Intel announces 8th Gen Core Desktop Processors

Intel announces the desktop processors of the 8th Gen Intel Core processor family. Available for purchase on Oct. 5 2017 they include Intel’s best desktop gaming processor ever

This CPU boasts up to a 4.7-GHz single-core frequency, which is the fastest ever on an Intel chip. Moving down a little we see Core i5 8600K and Core i5 8400, now also with 6 cores but no hyperthreading as you'd normally expect with Core i5s. It has a TDP of 95W. Improvements in game performance are promised to be up to 25% versus Kaby Lake, with Intel specifically mentioning Gears of War 4 as a prime beneficiary. Also, the game + stream+ record has become two times faster as compared to a 3-year old machine. With Turbo Boost 2.0 enabled, it's single-core clock can be cranked up to 4.7Ghz. Intel is keen to stress how good its processors are at gaming, attacking one of the criticisms levelled at AMD's Ryzen processors. However, the updated core counts come with a penalty: base clocks are marginally lower compared to Kaby Lake CPUs. This will be pitched at $182 (£135, AU$230). The U-series processors, launched in August, were targeted for mobile devices, while its processors targeted for commercial systems and a broad range of consumer devices will be launched in the first half of 2018.

Internally, the new core design is all but identical to the seventh-generation Kaby Lake architecture, and it uses the same 14nm manufacturing process. These will be priced at $168 (£125, AU$210) and $117 (£85, AU$145) respectively.

Special features include Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 for extra bursts of performance, as well as Intel's Hyper-Threading technology which allows your CPU to multitask better. Intel said this is important as the new six-core chips need this to achieve their maximum performance.

Messi being man-marked helps Barcelona as a team - Valverde
Former Barca defender Marc Muniesa will miss out through injury. "We were talking because I was stuck to him the whole match". Valverde hinted that Luis Suarez , who was on the bench against Eibar earlier this week, will start on Saturday.

The new, more powerful chips are supported by the introduction of a new series of Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards, which help by providing more efficient power delivery. Each processor is supported with new Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards.

"This final piece of the puzzle rounds out the availability of the Intel Core X-series processor family, providing content creators and enthusiasts with the much-anticipated Extreme Edition, the most extreme desktop processor ever introduced", Intel said.

Arriving on the market next week, the new 8th-generation Intel Core desktop processors are aimed at gamers and digital content creators who want more speed and power for the applications they run. The flagship 8700K comes in at $359 over last year's 7700K that cost $305.
