Intel also announced the new Core-X series of processors earlier today, which you can read more about, HERE. These aren’t available to order just yet, but we’re expecting more information on that front soon.
KitGuru Says: Intel launched a slew of new CPUs today and we’ll be getting a whole bunch of new prebuilt PCs, motherboards and RAM kits to go alongside them. What do you guys make of Intel’s new 9th Gen series? The prices seem to be quite a bit higher than usual, although there could be a case for those still on older architecture to make the jump. Hopefully reviews aren’t too far off!
