Amazon starts listing Core i9 9900K preorder at 499 Dollars

We've already published a lengthy preview of Z390 and some of the flagship motherboards rolling out this month. All the new chipsets are still based upon the company's existing 14nm++ process of manufacturing.

Intel came out swinging, stating that the company intends to "deliver leadership performance across all computing segments", adding that "today's announcements underscore our ability to do exactly that". During its presentation, Intel declared the 9900K to be "the best gaming CPU in the world - period" and offered rough numbers showing performance gains in games against the Skylake-based Core i7-6700k. The Core i5 versions are six-core designs while the i7 and i9 jump to eight cores. No word on the rest of the 9th generation lineup, but we expect them to launch at the same time as the i9 processor. The 9700K will have two more cores than the i7-8700K with 1.5MB L3 cache per core. The i9-9900K runs at 3.6 GHz, but it can be speed-boosted to a full 5 GHz.

Microsoft Will Roll Out Video Game Streaming Service in 2019
With a beta test scheduled to start in 2019, Microsoft is slowly making the hardware available at its various Azure centres. In the case of mobile devices, the company is working on a new touch overlay in case you don't have a controller handy.


In the US, MSRP starts at $262 for the Core i5, $374 for the Core i7 and $488 for the Core i9. As before, there will be Core i5, i7, and i9 variants of the 9th-generation K-series CPUs. However, if production is more your thing, then you'll want to take a look at the Core-X series instead. The rated TDP is 95W, and Intel points out that compared to the Core i7-8700K, the new Core i9-9900K has more cores with similar frequencies running within the same thermal envelope. In dual-mode we have 4.8GHz, while 4-core mode hits 4.7GHz and 6/8-core mode it'll reach 4.6GHz.

Core i9-9960X: 16C/32T, 3.1/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $1,684 MSRP.

The firm's '#MadeByGoogle' event kicks off at 11a.m. (ET) on Tuesday and is hosting a livestream of all the announcements. Unless Google is still guarding a special feature , virtually everything is known about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL .


Core i9-9820X: 10C/20T, 3.3/4.1GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $898 MSRP.

Finally, Intel also announced the Xeon W-3175X workstation chip with an incredible 28 cores. The product will begin shipping in December, but as yet there is no word on pricing. The new CPUs are backward-compatible with the Z370 chipset as well, so you won't need to worry about being locked out of this upgrade if you have an older motherboard.

The performance comes just days after he was similarly impressive in UEFA Europa League action at home to Rapid Vienna. I spoke to the Doc this morning but he didn't know. "I am very happy playing for these supporters and for Rangers".


Update: Sharp-eyed readers confirmed something I'd missed - Intel's slides do note that 9th Generation CPUs are protected at the same level as Intel's Whiskey Lake.
