Intel Said to Introduce a Core i9 CPU

A forum member at AnandTech posted what is purported to be an internal slide outlining a new crop of Core i9 processors. The chips would be aimed at the high-end performance market, and the specifications they offer will likely bring prohibitively high prices with them. Although there is no news about the pricing of these chipsets, Intel is expected to keep the prices competitive considering the stiff competition from Ryzen. These will also launch in June, reports say, and they will target the same market segment as Intel's latest products.

Both of these CPUs will reach 112W TDP, which is hot but not as much as the reported 140W of the Skylake-X units.

Word from the CPU grapevine is that Intel is turning up the dial another notch on its processors, with the introduction of Core i9 models as a new high-end option.

Then, finally, we have the Kaby Lake-X parts, which appear to be the same as the Kaby Lake-S parts that launched back in January of this year but are created to work with the X299 platform.

Of the two new Kaby Lake-X CPUs, the Core i7-7740K processor is the more powerful with four cores, supporting eight threads, 8Mb of L3 cache, and a base clock frequency of 4.3GHz with Turbo 2.0 pitched at 4.5GHz. Some leaks say they could go up to 160W, which is a bit worrisome without some serious cooling mechanism. Base clock and turbo frequencies are all TBD, but the chip supposedly has 16.5MB of L3 cache.

The chip would feature a total of 13.75 MB cache, that's 1.375 MB per core.

The chip will be clocked at 3.6 GHz base, 4.3 GHz boost with Turbo 2.0 and 4.5 GHz base with Turbo 3.0. Its clock starts ticking at 4.3 GHz and it stops at 4.5 GHz after overclock.

Core i9-7800X: 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.5GHz base, 4GHz Turbo, no Turbo Boost 3.0, 8.25MB L3, 28 lanes of PCIe 3.0. Base clock on this CPU is 3.3 GHz and it supports Turbo 2.0 and Turbo 3.0, taking performance to a maximum 4.5 GHz. This is accompanied by two Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake-X CPUs. Hours after the Core i9 leak, details about a challenger processor came out. Intel's Broadwell-E based 10-core chip offered a maximum turbo boost 2.0 speed of only 3.5GHZ, which meant the user had to push the chip to higher-than-rated speeds just to match Intel's $350 chips in tasks that couldn't use more than four cores.

COMPUTEX Taipei takes place this year from May 30 to June 3, and Intel is rumored to unveil the new processor series at the event with availability following that same month.
