It’s new hardware time - Intel has officially announced the launch event for its next-gen Intel Core processors will be taking place tomorrow, October 8th, at 10am EDT.
Intel will be live-streaming the launch of its 9th-Gen CPUs tomorrow, as well as the arrival of the Z390 chipset platform.
There have been leaks aplenty in regards to Intel’s CPU lineup so we should, in theory, know exactly what we’re getting. Barring any major surprises, the Intel Core i9-9900K should be the new flagship cheap, while the Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors will all be surrendering multithreading in favour of higher core clock speeds.
“Every PC user is unique, with a wide variety of performance needs and requirements to ensure their success,” says Intel.
“Tune in at 10 a.m. EDT (7 a.m. PDT) on Monday, Oct. 8, on the Intel Newsroom to learn more about the latest PC performance developments from Intel.”
Intel's 9th Gen processors will be sticking with a revised 14nm process after issues with 10nm fabrication. Small to moderate gains over 8th Gen Coffee Lake is anticipated, although we don't expect these new processors to be particularly groundbreaking. However, it does offer Intel the opportunity to regain its stranglehold on the market after AMD's resurgence, provided Intel's supply can actually meet demand this time around.
