Intel’s long-awaited 9th generation flagship Processor, Core i9-9900K, was briefly listed on Amazon US site for $ 582.50.
Amazon has since pulled back the listing.
A Twitter user, momomo_us, posted a picture of the Amazon listing in the Twitter feed.
According to the Twitter picture, the new Intel processor is packaged in a transparent blueish dodecahedron die shaped box with “Core i9” printed in the bright hue of orange.
If you are a fan of the video game called Destiny, then you are familiar with engrams which are also dodecahedron in shape. A dodecahedron has twelve sides.
Core i9-9900K is the first of Intel’s 8-core 16-thread processors for the desktop environment. This processor can be turbo boosted up to 5 GHz speed. It is suitable for serious gamers and those doing processor intensive jobs.
Intel’s Core i9-9900K processor is undoubtedly the answer to AMD’s high-end Ryzen Threadripper processor which is available in 8 to 32 cores and up to 64 processing threads.
This new processor will be compatible with Z370 motherboards. Although, Intel will be releasing new Z390 chipset soon for new motherboards to go along with Core i9-9900K processor.
Little Information we know about Intel Core i9-9900K
From the limited information we can gather from the leaked Amazon listing, the new processor will have better intra-processor cooling feature. Intel has achieved this by using Indium solder between its heatspreader and the processor die.
This new cooling advancement will benefit the processor during over-clocking or turbo boost mode of up to 5 GHz.
Amazon has since removed the listing. It’s certainly a tease, and Amazon is good at it. The retail price when officially released may be different; be informed.
