Intel introduced the ninth generation of processors
Yesterday, 8 October, Intel introduced the 9th generation of Intel Core processors. In addition, the company has updated a series chip Core X and Intel Xeon processors. All the new models of processors built on 14-nanometer technology.
Intel introduced the first Core i9-9900K, which the company says is “the best gaming processor in the world.” This processor works on eight cores and 16 threads, with a frequency of 3.6 GHz which can be overclocked to 5.0 GHz.
Then the company announced a 9 generation of processors Core i5 and Core i7 eight-core i7-9700K with eight threads and a clock speed of 3.6 GHz (overclocked to 4.9 GHz), and hexa-core i5-9600K with six streams and a frequency of 3.7 GHz (overclocking to 4.6 GHz).
The new chips are still built on 14-nm technology, which the company uses since the release of processors 5th generation Broadwell in 2014. It is unclear why Intel continues to postpone production of 10-nm chips Cannon Lake.
Pre-order processors, the 9th generation has already begun, and in sale they will appear on October 19. Intel Core i9-9900K is $ 488, i7-9700K – 373 of the dollar, while the i5-9600K – 262 dollars.
The company also updated series Core processors, X-Series (first released in 2017).
Intel unveils seven new chips Core X, which will go on sale in November. Among them:
- Core i9 Extreme – Core i9-9980XE – 18 cores / 36 threads with a clock speed of 4.5 GHz. Price: $ 1, 979.
- Core i9 X-Series in five variants, ranging from 10-core Intel Core i9-9820X up to 16-core / 32-Core streaming i9-9960X. Price: from 889 to 1 684 USD
- Core i7 X-Series – Core i7-9800X – 8 cores / 16 threads. Price: $ 589.
For professional users, Intel has released a new 28-core Intel Xeon W-3175X. The base clock speed is 3.1 GHz, which can be increased to 4.3 GHz. The novelty will go on sale late this year. Price yet to be announced.
