I also observed a real-world photogrammetry demonstration with a Core i9-9900X, which managed to stitch together roughly 1,000 photos of a gallery in Smithsonian's American Art Museum into a virtual reality exhibition using the Reality Capture app in a bit less than one hour. Intel has the same 95W TDP on the 9700K. At the top of the pile, you'll find the Core i9-9900K at £599.99, then you have the Core i7-9700K at £499.99 and finally, the Core i5-9600K for £389.99. This new CPU will boost up to 5Ghz per core and feature 8 cores / 16 threads, making it the most powerful consumer processor ever released. This is quite a different configuration to its predecessor, the Core i7-8700K with 6C/12T but the same base Coffee Lake architecture. The Core i7 model interestingly has eight cores, compared to six with the Core i7-8700K, but this model lacks Hyper-Threading which means that the total thread count has actually declined from 12 to eight.
Switching back to solder as the TIM for these CPUs should provide significantly improved thermal conductivity, resulting in additional overclocking headroom as well as cooler and quieter operation at stock frequencies without the need of delidding.
Facebook launches video device, says privacy is 'very, very, very important'
The devices understand voice commands as well, allowing users to say "Hey Portal " before asking it to call one of their contacts. For those concerned about privacy , both Portals have a button that mutes their mics, as well as a physical cover for the camera.
The platform supports six channels of DDR4-2666 memory with a maximum capacity of 512GB and offers 68 PCIe lanes. All of the 9th gen CPUs will work on current 300-series motherboards, as well as the new Z390 motherboards coming soon. There wasn't a whole lot of hype around the event, and considering it was the first desktop processor launch in the wake of the hugely successful Ryzen 2 series from AMD earlier this year, we're a little underwhelmed. This processor ships in a new dodecahedron-shaped box which Intel thinks buyers will want to show off. The Core i5-9600K will cost $262, the Core i7-9700K is $373, and the Core i9-9900K is $488. No word on the rest of the 9th generation lineup, but we expect them to launch at the same time as the i9 processor.
