Featuring 8-cores and 16-threads capability, Intel stated that the Core i9-9900K is the company's first ever mainstream chip with such setup. Intel's Anand Srivatsa, VP and GM in the Client Computing Group, claimed on stage that his firm has tested the new i9-9900K against the competition and previous gen CPUs and "The results are absolutely clear".

Intel's pricing for trays of 1,000 CPUs comes in at $488 for the Core i9-9900K, $374 for the Core i7-9700K, and $262 for the Core i5-8600K.

The Core i9-9900K is the flagship model from this lineup. This processor has base and boost speeds of 3.6GHz and 4.9GHz, with a 12MB cache. Both processors maintain the same 95W TDP as the i7-8700K.

Price-wise, both the i5-9600K and i7-9700K are similar to the 8th generation processors they are replacing, while the i9-9900K will come in at $500. This is quite a different configuration to its predecessor, the Core i7-8700K with 6C/12T but the same base Coffee Lake architecture.
