The previous week we got to know from a leak that Intel is planning a refresh over there 8th Generation CoffeeLake processors with the 9th Generation. It implied from the beginning that it won’t be of a significant change, at least when it comes to core architecture.
Today we came up with a new update that’s been flooding over the internet. We believed that only the Core i5-9600K would suffer the lack of HyperThreading but the scenario has changed somehow to this. Intel will launch these processors instead:
- Core i9-9900K with 8 Cores and 16 Threads,
- Core i7-9700K with 8 Cores and 8 Threads,
- Core i5-9600K with 6 Cores and 6 Threads.
Perhaps it seems from the above data that only the top tier model of i9-9900K would only have HyperThreading enabled.
This leak also confirms our previous data about the clocks of Core i5-9600K. Again, this processor will have a base frequency of 3.7 GHz and can be maxed turbo to 4.6 GHz.
Although, the i7-9700K will range from 3.6 GHz to 4.9 GHz. Whereas, the i9-9900K will have a base clock of 3.6 GHz and max up to 5 GHz.
All these CPUs will have a max TDP of 95Watts challenging AMD Ryzen 2000 series processors. According to the leak, we also noted down that these chips are designed for a new Z390 chipset. The Z390 chipset over Z370 is initial as it will feature Bluetooth 5.0, USB 3.1 and Wireless-AC.
And those who are on the Z370 platform, no need to worry as these CPUs will fit well on your motherboards too with a simple BIOS update.
