Intel Core i9-9900K and i7-9700K turbo clocks impress

Core i9-9900K and i7-9700K turbo clocks revealed - 4.7 GHz with all eight cores

Intel's new Core i9-9900K: 8C/16T with all-core 4.7GHz boost

The chips are from Intel's long-rumored ninth-generation Core processor family, and CPU-Z's latest update practically confirms its existence with potential information discovered about the lineup. They'll be based on improvements to the existing 14nm process which allows the chip-maker to step up its game once again. It's strongly believed that another octacore will be joining the very first i9 in the mainstream space from Intel too, the i7 9700K.

As WCCFTech reports, sources are reporting that Intel intends to launch the 9th gen desktop processors on Oct 1.

Wccftech claims that Intel will introduce its Core i9, i7, and i5 chips on October 1st.

The Core i7 9700K is an eight-core and eight-thread processor (that's right no Hyper threading) with a boost up to 4.9 GHz on one single-core. As per leaked documents that the site has obtained, the Core i9-9900K will be the first mainstream desktop processor to use the Core i9 brand. The CPU is also said to come with 16 MB of L3 cache and Intel's UHD 620 graphics chip. Intel notably launched the Core i9-8950HK as the first Core i9 processor for notebooks in April, following the the high-end desktop Core i9 models as part of its Core X-series a year ago. As Intel is making hyperthreading an i9-only feature, the i7-9700K has eight threads.

Finally, there's the 6 core/6 thread Core i5-9600K, which has a 3.7GHz base clock and a 4.3GHz boost with all cores (4.6GHz single). It would clock in at 3.6 Ghz and could be boosted up to 4.6 Ghz with all cores running or 4.9 Ghz.
