Computex 2018: Intel introduces 8086K 40th Anniversary Edition with 5GHz boost speed

  • Intel is 50 years old

With Qualcomm announcing the Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform earlier today and Intel producing new 8th-gen chips later this year, the PC market should continue to be pretty exciting. The Intel 8086 microprocessor "formed the foundation for modern computing", according to an Intel news fact sheet. The company says the six-core/12-thread CPU would be its first ever to reach a 5.0GHz turbo frequency without overclocking. It's expected that the Core i7-8086K will have the same 95W TDP rating as that chip.

Intel has made plenty of revelations over at Computex 2018 - including several seriously beefy new processors - but not everything is about performance, and on the power efficiency front, the company also made a big statement, promising laptops with a battery life of up to 28 hours. Participants will have a 24-hour window in which to enter the sweepstakes, and this is said to start June 7th 2018 at 5PM PST.

The anniversary chip will be available to purchase starting June 8, the same day that the first 8086 processor debuted 40 years ago.

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom says he's not getting overconfident on Election Day
Democrats also want Montana's House seat, held by Greg Gianforte, a Republican known for assaulting a reporter previous year . If no candidate achieves that, 1,000 delegates will choose a the party's nominee at the state convention on June 16th.

But the announcement that's getting most of the attention is Intel's high-end desktop processor (HEDT) that comes with an incredible 28 cores and 56 threads. During the Intel keynote, a GIGABYTE motherboard was used to run it at 5GHz.

As an indication of how much the 28-core Core i9 will cost: The company's current top-of-the-line 18-core Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition is priced at £1,649.99, and it's therefore unlikely to cost less than that. However, upon closer inspection of the product details listed in the benchmark, we could see that the CPU had a base clockspeed of 2.7GHz. The chip maker is now working with several OEMs including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft to release the first 5G-connected laptops and 2 in 1s next year. We would naturally expect Intel to announce new processors at a gathering like Computex, and that's exactly what it did.
