Chip maker has unveiled for the first time for laptops. The powerful 8th Gen Intel Core i9 processor is the highest-performance laptop processor Intel has ever built. The new 8th Gen Intel Core i9, i7 and i5 processors for laptops are based on the Coffee Lake platform and leverage the 14nm++ process technology enabling them to deliver up to 41 percent more frames per second in gameplay or edit 4K video up to 59 percent faster than the previous generation with same discrete graphics, said Intel.

At the top of the stack, the 8th Gen Intel Core i9-8950HK processor is the first mobile Intel processor with six cores and 12 threads. It comes fully unlocked and features the new Intel Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), which opportunistically and automatically increases clock frequency up to 200 MHz if the processor temperature is low enough and turbo power budget is available. This translates to a turbo frequency of up to 4.8 GHz.

As the PC gaming industry rapidly grows, Intel said it has seen increasing demand for 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.

This 8th Gen Intel Core processor family provides a powerful mobile platform for creators. In addition, the new 8th Gen Intel Core mobile processors’ single- and multi-threaded performance allows users to enjoy the mobile VR and new Windows Mixed Reality Ultra.

The 8th Gen Intel Core mobile processor family also adds a new Intel 300 Series Chipset, which adds integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi for a connection that is capable of being up to 2 times faster than standard 2×2 802.11AC 80 MHz (867 Mbps).

Also, now, Intel Optane memory is available across both 8th Gen Intel Core mobile and desktop platforms. Intel Optane memory is an adaptable system accelerator for desktop and mobile platforms, increasing the performance and responsiveness of SATA-based storage technology without compromising storage capacity.

Additionally, Intel has released a new Data Drive Acceleration feature that delivers a boost to a large secondary HDD data drive. This powerful combination provides up to 4.7 times the game loading4 and 1.7 times faster media loading.5 See more on Data Drive Acceleration. Intel said that consumers will also begin to see a new platform extension with Intel Core i5+, i7+ and i9+ badges on select systems.
