Intel puts 5GHz on Core i9-9990XE CPU

Available for auction

According to a classified document found by AnandTech, Intel is going to put on auction the unannounced Core i9-9990XE 14-core processor between a very selected number of OEMs.


This particular chip features 14 cores and 28 threads, and it’s been combined with 19.25 MB of L3 cache (unconfirmed). This CPU is supposed to make the life of the AMD Threadripper 2920X CPU a bit harder. The chip is still based around Intel's Skylake microarchitecture and produced under the chipmaker's 14nm node. According to AnandTech's information, the Core i9-9990XE sports 4GHz base clock with 5GHz boost clock and a 255W TDP.

In other words, the Core i9-9990XE is nothing more than a highly-binned Core i9-9940X. According to a report from AnandTech, the upcoming Core i9-9990XE would not have a fixed price. Intel will hold an online auctions once every quarter and the first auction will take place on the third week of 2019.: Wccftech
