Intel strikes back with 'highest-performance' six-core Core i9 mobile processor

The Asus ROG G703 is one of the first laptops to sport Intel's Core i9 mobile processor.                  Sean Hollister  CNET

The high-performance Core i9 processor is part of Intel's eighth generation product lineup, which comes with an integrated software that addresses the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws revealed in January.

AMD has its Ryzen platform, which will be upgraded to Ryzen 2 later this year as AMD seeks to keep the pressure on Intel, which as noted is great news for consumers wanting more bang for their buck. If neither motherboard manufacturers nor Microsoft are willing to deliver the patches, then there's not much point for Intel to develop them.

Intel's new Core i9 flagship even comes unlocked, so you can overclock it - or better yet, leave it to the pros. Intel says it expects PC companies to ship pre-overclocked 5GHz+ systems shortly after launch.

Barry Hearn- Joshua Wilder Talks May Start Soon
A fight with America's Deontay Wilder , the WBC champion, could be in the works, the fight being the most in-demand right now. In 2018, following more than two years of inactivity, The Ring magazine stripped him of his last remaining title.

Mobile and desktop Core i9 chips work with Intel Optane. An example of the new branding would be Intel Core i5+ or an Intel Core i7+. The new generation processors will be providing high level and ultimate gaming experience for customers.

There are four new SKUs, all of which come with the same 28W TDP, support for dual-channel DDR4-2400 memory, Intel Iris Plus GPU with 128MB of eDRAM and Intel Optane Memory support.

Intel's partners have already started announcing refreshed laptops with these new processors inside.

Other Intel Coffee Lake mobile CPUs announced are for U-series with Intel Core i7-8559U leading the U-series. Below that are a couple of 4-core/8-thread chips, the Core i5-8400H and Core i5-8300H. While the rest of the lineup has been focusing on more cores and power, it seems likely that the Y-series will continue to focus on efficiency, and it Intel could possibly be waiting for that to release its first 10nm chip. Intel latest processor is expected to be the best chip ever built and is also the first mobile processor which will be having 6 cores and 12 threads.

Intel Optane memory is a smart and adaptable system accelerator for desktop and mobile platforms, increasing the performance and responsiveness of SATA-based storage technology without compromising on storage capacity. However, Intel's Coffee Lake chips are for the top computers. The company says that when Optane is paired with a hard disk, games load up to 4.7 times faster and media loads up to 1.7 times quicker than when using just a hard drive.

Intel's vPro platform is created to help businesses work faster and be more secure.
