Intel Core i9-9900K confirmed to be soldered

We have some great news for those waiting for the new 9th Gen Core series.

Intel’s first “s-series” Core i9 CPU will be soldered

The Coffee Lake Refresh will launch in October. At launch, only three SKUs will be available: Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K (with Core i5-9400 coming in Q1 2019).

The documents that were shared with us anonymously, confirm that new processors will be soldered. It is unconfirmed whether Core i5-9600K is also using STIM (Solder Thermal Interface Material) because the files we have only refer to 8-core parts.

We can confirm that Core i9-9900K features 8-cores/16-threads, and it will clock up to 5.0 GHz in single-core turbo mode. This is the first (and only) Core i9 part for ‘S-Series’.

Intel’s Coffee Lake Refresh will, therefore, feature three Core series: i9, i7, and i5. Unfortunately, neither Core i7-9700K nor Core i5-9600K will support HyperThreading.

Pricing and performance metrics have not yet been confirmed by Intel (they will be available in September).
