  • Intel also shows 28W low-power U-series 8th gen CPUs

Intel likewise reported Core i5 and Core i7 processors for PCs alongside the Core i9.

Intel is poised to solidify its dominance of the mobile computing world with its 2018 release of new Coffee Lake H-series and U-series Intel Core processors, Core i9 CPUs for laptops and Intel Optane taking over mobile memory.

Acer Aspire Nitro 15 - $749 (about £530, AU$980) Sporting a faux carbon fiber lid, the Acer Nitro V 15 will be one of the more affordable Intel 8th gen H-series laptops available starting this month.

Intel says that new chips are created to improve both gaming and content creation experience for the users. If neither motherboard manufacturers nor Microsoft are willing to deliver the patches, then there's not much point for Intel to develop them. Intel is rolling out new Core i9+, Core i7+ and Core i5+ badges for OEMs to promote desktops and laptops that use a Core CPU as well as Optane Memory.

Along with announcing the arrival of the Core i9 to laptops, Intel also announced the addition of eighth-generation Intel chips to its business-focused vPro platform. This translates to a turbo frequency of up to 4.8 GHz. The new generation processors will be providing high level and ultimate gaming experience for customers.

For the rest of us, the benefits of Intel's new 14nm Coffee Lake silicon may also be felt in the company's Xeon and Core i7 processors, which also offer six cores and 12 threads for all your multitasking (and editing and rendering) needs.

In any case, Intel continues, stating that "as the PC gaming industry rapidly grows", the company "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".

Up until now, Intel has been revealing its eighth-generation Core processors at a slow but steady pace.

To compliment the speed of the chip, Intel also used its new 300 Series Chipset, which integrates Gigabit Wi-Fi.

When Intel launched Coffee Lake last summer, it led with a relatively anemic lineup of desktop and mobile parts.

While base clock speed of 2.9 gigahertz and single-core Turbo Boosts speeds up to 4.8 gigahertz, the Core i9 is way more processor than most consumers will ever need.

Intel did not discuss pricing, but we don't expect the Core i9-8950HK to be an cheap option by any means. For more information about benchmarks and performance test results, go to

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. Intel said this storage hardware can open large media files 1.7 times faster than before.
