Just because Intel has moved its 10-nm silicon chip to 2020 again does not mean that the fans of the processors can not look forward to this year. And no, they do not have to wait for the Cascade Lake processors yet to be discovered. As early as October, Intel will introduce its 9-Gen Core lineup, which is still based on the 14nm Coffee Lake architecture and will bring 8 cores to the mainstream market for the first time.
The very detailed documents acquired by WCCFTech show some major core improvements, at least to lines i9 and i7. At the top is the Core i9-9900K with 8 cores and 16 threads, the first for the mainstream market. Starting at a base clock of 3.6 GHz, the processor can be increased 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 ,
However, some consumers prefer the Core i7-9700K, Intel's first 8-core processor for the mainstream market, at least as far as the i7 is concerned. It has the same basic clock frequency of 3.6 GHz as the 9th generation Core i9, but has lower maximum speeds in boost mode. This means a relatively low 4.6 GHz for 6 to 8 core processes.
Not all of the ninth generation nuclei are so exciting. For example, the Core i5-9600K still has 6 cores and is almost identical to the eighth-generation Core i5-8600K. The only difference between the two is the higher basic speed of 3.7 GHz in the upcoming processor and also higher boost speeds. On the top it has at least the same 95 W TDP as its predecessor.
Of course, as the table above shows, these three are not the only 9th generation Intel cores. However, these three unencrypted processors will be launched on October 1st. The others have to wait for their debut next year.
