Intel: 9th Generation Processors Bring Amazing Performance for Desktops and Notebooks

Intel's 9th generation processor is already a reality and promises high performance for both desktop, desktop and notebook PCs with gamers and image editors.

9th Generation Intel Processors

In a statement sent to the press, the company claims that the new line of processors has technologies that accelerate the exchange of information over the internet as well as reading and writing data to solid-state memory (SSD stands for Solid State Drive with translation free for “Solid Storage Disk”).

Six models of 9th generation notebook processors called the H - line, are detailed, ranging from the widely known i5 to i9. They all have, in the model code, the number “9” at the beginning and the letter “H” at the end, the i9-9980HK being the most powerful model - something for consumers to keep an eye on when choosing the latest technology. to buy.

Intel 9th ​​Generation Notebook Specifications

The new processors are designed to offer portability to those who want gaming machines as well as those who use the notebook for video editing and streaming content, all with high performance, according to Fredrik Hamberger, Managing Director of Premium Segment and Gaming Intel laptop.

“The 9th generation platform is designed to appeal to high-performance gamers, creators and users by offering exactly what they want. We bring the same performance from desktops up to 5 GHz and 8 cores across a range of thinner systems, not to mention a new level of connectivity provided by Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +). That way users can play and create wherever they want. ”Fredrik Hamberger, Managing Director of Intel's Premium Segment and Laptop Gaming

Wi-Fi 6 technology , cited by Fredrik , enables high-speed wireless connectivity, which is great for online gaming and simultaneous internet streaming. The same goes for Thunderbolt 3 technology , which gives an upgrade to the speed of the wired connection.

Another technology present in processors is Intel Optane , which, when used in conjunction with compatible memories (SSD), allows for an even greater increase in application openness.
The new parts feature up to eight cores and up to 16 MB cache, and are comparable to desktops with up to 5.0 GHz processors. This performance enables up to 33% higher performance compared to desktops from three years ago - which is considerable, when we consider that these are notebooks.
Desktop line

There are also 9th generation processors designed for desktop computers in a total of 27 products. The new chips have four to eight cores, depending on the model, which can be i3 , i5 , i7 or i9 .

Also of note is the support for DDR4 RAM. Processors support up to 64 GB of memory, which can run at a transfer speed of up to 2666 MT / s.

The wide range of products allows Intel to locate itself in the market to appeal to customers who need computers from daily productivity to those who prefer high performance tough machines.

The same performance-enhancing technologies found in notebook models - Wi-Fi 6 , Thunderbolt 3, and Intel Optane - are featured in desktop versions. In addition, processors enable significant frame rate per second gains in video games and faster video editing in 4K.

Imaging Performance

In addition to attention to performance, Intel was also concerned with making its 9th generation processors capable of displaying high quality images.

As such, the company claims that the new chips support streaming 4K quality still images and video, as well as High Dynamic Range ( HDR ), a technology that is already widely used. by televisions and video game consoles to represent brighter, sharper colors in both lighter and darker areas, with black prevailing.

The "unlocked" processor line model can reach speeds above 5.0GHz

In addition, the line has the ability to process modern codecs with total fluidity, such as the HEVC 10-bit encode / decode and VP9 10-bit decode , used for streaming video over the internet.
For demanding people

By way of comparison, Intel warrants that the new i9-9980HK model has a 56% frame rate gain per second compared to the i7-6700HQ model released three years ago in tests conducted with the Total War: Warhammer II game. . Such performance is sufficient for good performance in AAA games - as blockbusters are called , ie the biggest releases in the gaming industry.

Intel's 9th-generation processors have already been released - on April 23rd - and some companies, such as Asus , Dell and Lenovo, have already confirmed that they will use them in notebooks made by them, and should appear on the market soon.

As for desktop models, it is already possible to buy them separately, with prices that go from R $ 2,600 , for the model i9-9900k . Other models can be found for more affordable prices, such as the i5-9600K , which costs around $ 1,330 .
