Intel is expected to launch the 9th generation Intel Core processors on October 1. These are the Intel Core i9-9900K (8 core / 16 thread), Intel Core i7-9700K (8 core / 8 thread), and Intel Core i5-9600K (8 core / 8 thread). The chip won't be cheap at around $450, but if you need Intel's best processors, the i9-9900K is one to consider. The Core i9 chip will come sporting eight cores and sixteen threads, the Core i7 has the same number of cores but half the threads, and the Core i5, arguably the more mainstream CPU, will have six cores and six threads.

The Intel i9 9900K is an eight-core / sixteen-thread monster set to take on the core dominance from AMD's Ryzen lineup. It may also feature 16 MB of L3 cache and Intel UHD 620 graphics. Three unlocked processors are planned for this year alongside a new Z390 series chipset. However, this model is also said to lack Hyper-Threading, taking the thread count down from 12 to eight compared to the existing Core i7-8700K. In a similar fashion, the 9600K will brings things down a notch further to 4.6GHz on one core and 4.3GHz on all six cores. The new platform could be released sometime in October, shortly after the launch of the new mainstream Intel Core processors. Four cores can run together at 4.8GHz, and it can utilise 6 or all physical cores and still achieve 4.7GHz.
