Intel 9th generation Core i9 Coffee Lake processors have 8 physical cores plus Hyper Threading technology, allowing them to work on up to 16 threads simultaneously. Despite the Core i9 branding, these CPUs are compatible with mainstream Z390 & select Z370 motherboards, and therefore don't require one of the much more expensive enthusiast-grade motherboards such as X299 models.
Important - Please Note: A number of Intel Z370 motherboards will support these processors out-of-the-box, or with a BIOS update. Please check the list of supported CPUs for your motherboard before purchasing one of these processors to ensure it is compatible.
