    To realize the full potential of the new 9th Gen Intel Core processor, Intel is introducing the new Intel® Z390 chipset. The Intel Z390 chipset includes high-speed integrated USB 3.1 Gen 2 and integrated Intel® Wireless-AC with support for Gigabit Wi-Fi speed. The 9th Gen Intel Core processors are also compatible with all Intel® 300 Series chipset motherboards for more consumer options.

    Preorders for the 9th Gen Intel Core processors and Intel Z390 chipset motherboards begin today from a variety of global vendors and retailers.



    Ultimate PC Platform for Creators and Experts

    Intel also announced seven (i7-9800X, i9-9820X, i9-9900X, i9-9920X, i9-9940X, i9-9960X and i9-9980XE) new Intel Core X-series processors for Intel’s most scalable desktop platform with a variety of core counts and I/O capabilities, as well as details on the Intel Xeon W-3175X processor. Designed with high frequencies and platform features for both lightly threaded and heavily threaded workloads, these processors are designed to handle the most demanding tasks and applications. Both products are built on the Intel® Mesh Architecture, which increases memory and I/O bandwidth, while decreasing latency – a critical need for the demanding workloads of creators and experts.

    The new Intel Core X-series processors offer scalable options ranging from 8 to 18 cores with premium performance and platform technologies that help creators turn their imaginations into realities. With up to 18 cores, 36 threads, 24.75 MB Intel Smart Cache, and up to 68 platform PCIe lanes, Intel Core X-series processor-based systems enable creators to quickly and simultaneously record, encode, edit, render and transcode.

    With Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 delivering up to 4.5 GHz12 single-core frequency, the most critical workloads can be directed to the processor’s two fastest cores, optimizing for lightly threaded performance when necessary. This means customers do not have to make a tradeoff between choosing a processor for lightly threaded or heavily threaded workloads.

    Intel Core X-series processors will also enable software developers to write applications that take advantage of Intel® AVX-512 instructions to accelerate computing performance for parallel workloads.

    For the select, highly threaded and computing-intensive applications such as architectural and industrial design and professional content creation, Intel will deliver the unlocked3 Intel® Xeon® W-3175X processor.

    Good to see 6 and 8 core mainstream processors from Intel, but are they seriously charging $100 for HT? It's missing on the i7.

    Apparently HT is for gamers and Intel wants more money for more threads.....

    Why I am getting one(for my Z370 board) as soon as Caseking Germany puts them up:

    The new desktop processors include protections for the security vulnerabilities commonly referred to as "Spectre", "Meltdown" and "L1TF". These protections include a combination of the hardware design changes we announced earlier this year as well as software and microcode updates.

    * Speculative side channel variant Spectre V2 (Branch Target Injection) = Microcode + Software

    * Speculative side channel variant Meltdown V3 (Rogue Data Cache Load) = Hardware

    * Speculative side channel variant Meltdown V3a (Rogue System Register Read) = Microcode

    * Speculative side channel variant V4 (Speculative Store Bypass) = Microcode + Software

    * Speculative side channel variant L1 Terminal Fault = Hardware

    I'm a gamer, but I'll probably just wait for the Justin TimberLake, or whatever it was called. Still happy with my aging Haswell.

    Shouldn't the 9700 be grouped with the i9s rather than the i7s.

    I currently have the 6700k skylake so I assume I should upgrade to 9700k.

    2) Secondly, we are focusing our strategy around a primary ‘hero’ client brand which is Intel® Core™. Today the Intel Core brand has a mind boggling array of derivatives (such as Core™2 Duo and Core 2 Quad, etc). Over time those will go away and in its place will be a simplified family of Core processors spanning multiple levels: Intel® Core™ i3 processor, Intel® Core™ i5 processor, and Intel® Core™ i7 processors. Core i3 and Core i5 are new modifiers and join the previously announced Intel Core i7 to round out the family structure. It is important to note that these are not brands but modifiers to the Intel Core brand that signal different features and benefits. For example, upcoming processors such as Lynnfield (desktop) will carry the Intel Core brand, but will be available as either Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 depending upon the feature set and capability. Clarksfield (mobile) will have the Intel Core i7 name.

    So the key here is there will be a range of features and capabilities within the Intel Core family – our flagship brand representing the highest performance and the latest technology – but simplified into entry-level (Intel Core i3), mid-level (Intel Core i5), and high-level (Intel Core i7). We will still have Celeron for entry-level computing at affordable price points, Pentium for basic computing, and of course the Intel® Atom™ processor for all these new devices ranging from netbooks to smartphones. For PC purchasing, think in terms of good-better-best with Celeron being good, Pentium better, and the Intel Core family representing the best we have to offer.

    Determines the "i" modifier within a specific generation:
    • Cores
    • Base Freq
    • Turbo Freq
    • L3
    • TDP
    • Hyperthreading or not

    In addition to above, the "i" modifier will depend(be different) on if the chip is for desktop or mobile
    Like a desktop i7 is deferent than a mobile i7.
