Intel details 28-core Xeon part, new Core-X Series

Marion JacobsOct 10, 2018

This processor ships in a new dodecahedron-shaped box which Intel thinks buyers will want to show off. Core i9 costs $488 and i5-9600K will be available at $262.

We don't see the new chips listed on Amazon or Newegg just yet, but preorders open today, with availability starting on October 19.

Intel has taken the wraps off three new 9 Gen desktop Core CPUs for gamers and mainstream users, as well as a new range of Core X-Series CPUs and also a Xeon consumer workstation CPU for extremely demanding content creators. Staying with the same 6C/6T configuration, the 9600K improves the base frequency by 100 MHz, while adding 300 MHz to the rated single-core Turbo Boost 2.0 clock speed. However, we should be seeing the 10nm-based Cannon Lake chips next year. The Core i7-9700K is now an eight-core CPU, clocked at 3.6GHz and up to 4.9GHz (boost frequency) with a 12MB cache and 95W TDP. When it comes to video production, these new CPUs are up to 41% faster in Adobe Premiere compared to the previous generation.

Core i9-9980XE: 18C/36T, 3.0/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $1,979 MSRP. It includes 8 cores and 16 threads, and it's the only one of the three with hyperthreading.

The platform supports six channels of DDR4-2666 memory with a maximum capacity of 512GB and offers 68 PCIe lanes.

City's Mahrez misses late penalty in goalless draw at Liverpool
Trent Alexander-Arnold has had a good start to the season with Liverpool, but at times his youth has got the better of him. But it was Gers who claimed a crucial three points as they exploded out the traps with a sensational first half display.

A 28-core Xeon was also announced. The Core i5-9600K sports six cores paired with six threads and has a base clock speed of 3.7GHz, which can be boosted up to 4.6GHz. The W-3175X will begin shipping in December, with pricing to be announced closer to the time.

These new chips will be the first to have hardware fixed for the Meltdown Variant 3 and L1 Terminal Fault problems, while the remaining issues are solved through software.

That's because Intel's truly new chips have been significantly delayed. Both the Z370 and the Z390 will support the new 9th generation CPUs (with a BIOS update for the Z370) and the updates are minor, as you get more native USB 3.1 Gen2 ports and integrated 802.11ac WiFi.

Whether or not Intel's 9th-gen speedup matters to you depends on how recently you've upgraded your current PC.
