The wait finally ends: Intel has announced the long-awaited 9th generation of its desktop processors for mid-range and high-end, with which it intends to compete and surpass AMD. Three will be chosen for this purpose: i9-9900K, i7-9700K and i5-9600K, where only one of them will achieve the long-awaited figure of 5 GHz.
Although the Intel Core i7-9700K has not yet been released, nor is it expected until next October, a user has had the luck to get one of these processors to test it, which has not taken long in submit to an overclock session, in which it has managed to reach 5.5 GHz.
Despite being only a few hours away from the official launch of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti and RTX 2080 graphics cards, leaks continue to occur with respect to the new cards. Although this last leak is more the confirmation of something that we had already talked about in the past. And it is the fact that NVIDIA has chosen to provide its Founders Edition model with a heatsink that would dispense with the traditional blower type heatsink, by one equipped with two fans on its body.
A new filtration would confirm the few differences between the current chipset Z370, and Intel’s new top-end chipset, the Z390 chipset, which would hit the market simultaneously with the launch of the upcoming Coffee Lake-R processors, whose latest rumors they place it during the next month of October of this year 2018.
In what may be nothing but a red herring unintentionally, the web of AMD France has made public the details of performance of the new processor AMD Threadripper 2990WX, the new processor top-end brand, with 32 inner cores and 64 data processing threads, thanks to the use of SMT (Simultaneous Multi Threading) technology.
The first benchmarks of what appears to be an engineering sample of Intel’s next star processor have been leaked: the Intel Core i9-990K. This processor will be the first processor of eight cores and 16 threads that will be part of the mid range of this manufacturer, entering direct competition with the range of AMD Ryzen 7 processors.
It has been leaked that Intel would have an NDA date scheduled for August 1, which is when the company would be launching a new processor. The really amazing thing about this new processor is that it would take the IHS welded to the internal die, to greatly improve the thermal conductivity inside the processor.
New benchmarks have come to light for the AMD Ryzen 3 2300X processor, the quad-core and four-thread processor.. This new processor is called to replace the current AMD Ryzen 3 1300X, but will have a much improved boost rate, which can reach up to 4.2 GHz in clock speed.
The AMD Threadripper 2990X has reappeared, this time in the 3DMARK database. It is not the first time that we obtain information about the new processor presented in Computex 2018 by AMD. We are facing the processor of 32 cores and high performance of the company that will work on the chipset X399.
The new 632 chip from Qualcomm is positioned as the successor to the 630. It is the first time that the company brings to the mid-range its largest cores, the Kryo. Within this Snapdragon 632 we find 8 Kryo 250 cores, a cluster of 4 + 4, which are capable of operating at a speed of 1.8 GHz. In this SoC we find the Adreno 506 GPU and we can connect a 24 MP camera or a double camera of 13 MP each using ISP. The maximum screen resolution will be FHD +.
