Intel Core i9-9900KFC will most likely be the next top-of-the-line processor for the US consumer / gamer band. The name appeared in the latest beta release of AIDA64 Extreme, a diagnostic and benchmarking tool that has unveiled several new hardware products in the past. At the time of writing of the article, the reference to the Core i9-9900KFC has been removed; However, the Anandtech colleagues managed to capture a screenshot that we propose to follow:
At the moment it is not clear what novelty can introduce Intel Core i9-9900KFC compared to the current Core i9-9900K and Core i9-9900KF, the latter solution announced at CES 2019 and without the integrated graphic component (factory disabled). Given the code of the new model, most likely we are faced with the umta octa-core with Hyper-Threading support (16 threads) and iGPU disabled, equipped with 16MB of L3 cache and clock multiplier unlocked for overclocking.
Intel Core i9-9900KFC may offer more boosted Turbo-Boost frequencies than the current 9900K / 9900KF (above 5 GHz), but you can not exclude some further news. The presence of the letter C in the suffix of this model could also indicate the presence of an eDRAM, solution that Intel used in the past on the Broadwell-C series (see Intel presents Core i7-5775C).
The use of an eDRAM cache proved to be effective in Broadwell-E models with integrated graphics; Core-i9-9900KFC should instead have the GPU disabled, which causes us to exclude this option for the time being. We look forward to further developments and any declarations or denials by the manufacturer
