Intel Core i9

Since 2017, the Intel Core i9 processors have stood for maximum performance in the end customer segment. The Intel Core i9 processors have even more cores than Intel's previous top series, the Core i7. As of 2022, Intel will be offering the Intel Core i9 processors with up to 14 CPU cores in the mobile sector and with up to 16 CPU cores in the mainstream desktop sector. In order to enable the high clock rates, only the best chips are used in the Intel Core i9 series.The Intel Core i9 processors have high basic clock rates, which can be significantly increased again in Turbo mode. Since these are very powerful processors, both notebooks and desktop PCs or workstations must be very well cooled in order not to limit the full performance of the processors. Apple has installed a new cooling technology in the Apple MacBook 16 to ensure maximum performance.All Intel Core i9 processors with a K in the product designation can be overclocked, there are even mobile processors with a free multiplier. These can be recognized by a final HK in the product designation. Since 2019, Intel has also been offering the so-called F variants, in which the internal graphics card (iGPU) is deactivated. In return, the processors are available at a reduced price.Since the end of 2019, competitor AMD has been countering the Intel Core i9 processors with the Ryzen 9 processors, which are currently available with up to 16 cores in the mainstream desktop area. The Intel processors are manufactured in a process called Intel 7 (approx. 10 nm), which is said to be roughly comparable to TSMC's 7 nm production. Technically, the current Intel processors are roughly on the same level as the AMD models.The Intel Core i9 processors can manage at least 128 GB of RAM in at least two memory channels. With the high-end desktop platforms, up to 256 GB of main memory in 4 memory channels is possible.
