Intel started developing 28-core CPUs at 5 GHz that will be released later this year.
Intel revealed the CPU with a demonstration in Computex 2018. According to Anandtech, the processor reached a score of 7,334 in the Cinebench R15 benchmark, which is the best score that a single-processor PC can achieve. Gregory Bryant, vice president of Client Computing Group, said: “When people really need to do things, more than 80 percent turn to their PC.”
It’s the first time that a single-socket desktop CPU has stacked up in many cores, and it’s certainly more powerful than ever. Intel promises to launch the chip by Q4 of 2018. Intel’s 18-core chip is priced at $ 1,999, so it is expected that a 28-core processor will have a price well in excess of $ 2,000.
In April we reported that Intel announced the first eighth-generation Core i9 chips for laptops. The model is called Intel Core i9-8950HK, which is said to accelerate to 4.8 GHz with turbo boost and is the first of its kind to offer six cores and 12 threads. The company promises that processors will translate up to a 29% increase in total speed compared to previous seventh generation Intel chips, with more than 41% improvement in games and 59% faster 4K video editing. The processor has a large 12 MB cache and is also unlocked for overclocking.
Intel has dominated computer processors for more than a decade, occupying a significant market share in this area. This is no longer the case, as Samsung has overtaken Intel to become the world’s largest chip maker by revenue.
