some time ago We received a little leaked documentation Who talked about a new breed of desktop processors from Intel - Processors With the F extension that would appear to give up the built-in HD Graphics core on the chip and not operate without an external graphics unit, in return for lower power consumption, a slightly cooler operating temperature, and possibly even cost savings for the consumer at the end.
The appearance of the models in question in Newegg's online store and a number of other stores now significantly increases our confidence that an official show will take place very soon - and will provide closer competition than ever to the families of Ryzen's products. AMD (Which generally do not include graphics cores as well).
The Coffee Lake Refresh Series F series will be almost identical to the standard K series models or the series that does not include a companion signal launched several months ago:Core The octagonal i9-9900KF will be the carrier with working frequencies of between 3.6GHz and 5GHz for a cores pair and an open frequency multiplier,Core The i7-9700KF octagon will offer working frequencies between 3.6GHz as the base for 4.9GHz in maximum turbo mode without the support of HyperThreading technology,Core The i5-9600KF will be the top hexagonal model - while theCore i5-9400F exposes to us six cores with 2.9GHz working frequencies as the basis for 4.1GHz in maximum turbo mode, while we have yet to receive an official launch of the model Core "Standard" i5-9400 since includes graphics processing.
The big CES 2019 show that will start in a few days seems like the most logical focus for the launch of these new models, alongside countless other advanced and intriguing products, but on the other hand we would not be surprised if these models just suddenly appear in stock, without too much noise and ringing - and here it is. It all depends on the price tag.
If the F models are indeed a few dozen dollars cheaper than their counterparts that include graphics cores, it will be a significant step on the part of Intel to help increase the relative competitiveness of AMD Leading the cost-benefit indices, but if the price remains very close or identical to the standard models, which is already a juicy addition to the generations of processors -Core We will not fall off the chair if it is only a quiet launch.
