In this special episode of the Full Nerd, Gordon Mah Ung is joined by Anand Srivatsa, Intel’s desktop VP, to talk about all the new 9th-gen Core and Core-X processors announced in New York this week, including “the world’s best gaming CPU,” the Core i9-9900K.
Srivatsa explains why the ultra-fast, 8-core, 16-thread Core i9 9900K ($530 preorder on Amazon) lays claim to that title. He also talks about the wild 28-core Xeon W-3175X barreling down the pipeline, and what creators can expect from the new massively multi-core Core X-series lineup. The theme of “buying the right CPU for you” weaves throughout the conversation, circling back to the Core i9-9900K and the now Hyper-Threading-less Core i7-9700K and Srivatsa’s response to why enthusiasts would opt for them over AMD’s 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 2700X and its lower $330 price.
