For a couple of years now, rumors have swirled about Intel releasing a higher-end variant of its Core processor family. While we’re waiting for the next generation Intel processors, recent rumors suggest that Intel might soon release a Core i9 CPU model, alongside the forthcoming family of processors.

Intel’s Basin Galls CPUs

A post from the Anandtech forums suggest that Intel’s next-gen processor family – codenamed Basin Falls – will probably include both the Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X models. These two variants will stand side by side at the lower-end side, while the Skylake-X models will be positioned at the highest point.

The post also suggests that Intel will release a higher-end Core i9 model as well. There are no more details available about all this for the moment, so we just have to wait and see how this will turn out — and if these rumors will become reality.

Intel hasn’t confirmed the rumors yet

Intel hasn’t confirmed any of these rumors yet, so only time will tell if the company will indeed launch a Core i9 model. The release date of the next-gen family of processors remains unknown. On the other hand, some rumors say that these chips may launch next month. The price for the new processors also remains a mystery for now, but since the chips may be released pretty soon, we’re sure that we’ll also have this information in the near future.
