Intel reveals new 9th gen Core CPUs, led by Core i9-9900K

I also observed a real-world photogrammetry demonstration with a Core i9-9900X, which managed to stitch together roughly 1,000 photos of a gallery in Smithsonian's American Art Museum into a virtual reality exhibition using the Reality Capture app in a bit less than one hour. Intel has the 4-core boost at 4.8GHz while 6/8-core CPU boost reaches 4.7GHz. The most eagerly awaited news, that was revealed today, concerned the new Core i9-9900K, i7-9700K and i5-9600K processors with STIM. Leading the new group of products is the Intel Core i9-9900K and yes, it will indeed come with that multi-sided translucent packaging.

Core i9-9900K: 8C/16T, 3.6/5.0GHz base/boost, 95W TDP. Coming with Intel's first consumer i9 processor also comes the first i7 desktop processor not to feature Hyper-threading.

The Core i9-9900K is the flagship model from this lineup.

The supporting act today is the Core i5-9600K, with six cores but no Hyperthreading. Switching to solder should make the delicate process of delidding less appealing on these new chips.

Senate barely advances to final Kavanaugh vote
The US Senate has narrowly advanced President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to a final vote. In a twist, Murkowski said she would state her opposition but vote "present" as a courtesy to Kavanaugh supporter Sen.

The new 9th Gen Intel Core desktop processors will be made available in the market starting from 19 October onwards globally. In addition to native USB 3.1 Gen 1 (10 Gbit/s) support, Intel claims the Z390 chipset will sport improved power management for the 8-core processor variants, as well as integrated 802.11 AC connectivity. There wasn't a whole lot of hype around the event, and considering it was the first desktop processor launch in the wake of the hugely successful Ryzen 2 series from AMD earlier this year, we're a little underwhelmed.

The Core i9 part is expected to hit 5GHz out of the box and will use a new solder-based thermal interface material (TIM) between the dies and the heat spreader in order to boost cooling and hopefully overclocking performance, but as far as we know this is the only part of the new family to do so.

Indian Astronaut May Pay A Short Visit to International Space Station
NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine plans to meet Rogozin - their first in-person encounter - when he attends the launch. An air leak occurred due to a small hole in the spacecraft at the International Space Station at the end of August.

We are now at a launch event for this processor, and will share further details if and when we can.
