So far Intel has maintained three levels in its Core processors, but the introduction of the AMD Ryzen and its commitment to more cores has made Intel are preparing a new alternative.
These are the Intel Core i9, which will appear in the next few weeks in two versions with 10 and 12 process cores and will also have up to 44 PCIe tracks to create desktop PCs with truly fantastic features.
Get ready for Core i9
Initially there will be four members of this new "split" of Intel processors with 6, 8, 10 and 12 cores and double threads running through HyperThreading technology. It is curious to see how the appearance of an Intel Core i9 was raised no less than eight years ago.
They all also offer improvements in the amount of level 3 cache, the number of PCIe tracks (more capacity of expansion) and a remarkable work frequency that of will be another of the key arguments again of these micros.
The more cores, that is, the lower the base working frequency, which is logical to avoid problems of overheating, although the new Turbo Clock 3.0 mode will allow to bring the frequencies to really high levels when necessary. We will have to wait for the official announcement to know prices, however.
