Intel unveils 8th-Gen processor family for gaming, desktops”

The new family of 8th Gen Intel Core desktop processors will be available for purchase beginning October 5, 2017.

That's because the new generation of Coffee Lake chips include its first ever 6-core i5 processor, along with its first four-core i3 processor. It is capable of 4.7 GHz maximum single-core turbo frequency, the highest frequency ever from Intel thanks to Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, making it a performance powerhouse for both single and multi-threaded applications. It'll be interesting to see how much more it can be pushed, and whether 5GHz is something that will require watercooling, or more. "Our 8 Gen Intel Core desktop processors deliver tremendous improvements across the board and - for gamers, in particular- offer an unbeatable experience".

The new, more powerful chips are supported by the introduction of a new series of Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards, which help by providing more efficient power delivery. The new top-end Core i7-8700K and Core i7-8700 feature six cores and twelve threads, while the new Core i5-8600K and Core i5-8400 also have six cores but without Hyper-Threading, and the Core i3-8350K and Core i3-8100 have four physical cores without Hyper-Threading.

When compared to last year's flagship Core i7 chip, users would be able to have around 25% more FPS for demanding games like Gears of War 4.

The 8 Gen Intel Core unlocked "K" processors will also overclock to higher levels than prior generations. And editing 4K 360-degree videos will be up to 32 percent faster compared with the previous generation.

The new Z370 chipset also enables support for DDR4-2666 memory which was limited to DDR4-2400 in the case of Z270. The speed gains are even more impressive if your system is over three years old, but probably won't push many folks with 7th-gen Intel chips into upgrading.
