Intel's limited edition Core i7-8086K can hit 5GHz without overclocking

Intel 28-core CPU

Taking a break from showing off its limited edition 5GHz Core i7 chip and 28-core processors at Computex 2018, Intel championed its Low Power Display Technology which it reckons will cut battery life consumption in half in devices rocking mobile displays.

You have to travel back in time 40 years to June 1978 to witness the birth of x86 computing, in terms of market penetration-that is when Intel introduced its first 16-chip processor, the 8086, and in the process formed the foundation for modern computing.

The i7-8086K has a 5.0GHz boost clock with a base clock of 4.0GHz.

According to a report from Tom's Hardware, Intel will give away 8,086 of the limited edition CPUs via an online portal which is yet to go live.

Bill Clinton says 'Today Show' interview wasn't his 'finest hour'
Later in the day, Clinton clarified saying he "got hot under the collar". "People need to know I apologized". When asked whether he has apologized to Lewinsky , Clinton said no.

The contest is open to residents of the US, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK, France, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and China (excluding Hong Kong). Each of those countries have 500 up for grabs, except Germany, China and the U.S. which will have considerably more processors to give away (1,000, 2,000 and 2,086 respectively). The company has made a decision to commemorate the 40th anniversary of its 8086 processor by launching its first 5GHz desktop CPU, the aptly titled Core i7-8086K. The 8086K slots into a 300-series motherboard, and being an unlocked SKU, you'll be able to overclock it beyond 5GHz.

These should start appearing in 2-in-1s and laptops this September.

And the claim of up to 28 hours battery life (of local video playback) is an estimate at this point, and the tech isn't quite there at the moment, as Intel notes that it expects to eventually reach this level through "continued innovation" with its partners. We'll know those details later this year-Intel is aiming to ship the new part sometime in the fourth quarter. The mystery 28-core/56-thread chip is more than twice as fast, and almost five times faster than a Core i7-8700K, which we recorded a score of 1,522 in the same benchmark.
