Core i9-9900K and i7-9700K turbo clocks revealed - 4.7 GHz with all eight cores

As early as October, Intel is expected to announce its 9th gen Core lineup, still on the 14 nm Coffee Lake architecture, that will be bringing, for the first time, 8 cores to the mainstream market. They'll be based on improvements to the existing 14nm process which allows the chip-maker to step up its game once again. These are the Intel Core i9-9900K (8 core / 16 thread), Intel Core i7-9700K (8 core / 8 thread), and Intel Core i5-9600K (8 core / 8 thread).

Details of Intel's next generation of processors have leaked. Specifically, the new chips will reportedly arrive on October 1.

The Intel Core i9-9900K will have eight cores and 16 threads on October 1, reports Wccftech. First to be launched will be the company's unlocked, overclockable processors. The Core i9 chip will come sporting eight cores and sixteen threads, the Core i7 has the same number of cores but half the threads, and the Core i5, arguably the more mainstream CPU, will have six cores and six threads. As Intel is making hyperthreading an i9-only feature, the i7-9700K has eight threads. The base frequency is 3.6GHz boosting up to 4.9GHz for two cores. The chip is said to have 12MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 95W.

Other 9th generation chips are planned, including an i5-9600, 9500, 9400, and 9400T, as well as an i3-9100, 9000, and 9000T. Even the 4-core boost is 4.8GHz while the 6-core boost sits at 4.7GHz alongside the 8-cores at 4.7GHz.
