Intel claims Core i9 9900K is the "best gaming processor"

I also observed a real-world photogrammetry demonstration with a Core i9-9900X, which managed to stitch together roughly 1,000 photos of a gallery in Smithsonian's American Art Museum into a virtual reality exhibition using the Reality Capture app in a bit less than one hour.

As previously rumored, the Core i9-9900K supports Hyper Threading while the Core i7-9700K does not. The company demonstrated a single PC with a Core i9-9900K running two games in separate virtual machines simultaneously, but gaming while encoding and streaming is a more likely usage scenario. Intel is keeping the TDP of the Core i9-9900K at 95W.

The lack of Hyper-Threading on the i7-9700K will provide quite the interesting performance comparison with the current flagship 6C/12T i7-8700K. And all the chips in question have soldered TIMs, including the Core i5-9600K, which should give overclockers a slightly larger chance at hitting frequency targets. Comparatively, the Intel Core i7-8700K starts at a tick higher 3.7GHz base frequency but can't go almost as fast with its maximum 4.9GHz boost clock. Additionally, the i9-9900K features 16MB of cache, compared to the 12MB found on the i7-8700K.

Intel today officially announced the first round of 9 generation Core processors, and given all the leaks that have occurred over the past few months, there weren't too many surprises.

Google shutting down Google
In fact, usage is pretty minimal on the site, with "90 percent of Google + user sessions" being "less than five seconds". The consumer version of Google + will be wound down over 10 months, ending by August, the company said.

Alongside these new processors comes the launch of a new chipset from Intel, Z390. Switching to solder should make the delicate process of delidding less appealing on these new chips.

Intel has taken the wraps off three new 9 Gen desktop Core CPUs for gamers and mainstream users, as well as a new range of Core X-Series CPUs and also a Xeon consumer workstation CPU for extremely demanding content creators.

KitGuru Says: Intel launched a slew of new CPUs today and we'll be getting a whole bunch of new prebuilt PCs, motherboards and RAM kits to go alongside them.
