According to the latest rumors, Intel would launch the ninth generation of processors in October of this year, and would be a continuity generation, having delayed the manufacturing process to 10nm up to 2019. The ninth generation will simply be an improvement of the current manufacturing process to 14nm.
The top-end processor will be a core I9, specifically the 9900k and would have 8 cores and 16 threads of process, being the first processor intended for the general public to be sold as I9; It would have L3 cache 16MB and would mount an integrated graphics UHD 620.
As for the rest of the range, the i7 would also have 8 nuclei, but would remain without the 16 threads, that is we would have 8 cores and 8 threads and in the i5 as in the current generation, 6 cores and 6 threads.
Intel would first launch the processors with the unlocked multiplier and the remainder of the range at the beginning of 2019.
