The chip giant said that its new 8th Gen Intel Core i9, i7 and i5 processors for laptops are based on the Coffee Lake platform.

All three new types of product are aimed to give Intel what it needs to deliver top-tier performance for every laptop price point, objective and form factor. On the laptop side, you can expect four cores and eight threads even in Intel's low-power U-series Core i5 chips.

Today is a big day for Intel - the company is announcing a massive update to its processor families with new 8 generation Coffee Lake-based Core SKUs for both mobile and desktop platforms.

The best of the best Core i9 model is going to be the i9-8950HK, which gets speeds of up to 4.8GHz with the help of turbo boost (that's Intel's Thermal Velocity Boost tech at play). The Core i5-8269U works at 2.6GHz base and 4.2GHz Turbo clocks while the Core i5-8259U works at 2.3GHz and 3.8GHz Turbo clocks.

Intel also launched a new extension which combines Intel's eighth generation processors with its system accelerator Optane memory, capable of accelerating performance to a speed of up to 4.8GHz, while adjusting cooling systems to performance needs. Previously codenamed as Coffee Lake-H, these new processors are designed for high demanding tasks such as gaming, game-streaming, professional-level content creation, mixed reality, and virtual reality.

Intel announced a series of new Coffee Lake desktop CPUs, too. Optane is a new technology that Intel unveiled at CES, which is created to boost HHD data speeds.

Lest you think Core i9 laptops will all be giant tanks, feast your eyes on this MSI GS65.


Intel introduced a number of small updates to its U-series and desktop CPUs alongside the new H-range.

Eighth-gen vPro systems with Optane memory can run up to 78% faster than previous generations.

Chip maker Intel has unveiled for the first time Intel Core i9 processor for laptops.

MSI has yet to announce the price and availability of these new gaming laptops, but we should probably see them when we make our visit to COMPUTEX this year.

So, there you have it. Though the chipmaker is continuing its Core i7/Core i5/Core i3 designations, consumers are getting more cores now.

According to an Intel spokesman, it's "for people who want the capacity but don't want to pay loads". In early 2017, the company's new seventh-gen laptop and desktop Kaby Lake processors were barely faster than the year before.
