Intel has introduced new desktop processors Core

26 September 2017

Intel's newest family of processors includes the first 6-core i5 desktop processor and first 4-core Intel Core i3 desktop processor.

Intel has announced that its new family of 8th Gen Intel Core processors will be available for purchase starting 5th October 2017.

The biggest change is the number of cores, as the flagship Core i7-8700K and Core i7-8700 now pack six cores with enabled Hyper-Threading for 12-threads, while the mid-range Core i5 series, will have to stick with the same six cores, but without Hyper-Threading support.

'Rocket Man' Kim Jong Un should have been handled years ago
Granted, he called Trump a " mentally deranged U.S. dotard " (a word to describe a fragile elderly person) and a "frightened dog". But some questioned if the North Korean leader even used this word at all, or if his actual comments were lost in translation.

Intel also says that the top of line Core i7-8700K is the best gaming desktop processor ever.Clocked at 3.7GHz, with the Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 it can go up to 4.7GHz. Retail pricing will, naturally, be higher in all case.

Intel has made two significant announcements, revealing its latest Intel Core Processor and Intel Core X-series Extreme Edition. It's followed by the Core i3-8100 which lowers the base clock to 3.6GHz and TDP to 65W (there's no boost with these chips). "Our 8 Gen Intel Core desktop processors deliver tremendous improvements across the board and - for gamers, in particular - offer an unbeatable experience". Earlier this month, we heard about leaks discussing 8-core processors and the Z390 chipset, making users apprehensive about jumping on the Z370 chipset. The budget-friendly Core i3 is "only" a quad-core processor, but that should be fine for many. The Core i3 and i5 feature a graphics frequency of 1.1GHz, while the performance-focused i7 is a bit faster at 1.2GHz.

At its base 3.7 GHz, the CPU is said to give gamers a performance boost over 7th-gen processors, yielding 25 percent more frames per second in titles such as Gears of War 4, and a 45 percent boost while "mega-tasking" such as gaming, streaming and recording PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds at the same time.

Maria continues northerly track, Lee become a hurricane
The storm has been slowing down over the past day or so, beyond this weekend is where Maria's forecast track gets tricky. However, the biggest impacts for the possibly affected areas is heavy rain and wind gusts of over 60 miles per hour .

In addition, the processors have received 32 percent more high speed video editing and 65 percent accelerated content editing.

The bad side of the story is the higher launch price tag, which has been increased by around 20 percent compared to the 7th generation CPUs, with Core i7-8700K going for United States $359 while the Core i7-7700K was launched at United States $305. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates.

Like Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake also features integrated GPUs across the board, which is handy for those need the processing power, but only have modest GPU requirements (current Ryzen CPUs all require a discrete GPU). AMD gets a larger benefit out of SMT than Intel does, but this will be a tough fight.
