A couple of months ago, we informed you about the 8th-Gen Core i5, i7 and i9 CPUs focused on gaming. But right now, it seems that Intel is preparing to release their latest mainstream processor and the details have been leaked.
Due to improvements in the 14nm process mode, the new processor which has faster clocks and more cores will join the 9th Gen family. However, we have more details on when the new processors will be released and available on retail channels.
Meet Intel 9th Gen core
According to the latest news, on 1st October, 2018, Intel will launch its unlocked SKU family alongside the Z390 series based on Intel’s 14nm manufacturing process.
The upcoming release will feature 8 core and 6 core CPUs, including Core i9-9900K, the first mainstream desktop Core i9 chip.
In addition, the Core i9-9900K would feature 3.6 GHz processor; this processor can be boosted 5 GHz with only 1-2 cores or up to 4.7 GHz with all cores, with support for up to 16 code threads.
On the other hand, the Core i7-9700K, which would be the first mainstream 8 core processor, will also be released. Core i7-9700K will clock in at 3.6 GHz and can be boosted to 4.9 GHz or up to 4.6 GHz with all cores running.
However, the mid-range processor which would be launched is the Core i5-9600K processor. This processor comes with six cores, a 3.7GHz base clock six threads, and a 4.3GHz boost with all cores and 4.6GHz with one core.
Recent reports suggest that the latest release will arrive on the 1st October, while Intel prepares for a further refresh in 2019.
How the new CPU improves Windows PCs
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) determines the computer speed. On the other hand, the system hardware measures a CPU’s clock speed using a unit called gigahertz (GHz). Therefore, a CPU running at 5GHz will be able to process data faster when compared with a processor running at 2.9GHz.
With the new CPU, the speed at which data flow on the Windows PC will be much faster than previous Gen CPU. This ‘new speed’ also applies to applications speed which will also be amplified.
