PC Tech 5 GHz All Core Boost

Recommended Posts

Intel Core i9-9900KS ‘5 GHz All Core Boost’ Flagship Mainstream CPU Available in October – Claiming Clock Speed Leadership By Delivering Advertised Boost Clocks

Quote

New special edition desktop gaming processor: Intel previewed the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS special edition processor, the first to feature all 8 cores running at a turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz, making the world’s best gaming desktop processor even better.

Intel also showcased how the company is optimizing ultimate real-world performance on the most popular games running on Intel processors with both hardware and software innovations. Through the years, Intel has optimized hundreds of games by working with hundreds of thousands game developers.

 

:shock:

:lol: Looks like Intel really wants to stick to AMD's current boost clock issues. The problem is,  for mainstream users, its no longer about who has the speed crown, but rather who has solid enough  chips at good prices. This heavily bind'd crop of i9-9900Ks is nice, but won't really move the needle much at all. Its really just  a way to say "we have the crown!" coming into the holiday season. Next year, we will hopefully see something actually worth upgrading to, instead of this PR event.

We ever gonna move beyond this 5GHz threshold? I feel like, overclocking included, we've been here foreeeever. And games still don't seem to utilize multiple cores as well as they do raw speed.

I wish, but until we can control temperatures better above the 5Ghz mark then it won’t happen. It’s the nature of the material’s thermal conductivity, so I suppose new material might reduce its profiles, but we aren’t there yet. The good news is that now that next gen consoles will have actual CPUs and not a calculator CPU, we should see much better usage of multicores in games going forward.

As long as operations/performance per mhz/ghz continues to increase, is there even a reason to exceed 5ghz?

Right, as long a IPCs continue to rise we are good. Really, we are mostly hamstrung by the GPU in most instances, especially if you game in resolutions above 1080P.

Memory bandwidth and latency also becomes important with increased speed and core counts. Zen 2 gets a huge boost with DDR 4000+ or tight timings.

I'm sure this 5 ghz chip needs fast memory too. 

 

Intel CPUs have shown to have fairly consistent performance whether ram speed is 2133mhz or 4000mhz (at least in gaming situations, unsure about others). AMD’s Ryzen architecture has always been very dependent on the speed and latency of system ram, however.

Intel has to figure out 7nm (or better) fabrication...
