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

Intel is expected to launch the 9th generation Intel Core processors on October 1.

Wccftech claims that Intel will introduce its Core i9, i7, and i5 chips on October 1st.

8 cores are what the Core i7 will get as well, granted, with 8 threads, while the Core i5 will feature 6 cores and 6 threads. To start we must restate that current rumours point to the upcoming desktop Core-i7 chips offering 8C/8T and the i9 chips 8C/16T. Intel notably launched the Core i9-8950HK as the first Core i9 processor for notebooks in April, following the the high-end desktop Core i9 models as part of its Core X-series previous year.

The Intel i9 9900K is an eight-core / sixteen-thread monster set to take on the core dominance from AMD's Ryzen lineup. The upcoming chip is said to include 16MB of L3 cache and Intel's UHD 620 graphics.

Less exciting would be a range of mid-tier Core i5-9600K processor with six cores, six threads, a 3.7GHz base clock and a 4.3GHz boost with all cores (4.6GHz with one).

The clock speeds, cache size and thermal design power (TDP) of the entire 9th-gen family was also revealed in the leaked document, as well as approximate pricing for the three flagships. Four cores can run together at 4.8GHz, and it can utilise 6 or all physical cores and still achieve 4.7GHz. Not only will this be the first mainstream desktop Core i9, but it also comes with 8 cores and 16 threads.
