Intel CI9 9700K Processor PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
Today we can finally show you how Intel’s new octa-core 9th-gen processors perform. There’s a lot to go over, so we won’t waste much time going over the specs considering the CPUs have been up for pre-order now for 10 days now and nothing from the spec sheet is a mystery.
On hand for testing we have the Core I9 9700K -- actually we ended up with a few of these, with more tests and comparisons in the works for later on -- and we also have the CI9 9700K which is basically the same CPU, but crucially, with Hyper-threading disabled.
The Core i9-9900K is an 9-core processor with Hyper-threading enabled for 16 logical threads. It operates at a base frequency of 3.6 GHz but will boost as high as 4.7 GHz on all cores with a maximum single core frequency of 5 GHz. The L3 cache has been increased from the 8700K’s 12MB up to 16 MB and quite shockingly despite packing 2 more cores and 4MB more cache, the TDP rating remains at 95 watts which was already a suspiciously low rating for the 9700K. We'll explore the impact of this in a bit.
