Intel unveils 40th Anniversary Core i7-8086K processor

Intel unveils 40th Anniversary Core i7-8086K processor Intel unveils 40th Anniversary Core i7-8086K processor

The i7-8086K has a 5.0GHz boost clock with a base clock of 4.0GHz.

The i7-8086K is a limited edition CPU produced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Intel's original 8086.

Intel's benchmark run compares favorably with AMD's Threadripper processors, as well. Participants can register for a chance to win in two days' time, but you'll only have 24 hours to enter.

An announcement by Intel is likely to raise hopes about what Apple might achieve by switching to its own power management chips in future devices ... The processors will ship on June 6.

The chipmaker revealed naff all in the way of details for the processor; there was no word on clockspeeds, architecture or fabrication process - it just teased the core count. In general terms the 7980XE will hit 4GHz as standard, and at that stock speed it delivers 3,385 in Cinebench, making the 28-core CPU some 91% quicker. 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. The chip manufacturer also announced plans to release a 28-core, 5GHz chip later in the year.

News of both chips overshadowed Intel's announcement on its upcoming Amber Lake Y-series and Whiskey Lake U-series CPUs. They will arrive in more than 70 new laptops and 2-in-1s this fall, and offer double-digit performance improvements over the current generation of chips.

Intel's new beast is a huge 28C/56T processor that will compete with Threadripper 2 later this year from AMD, and ASUS was showing it off smashing through some wonderful Cinebench results.
