The blue presents its competence for the Eight AMD cores.
Yesterday, Intel presented -in order- its ninth generation of consumer processors, composed of three models: Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K. Despite the bad press that has been generated in recent weeks by supply problems of 14 nm , the American company is very confident of the performance of its new processors, and has reached the point of launching slogans such as “have broken the laws of physics to make these chips “and that the Core i9 is the” best processor to play in the world “.
Despite being a new generation, what does not change is the manufacturing process, which although it is an improved version, is still 14 nm, so this step is a kind of patch until the blue is able to produce mass 10 nm processors. On the other hand, Intel’s enthusiasm for this new generation is understandable. The Core i9-990K and i7-9700K are the company’s first eight-core consumer processors. In this way, they are already on equal terms with AMD and Ryzen.
As we already knew thanks to countless rumors, the i9 supports hyperthreading, while the i7 does not. Here you have the specifications :
- Core i9-9900K: 8 cores and 16 threads, from 3.6 GHz to 5 GHz, 16 MB cache, 95 W TDP
- Core i7-9700K: 8 cores and 8 threads, from 3.6GHz to 4.9 GHz, 12 MB cache, 95 W TDP
- Core i5-9600K: 6 cores and 6 threads, 3.7 GHz to 4.6 GHz, 9 MB cache, 95 W TDP
The boost frequencies correspond to single core speeds. All three models have the same TDP, they are unlocked to perform overclocking and carry the soldered encapsulation to the chip. We discussed in our article on why it is good news that the new Intel processors have the soldier chip, but the key point is that the latter allows for better temperatures to overclock processors.
With more cores, better cooling and better frequencies to the eighth generation, and one can only wonder how much will cost the new processors. For now, advertised prices correspond to wholesale orders, but here are: USD 488 by the i9-9900K, i7-9700K for 374 dollars and 262 dollars by the i5-9600K. They can now be reserved, but they will be available as of October 19.
