The Intel Core i7-9700K processor would be etched in 14nm++. Surprisingly enough, it would have 8 cores and 8 threads. Current video games still do not handle very well processors with more than 8 threads. That’s why this chip could be very powerful for the latest games with advanced graphics. The CPU would have a base frequency of 3.6 GHz, a Turbo frequency of 4.9 GHz and 12 MB of cache memory.
Announced in August 2018, in September of the same year, in the beginning of 2019, then finally in October 2018, it is this last date which seems most likely. The slides in the roadmap look more like what Intel produces. It is the most expected processor by consumers, AMD will be forced to broadcast its AMD Ryzen 7 2800X to hope to counter his competitor.
According to the high-tech journalists, the price could be set at 350 dollars. The Intel Core i7-8700K processor had yet been initiated with a price of 420 dollars.
