Intel unveils 40th Anniversary Core i7-8086K processor

"It celebrates Intel's legacy of industry-leading performance by featuring our first 6-core, 12-thread processor with integrated graphics in an 1151-pin package supporting a 64-bit instruction set", Intel explains (PDF).

We saw the unreleased chip running with all 28 cores hitting 5GHz while, even with the 7980XE hitting the same frequency when overclocked, the previous megacore chip could only manage 5,029 in the same benchmark. The mystery 28-core/56-thread chip is more than twice as fast, and almost five times faster than a Core i7-8700K, which we recorded a score of 1,522 in the same benchmark. To be clear, this is a single-socket chip with 28 cores and 56 threads of computing muscle, clocked at 5GHz.

Intel only teased the chip-no details on the name, architecture or process-but we can expect it to be considerably more expensive than the $1999 Core i9-7980XE.

Intel also announced two new 8th generation Intel Core mobile chips, the Whiskey Lake U-series and Amber Lake Y-series.
