Intel’s ninth-generation Core has been exposed for a long time, but the news has been scattered and true and false. Interestingly, a recent Vietnam website has focused on a large number of ninth-generation Core processors, including some key parameters.
The processor for this exposure includes the Core i9-9900K, i7-9700K, and i5-9600K of the Coffee Lake Refresh architecture (14nm+++). The mid-range i5-9600, i5-9500, and i5-9400 are expected to be available, as well as the entry-level i3-9300.
According to the Leak news, this ninth-generation Core will be optimized with Intel AoTeng storage technology, but it is unclear how to optimize it.
Among them, several high-end product parameters are exposed. For details, please refer to the picture. The i9-9900K uses 8 cores and 16 threads, the i7-9700K is 8 cores and 8 threads, and the i5-9600K uses 6 cores and 6 threads. The TDP power consumption is 95W. The version under the i5-9600 is mainly 6 core 6 threads, and the TDP power consumption is 65W. The i3-9100 entry style is a 4-core 4-thread design.
However, some people have questioned the new generation of Core, which is only the Refresh version of Coffee Lake. The frequency increase is not much, only 100MHz, up to 200MHz, the performance improvement should be limited as it a refresh to the old 14nm architecture and also the shortage of the Coffee Lake Refresh will give a great headstart for the AMD upcoming 3rd Gen of Ryzen processors.
