  • 9900KS in October (and other Intel news)



    Quote





    The new Core i9–9900KS is the first CPU to offer a 5.0 GHz all-core turbo clock speed, taking the gaming performance leadership we have with the 9th Gen desktop product line and making it even better. This capability will allow games that depend on IPC and frequency, more than just raw core count, to offer better and more consistent frame rates. We showed press Hitman 2 running on the new 9900KS with all 16 threads running at 5.0 GHz with a light per-core load, further driving home the point that what gamers need is better overall performance, not just higher core counts.

    Note this is a blog by Ryan Shrout, Chief Performance Strategist at Intel. This is an official blog off-site, with a stated aim of providing better communication to the tech community without marketing getting in the way. Let's see how he does with that...




     




    So on the first part, the 9900KS with all core 5 GHz is almost upon us. It is interesting to note it is an all core turbo of 5 GHz, not a base clock. So, it wont surprise anyone that power consumption could be interesting. A "light per-core load" was specifically mentioned, implying 5 GHz turbo wont necessarily apply to all workload cases. This is not unexpected, we already have AVX offset, and Zen 2 isn't immune to that either as it boosts less under similar loads.

    Intel has dramatic changes coming next month for the X-series and HEDT (high-end desktop market) line as well. The new family of products code-named Cascade Lake-X will offer up to 2x the performance per dollar of the previous generation. Though it is too early to talk about the specifics of how we are accomplishing this, you will see soon enough our commitment to the X-series and W-series families across Intel.






    Intel HEDT users may be interested to note here a claim of "2x the performance per dollar" compared to current gen. There is a chart showing how Skylake-X compares against TR2, and Cascade Lake-X reaching double that. Before AMD fans shout TR3, Intel can only compare with what exists. TR3 will surely give a nice boost over TR2 also, so it will be interesting to see how that lines up when we eventually hear about it. On TR3, last solid info I saw was that Su said she'll talk about it this year.




     




    There's also some stuff about mobile but I stopped reading at that point.
