Now that's what I call Boost Clocks!

Intel i7 9700K and i9 9900K leaks showcase insane core Turbo speeds

Intel i7 9700K and i9 9900K leaks showcase insane core Turbo speeds

Intel's upcoming 9000 series of processors is probably the worst kept secret in the PC industry. We already know that the series is a Coffee Lake refresh and that the series' maximum core count has been upped from six to eight, equalising Intel's high-end core count to match AMD's Ryzen offerings.  

Today, courtesy of Benchlife.info, we have leaked boost clock tables for both Intel's i7-9700K and i9-9900K, revealing high boost clock speeds for both single-threaded and 8-threaded workloads, maxing out at 4.9GHz and 5.0GHz respectively on Intel's i7 and i9 CPUs. 

Moving to 8-core boost clocks, we can see that Intel's latest offerings can maintain clock speeds that are over 4.5GHz, with the i7 offering 8-core boost clocks of 4.6GHz while the i9 offers 8-core boost clocks of 4.7GHz, both of which are staggeringly high for a modern, non-overclocked processor. 

Intel's advantage over AMD is their ability to offer higher single-core clock speeds, something which Intel plans to leverage with their upcoming 9000 series processors.

Intel's 9000 series processors are expected to release in late September alongside new Z390 series motherboards, which will ship with native support for Intel's latest processors. All of today's 300-series will offer support for 9000-series CPUs through BIOS updates. 

You can join the discussion on Intel's i7-9700K and i9-9900K boost clock speed tables on the OC3D Forums.

Noting very carefully that it says "Max" before each one, meaning it is not guaranteed.

You'll likely need hefty cooling and a hefty board to match.Quote

well if these numbers are right i believe that intel will get rid of TIM.


otherwise these CPU would melt....Quote

I think there was a "Leak" a few weeks or months ago, that the next CPU's from Intel would be soldered and not using TIM.

What would be nice though is if Intel decided to sell "De-Lidded" CPU's already so you can choose to have a mount straight to the "Die" or use your own "TIM (Liquid Metal )", but then also sell some that have the IHS pre applied using Solder or TIM, for those who have no issues with the way they are.

I mean I bought my 7700K, and within a week it was de-lidded, simply because of the temps being so stupid, talking over 80c per core with a H100i V2 at "Stock" but de-lidded same setting's, it hit's just over 60c per core with a H100i V2 using OCCT AVX.Quote

If this doesn't require exotic cooling (or even just a big AIO) and a fancy motherboard, these CPUs will pretty much own Ryzen+ in terms of performance. Intel will be back on top of the performance charts across the board. This is will be great for people who want to buy AMD because it will likely spell a big price drop for Ryzen+. We could see the 2700X drop to €250.Quote
