There were rumors that Intel introduced the 9th generation of processors in October. Although the 10-nanometer Cannon Lake chips of the company were delayed until 2019, this year’s update will be based on the improvement of the existing 14-nm process technology. Wccftech reports that on October 1, Intel will introduce new chips Core i9, i7 and i5, which will be branded as processors of the 9th generation.
It is expected that the main flagship Intel Core i9-9900K will be shipped with 8 cores. The extracted documents show that this will be the first main desktop processor Core i9, which will include 16 MB L3 cache and Intel UHD 620 graphics chip. Even the Core i7 9 generation is expected to be supplied with 8 cores and 8 threads (now it has 6 cores ), and Core i5 will have 6 cores and 6 threads.
According to reports, Intel will first launch its unlocked processors with overclocking, and at the beginning of next year – the 9th generation as a whole. If the launch on October 1 really takes place, you should expect that these processors will be available on different machines by the end of this year. Of course, first of all, everyone will want to compare Intel’s newest progenitors with AMD Ryzen chips in games and other tasks. The answers should appear in the next month.
