Intel Core i9 Processor Comes to Mobile

Intel Core i9 Processor Comes to Mobile

Thin-and-light laptops with 8th Gen processors and vPro will be available first, followed by mainstream laptops, desktops, and workstations. These Coffee Lake chips are an upgrade over the Kaby Lake Refresh CPU's Intel announced last August, adding Intel Iris Plus graphics.

The Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost feature is supported on Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK and Intel® Xeon® Processor E-2186M and is created to increase performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads. This leverages the 14nm++ process technology enabling them to deliver up to 41% more frames per second in gameplay. In October, it announced new desktop chips that are hexa-core instead of quad-core, and then at CES in January, Intel announced new quad-core H-series processors with dedicated GPUs from AMD built into them. The extremely high performance provided by the Core i9 processor comes as an answer to the ever growing needs of gamers, Karin Eibschitz Segal, the director of Intel's Israeli development center said in a statement. With TurboBoost 2.0, Intel says single-core clock speeds can climb up to 4.8GHz, which is nothing to stick your nose up at. Its Haifa-based team led the development of the new generation of processors.

Additionally, Intel is also launching new 8th generation chips targeted at mainstream laptops and desktops today. There's also support for Intel Optane memory to ensure accessing storage doesn't form a performance bottleneck regardless of whether you pair it with an SSD or hard drive. We've rounded the new cores for desktop and mobile up in the slideshow below; you can click on each slide to magnify it. It has six cores and 12 threads and can automatically overclock itself based on temperature of the processor. The one and only Core i9 processor is the i9-8950HK, clocked at 2.9GHz and maxing out at 4.8GHz across its six cores and 12 threads.

Compared to the number crunching prowess of the new i9 mobile chip, these ones are fairly standard, with just one (Core i7-8700T) that has support for hyperthreading.

The company also launched Intel 300 Series Chipset, which adds integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi for fast connection.

Along with these attractive new Coffee Lake chips, Intel added a support for Optane memory to both the eighth-generation mobile and desktop chips.

Intel hinted in a previous microcode update guidance that some older chip architectures going back about a decade, such as Penryn, Yorksfield, and Wolfdale, would receive updates to address the Spectre vulnerability.

Naturally, not everyone will be able to afford a Core i9 processor. "This powerful combination provides up to 4.7 times the game loading and 1.7 times faster media loading", with more on Data Drive Acceleration here.
