Intel i7-9700K appears on SiSoftware Database - Confirms Specifications

An i7 without hyperthreading?

Intel 9th Generation i9 9900K, i7 9700K and i5 9600K specifications leak

Intel i7-9700K appears on SiSoftware Database - Confirms Specifications

Intel's upcoming i7-9700K CPU has been found on the SiSoftware database, confirming several previously specifications of the processor. For starters, the processor is listed as using a Coffee Lake S client platform, which suggests that the processor will be usable on today's 300-series motherboards after a BIOS update. 

This database listing also confirms that the i7-9700K will lack hyperthreading, making it the first desktop-grade i7 processor to do so, offering users eight cores and eight threads. This change creates an unusual situation where Intel's previous generation i7 8700K could deliver more performance in selected workloads, with its six cores and twelve threads, though this depends on how well applications utilise higher thread counts and SMT technologies. 
 
Intel's i7-9700K will also feature a base clock of 3.6GHz, which is identical to the number listed in yesterday's Coolaler leaks, adding an extra layer of legitimacy to existing data leaks. Previous leakers have also stated that this processor with a maximum boost clock speed of 4.9GHz and 12MB of L3 Cache, which gives the i7-9700K the same amount of L3 Cache as the i7-8700K.

Intel is expected to release their next-generation of desktop processors within the next few months, offering eight-core processors on a mainstream socket for the first time, taking on AMD's Ryzen lineup with higher single-core clock speeds.

HT is not that import, it won't impact gaming performance especially for an i7 processor. As long as Intel is sure the game benchmark of 9700K is faster than 8700KQuote

who said all consumers are interested in gaming?


i gamed the last time when skyrim was released.
people who buy a 8 core system sure not mainly interested in gaming.


not with todays lousy optimizing of games for multicore CPU´s.Quote

Then why do you need an i7 K series CPU? Doing video editing? Picking up a cheaper xenon CPU can easily outperform i7 K with hyperthreading on multiple tasks.Quote

Not at all professional heavy workloads do better by throwing more cores at it. Sometime clock speed matters more.Quote
