9TH GEN K WILL SOLDER ON

Intel’s 9th gen­er­a­tion Core prod­uct line-up (Cof­fee Lake S) is al­most upon us. Word is that Intel will launch its new prod­ucts on Oc­to­ber 1st, and we fi­nally have some spec­i­fi­ca­tions to sali­vate over!

As you can see, Intel will only be launch­ing the un­locked K vari­ants. The rest of the 9th gen line-up will come out early next year.

This marks the first time that a core i9 prod­uct will ap­pear on the main­stream plat­form. The i7-9700K also marks the first i7 prod­uct to strangely not sup­port hy­per-thread­ing.

One fi­nal piece of in­for­ma­tion is the fact that these will fi­nally have sol­dered on in­te­grated heat spread­ers (IHS). Up un­til now Intel have been ap­ply­ing a thermal paste un­der­neath the IHS, rob­bing cool­ing so­lu­tions of up to 20°C in cool­ing per­for­mance and is why de-lid­ding Intel pro­ces­sors has be­come a fad of late. Sol­dered IHSs will help keep the tem­per­a­tures down and turbo clocks higher for longer.
