The Intel Core- series of processors have now received their latest upgrade in the form of the Coffee Lake-S Refresh. This new updated range brings some highly sought after improvements, including the fact that CPUs with unlocked multipliers now offer soldered heatspreaders (IHS). This enables heat to be more effectively dissipated away from the CPU, allowing higher clock frequencies over longer periods of time.
The Intel Core i7-9700K is the new high-end model in the Core 9000- series and includes eight cores. The processor also impresses with its high clock frequencies and optimised boost functions in comparison to its predecessors. The TDP of the octa core processor is also exceptionally low at just 95 Watts. The processor is compatible with Socket 1151 motherboards from the 300- series.
