Intel Officially Confirms Core 9000 Series; Core i3-9000 up to Core i5-9600K

Intel officially confirms Core 9th Gen CPUs based on Coffeelake S, these processors will not come with a new micro-architecture. Instead, they will come with the same Coffee Lake design. Some speculated that the successor to the 8th generation family could be the 10nm+ Ice Lake, others believed it would be part of a Coffee Lake Refresh but it’s another Coffee Lake refresh.

As revealed by microcode update guidance file. The Coffee Lake S series featuring 6+2 and 4+2 configurations are now listed with Core i5-9600(K), Core i5-9500(T), Core i5-9400, Core i3-9100 and Core i3-9000 SKUs. However the rumoured Intel i7 9700K eight-core CPU is absent from this list, which necessitates a new die design.

 

As Videocardz points out, these new CPUs are 100MHz to 200MHz faster than what will become their predecessors, maintaining the same core and thread counts and TDP.

Intel’s Z390 chipset is expected to launch alongside the new processors, according to the leaks, they’re rebranding Z370 to Z390 with some new packed features. Support for up to six USB 3.1 (10 Gbps) ports, and introduces a built in wireless networking MAC for dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi use via Intel’s new integrated connectivity feature.
