Intel’s 9th-generation processors could land earlier than expected

According to wccftech the range will arrive on the 1st October with Intel planning a further refresh in 2019

But the latest claim adds to those voices that say the CPUs will be here soon.

According to WCCFTech's sources, the new Intel chips are on track for an October 1st reveal.

If you were expecting anything bigger then allow us to disappoint you as, really the ninth-gen chips are mild upgrades on their predecessors, unless Intel has been keeping something very well hidden up its corporate sleeves. However, Intel is also expected to launch a new top-end Z390 platform controller along with its new 8-core desktop CPUs. It will feature a base clock of 3.6GHz and will be able to reach 5GHz when boosted during single and dual-core processing scenarios.

The Core i7 CPU won't be quite as hefty, but it will still be able to offer up to 4.9GHz on a single core and 4.6GHz across all cores if required. The upcoming chip is said to include 16MB of L3 cache and Intel's UHD 620 graphics.

A recently leaked benchmark showed the Core i9-9900K easily outperforming the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Core i7-8700K.

Less exciting would be a range of mid-tier Core i5-9600K processor with six cores, six threads, a 3.7GHz base clock and a 4.3GHz boost with all cores (4.6GHz with one). This would be an incredible feat, with Intel making sure the 9900K is the best 8C/16T processor on the market. It would clock in at 3.6 Ghz and could be boosted up to 4.6 Ghz with all cores running or 4.9 Ghz. As Intel is making hyperthreading an i9-only feature, the i7-9700K has eight threads.

This is still all rumor, of course, but it's looking increasingly likely that the new processors will be here in a few weeks' time.
