Intel reported the primary Core i9 8th era chips for laptops today.

All newly released chips, Intel's i9, i7 and i5 Coffee Lake chips are part of the H-series lineup.

Intel is also debuting new 8th-gen Core i7 and i5 chips right alongside the Core i9, and they're all part of the Coffee Lake generation of chips, built on the 14nm++ process technology.

The new laptop processor is also the first ever mobile Intel processor to have six cores and 12 threads. They include new Core i3 and i5 chips, as well as an i7 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5Ghz. This is a new, higher-clocked single-core frequency that will only kick in if the CPU is running below 53C.

Also announced was the addition of eighth-generation chips to the business-centered vPro platform, which provides enhanced security and performance to Intel chips created to fulfill enterprise-level needs.

On mobile processors that aren't as geared as high-performance (more day to day stuff), Intel introduced CPUs with 4 cores, 8 threads and with its IRIS Plus graphics.

This new 8th Gen Intel Core mobile processor family also comes with a new Intel 300 Series Chipset which supports Gigabit Wi-Fi.

Up until now, Intel has been revealing its eighth-generation Core processors at a slow but steady pace.

All told, Intel is launching 11 new mobile CPUs, new Optane branding, a bevy of new desktop chips, and new chipsets.

Many of these new processors, including the Core i9, will come equipped with Intel Optane memory as well, speeding up load times from SATA-connected data drives. However, they won't be getting the new 8th-gen Kaby Lake R chips which are slightly improved versions of the Coffee Lake processors.

There's no question that there are specific details of Intel's CPU implementations that are proprietary to Intel, but the idea that its core frequencies qualify under that label is simply absurd.

Eighth-gen vPro systems with Optane memory can run up to 78% faster than previous generations. It makes disk storage systems more responsive. Numerous companies have already announced devices that will feature the mobile i9, including the new Gigabyte Aorus X9. "This powerful combination provides up to 4.7 times the game loading and 1.7 times faster media loading", with more on Data Drive Acceleration here.
