Finally desktop eight-core from Intel - Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K

Finally desktop eight-core from Intel - Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K

[09:29 tue,9.October 2018   by ]    

It has been expected for a long time, now Intel is getting started: With the first desktop eight cores, the market leader is finally launching a few new processors on the market to at least catch up with AMD's current products in terms of equipment.

For more than a year, AMD has been selling 8 core processors in the desktop segment that leave Intel processors clearly behind in multi-threading benchmarks despite the lower price. Now Intel has introduced the ninth generation of its desktop core i processors. The top model, the Core i9-9900K now also has 8 cores and 16 threads and clocks nominally with 3.6 GHz. AMD's current top model, the Ryzen 7 2700X, clocks its 8 cores with similar 3.70GHz. Very probably Intel will be able to regain the performance crown with the Core i9-9900k, as it can turn up to 5.0 GHz (with max. 2 cores) in turbo mode, while AMD "only" reaches 4.3 GHz on paper. Intel creates this advantage by soldering the metal cover (heatspreader) of all new processors (like AMD). Intel had refrained from this cooling improvement in recent years, because there was no fast competition that justified the surcharge in production.

However, Intel does not yet want to see how this will ultimately affect performance. All media under Intel's NDA are not yet allowed to publish test reports.
The new processors will be delivered from October 19, at prices that should be significantly above AMD's competitors. Intel has only announced dollar prices so far, but the first Euro guidelines are already making the rounds:


The Core i9-9900K will probably not be available for less than 560 Euro, the smaller Core i7-9700K will go over the counter with less cache (12 instead of 16 MB) and without hyperthreading for at least 440 Euro. And for at least 300 Euro there will be a six core Core i5-9600K. Also this one has no hyperthreading and only 9 MB cache. For this price you already get AMD's top desktop model Ryzen 7 2700X today.

However, the biggest problem is likely to be availability: Intel just has acute delivery problems with its current processors, which is why it should be exciting to see whether the new models will be available in sufficient quantities for the market launch. If not, this will push road prices (as with the current models) further upwards. And AMD will thus gain even more market share...
