Earlier this year in July, we told you about the rumors via a leak by PCBuildersClub, which suggested an August release of Intel’s latest 9th Gen Core CPUs. That, obviously, didn’t happen.
As per a new report from Wccftech, Intel is working to push the 9th Gen Core release as soon as 1st October. The sources have indicated that the newly improved processor lineup based on the tried and tested 14nm process will initially include 3 unlocked chips.
The much-hyped and Intel’s first 8 core mainstream CPU Core i9-9900K chip will ship as an 8 core / 16 thread option. The Core i7-9700K will ship as an 8 core / 8 thread chip, and Core i5-9600K will ship as a 6 core / 6 thread chip.
i9-9900K will be reportedly faster than company’s 8086K Anniversary Edition chip and will boast 16MB of L3 and Intel UDH 620 graphics chip. The clocks speeds are expected to range from the base speed of 3.6GHz to a boost speed of 5.0GHz in single and dual core applications; the 6/8 core boost clock is rated 4.7GHz.
Followed by this release of the unlocked processors, Intel will ship more 9th Gen chips early next year.
With the growing competition in terms of performance and value for money offered by AMD’s Ryzen’s chips, Intel would be surely looking to up its game. Will Intel’s 9th Gen around the corner, it’d be interesting to see how things turn out.
