According to the latest roadmap posted by HKEPC, Intel is set to launch its 9th Gen family. The exact date isn’t still out but it will be out there somewhere around October. The specifics of the model haven’t yet been disclosed but a leaked roadmap confirms the launch of these processors, including the HEDT Core-X.
There are seven processors in the new Core X series family in which Core i7-9800X serves as the entry level offering and Core i9-9980X serves as the flagship.
With respect to performance, the new CPU model provides more power for gaming and Digital content creation. Also Intel has boosted its clock speeds across all boards and now all SKUs feature support for DDR4-2666 memory and 44 PCIe Lanes. The top-end Core i9-9980HK model is said to feature eight cores with Hyper-Threading for a total of 16 threads, and a top boost speed of 5GHz. A slightly cut-down Core i9-9980H would run at up to 4.8GHz. The two Core i7 models in the allegedly leaked list were the Core i7-9850H and Core i7-9750H, both with six cores and Hyper-Threading enabled. Boost speeds for the two are said to be 4.6GHz and 4.5GHz respectively. Finally, the Core i5-9400H and Core i5-9300H are both said to have four cores with Hyper-Threading, running at up to 4.3GHz and 4.1GHz respectively.
Also Intel finally announced the Xeon the W-3175X, which is a new 28-core/56 thread processor and has been designed for extreme workstations. The 265W TDP processor has 38.5 Mb of cache with multiple unlocked and featuring 3.1Ghz base and 4.3Ghz boost clocks.The processor supports a total of 68 PCIe lanes out of which 44 are attributed to the CPU and 24 are being handled by chipst.
