A complete list of Intel’s 9th Gen processors and what do they mean

Intel’s 9th Gen processor family felt ever so incomplete until now. The performance-oriented Coffe Lake-based unlocked CPUs are now joined by more performance oriented chips. Although this time, the listing also includes mobile processors alongside a few other interesting slabs of silicon. If you wanna know about the previously released K-processors, click here. As of now, we have a total of 16 processors (9 officially released) in the 9th Gen family, and that’s excluding the X-series.

Intel’s F suffix

Let’s take the i9-9900KF for example, it’s basically a 9900K without it’s integrated GPU. These processors are (hopefully) slightly cheaper than it’s counterparts and won’t work without a dedicated GPU. A total of four F suffix CPUs have emerged, covering all, including the Core-i3 lineup. All share identical specs and CTP scores as compared to their non-F suffix chips (provided there is one).

CPU Model Number Core/Thread Count Base Frequency Turbo Frequency Composite Theoretical Performance (CTP)
Intel Core i9 9900KF 8C/16T 3.6GHz 5GHz 705,600 MTOPs
Intel Core i7 9700KF 8C/8T 3.6GHz 4.9GHz 705,600 MTOPs
Intel Core i5 9600KF 6C/6T 3.7GHz 4.7GHz 550,683 MTOPs
Intel Core i5 9400F 6C/6T 2.9GHz 4.1GHz 431,617 MTOPs
Intel Core i3 9350KF 4C/4T 4.0GHz 4.6GHz 406,667 MTOPs

Intel’s 9th Gen Mobile Processors

Now, coming to the 9th Gen mobile processors, these are yet to go official or make its way to the Intel’s official website. But, the leaks do suggest a fair share of what we can expect. And, when was the last time a leak this good turned out to be false right? All of the leaked CPUs come with the H suffix, carry a modest 45W TDP and should create a new standard for the next-gen gaming laptops with RTX GPUs. Given that the 9980HK (unlocked) can do 5GHz and comes with 8 cores on a portable system is pretty impressive.

CPU Model Number Core/Thread Count Turbo Frequency Composite Theoretical Performance (CTP)
Core i9-9980HK 8C/16T 5GHz 470,400 MTOPs
Core i9-9880H 8C/16T 4.8GHz 450,800 MTOPs
Core i7-9850H 6C/6T 4.6GHz 386,967 MTOPs
Core i7-9750H 6C/6T 4.5GHz 386,967 MTOPS
Core i5-9400H 4C/8T 4.3GHz 254,167 MTOPs
Core i5-9300H 4C/8T 4.1GHz 244,000 MTOPs

The non-suffix Intel Processors

Now, we’ve covered the KF processors, the mobile processors, and the K-series processors. All that’s left are those non-suffix desktop oriented CPUs that are locked, offer fairly decent performance, and best of all are budget friendly. There are currently two chips that fall under this category. The i5-9400 is official and should be available starting soon enough. Either way, both should be a favorite among builders who want a capable affordable system.

CPU Model Number Core/Thread Count Turbo Frequency Composite Theoretical Performance (CTP)
Core i5-9400 6C/6T 4.1GHz 431,617 MTOPs
Core i3-9100 4C/4T 4.2GHz 366,000 MTOPs
