Intel Core i9-9900K 9th Gen Coffee Lake-R CPU Preorder Pricing Allegedly Leaked

Intel's 9th generation Core processors are right around the corner, which means that the leaks are coming more frequently. In recent weeks, we've seen a slew of Intel Z390-based motherboards leaked from the usual suspects like ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte. Now, we're getting an alleged early look at pricing for the Core i7-9700K and the flagship Core i9-9900K that are supposed to launch early next month.

According to Silicon Lottery, the Core i7-9700K will be priced at $370. This processor will have a total of 8 cores and despite its Core i7 branding will not be HyperThreading-enabled. That means that it will only support 8 total threads. For comparison, the 8-core/16-thread Core i7-8700K is priced at $379.89 on Amazon.

As for the Core i9-9900K, it's reportedly priced at $480. For comparison, the current Core i7-8086K (6 cores, 12 threads) has an MSRP of $425. The Core i9-9900K will reportedly have 8 cores and 16 threads, putting it on a more equal footing with AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X. However, AMD will definitely have the pricing advantage as its top 8-core/16-thread enthusiast chip is priced at $320.

With that said, here are the full specs for Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake Refresh processors:

  • Core i9-9900K: 8 cores / 16 threads, 3.6GHz to 5GHz, 16MB L3 cache, 95W TDP
  • Core i7-9700K: 8 cores / 8 threads, 3,6GHz to 4.9GHz, 12MB L3 cache, 95W TDP
  • Core i5-9600K: 6 cores / 6 threads, 3.7GHz to 4.6GHz, 9MB L3 cache, 95W TDP

In recent weeks, we've seen the Core i9-9900K overclocked to 5GHz across all 8 cores, with it putting up comparable scores to the Core i9-7900X (10 cores, 20 threads). Likewise, there have also been benchmark leaks featuring the Core i7-9700K conforming that it has HyperThreading support disabled. That chip was able to overclock to 5.5GHz across all 8 cores.
