The mainstream models that will show up in off-the-shelf gaming towers in time for holiday shopping include the six-core Core i5-9600K, as well as the eight-core Core i7-9700K and Core i9-9900K. Intel has also said that the all-core frequency for the i9-9900K is 400 MHz faster than the i7-8700K. Instead, this new high-end Coffee Lake processor runs for a noticeably higher $374 (about £290, AU$530) price.

On the mainstream side of things, we have the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K and Core i5-9600K. Finally, the Core i5-9600K has six cores, clocked at 3.7GHz and up to 4.6GHz, with a 9MB cache and 95W TDP. A Core i9-9980XE helped one of Intel's test machines transcode a 4K video file (the same one PCMag uses for its own CPU benchmarks) in 27 minutes using the Handbrake app, compared with 40 minutes for a system running the previous-gen Core i9-7980XE. Some users have taken to ripping off the IHS, a process known as delidding, to replace Intel's thermal interface material with liquid metal for better temps.

Moving onto the 8-core processors, we have the i7-9700K and the i9-9900K.

All of the new 9th Gen Core-X CPUs support up to 68 PCIe 3.0 lanes and quad-channel DDR4 at 2666MHz. The Core i9-9900K has eight cores and 16 threads, clocked at 3.6GHZ and up to 5GHz with a 16MB cache and 95W TDP.


Core i9-9960X: 16C/32T, 3.1/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $1,684 MSRP. There's also a new Xeon chip, the Xeon W-3175X, for use in workstation PCs to support highly specialized hardware and software such as ECC memory. The product will begin shipping in December, but as yet there is no word on pricing.

Anandtech doesn't believe there are any new security fixes coming in these new desktop chips, implying they'll lack the security fixes that debuted with Whiskey Lake. What do you guys think of Intel's 9th Gen series so far?

Despite the launch of a new chipset in the form of Z390, these new 9th generation chipsets will maintain compatibility with all previous 300-series Intel chipsets, such as Z370 through updates that will be made available by motherboard manufacturers.

Whether or not Intel's 9th-gen speedup matters to you depends on how recently you've upgraded your current PC.
