Intel's 9th-Generation Core Processors Unveiled

Intel also shows 28-core Xeon W-3175X CPU

"It's the best gaming processor in the world, period." .

INTEL HAS UNVEILED a 28-core 9th-generation Xeon processor aimed squarely at folks who need some serious power to create videos and other demanding content.

Next on the agenda was an update to the Intel Core X-Series processors, including Core i7, Core i9, and Core i9 Extreme parts ranging from eight to 18 cores. Built on 14nm++ process, core i7 X-Series, Core i9 X-Series, and Core i0 Extreme are the new processors.

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.

Processors will start shipping on October 19th. They are however still on the 14nm architecture, so there is a real sense that the industry is holding its breath in anticipation of Intel launching their 10nm Cannon lake series at some point next year.

Intel 9 generation desktop processors will be headed by the i9-9900k which appears to have taken the top spot for the high-end consumer desktop offering. It has 8 cores, 16 threads and the base frequency is 3.6GHz which can be boosted up to 5.0GHz. For the ninth generation, the improvements essentially boil down to adding more cores while keeping the clock speeds and power consumption mostly the same as before. The big news here is that Intel has made the jump to eight cores in a mainstream chip for the first time.

Equipped with 8-cores and 8-threads, the Intel Core i7-9700K is a bit of an oddity compared to its predecessor. It's supported by the Intel C621 chipset, and can support six-channel DDR4 (maximum capacity 512GB at 2,666MHz).

Also new: These chips are the first to include hardware fixes for some variants of the Meltdown and Spectre flaws. It has a base clock speed of 3.1 GHz with max boosted clock speed of up to 4.3 GHz.

That's because Intel's truly new chips have been significantly delayed. We also know that Gigabyte and ASUS will be building motherboards to support this new chip.
