A few days ago, through an event held in New York, USA, Intel introduced its latest line of desktop processors, Core 9th Gen. This new line of desktop processors comes about one year after Intel launched the Core 8th Gen. their first on the desktop, like the Core i5-8400, Core i5-8600K, and Core i7-8700K. Several changes were presented by Intel for this new processor line, one of which is the use of the Soldered Thermal Interface Material (STIM), and core configuration changes in the Core 9th Gen product line. this. For an initial overview of the 9th Core Gen. this, you can read the articles that we have uploaded before: From New York, Intel Announces the Latest Desktop Processor Line!
There are three Core 9th Gen processors. for mainstream classes introduced by Intel, namely Core i5-9600K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i9-9900K. Shortly after the program in New York, USA, ended, one of the new processors landed in the lab. testing the Jagat Review team. The processor is the Core i9-9900K, which is currently Intel’s best processor for the ranks of their mainstream class desktop processors! This time, we will discuss the performance of the processor in this review article!
First Intel Core i9 on Mainstream Class Desktop
Before starting to discuss the performance of the Core i9-9900K, let’s briefly discuss the processor first. Before the Core 9th Gen era. this, Intel only offers Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 for the mainstream class of desktop processors. The previous Core i9 name was only used in the HEDT class (High-End Desktop). So, this Core i9-9900K is Intel’s first Core i9 on the mainstream class desktop.
Through the first Core i9 for mainstream desktop class, Intel offers octa-core processors, first for them for the segment. This means Intel has twice increased the number of cores for their fastest processors for mainstream desktop classrooms in the two latest generations of their processors. As is known, Intel previously offered the Core i7-8700K as a hexa-core processor, increasing from the quad-core they always offer to the Core i7 desktop since the beginning of the presence of the Core i Series in the mainstream class, in 2009. The following is a brief specification table of the three Core 9th Gen processors. the mainstream desktop class announced by Intel some time ago:
