In addition to its the Core i9-9900K processor, Intel also announced two other 9th gen desktop CPUs with the Core i5-9600K and Core i7-9700K. The Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K are Intel's first mainstream 8-core processors. Intel cranked the hype dial to 11, stating that it's "breaking the laws of physics to bring you these parts" and trumpeting the Core i9-9900K as "the best gaming processor in the world, period". Intel also showed off motherboards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock based on a new desktop platform controller, the Z390, to go along with the 9 Gen Core processors. For example, the Core i9-9980XE will offer 18 cores (and 36 threads) with a maximum turbo-boost speed of 4.5 GHz for about $1980.

At the lower end, we have the i5-9600K, replacing the current i5-8600K.

Joining this flagship model are the Core i7-9700K and the Core i5-9600K. This is quite a different configuration to its predecessor, the Core i7-8700K with 6C/12T but the same base Coffee Lake architecture.

Intel is using a Solder Thermal Interface Material (STIM) on the new 9900K, something that should make some people happy with integrated USB 3.1 gen 2 and integrated Intel Wireless-AC connectivity. Additionally it features 16MB of L3 cache (2MB of per core), supports dual channel DDR4-2666, and is rated at 95W TDP.

Intel has taken the wraps off three new 9 Gen desktop Core CPUs for gamers and mainstream users, as well as a new range of Core X-Series CPUs and also a Xeon consumer workstation CPU for extremely demanding content creators. The processors are available for pre-order now at several retailers and will be widely released on October 19. No word on the rest of the 9th generation lineup, but we expect them to launch at the same time as the i9 processor.
