Intel introduced six new Core processors, the ninth generation.
In the database performance test SiSoftware found records of testing of the new processor called Intel Core i3-9100F. This chip has not been officially presented together with other representatives of the F-series, but apparently, soon Intel will add it to its range.
Recall that earlier this year Intel introduced six new Core processors, the ninth generation (Refresh Coffee Lake), most of whom belonged to the F series, which are deprived of integrated graphics. A little later, Intel introduced the Intel Core i3-8100F, which also lacks integrated graphics, but it refers to the Core of the eighth generation (Coffee Lake).
However, at the moment the description of Core i3-8100F has been removed from the official Intel website. Perhaps the company simply decided to rename it to Core i3-9100F to denote the belonging to the last series, whereby the processor would look “fresh”. Or Intel just decided not to release the Core i3-8100F, but instead to release the Core i3-9100F with some minor changes.
Anyway, Core i3-9100F is a processor with four cores and four threads. Its clock frequency according to SiSoftware, is 3.6 GHz. Note that the same frequency was reported for the Core i3-8100F. Also, the new processor has 6 MB cache in the third level and will offer 16 lanes PCI Express memory support DDR4-2400 and a TDP of 65 watts.
However, some rumors indicate that the novelty will receive other frequencies. According to one source, the frequency of the Core i3-9100F will be slightly higher – 3.7 GHz. In turn, the description of one of the Dell systems on the official website of the manufacturer, processor Core i3-9100 and it will be supports the Turbo Boost technology, which can automatically accelerate up to 4.2 GHz. In General, the question of the clock frequency of processors Core i3-9100 and Core i3-9100F remains open.
