Last month in September Intel announced its new family of 8th Gen Core desktop processors. Starting October 5, Intel's 8 Gen Core desktop processors are now available for purchase.
Offering a range of performance options for consumers, including unlocked "K" processors at each Intel Core brand, the 8 Gen Intel Core desktop processors are built for those who require premium performance. Basically, the new desktop processor family is built for gamers, content creators, and overclockers.
The new desktop processor family includes the new 8 Gen Intel Core i7 processor, which is the best desktop gaming processor ever from Intel, along with the first-ever 6-core Intel Core i5 desktop processor and 4-core Intel Core i3 desktop processor.
These processors deliver frame rate improvements of up to 25 percent compared to 7 Gen Intel Core processors, enabling smooth gaming experiences. Content creators can expect 65 percent faster editing compared with a 3-year-old machine.
HWBOT, the authority on regulating international overclocking competitions and rankings, was fast at work to document overclocking records with two total world records and nine global first-places for the 8 Gen Intel Core i7-8700K processor.
The 8 Gen Intel Core desktop processors are available through multiple retailers, along with new Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards from all major motherboard manufacturers.
