Intel Unveils First Ever Core i9 Processor For Laptops

The increase in overall speed is roughly 29% according to Intel as compared to previous generation Intel processors.


Intel claims that notebooks will generally see increased performance from using Optane.

Of course the Core i9 has been around for a while now. Indeed, Intel is describing its Core i9 processor as the highest-performance laptop processor it has ever built. You’ll want to be on the look out for these if shopping a notebook.

What the Arm instruction set lacks in SIMD performance, Apple can make up for by using its Metal 2 API and Core ML machine learning framework to accelerate tasks with GPUs, Krewell said. They are additionally in light of the organization’s most recent 14nm++ engineering (known as Coffee Lake) rather than the past eighth-generation Kaby Lake R chips.

Intel unveiled today new 8th Gen “Coffee Lake” processors for mobile PCs, including the first ever Core i9 processor for laptops. Chips such as Radeon RX Vega M processors are suitable for the thinner and lightweight laptops preferred by the companies that want to mainlain less space. All of these parts are pretty similar to their standard power counterparts in terms of core count and cache size but work at lower clocks and fit in the 35W TDP range. Intel first revealed its 18 core Core i9 Extreme chip, aimed at desktop PCs, nearly a year ago now. It has uncovered evidence of an internal Apple initiative dubbed “Kalamata”, which would see a multistage transition from Intel’s x86-based chips now used in Apple’s desktop and notebook lineups to Apple’s custom ARM-based chips. Core i9 chips are by far the most powerful, led by the eighth-en Intel Core i9-8950HK. Other Mac laptops will receive Apple-developed chips this year, the report claims. According to TechRadar, the new U-series also integrates updated Iris Plus graphics.

The Core i9-8950HK is joined by four new Core i7 and Core i5 processors. Though the chipmaker is continuing its Core i7/Core i5/Core i3 designations, consumers are getting more cores now. The new 8 gen Core i9 chips are created to offer the best performance to your laptop.

Many people prefer thin laptops over thin ones nowadays.

Intel tells us that its Optane memory is “available across both 8th Gen Intel Core mobile and desktop platforms”.


The company is positioning Optane as an accelerator for data drives, the high-capacity hard drives where PC gamers and enthusiasts store games and media files.

Intel will not be patching older chips for Spectre
