Intel Core i7-9700K hands on review

Intel Core i9 X-Series

The six-core Core i5-9600K and 8-core Core i7-9700K will also be launching the same day.

Intel also announced a slew of new Intel Core X-series processors for super high performance, with up to 18 cores. The company demonstrated a single PC with a Core i9-9900K running two games in separate virtual machines simultaneously, but gaming while encoding and streaming is a more likely usage scenario.

The company might update to the new 10nm manufacturing process standard next year with its highly anticipated Cannon Lake chips. The Core i5-9600K sports six cores paired with six threads and has a base clock speed of 3.7GHz, which can be boosted up to 4.6GHz.

Pricing for the new unlocked K-series processors is $262 for the Core i5-9600K, $374 for the Core i7-9700K, and $488 for the Core i9-9900K.

Intel 9 generation desktop processors will be headed by the i9-9900k which appears to have taken the top spot for the high-end consumer desktop offering. When it comes to video production, these new CPUs are up to 41% faster in Adobe Premiere compared to the previous generation. And according to the results, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is noticeably faster than what Intel is claiming. The 1-core CPU boost is 4.6GHz, 2-core at 4.5GHz, 4-core at 4.4GHz and 6-core at 4.3GHz.

The Z390 platform will continue to feature the same "up to 40" PCI Express lanes that we've seen for several generations, with 16 lanes being directly connected to the CPU, and the rest coming from the chipset which is still connected via a DMI 3.0 link. We don't know if this is a refresh of Skylake-X at the moment, but we are hoping to have that question answered soon.

All of these new 9th Gen processors have hardware mitigation against Meltdown Variant 3, the security bug that we heard so much about back in January. And new Xeon workstation parts-with up to 28 cores and 56 threads-will debut in December.

Update: Sharp-eyed readers confirmed something I'd missed - Intel's slides do note that 9th Generation CPUs are protected at the same level as Intel's Whiskey Lake. We also know that Gigabyte and ASUS will be building motherboards to support this new chip.

Unveiled on Monday, the new chips come in three flavors. Are any of you thinking about upgrading?
