There is more than a month to the moment when full official details of the 9000 generation of the Core processors from home are apparently heard IntelBut somewhere in the world, there are already people who are experimenting with these products of the future, it seems - and sometimes even sharing the web with their findings, ignoring the information available on the subject.
Users in China have been able to obtain an engineering sample of the Core i7-9700K processor (typically a final version of the final version but operate at slightly more modest frequencies), which will offer eight processing cores for the first time outside the HEDT models Intel, And successfully convert it to a massive 5.5GHz frequency for all cores thanks to CCTV - which certainly indicates good potential for buyers, perhaps thanks to the use of soldering between the chips and its protective cover instead of a simple thermal adhesive.
What is surprising is not only the frequency of work, but also the fact that the result was achieved on a relatively old and relatively simple Z370 board - when faced with Z390 boards that were pre-designed for full and high-quality 8 cores electrical support will be likely to achieve results The fast Even more impressive.
Not relevant enough for you? There is also information about pre-order pricescore i7-9700K and his brother-core i9-9900K, which are priced in European stores at initial prices of 440 Euros and 560 Euros respectively, including the equivalent of VAT.
It is not at all certain that these will be the official final prices in Europe (there are several online stores that have actually set higher prices), but it probably gives us some idea of Intel's plans,AMD Which sells its leading cores for just over $ 300. It is hard to believe that Intel will choose to compete directly withRYZEN 7 when it comes to price and will be closer to competition with models Threadripper The 12 Cores - a battle that will be a replay of the power relations between the two actresses last year.
