The i9-9900K may be Intel's most powerful consumer processor

Apparently, it will come with two other 9000K processors.i9-9900K

Apparently, Intel is baking a new batch of 9000 series processors that will culminate with the Core i9-9900K, an eight-core, 16-core chip that will become the most powerful consumer processor. In the market of the highest range, Intel has long exceeded that account of cores, but with processors that by themselves already cost the same as a decent computer. According to what we read in WCCFTech, Intel has three processors ready: the Core i9-9900K of eight cores and 16 threads, the Core i7-9700K of six cores and 12 threads, and the Core i5-9600K of six cores and six threads. The three will be unlocked in order to overclock them, and they should arrive accompanied by the newZ390 chipset.

Little is known about this chipset. A couple of months ago, Intel itself published a diagram on its official page in which it was (or was speculated) as a relaunch of the Z370 that included integrated Wireless 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0, in addition, to support for six USB 3.1 ports Gen2, but that diagram disappeared. Either way, it's interesting to see that Intel is interested in launching an eight-core processor for the conventional market. Until now, AMD was the only one of the two to have one of those characteristics. Let the nuclei race follow!
