Intel's 9th gen Core K-series CPUs will have soldered IHS

According to a set of fresh Intel slides that have shown up online, it appears that Intel will finally switch to soldered IHS on its upcoming 9th generation Coffee Lake-S Refresh CPUs.

Coming in October, the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and the Core i5-9600K should keep Intel in the desktop CPU market, especially since the Core i9-9900K is an 8-core/16-thread SKU with a base clock of 3.6GHz and Turbo clock of up to 5.0GHz. As detailed earlier and to much surprise, the Core i7-9700K will lack Hyper-Threading support.

What is important about these fresh slides leaked by Videocardz.com, is that Intel will finally switch to STIM (Solder Thermal Interface Material). The slide refers only to 8-core parts, so it is not clear if this includes the Core i5-9600K, a 6-core SKU in the lineup.

This means that overclockers and enthusiasts will no longer have to de-lid their CPU in order to get the best possible overclock.

Now that is good news for a change from Intel, that I9-9900K would be a nice part. Another thing 40 pci-e lanes, or at least up to 40 lanes...now if its 40 lanes that would be killer!

So, is it really time for me to upgrade? Hmm...

I tell you that 9900K looks like the real deal, Z390 MB won't cost a fortune, ram is getting cheaper, ssd are cheap right now....go for it...maybe wait for some reviews first...lol

I wouldn't mind the i7-9700K for my next rig. Hopefully Dell offers it.

Re: Intel's 9th gen Core K-series CPUs will have soldered IHS

Hi

Are those 40 PCI-E lanes attached to the i7 9099k or the chipset? I currently have the i7 8086k. I am limited to 16 PCI-E lanes. I cannot add another PCI-E card or my EVGA GTX 1070 will be limited to 8x!

Thanks
NBK

Thats the $64 question, that's why I went with the 7820X to get the 28 lanes...the up to 40 lanes should be in the cpu....I Hope, I haven't heard anything new on it, If I do I'll post it here!

Re: Intel's 9th gen Core K-series CPUs will have soldered IHS

No its combined with the chipset, here's what I just found!

Up to 16 threads, 5.0 GHz, 16 MB cache, and 40 platform PCIe lanes (16 CPU + 24 PCH)

Intel 9th Gen Core CPU Lineup Specs Confirmed, 8 Cores Rock Soldered IHS

Re: Intel's 9th gen Core K-series CPUs will have soldered IHS

hmm. So, is this the generation to upgrade to? And, if so is the 9900 worth $100 more than the 9700? I don't know...

Thanks fvbounty,

I have read the article in the link. I still see that number 16 PCIe lanes and it worries me. If you see the computer specs in the sig, i have been using 10+ years. I had no knowledge about about PCIe lanes on the CPU. I did not have to be concerned about it. I could add as many cards as i wanted. When i bought the Intel i7 8086k and Asus Maximus X Formula, i still knew nothing of PCIe lane limits. One day i added an USB 3.0 PCIe card to the Maximus X Formula, i noticed that my EVGA GTX 1070 was running at 8x. I had two PCIe USB 3.0 cards in my Maximus Formula with the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 and my AMD 9750 ran at 16x. I contacted Intel or Asus and they sent me a spec sheet on the 8086k showing the 16 PCIe lane limit! I should have waited and bought the ASUS Rampage VI Extreme with an Intel i9 10 core processor. If this Intel i9 9900k processors gives me extra PCIe lanes, i will have to buy sometime. I see 16 lanes on the CPU and 24 lanes on the PCH. I am still see 16 lanes which gives me pause.

Thanks
NBK

I ran my GTX 980Ti at 8X and only saw a 1% decrease in benchmarks and in games of FPS, so that really isn't a big deal, I never did notice a difference. That was in my old rig, I put in a Samsung 950 Pro nvme drive and that's when it went to 8X. If you want to use a M.2 drive it will run on the chipset PCIe lanes and it would work just fine and you would see maybe a 1 to 2% difference in speeds from running off your CPU lanes.

Thanks fvbounty!

I can add a PCIe sound card and/or USB 3 card without slowing my video card down. No need to buy an i9 9900k, unless i just want one.
