As early as October, Intel is expected to announce its 9th gen Core lineup, still on the 14 nm Coffee Lake architecture, that will be bringing, for the first time, 8 cores to the mainstream market.

The Core i7-9700K, meanwhile, would be the first mainsteam 8-core i7 part.

If you were expecting anything bigger then allow us to disappoint you as, really the ninth-gen chips are mild upgrades on their predecessors, unless Intel has been keeping something very well hidden up its corporate sleeves.

Wccftech claims that Intel will introduce its Core i9, i7, and i5 chips on October 1st. It too would start at 3.6GHz, although its boost speed would top out at 4.6GHz for all cores (4.9GHz for one core) and would only support eight threads. The upcoming chip is said to include 16MB of L3 cache and Intel's UHD 620 graphics.

The exact release window of these CPUs still remains unclear, although a recent leak indicated a possible October release of the 9900K, 9700K, and 9600K. First to be launched will be the company's unlocked, overclockable processors. Please refer to the table for the turbo speeds with regard to the Core i7-9700K. Also really interesting, it'll do a boost up to 4.7 GHz on all cores. When all eight cores are engaged, it will still be able to make 4.7GHz, as per WCCFTech.
