controversial and critical Meltdown Variant 3 and L1 Terminal Fault issues. The Core i9-9900K has eight cores and 16 threads, clocked at 3.6GHZ and up to 5GHz with a 16MB cache and 95W TDP.
The i9-9900K is available for pre-order today, and will launch on October 19th. It has a base clock speed of 3.1 GHz with max boosted clock speed of up to 4.3 GHz.
Alongside these new processors comes the launch of a new chipset from Intel, Z390.
You can preorder the new chips now and Intel will start delivering them on October 19.
