Intel finally officially launched the ninth generation processor line. The ninth generation processors include Core i5, Core i7, and flagship processors which will appear first in general, Core i9. In addition, Intel also inaugurated, Intel Core X series. The unique thing that needs to be highlighted is the Core i9 gaming processor, which is claimed to be the best gaming processor in the world. As quoted from a written statement received by KompasTekno, Tuesday (10/9/2018), Core i9 is claimed to have the ability to increase FPS games by 10 percent from the previous generation, and 37 percent from Intel processors that are 3 years old. There is also an Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 feature, a feature to increase single-core capability to its maximum capability (5.0 GHz).
The content creators also claimed to be more ‘spoiled’ with the latest Core i9 technology, because in terms of multimedia, the processor increased its ability by 41 percent when recording games, video editing and rendering 34 percent faster, and process improvement in general by 15 percent from generation previous. In specification, summarized the Core i9-9900K type has 8 cores and 16 threads with a speed of 3.6 GHz for normal use, up to a maximum of 5 GHz for heavy processes such as design and gaming. L3 cache Core i9-9900K also has a capacity of 16 MB, equipped with an Intel UHD 620 graphics chip. In addition to Core i9, Intel also released a Core i7-9700K type with 8 cores and 8 threads, has a 12 MB L3 cache, and 3.6 GHz speed. – 4.9 GHz (turbo). Then there are Core i5-9600K 6 cores with 6 threads and the same large L3 cache, 12MB, speed 3.7 GHz – 4.5 GHz (turbo). The Intel Core type X has 7 product lines, i7-9800X, i9-9820X, i9-9900X, i9-9920X, i9-9940X, i9-9960X, and i9-9980XE. This type of Intel X processor is claimed to have 8 to 18 cores with Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 for more optimal performance than the regular series. In terms of size, these processors still use a large 14 nm, because Intel reportedly delayed the launch of the 10 nm processor until 2019. In fact, a 14nm processor will still be produced until 2019.

This feature has long been introduced by Intel, namely when the second generation Intel Core processor, Sandy Bridge, was introduced in 2011. QuickSync itself is a core in the Intel Core I processor that can do video encoding and decoding. This is indeed similar to what is owned by the graphics card from NVIDIA and AMD. Converting videos using the QuickSync function will save you many times over. For example, when we tested video conversion from H.264 to DivX using the processor part of Core i9 and Cyberlink Media Espressor software, the time required was 1 minute 16 seconds. When using QuickSync, the time required is only 19 seconds. QuickSync cannot only be used for video conversion. This facility can also be used in other software such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Office, and so on. And the performance of each software will also increase when QuickSync is activated. As Intel’s processor generation increases, QuickSync’s capabilities are also enhanced. Starting from Kaby Lake, QuickSync can already convert videos with the H.265 / HEVC codec. So, this is suitable for those who work in the field of video editing.
Intel UHD 630
Almost all Intel processors starting from the Broadwell architecture are marketed using integrated graphics chips. For the Core i9 9900K, there is an integrated graphics called Intel UHD (Ultra High Definition) 630. Of course, the presence of an integrated graphics will create added value when this processor is not used to play games. This integrated graphics still uses the GT2 architecture used in the 8th generation of Intel Core I. Therefore, the graphics driver used is also the same as the previous generation. Then can this integrated graphics be used to play games? Yes and No! Intel UHD 630 can be used to play some old games, with a note that it does not use the highest settings. To be able to play more comfortably, of course a separate graphics card is needed.
Currently, the Core i9 9900k is the highest-performance consumer-class processor owned by Intel. This processor is suitable for use in work and play games. This also makes it have a high price, around Rp. 9,500,000. We also tested this one processor. Unfortunately indeed, we don’t yet have the right processor to compare it with the Core i9 9900K. Without having to linger anymore, here are the results of testing using synthetic benchmark software.
