Intel is rumored to launch 9th generation processors early this October. While Intel is still working on its 10nm Cannon Lake chips, expected to launch in 2019, it is up with a surprise by improvising the existing 14-nanometer chips. According to Wccftech reports Intel will launch new Intel Core i9, i7 and i5 processors to the family of 9th generation processors on October 1st, 2018.
The new generation processors are expected to come with more number of cores and faster clock speed. The launch will include following three unlocked CPUs, while the others are expected to release in the first quarter of 2019:
- Intel Core i9-9900K (8 core /16 thread)
- Intel Core i7-9700K (8 core /8 thread)
- Intel Core i5-9600K (6 core /6 thread)
Intel Core i9-9900K will be the first mainstream desktop and also the first Intel chip to wrap in 8 cores and 16 threads. It is also expected to ship with 16 MB of L3 cache and the Intel UHD 620 graphics chip. According to leaked documents, clock speed is something you really need to check out. This Core i9 processor is going to get 3.6 GHz base clock speed but with 6/8 cores boost is rated at 4.7GHz. That is the highest frequency seen on any 8 core processor. Even Intel Core i7-9700K is expected to have 8 cores and 8 threads, while Core i5 will launch with 6 cores and 6 threads (higher clock speed than previous).
Below is the table by Wccftech, wherein they have mentioned few divulged details:
All this is the rumored information, there is no official confirmation of all these news so far. But the pieces of evidence popping up tend to support this timeline. Now we have to see when will the next generation of Intel processors launch and will the specifications of the real ones match with the rumored ones. Till then stay connected.
