Intel's new eighth-generation processor is coming soon

Published time: 2018-04-04

On the morning of April 4th, Beijing time, on Tuesday, the company officially released a new eighth-generation processor, covering four series of products. The main highlights are Core i9 and Core i7 six-core processors for notebook platforms, equipped with Iris Plus image processors, the standard version consumes 45W, and the low-power version consumes 28W.

The Core i9 processor is the strongest processor on the market that can be installed on a desktop computer. The highest version has 18 cores and can run 32 threads at the same time. At the same time, the Core i9 processor, first released in the summer of 2017, is also quite expensive. But Intel wants you to remember that the Core i9 is synonymous with high prices and high performance. Today, Intel released the i9-8950HK for mobile workstations and game books.

The newly released Core i9-8950HK series retail version starts at US$800 and the highest version is US$1,400. In addition, the processor requires the motherboard to start at $300. So if you want to assemble a Core i9 computer, you need to prepare about 1,500 to 2,000 US dollars to buy the processor and its supporting motherboard before buying memory, hard disks, and graphics cards.

However, high prices do bring high performance. The Core i9 runs fast and has more cores than the existing Core i7 processor. The new Core i9 processor for notebook platforms has six cores, which is Intel's most core processor introduced on notebook platforms. Another newly released Core i7-8750H also used in notebooks also has six cores.

Both new Core processors have good performance. The i9 and i7 are clocked at 2.9GHz and 2.2GHz, respectively, and both support "Turbo Boost" acceleration technology, which can increase the frequency to 4.8GHz and 4.2 according to the operating load. GHz. The most significant difference between the two is that the i9-8950HK supports overclocking and is limited only by the notebook's temperature design, while the new H Series i7 processors do not.

The newly released Core i9-8950 may be the strongest processor ever assembled on a laptop. Under the same power requirements, Intel claimed that the new i9 is 29% faster than the seventh generation i7. At the same time, Intel also stated that the new i9 is 59% faster than the previous i7 when rendering 4K video. The new i9 processor will be mainly installed in mobile workstations and game books, such as Dell's alien series and MSI, Acer, and other high-end games that sell for more than $4,000.

What kind of surprise does the new Core i9 bring us, is it worth spending more money on the i9 brand? We will soon know that notebooks equipped with new H-series Intel CPUs will begin shipping this month.
