Intel launches first-ever hexa-core processor for laptops

Intel launches first-ever hexa-core processor for laptops

We have been hearing of this lineup for a long time now, and the new parts are finally official.

The first ever Intel chips with the Core i9 branding were released back in May with an 18-core beast. It has a 2.9GHz base clock with the ability to ramp up to 4.8GHz via Turbo Boost, along with 12MB of L3 cache. Intel says that it can achieve a turbo frequency of up to 4.8GHz. What does "low enough" mean? The thermal velocity boost was not an automatic thing and Intel had targeted that of the temperature of the system reach 50-degree centigrade or below then the boost will kick in.

Other Intel Coffee Lake mobile CPUs announced are for U-series with Intel Core i7-8559U leading the U-series. While its seventh-generation processors were not much improvement over their predecessor, the latest Intel chips, it appears, are here to change the game.

Intel claims that the premium laptop category has grown 40 percent year-on-year, and so it intends to cater to a wide range of purpose-built laptops.

At the top of the stack, the 8 Gen Intel Core i9-8950HK processor is optimized to push the limits of performance. Fortunately it is the not the only path to 6-core/12-thread computing on a consumer laptop.

The H-series processors mentioned above actually have the "G" suffix, and today, Intel announced the actual "H" chips. In 2016, Intel-Haifa developed the "Kaby Lake" processor which was at the time considered the strongest and fastest ever made for desktop computers. Many of those still offer six cores though, so they're still an upgrade from the last generation.

These allow the processors to operate in low power in the background while listening for voice commands.

Springer, World Series champ Astros top Texas 4-1 in opener
Houston answered with a run in the fifth, a Max Stassi double that drove home Evan Gattis, who had doubled to lead off the inning. Luis Severino (1-0) pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings for the Yankees, who won their opener for the first time since 2011.

All three new types of product are aimed to give Intel what it needs to deliver top-tier performance for every laptop price point, goal and form factor.

Next to them are the Radeon RX Vega M processors, created in a collaborative effort with AMD. This simply means a mobile or desktop system includes the combination of an Intel Core processor and Optane memory. The company is announcing new mobile and desktop CPUs as well as its new Intel 300 Series chipsets.

Also exciting is the fact that Intel is now shipping Intel Optane memory on 8th-gen Intel Core mobile and desktop platforms, which should further improve the speed of laptops and notebooks.

Intel struggled to get the joint 3D XPoint tech off the ground after working with Micron to put it together.

With its Data Drive Acceleration feature, users can boost performance to a large secondary HDD drive.

There are four new SKUs, all of which come with the same 28W TDP, support for dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory, Intel Iris Plus GPU with 128MB of eDRAM and Intel Optane Memory support. You'll need Intel's RST driver version 16.0.2 or later to take advantage of this feature.

New laptops are rolling out with these new processors starting April 3rd.
