IMPORTANT: Please check with your motherboard manufacturer for support. This processor is designed for use with Z390 chipset motherboards. Whilst it can work on Z370, B360 and H310 chipsets, motherboards based on these will require a BIOS update before they will work with this processor.
Is your PC letting you down? Look no further! Upgrade to Intel’s new flagship 9th generation CPU and experience ultimate power like never before.
Rip through your new games with complete ease and eliminate all stuttering and lag when running ultra high settings with a massive 8 cores over 16 threads, offering unparalleled performance for enthusiast gamers. Loading times are a thing of the past, Intel have worked closely with NVIDIA graphics cards and technology to give the most complete, stable gaming performance available
9th Generation Intel Core i9 Processor
9th Generation Intel processors have introduced the new Solder Thermal Interface Material (STIM) for a more efficient heat transfer that gives greater control over temperatures when overclocking and using your PC for long periods of time. Perfect for the power user or expert gamer who demand lower temperatures under heavy use. Fine tune your overclock with the free Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) to get the maximum performance.
Equipped with electric speed through the 3.6GHz base clock and the ability to push that up to a massive 5GHz when overclocked, the i9 9900KF allows you to experience the beautiful clarity of 4K content at 60Hz, whether that is settling down to your favourite movie or creating and editing great content, Intel have you covered. OpenGL version 4.5 support has drastically changed 3D vector graphics meaning much greater performance when handling high quality media.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
Support for DirectX 12 makes running large applications smoother than ever before, combined with 4K support at 60Hz, the newest 9th generation from Intel is set to be the best performance they can offer. If 8 cores and 8 threads isn’t enough, improved Turbo Boost 2.0 technology dynamically increases the CPU’s frequency range to give you that extra boost when needed in the heat of the moment.
Keeping the TDP at 95W and supporting up to 16x PCI-e lanes, Intel have made those long nights stressing over your workload a thing of the past. 14nm architecture and Turbo Boost 2.0 technology combined with the Hyper Threading Intel have perfected means thei9 9900KF delivers the best performance yet.
