Intel’s i9-9900K processor has been rumoured for quite some time, offering an 8-core answer to AMD’s Ryzen series of LGA1151, matching their core count while doubling down on Intel’s enhanced per-core performance and clock speed advantages in general computing tasks.  

Today, thanks to @momomo_us on Twitter, we have found an Amazon listing which offers buyers Intel’s upcoming flagship with a price tag of $582.50 and a new pentagonal packaging design. 

If this packaging is legitimate, it appears as if Intel plans to ship with i9 series processors with premium Threadripper-like packaging, or that the company plans to release at least some of their high-end i9 processors with a stock cooling solution or some other accessories. 

The box itself appears to be translucent, delivering a very AMD Threadripper vibe, with leaves us leaning on the “premium packaging to compete with AMD” side of the equation, rather than the “Intel could ship more than just a CPU in this box” side of the equation.

Like most pre-launch hardware listings, it is likely that the $582.50 price tag shown in the Amazon listing is not legitimate. That being said, we doubt that Intel plans to let an i9-series processor sell for a bargain price tag. I guess we will have to wait for Intel to officially reveal their i9 series processors before we can make any proper judgements.
