We recently came across an image of what seems to be an Amazon listing of the Intel Core i9-9900k processor with a never before seen packaging. Intel has shifted from their regular box shaped to a dodecahedron shape, which only sounds like a scary word but is simply a cuboid made from pentagons that has 12 sides.
The newest upcoming flagship of the new processor family Core i9-9900k will feature 8 cores with hyper threading enabled (8 cores/16 threads) and has a boost clock of upto a massive 5 Ghz when dealing with single core/dual core turbos! These insanely high clocks will make it very appealing to gamers as they will be able to run all their AAA titles paired with good enough GPUs without compromising any quality in graphics or frames per second.
The packaging looks very fancy right off the bat and has a ‘gamer’ vibe attached to it and on top of the completely over-the-top design on the packaging, it’s also semi-transparent and very vibrant and eye-candy colors with the blue and black Intel theme colors as well as the Core i9 written in a contrast of red and yellow which fits in perfectly too. Intel has really stepped up their marketing game with this particular product as I can definitely see a lot of people will be mentioning this packaging when unboxing the products or even on review videos on YouTube and other social platforms.
Specifications And Pricing
While the price on this amazon listing says. $582.50 we’re assuming that the actual product will be closer to the $450 price range from various MSRP leaks online and while the listing doesn’t outright say ‘Intel i9-9900k’ but does mention “8 cores / 16 threads (Upto 5.0 Ghz)” by Intel, we think it’s safe to assume that this refers to the new Core i9-9900K.
