Intel 9th generation processors announced

035-intel-performance-unleashed-2018-cnet

Equipped with 8-cores and 8-threads, the Intel Core i7-9700K is a bit of an oddity compared to its predecessor.

The Intel Core i9 9900K processor is aimed at desktop-based enthusiasts and Intel is claiming that this is the "the best gaming processor in the world". Intel cranked the hype dial to 11, stating that it's "breaking the laws of physics to bring you these parts" and trumpeting the Core i9-9900K as "the best gaming processor in the world, period".

Alongside these new processors comes the launch of a new chipset from Intel, Z390.

Intel also learned from some of its earlier mistakes and has made a decision to use soldered thermal interface material (STIM) on these three 9th generation Core CPUs, which should provide increased thermal conductivity between the CPU and the IHS, provide better heat dissipation, and make the de-lidding unnecessary. 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. In dual-mode we have 4.8GHz, while 4-core mode hits 4.7GHz and 6/8-core mode it'll reach 4.6GHz.

Core i9-9940X: 14C/28T, 3.3/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $1,387 MSRP.

Chill in the air as Pompeo meets Chinese counterparts in Beijing
Kim and Mr Pompeo agreed to arrange another summit between the Korean leader and US President Donald Trump "as soon as possible". Trump said it resulted in a " special bond " between the two leaders and he was optimistic about a denuclearized future.

Core i7-9800X: 8C/16T, 3.8/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $589 MSRP.

The Z390 platform will continue to feature the same "up to 40" PCI Express lanes that we've seen for several generations, with 16 lanes being directly connected to the CPU, and the rest coming from the chipset which is still connected via a DMI 3.0 link. We also know that Gigabyte and ASUS will be building motherboards to support this new chip.

Intel has announced new CPUs that it says have mitigated some of the Meltdown and Spectre design flaws that expose users to information leakage attacks.

Finally, Intel also announced the Xeon W-3175X workstation chip with an incredible 28 cores.

Even the 9th generation designation is a sign of Intel's excitement (or marketing savvy, you decide). 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. Are any of you thinking about upgrading?
