The Intel Core i7-8086K hits 5GHz without overclocking

Intel is 50 years old

The original 1978 Intel 8086 processor next to the Intel Core i7-8086K.

INTEL IS HAVING A WILLY-WAVING TIME at Computex, taking the covers off a limited edition Core i7 chip that sprints up to 5GHz as well teasing a 28-core processor.

The i7-8086K has a 5.0GHz boost clock with a base clock of 4.0GHz. During the Intel keynote, a GIGABYTE motherboard was used to run it at 5GHz.

Although Intel hasn't yet divulged the price of the new CPU, it's unlikely to come cheap. After years of pretty stagnant core counts, Intel and AMD have gone insane one-upping each other with new high-end chips with more and more cores, and we today Intel teased the next processor in that progression.

But if and when the chip does make its debut, it'll snatch pole position as the more core-leaden processors available in the consumer market; chips with more cores are around but they're more for tiresome data centre use. Intel hasn't said how numerous Core i7-8086K chips it has manufactured but notes that supplies are limited.

Bryant also briefly touched on Intel's plans for 5G, noting that it has partnered with Sprint to sell 5G-connected PCs in-store.

After the sweepstakes, the Intel Core i7-8086K will be available for purchase at retailers on June 8, the actual 40th anniversary of the Intel 8086 processor.

News of both chips overshadowed Intel's announcement on its upcoming Amber Lake Y-series and Whiskey Lake U-series CPUs.
