Update | More details of Intel's Coffee Lake T-series emerge: clock rates, core counts
Update April 15: It seems Intel will be releasing the new T-series of processors on May 15.
Intel has an upcoming T-series of processors to introduce to the world. These SoCs are part of the Coffee Lake family and they offer lower TDPs and lower clock rates than the non-restricted processors in this particular generation. We already knew the T-series would feature the UHD 630 iGPU and L3 cache from 9 MB to 16 MB. Now apparently we also have the core and thread counts for each SoC and most of their clock rates:
- i3-9100T: four cores/four threads, 3.10 – 3.70 GHz
- i3-9300T: four cores/four threads, 3.20 – x.xx GHz
- i5-9400T: six cores/six threads, 1.80 – 3.40 GHz
- i5-9500T: six cores/six threads, 2.20 – 3.70 GHz
- i5-9600T: six cores/six threads, 2.30 – 3.90 GHz
- i7-9700T: eight cores/eight threads, 2.00 – 4.30 GHz
- i9-9900T: eight cores/16 threads, 2.10 – 4.40 GHz
According to the information, only the top-end i9-9900T will offer Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology. The TDP stated for these chips is 35 W, which is considerably lower than the 65 W and 95 W TDPs of the other processors in the Coffee Lake generation. Although the T-series of processors will run on a lower TDP that does not necessarily mean performance will suffer too much. A Core i7-9700T turned up on UserBenchmark recently and its average bench was not too shabby.
