Intell Cofee Lake S, 8 core CPU comes in Q3 2018
  • image

    Present rumors are that Intel will drop single cores frequency (around 5-10%) and also will require you to buy new motherboard.

    • Core i9-9900K

      • base frequency - 3.1Ghz
      • turbo expected to be around 4-4.5Ghz

      • 100-115W TDP
    • Core i7-9700K
      • 6 cores/12 threads
      • base frequency - 3.7Ghz

      • 9Mb cache
      • 95W TDP
  • The i7-8700k is already 6 cores/12 threads with a base frequency of 3.7Ghz, 12M cache, a max turbo of 4.7ghz, and a 95W TDP. Seems like the 9700k is a total "don't bother" in terms of an upgrade.

    And the 9900K - a total increase of about 10.5% in total ghz (24.8 vs 22.2) with what looks like about 10-15% increase in TDP along with worse single-thread performance (3.1/4.5 vs 3.7/4.7) is completely unexciting.

    Intel is struggling. I can't imagine a lot of enthusiasts or gamers bothering to upgrade to these unless there's some other hidden upgrade (maybe the new chipset adds more i/o or something?)

    Idea of 9900K is to have newer MB with better VRMs, so actual TDP will be around 200-250W. As no one will run it stock.

  • Another list

    • Core i9-9900K, 8 cores/16 threads, 16MB cache, 95W TDP (very low!), price from 450 USD
    • Core i7-9700K, 6 cores/12 threads, 12 MB cache, 95W TDP, price from $350 USD
    • Core i5-9600K, 6 cores/6 threads, 3.7 GHz/4.5 GHz boost, 9MB cache, 95W, price from 250 USD
    • Core i5-9600, 6 cores/6 threads, 3.1 GHz/4.5 GHz boost, 9 MB cache, 65W TDP
    • Core i5-9500 , 6 cores/6 threads, 3.0 GHz/4.3 GHz boost, 9 MB cache, 65W TDP
    • Core i5-9400 , 6 cores/6 threads, 2.9 GHz/4.1 GHz boost, 9 MB cache, 65W TDP
    • Core i3-9100, 4 cores/4 threads, 3.7 GHz, 6MB cache, 65W TDP
    • Core i3-9000, 4 cores/4 threads, 3.7 GHz, 6MB cache, 65W TDP
  • Also it seems that Intel PR department is pushing info that some of 370 chipset motherboard will support 8 core CPU, actually no fact exist. All new support can affect 6 cores CPUs only.

  • I hadn't noticed it in the graphic posted above (but it's there), but it looks like the i7 part is losing hyperthreading in favor of the more expensive i9 part. Hyperthreading isn't all that useful for most workloads, but it still seems like a strategy for Intel to push people to its more expensive/ higher profit margin parts.

  • The new 9th Gen Intel Core processors memory controller is capable of supporting DDR4 16Gb die density DIMMs which will allow the processors to support a total system memory capacity of up to 128GB when populating both motherboard memory channels with 2 DIMMs per Channel (2DPC) using these DIMMs. As DDR4 16Gb die density DIMMs have only recently become available, we are now validating them, targeting an update in a few months’ time.
