Eight processing cores, for the first time together at a record frequency of 5GHz - starting next month in selected stores
There are significant disadvantages to maintaining a certain chip production lithography for a relatively long time, while competitors are moving forward from generation to generation quickly - but there are also certain advantages to this, as the decision of Intel Launch the familyIce Lake At 10 nm alongside the family Comet Lake At 14 nm, each aimed at notable benefits for a particular type of consumer.
Improving and improving certain production technology over the years makes it possible to reach full potential and extremely stable operating frequencies - and this is something that Intel plans to take to the extreme with theCore its i9-9900KS, which will be the first ever octopus capable of bringing all of its processing cores to a single 5GHz frequency straight out of the box, in contrast to the 5GHz Maximum Frequency statement and even more when using a single core or a pair of cores and using significantly lower frequencies In Xi'an.
The Core i9-9900KS processor was unveiled to the world at the Computex show in June, as the (certainly the last?) Engineering culmination of the company's 14-nanometer production process that has undergone four different incarnations as part of its mass availability over the years - eight physical cores with HyperThreading technology support. Operates at a base frequency of 4GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 5GHz, both for a single core and for all eight cores combined, combined with the familiar UHD Graphics 630 core and memory controller DDR4 Dual channels at base frequency of 2,666MHz. There is also an open frequency multiplier for those who are interested in performing The fast Another, as the letter "K" indicates in the model name.
Intel has now announced that the 9900 KS will be officially available for purchase during October - so far without an official recommended price tag unfortunately, although based on a price of $ 488 for the Core i9-9900K and Core i9-9900KF models it is reasonable to guess that the -9900KS will cross the $ 500 mark and fight directly against the 12-core model from the Ryzen 3000 family of AMD.
The model's power casing is still unknown to us, although it has been proven on several occasions that 95 watts from home Intel Capable of reaching a power consumption of about 140 watts in extreme cases, so this figure becomes less and less relevant in the real world - and if we have to throw a guess we assume that the new top model can display power consumption of more than 150 watts when all its cores run at 5GHz for maximum time That the heat sink and product temperature will allow.
Flashing from home Intel Or an unnecessary model? We may be able to decide in a month from today - but what is certain is that we are already waiting impatiently to find out how the first generation of 10 nanometer processors from home will work Intel In the stationary home market, somewhere over the next year.
