B&H Photo, for example, has the Core i9-9900K listed at $529.99, the Core i7-9700K at $399, and the Core i5-9600K at $279.99. "Intel said that the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K processor achieved up to 309 frames per second (FPS) on Rainbow Six: Siege; up to 224 FPS on Fortnite; up to 440 FPS on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive; and up to 221 FPS on PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds", wrote VentureBeat. As before, there will be Core i5, i7, and i9 variants of the 9th-generation K-series CPUs.

Under these two processors is the 6C/6T chip in the new Core i5-9600K, with 9MB of L3 cache and a higher base CPU clock of 3.7GHz. This is quite a different configuration to its predecessor, the Core i7-8700K with 6C/12T but the same base Coffee Lake architecture.

Stepping down the ladder, we find the Core i7-9700K.

The new Core i9-9900K marks the first time that Intel is using its Core i9 brand for a mainstream desktop CPU, supplanting the usual top-spec Core i7 model.


Addressing one of the most common complaints from enthusiasts about recent Intel processors, the 9th generation series of processors will come with what Intel is referring to as "Solder Thermal Interface Material" (STIM). There's also a 16MB cache and dual-channel DDR4 RAM support.

The flagship Intel Core i9-9900K has a base clock 100 MHz lower than the i7-8700K but features the same 5.0 GHz single-core Turbo Boost clock as the i7-8086K. All of the 9th gen CPUs will work on current 300-series motherboards, as well as the new Z390 motherboards coming soon. The Hyperthreading enabled processor is listed to be released on October the 19th.

Intel just held its Fall Desktop Launch Event in New York City this morning, where the chip maker unveiled its latest lineup of desktop processors for high-end PCs.
