Intel's new Core i9 chips for laptops show incredible promise

This 8 Gen Intel Core processor family provides a powerful mobile platform for creators.

Acer Aspire Nitro 15 - $749 (about £530, AU$980) Sporting a faux carbon fiber lid, the Acer Nitro V 15 will be one of the more affordable Intel 8th gen H-series laptops available starting this month. Intel is aiming these processors at high-end laptops designed for gaming and content creation as well as VR and mixed reality applications. Intel says that as the PC gaming industry grows, new processors will provide desktop-like performance for laptops.

In addition, Intel is also now offering its 8th Generation desktop and mobile Core processors as well as Xeon models with its vPro management technology suite for business users.

However, the boost clock for Intel Core i9-8950HK can go up to 4.8GHz thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost or TVB but, to reach this level of boost clock a certain criteria is to be met.

Intel's new 6-core Core i9 chip is said to be the fastest notebook CPU ever and it gives way to 5GHz gaming laptops.

Apart from the speed and efficiency, Intel has brought its Optane high-speed memory to laptops through both direct Optane SSD for laptops such as Optane SSD 800p, as well as Optane hybrid drives for disk drives paired with SSDs.

According to Intel, the specs translate to 29 percent faster performance in everyday tasks compared to its previous generation Core i7-7820HK processor, and is 59 percent faster at 4K video editing.

The new H-series CPUs sit between the company's U-series - made for thin and light notebooks - and its powerhouse G-series units.

Indeed, we are told that "it is the first mobile Intel processor with six cores and 12 threads", to which the world can rightly wonder why it took so long.

Intel said the new mobile processor range adds a new Intel 300 Series Chipset with integrated Gigabit Wi-Fi, which can be twice as fast as the standard 2×2 802.11AC 80 MHz.

But this year, it looks like Intel's priciest new chips have gained some real ground.

Along with the new Coffee Lake chips, Intel is also preparing Optane memories for compatibility with the new laptop and desktop processors.

Intel have today announced that they're finally delivering data drive acceleration to their Intel Optane Memory technology.

8 Generation Intel® Core™ vs. 7 Generation Intel® Core™.

The first laptop-based Core i9-8950HK was MSI GT75 Titan. The performance results in up to 4.7x game loading and 1.7x media loading speed.
