Intel Will No Longer Issue Spectre Patch For Some Older Chips

Intel Announces First Core i9 Laptop CPU, New Mainstream Desktop Chipsets, 8th Gen vPro Platform, and More

On the desktop side, there are low power chips that would be ideal for home theater PCs and less demanding uses, along with new i3 and i5 models that'll likely end up in computers on Walmart shelves.

Intel announced that Penryn (launched in 2007), Yorkfield (2007), Wolfdale (2007), Bloomfield (2008), Clarksfield (2009), Nehalem-based Jasper Forest (2010), and Intel Atom "SoFIA" (2015) will no longer receive the Spectre patches, as originally promised. It comes fully unlocked for overclocking, which Intel says "provides the opportunity to tweak the platform performance to its fullest potential", especially for content creation, VR and gaming. They are manufactured using 14nm++ process technology delivering 41 percent more graphics performance during games. The company also unveiled a new Core platform extension that combines the processors with Intel Optane memory.

In Bejing today, Intel revealed its first mobile Core i9 chip.

This translates to a turbo frequency of up to 4.8 GHz, compared to 3.9 GHz for the Core i7 7th Gen processor. Headquarters chips will still exist, but the new hexa-core processors will have the suffix "H", including the Core i7-8750H and i7-8850H.

But that's not all that's new for laptops, as there are also some announcements for the U-series, which is the line of processors that you'll find in most ultrabooks and convertibles.

Now, while some of Intel's new processors launched previous year, what we're seeing this week is the introduction of both the super high performance i9 mobile processor for laptops, and Intel's 8th-generation processors for its vPro range of business-class computers, which is written up in a separate article to follow this one (and which will be linked to here).

Each of these new Coffee Lake chips also supports Intel's new Optane memory, which it says can increase the performance of SATA-based storage without impacting capacity. These hexa-core CPUs should make managing multiple units in strategy and other similar games much more efficient.

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

It isn't only i9 chips that are coming to laptops-Intel's entire eighth-generation lineup, including i7 and i5s, are making the leap to laptops.

The company introduced 8th generations Core Processors for desktops as well. Optane is a new technology that Intel unveiled at CES, which is created to boost HHD data speeds. Intel said this storage hardware can open large media files 1.7 times faster than before.
