Intel brings a six-core i9 CPU to laptops

Intel also expanded its eighth generation of desktop Core processors, after first debuting the stable of chips past year (including its monster 18-core i9 desktop chip).

Intel unveiled today new 8th Gen "Coffee Lake" processors for mobile PCs, including the first ever 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.

In addition to the Core i9 for laptops, Intel also took the wraps off of new Core i5 and i7 chips based on its Coffee Lake platform and leveraging the company's 14nm++ process. Leading the new H-series Intel Coffee Lake CPUs is the Intel Core i9-8950HK with a base clock speed of 2.9GHz and the boost clock is 4.6GHz. The chip will ship unlocked and features a new Thermal Velocity Boost allowing for automatic clock frequency increases of up to 200MHz.

Thanks to the new CPUs, Intel Optane memory is now available across all Intel i9 powered platforms.

"It really is the closest to desktop performance you can get in a notebook", said Fredrik Hamberger, general manager of Intel's premium and gaming notebooks.

Clearly, the idea with this processor was to bring desktop, hexa-core power to gaming laptops and prosumer devices.

In real-life terms, Intel's 8th-generation processor brings significantly faster gaming and 4K video editing; for the i9-8950HK specifically, Intel claims an overall 29% performance increase over the previous generation of Intel processors.

The new mobile Intel Core processors of the eighth generation also received new chipsets series with integrated 300 Intel Gigabit Wi-Fi.

Up until now, Intel has been revealing its eighth-generation Core processors at a slow but steady pace.

Optane Memory has also received an update, with new support for data drive acceleration. The new memory results in 1.3 times better data writing performance along with retrieval related tasks and 4.7 times faster level loading in games, the chip maker claims. Finding a home for it with the storage-accelerating PCIe Optane drive was a smart move, but it's been largely irrelevant for most of us.

HP Omen 15 The HP Omen 15 is not only of the brands first laptops to feature a hexa-core Intel Core processor, but also a Nvidia GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU. The results are not necessarily representative of other benchmarks and other benchmark results may show greater or lesser impact from mitigations.

We have already seen quite a lot 8th Generation CPUs from Intel, including many for the laptop.

Intel technologies' features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software or service activation. These Coffee Lake chips are an upgrade over the Kaby Lake Refresh CPU's Intel announced last August, adding Intel Iris Plus graphics.
