Intel has revealed the new 9th Generation processors which will reach speeds up to 5 Ghz. The new processors are aimed at enthusiasts like gamers and video editors. The new processors are an upgrade to the older processors and will allow better overclocking.
The new Core i9-9900K is the first processor to hit 5 GHz speeds and can be pre-ordered now. The new mainstream chips cost starting at $262 for a 3.7GHz Core i5-9600K and $488 for the i7-9900, while the X-series starts at $589 for 8-core 3.8GHz i7-9800X and goes up to $1,979 for the 18-core, 3GHz i9-9980XE. With the new 9th Gen lineup, Intel is competing directly with the new AMD Ryzen lineup. However, AMD does hold an advantage in terms core count on the regular processors. That said, both the companies are going toe-to-toe to make sure they have processors with better performances and it will be interesting to see how they compete in the real-life scenarios.
