With more processing cores in each category and price tags identical to those of the next generationSkylake, Intel hopes to regain full momentum on home computers
We knew it was on the way, and now it also happens: Intel Unveils first-generation Coffee Lake processorsCore And six-core processors in six different models that will be available for purchase early next month, alongside new motherboards with a Z370 chipset that will be the only ones to support them.
It is estimated that the chipmaker's offer will consist of six new models, three of them with open frequency multiplication and fast support and three without it but with a limited power envelope - two from the seriesCore i7, two of a series Core i5 and two moreCore i3, with the big gospel being official price tags that are almost identical to those with which the H-Skylake About two years ago, despite the jump in the number of cores.
God-Core i7 8700K will naturally be the carrier with six physical cores and 12 logical cores, an open-up product, a basic 3.8GHz frequency, a maximum 4.7GHz turbo frequency for a single core, an 12 megabyte of L3 cache, and a recommended 359 price tag , With theCore i5 8600K that will offer six physical cores at frequencies between 3.6GHz and 4.3GHz at a cost of $ 257 - and theCore i3 8350K quad-core 4GHz frequency and potential The fast In addition to a price tag of only $ 168, which could make it a massive new hit among gamers.
Another range of desktop models from the New Age is due in a few months, while at the same time it seems that there will be a practical right to exist for my workers Pentium And Celeron, which will contain two processing cores, with or without HyperThreading, probably at a price level of 100 dollars and less.
The reasons she mentioned Intel As those requiring an updated platform and new chipset include an enhanced power supply array to support the increased number of cores, expanded overclocking capabilities for best results, and built-in memory support DDR4 Faster at 2,666MT / s. One can argue with the practical need for this move and the choice to give up back support (even with reduced capabilities), but in the end it is probably a 'small price' to pay for the arrival of a new era where four cores are the new base, and six cores (and maybe eight cores) ) Are what exist in a large portion of mainstream users - after a decade in which we had mostly a pair of cores or four cores at reasonable and sane prices.
Reviews of the new processors are expected to arrive in the next few days, and now that's where you have to decide: Ryzen or Coffee Lake, Intel AMD - Who is the most successful and affordable processor manufacturer in the area? Looking forward to hearing your views in the comments.
