Intel will debut a new 28-core CPU this year

  • The 5GHz desktop CPU is official: This is the Intel Core i7-8086K

Shown off for the first time this week alongside Intel's debut of its Anniversary Edition 8086 CPU, the new chip was pitched against an overclocked 7980XE in Cinebench testing to show off its capabilities and managed to pull off a score of 7,334 while running at 4GHz.

The original 8086 had a humble 5MHz frequency and Intel pays homage to that by ensuring that the Core i7-8086K is capable of going up all the way to 5GHz. Nearing the end of its keynote, the semi-conductor maker surprised the audience with a quick tease of its yet-unnamed 28-cores CPU. It is a flat out beastly slice of silicon, even compared to Intel's burly Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition processor, which is a high-end desktop (HEDT) Skylake-E part with 18 cores and 36 threads clocked at 2.6GHz to 4.2GHz. (The performance gains at each clock frequency come out to 1.08x, 1.07x, and 1.06x at base, all-core, and max respectively).

You'll be able to enter the contest by heading to Intel's sweepstakes site, which will go live shortly. However, upon closer inspection of the product details listed in the benchmark, we could see that the CPU had a base clockspeed of 2.7GHz. They may be reserved for OEMs and boutique system builders instead of being made more generally available.


And the claim of up to 28 hours battery life (of local video playback) is an estimate at this point, and the tech isn't quite there at the moment, as Intel notes that it expects to eventually reach this level through "continued innovation" with its partners.

It's a big year for Intel. Intel hasn't said how numerous Core i7-8086K chips it has manufactured but notes that supplies are limited. Properly-built motherboards can handle high TDPs and top-end air coolers are, we've been told, capable of handling up to a 250W CPU.

"Today, at Computex in Taipei, I shared our vision for the future of the PC and introduced a wide range of new technologies that will help us and the broader ecosystem make this future a reality".
