Intel announces 28-Core CPU and 5GHz Core i7-8086K at Computex

Intel announces 28-Core CPU and 5GHz Core i7-8086K at Computex

"It celebrates Intel's legacy of industry-leading performance by featuring our first 6-core, 12-thread processor with integrated graphics in an 1151-pin package supporting a 64-bit instruction set", Intel explains (PDF).

You have to travel back in time 40 years to June 1978 to witness the birth of x86 computing, in terms of market penetration-that is when Intel introduced its first 16-chip processor, the 8086, and in the process formed the foundation for modern computing.

That's a whole ten extra cores compared with Intel's current top single-socket CPU, the Core i9 7980XE, and we saw the new megacore monster chewing through Cinebench's CPU rendering package nearly faster than I could grab a quick fuzzy picture of it.

Since it's a K-series processor, the Intel Core i7-8086K comes with its multiplier unlocked which means that the processor is ready for overclocking out of the box.

The contest is open to residents of the US, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK, France, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and China (excluding Hong Kong). According to Intel, the new display technology will be able to extend battery life by 4 to 8 hours compared to traditional displays, and it's being developed in partnership with display manufacturers Sharp and Innolux. We also grabbed pics of the internals of Intel's test system. Winners will be informed by email no later than two weeks after the closure of the sweepstakes and then delivery of the processor will happen six to eight weeks after that. As a way to express its thanks to the community, Intel will be giving away exactly 8,086 units of the processor for free. Pricing information is not yet available, but the sweepstakes lists the average retail value of the processor at $425.

The so-called consumer CPU, which will probably cost an arm and a leg, especially since the 18-core Core i9-7980XE goes for around U.S. $2000, looks a lot like the 28-core Xeon Platinum chip, although that one comes with a much lower base and boost frequency.

The chipmaker has not yet revealed the price or launch date of the new processor.
