New Intel Core Chips Offer Speed Boost For Desktop PCs

Intel targets high-end gamers with 8th-generation desktop chips coming Oct. 5

Intel Announces 8th Generation Core i7, i5, And i3 Processors For Desktops

On August 21, they launched the 8th Gen Core processors for laptops based on Kaby Lake Refresh, a slight improvement over the 7th Gen Kaby Lake Chips (14nm).

Intel has launched its new family of 8th Gen (Coffee Lake) Core desktop processors.

The top of the line, Intel Core i7-8700K is capable of 4.7 GHz maximum single-core turbo frequency. "Our 8th Gen Intel Core desktop processors deliver tremendous improvements across the board and - for gamers, in particular- offer an unbeatable experience", said Anand Srivatsa, general manager of the Desktop Platform Group at Intel.

Dwyane Wade Signing With the Cavaliers Would Be a Massive Mistake
The Thunder, who acquired Carmelo Anthony in a blockbuster trade over the weekend, would only be able to offer the minimum salary. James posted on Instagram after working out with Wade: "To say we had a great week of work would be an understatement".

The American-based chip making pioneer Intel has finally launched its 8th generation core processors covering from Core i3 to Core i7 and coming in six different variants. Retail pricing will, naturally, be higher in all case.

Intel has resisted dropping the price on its CPUs, but it's fighting back in another way-by adding more cores to existing parts.

The 4GHz Core i3-8350K and 3.6GHz Core i3-8100 cost $168 and $117, respectively, again per thousand units. INTC stock has been on a roller coaster this year, but the new 8th-gen Intel Core CPUs could be the ticket to growth.

Full statement from Sen. John McCain on voting no on Graham-Cassidy

More on Intel's Core i9 Extreme processors here, which are sure to be X-tremely X-pensive as was the case with Intel's range of "extreme" class processors from years past. The budget-friendly Core i3 is "only" a quad-core processor, but that should be fine for many. There have been rumors that the flagship Core i7-8700K easily overclocks to 4.8GHz, which is an impressive feat. The i7 delivers up to 195 frames per second (FPS) on Gears of War 4, and 25 percent more FPS than its 7th Gen processors. Moving down a little we see Core i5 8600K and Core i5 8400, now also with 6 cores but no hyperthreading as you'd normally expect with Core i5s. The processors also bring in the new Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates.

Intel is promising big gains for end users in multimedia content creation with Coffee Lake, promising up to 65 percent gains in video editing speeds when compared against Skylake.

Intel's Coffee Lake CPU lineup will be available from 5 October.

Rhetorical excesses of Trump and Kim are hard to tell apart
Ri reportedly added that "We have no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong Un ". Tensions have risen with North Korea resisting intense global pressure to halt its nuclear and missile programs.

Obviously it was in response to AMD's competitive threat, alongside the endless and unstoppable rise of ARM processors that Intel had to threaten Microsoft and Qualcomm not to further popularise with a version of Windows 10 running on it.
