Intel will solder IHS on Core i9-9900K

Up to 5.0GHz in single core

A few weeks ago, the first specifications on Intel's upcoming 9th generation processors have started to surface. Now it looks like the first bunch of official slides have leaked into the net and once more the source is VideoCardz.


First of all more details about the Turbo clock frequencies of upcoming CPUs are making it through. According to Videocardz, the mighty Intel Core i9-9900K is supposed to hit up to 5.0GHz when running in single-core mode. If you consider that the base clock is set to 3.6GHz, we believe that the Turbo frequency is rather promising. Furthermore there is more information on the "strange" Core i7-9700K.

This chip might break with tradition, since it will be the first Core i7 without HyperThreading. The Core i7-9700K will pack eight cores, a base clock of 3.6GHz and a single core Turbo clock set to 4.9GHz.

Undoubtedly the most interesting bit of information that appears to have leaked is the fact, that Intel is finally going to solder the heatspreader to the die of at least the Core i9-9900K. This should allow for a much improved heat dissipation which might be rather necessary considering that the Turbo clock can reach up to 5.0 GHz.

It feels like the media, end users and system integrators have been complaining on this issue for an eternity and finally, as there is some real pressure from AMD again, Intel is coming to senses, starting to do reasonable things again.
