Intel is expected to unveil its first ever 8C/16T processor this month, with the Core i9-9900K looking like it'll be the best CPU for gaming ever made. But you can't make a great CPU without some awesome packaging, right?!

A new listing on Amazon shows off some never-before-seen packaging for an Intel Core i9 processor with a very small '9th gen' at the top, and the listing itself showing 8C/16T at up to 5GHz. We can also see it has Hyper-Threading technology enabled (hence the 16-threaded part), 16MB of cache and of course it has the ability to be overclocked since it's a K-series processor.

The box, if real, looks ridiculously good and could give AMD a run for their money with the awesome packaging for the second-gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs. The listing has the purported Core i9-9900K costing $580, which is a stark difference to the rumored price of $480 from my post on the 9900K yesterday.
