Intel announces first ever Core i9 processor for laptops

Intel Announces First Core i9 Laptop CPU, New Mainstream Desktop Chipsets, 8th Gen vPro Platform, and More

In February, CEO of Intel's operations in Israel Yaniv Garty announced that Intel is planning to expand chip manufacturing in Israel, with a $5 billion investment in its existing plant in Kiryat Gat, a town in the south of Israel. Intel is aiming these processors at high-end laptops designed for gaming and content creation as well as VR and mixed reality applications. It's called the Core i9-8950K and includes six cores (12 threads) and is manufactured using Intel's 14nm++ process technology.

Intel claims 29 percent overall performance boost compared to the seventh-generation Core i7 desktop processor, and 88 percent better performance for those looking to upgrade from a "three-year old" system. "This translates to a turbo frequency of up to 4.8GHz", Intel says.

The processors do not support LPDDR4 memory, sticking with the same LPDDR3 as found in the 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro limiting RAM to 16GB.

As the PC gaming industry rapidly grows, Intel has seen increasing demand for incredibly fast laptops that can provide desktop-like performance for an immersive and responsive experience, including the ability to stream and record without compromising gameplay while still enabling portability.

Harry and Davy dated off-and-on from 2004 until 2011, first linking up with Harry spent time in Cape Town, South Africa. Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, will officiate when the couple takes their marriage vows.

Intel's partners have already started announcing refreshed laptops with these new processors inside.

Starting with the fun stuff, Intel Core i9 brings the firm's most powerful CPU into the mobile space. The Core i7-8700T is hexa-core with 12 threads, while the Core i3-8100T, i3-8300T, i5-8400T, i5-8500T, and i5-8600T are once again quad-core and hexa-core, but not hyperthreaded. It uses the new "thermal velocity boost" technology to run the new Core i9-8950HK with a base clock rate of 2.9GHz to 4.8GHz.

The new mobile Intel Core processors of the eighth generation also received new chipsets series with integrated 300 Intel Gigabit Wi-Fi.

Naturally, not everyone will be able to afford a Core i9 processor.

The GS65 Stealth is also a rather stylish gaming laptop too, as MSI has introduced a new golden accent and trim on the laptop's chassis, while gamers can also customize the Per key RGB keyboard, and take advantage of an exclusive gaming mode in the new Dragon Center Version 2.0.

When will we see Core i9 laptops in stores?

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

Many of these new processors, including the Core i9, will come equipped with Intel Optane memory as well, speeding up load times from SATA-connected data drives. According to Intel, Data Drive Acceleration will provide up to 4.7X faster game loading and up to 1.7X faster media loading.

Rainy and mild on Saturday; winter-like for Easter Sunday
