  • Intel Unveils 8th Gen Core Desktop Processors Boasting Up To 32 Percent More Performance

Intel's new coffee lake processors will use Intel's z370 chipset which offers the best in class single threaded performance and a much better multi-threaded performance.

Intel said its new chips will officially launch on October 5, with prices ranging from $117 for its low-end Core i3 processors to $359 for its higher-performing Core i7 chips.

Core i7-8700K: 6C/12T @ 3.7GHz base/4.7GHz boost, 95W TDP.

In comparison to its Kaby Lake predecessor, the i7-7700K (quad-core), Intel claims that it can achieve up to 25% more frames per second in Gears of War 4.

Xbox One X selling out around the world
The interested customers can pre-book Xbox One S from Amazon India, Flipkart and select Microsoft authorised retailers. The gaming console is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One , featuring a sleek, slimline design.


Intel has announced a new lineup of 8th Generation Core CPUs for desktops, all of which have more cores than ever before.

In what Intel and the retailing industry presumably hopes is a great sign just in time for the retail sales end-of-year Christmas gift-giving and shopping bonanza, Intel says "retailers now can offer the entire Intel Core X-series processor family".

Starting at the entry-level point, we have the Core i3-8100, which has a base clock of 3.6GHz, 6MB of Intel Smart Cache and dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory support. The former has a base frequency of 2.8GHz and a Turbo Boost 2.0 frequency of 4GHz.

No doubt AMD would add the caveat "the most extreme desktop processor ever introduced by Intel", but I can't put words in their mouth, they can do that themselves.

Mnuchin said the president was prepared to respond if that scenario were to ever play out. On Sunday, Mnuchin said he agreed with the president.


As for the new Core i7 chips, they also pack six cores and the new Turbo Boosting tech, along with something called HyperThreading technology, which helps to ensure that processor resources are used more efficiently.

In addition, we're told that "with Intel Core X-series Extreme Edition processors, content creators can expect up to 80% better performance for VR content creation and up to 60% faster 4K video editing over the previous generation's Extreme Edition". Coffee Lake is described as "14nm++" because it is a further optimisation on the 14nm manufacturing process which has extended its life beyond the original two year "tick-tock" cadence, and now well beyond the three-year "process-architecture-optimisation" cycle that was supposed to take effect. The architecture of the CPU and GPU did not change compared to Kaby Lake. The new chipsets are supported with Intel "Z370" chipset-based motherboards.

Desktop 8th Gen Core CPUs have the same number of pins as 6th and 7th Gen models but will need new motherboards and a new platform controller. Both chips include six physical cores capable of executing a total of six threads, and support DDR4-2666 memory.
