Intel announces six new 9th generation Core processors and here they are

Intel has just announced six new 9th generation Core processors at CES 2019.

We weren't given details during the keynote but we now know what they are.

They are the:

  • Core i3-9350KF
  • Core i5-9400F
  • Core i5-9400
  • Core i5-9600KF
  • Core i7-9700KF
  • Core i9-9900KF

For the uninitiated, the 'K' suffix denotes that the CPU us overclockable while the 'F' suffix means it comes without integrated graphics.

These six processors will join the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K which were launched in October last year. Here's how the new processors (in bold) stack up against the three existing ones:

Model Cores Base clock Turbo clock IGPU TDP
Core i9-9900K 8/16 3.6GHz 5GHz UHD 630 95W
Core i9-9900KF 8/16 3.6GHz 5GHz - 95W
Core i7-9700K 8/8 3.6GHz 4.9GHz UHD 630 95W
Core i7-9700KF 8/8 3.6GHz 4.9GHz - 95W
Core i5-9600K 6/6 3.7GHz 4.6GHz UHD 630 95W
Core i5-9600KF 6/6 3.7GHz 4.6GHz - 95W
Core i5-9400 6/6 2.9GHz 4.1GHz UHD 630 65W
Core i5-9400F 6/6 2.9GHz 4.1GHz - 65W
Core i3-9350KF 4/4 4GHz 4.6GHz - 91W

It has been awhile since Intel released processors without integrated graphics and it is likely a move that will help them increase yields. Such a waste to bin processors if the cores are working fine but the IGPU wasn't. More importantly, they provide alternatives for system builders and DIY enthusiasts.

The official word from Intel is that these processors will begin shipping at the "end of January." 9th generation Core mobile processors will be released in Q2 later this year.
