KXIP vs KKR Live Score

It's a dual-anniversary moment for Intel as it celebrates its 50th year of being in business, and 40 years of its x86 architecture that is still going strong today.

Unfortunately, Intel was not keen to talk about the name or any other details of the CPU but it was clear during the announcement that it won't be running on any now available motherboard and will probably use some larger socket similar to the LGA 3647 socket, also known as Socket P and used for Intel's Xeon Skylake-EX and Skylake-SP CPUs with 6-channel memory controller and more.

AMD is now offering CPUs with 16 cores and 32 threads on its Threadripper chips in comparison to the 18-core chip that Intel is offering on its Core i9 Extreme. Additionally, Intel said the new X-series and next-generation S-series desktop processors are coming to desktops later in 2018. It plans to sell the CPU before the end of the year.

The Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition processor represents the company's first 6-core, 12-thread processor with integrated graphics in an 1151-pin package supporting a 64-bit instruction set. If and when it does come to Malaysia, one thing is for sure: it's not going to be cheap. The part has a TDP (thermal design power) of 95 watts. Full specifications are now available on the Ark database.

The "K" suffix indicates that it should be overclockable, which means it will be shipped without a stock cooler, and Intel hasn't released price details yet. If you want to enter to win one, you can do so here. The company will be giving away 8,086 Core i7-8086K CPUs - but only if you live in the US, Canada (but not Quebec), France, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and China (but not Hong Kong) - and the UK. 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.
