9th gen Intel Core processors leak: everything you need to know

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

Details of Intel's next generation of processors have leaked.

Wccftech reports that Intel's new Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 processors will be launched on October 1st and branded as the company's 9th generation chips.

The very detailed documents acquired by WCCFTech reveal some significant core upgrades, at least to the i9 and i7 lines.

The Core i7-9700K, on the other hand, would be the first mainstream 8 core processor. These three unlocked processors, however, are slated to be launched on October 1. It too would start at 3.6GHz, although its boost speed would top out at 4.6GHz for all cores (4.9GHz for one core) and would only support eight threads. 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). The chip is said to have 12MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 95W.

Less exciting would be a range of mid-tier Core i5-9600K processor with six cores, six threads, a 3.7GHz base clock and a 4.3GHz boost with all cores (4.6GHz with one).

Multiple motherboard vendors have confirmed that upcoming 9000-series of Intel processors will be compatible with existing Z3xx series motherboards. It will have 9MB of L3 cache, and clock speeds ranging from 3.7GHz to 4.6GHz. The new 9th-gen CPU will be an 8C/16T chip on the 14nm node by Intel (since their 10nm is delayed into 2020) with a newly-teased single-core CPU clock of 5GHz. Yet another and more recent roadmap leaked onto the web.
