Intel is expected to launch its 9th Gen CPUs later today in a livestream beamed across the globe.

Meanwhile, Intel's 14nm has reportedly become the most profitable line of hardware the company has ever manufactured, though that's likely in part due to the necessity of using it as long as Intel has. "Intel said that the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K processor achieved up to 309 frames per second (FPS) on Rainbow Six: Siege; up to 224 FPS on Fortnite; up to 440 FPS on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive; and up to 221 FPS on PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds", wrote VentureBeat. All three of these processors will apparently work on all Z300-series motherboards, so those who bought into Z370 past year will be able to drop a new CPU in after a BIOS update. It has a base frequency of 3.6 GHz rated at 95W TDP, and it improves on previous generations with a turbo boost up to 5 GHz on two cores instead of one. The Core i9-9900K has eight cores and 16 threads, clocked at 3.6GHZ and up to 5GHz with a 16MB cache and 95W TDP.




"The Intel Core i9-9900K is the best gaming processor in the world", the firm stated at its press event. Some users have taken to ripping off the IHS, a process known as delidding, to replace Intel's thermal interface material with liquid metal for better temps. In dual-mode we have 4.8GHz, while 4-core mode hits 4.7GHz and 6/8-core mode it'll reach 4.6GHz. Like their 8th generation predecessors, these CPUs will offer up to 40 PCI-E lanes. We don't know if this is a refresh of Skylake-X at the moment, but we are hoping to have that question answered soon. The product will begin shipping in December, but as yet there is no word on pricing.

Also new: These chips are the first to include hardware fixes for some variants of the Meltdown and Spectre flaws. 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. Intel's 9th Gen Core-X series and K-series also finally switch from TIM to Solder, which should help with thermals quite a bit. Intel has even gone as far to claim its new processors will run TK% cooler than its previous 8th Generation chips.
