Intel Announces First Core i9 Laptop CPU, New Mainstream Desktop Chipsets, 8th Gen vPro Platform, and More

These are split into three standard-power (65W) and six low power (35W) processors, none of which are overclockable, though they all support Optane. This is the highest-performance laptop processor Intel has ever built to deliver the best gaming and content creation experience on the go.

Acer Aspire Nitro 15 - $749 (about £530, AU$980) Sporting a faux carbon fiber lid, the Acer Nitro V 15 will be one of the more affordable Intel 8th gen H-series laptops available starting this month.

The Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost feature is supported on Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK and Intel® Xeon® Processor E-2186M and is created to increase performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads.

According to the Fredrik Hamberger who is the general manager of Intel's premium and gaming notebooks said that "it is the fastest gaming processor we have ever launched and it is closest to the desktop performance you can get in a notebook". In addition, the new 8th Gen Intel Core mobile processors' single- and multi-threaded performance allows users to enjoy the mobile VR and new Windows Mixed Reality Ultra. An example of the new branding would be Intel Core i5+ or an Intel Core i7+. Headquarters chips will still exist, but the new hexa-core processors will have the suffix "H", including the Core i7-8750H and i7-8850H.

Intel in a press note today announced that it is working on bringing its highest performance 8th generation Core i9 processors in the laptops. The company is announcing new mobile and desktop CPUs as well as its new Intel 300 Series chipsets.

Let us start with the Intel Coffee Lake H-series mobile CPUs.

In real-life terms, Intel's 8th-generation processor brings significantly faster gaming and 4K video editing; for the i9-8950HK specifically, Intel claims an overall 29% performance increase over the previous generation of Intel processors.

All of these mobile and desktop Intel Cofee-Lake CPUs feature support for Intel Optane memory solutions and a new Optane-fueled Data Drive Acceleration. They are additionally in light of the organization's most recent 14nm++ engineering (known as Coffee Lake) rather than the past eighth-generation Kaby Lake R chips.

At the very top of the pack, you get the Intel Core i9-8950HK which is a 6-core-12-thread CPU with 2.9GHz base speed and boost speed of 4.8GHz.

8 Generation Intel® Core™ vs. 7 Generation Intel® Core™. Intel also operates R&D centers in Haifa, Jerusalem, Petach Tikva and Yakum.

Intel did not discuss pricing, but we don't expect the Core i9-8950HK to be an low-priced option by any means.
