Intel reveals 28-core Xeon W-3175X aimed at pro users

035-intel-performance-unleashed-2018-cnet

Aside from the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K and Core i5-9600K, Intel also unveiled its new Core-X processors. 14nm should have been replaced by 2017 at the latest; the fact that Intel will still be shipping it in 2019 as a leading-edge node is likely responsible for the node's excellent performance. Intel has also said that the all-core frequency for the i9-9900K is 400 MHz faster than the i7-8700K.

The highest-end Core i7 chip is the new Core i7-9700K which is an 8C/8T offering, with 12MB of cache (compared to 16MB on the 9900K) and a base CPU clock of 3.6GHz and boost of 4.9GHz for single-core mode.

Intel also learned from some of its earlier mistakes and has made a decision to use soldered thermal interface material (STIM) on these three 9th generation Core CPUs, which should provide increased thermal conductivity between the CPU and the IHS, provide better heat dissipation, and make the de-lidding unnecessary. Intel has the 4-core boost at 4.8GHz while 6/8-core CPU boost reaches 4.7GHz. They are however still on the 14nm architecture, so there is a real sense that the industry is holding its breath in anticipation of Intel launching their 10nm Cannon lake series at some point next year.

Core i9-9980XE: 18C/36T, 3.0/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $1,979 MSRP.

Core i7-9800X: 8C/16T, 3.8/4.4GHz base/boost, 165W TDP, $589 MSRP.

20 dead in upstate NY crash involving limousine
The store manager, Jessica Kirby, told The New York Times the limo was coming down a hill at "probably over 60 miles per hour ". Everyone inside the limousine, including the driver, died in the crash, and all those killed Saturday were adults, police added.

The supporting act today is the Core i5-9600K, with six cores but no Hyperthreading. 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.

All these new processors come with hardware fixes for the Meltdown Variant 3 and L1 Terminal Fault issues.

You can preorder the new chips now and Intel will start delivering them on October 19.

Alongside these new processors comes the launch of a new chipset from Intel, Z390. There's also a new Xeon chip, the Xeon W-3175X, for use in workstation PCs to support highly specialized hardware and software such as ECC memory.

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