This year marks Intel's 50th anniversary, and in celebration, the company showed up to Computex 2018 with a lot of announcements to make.

The chip will ship on 8 June, with Intel offering a chance for its fans to win one of the limited edition Core i7s. Although Intel did not reveal any additional details, it demonstrated a 28-core CPU running at 5.0Ghz on all cores.

Intel didn't announce how much the chip would cost, though the competition website lists its average retail price as $425. After years of pretty stagnant core counts, Intel and AMD have gone insane one-upping each other with new high-end chips with more and more cores, and we today Intel teased the next processor in that progression. But the with the Core i7-8086K, Intel has made a decision to roll its sleeves up and push its chip hard. And that's about all we know about the chip for now, other than the obvious: it's fast. 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.

In the first half when we had chances, we can't lose our confidence because a team changed their formation'. Just before half-time, captain Harry Kane made it 2-0 to round off a comfortable half for the home side.


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

It is a flat out beastly slice of silicon, even compared to Intel's burly Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition processor, which is a high-end desktop (HEDT) Skylake-E part with 18 cores and 36 threads clocked at 2.6GHz to 4.2GHz.

The Core i7-8086K has been unveiled nearly exactly 40 years after the launch of Intel's original 8086 processor, although the newer version will be overclockable and sports much more impressive specifications.
