The PC gaming industry is rapidly growing, and Intel has been getting an increased demand for faster laptops that can provide a desktop-like performance for a more responsive and immersive gaming experience.

The company recently announced its new lineup of high-performance mobile products that also include a new generation of processors.

The announcement included the debut of Intel’s first ever i9 CPU for laptops which is highlighted as the most powerful laptop processor that the company has ever created. Its primary target is to deliver the best content creation experience alongside the highest-performance in gaming ever.

Meet Intel’s new Core platform extension

Besides the arrival of the brand new Intel Core i9 processor targeted at mobile, the company also announced a new Intel Core platform extension that encapsulates all the benefits sported by the 8th Gen Intel Core CPUs with Intel Optane memory.

Intel rounded out the family of high-performance desktop CPUs and chipsets that offer modern standby and ambient computing capabilities and shared with the audience brand new details on the 8th gen Intel Core vPro platform.

Coffee Lake CPUs deliver the ultimate gaming and content creation experience

The 8th Gen Intel Core i9, i7, and i5 CPUs are based on the Coffee Lake platform and leverage the 14nm++ process technology.

This means that they will be able to deliver up to 41% more FPS while gaming and they’ll also be able to edit 4K videos up to 59% faster compared to the previous generation while using the same GPUs.

Intel Core i9-8950HK sports a 6-core and 12 thread configuration

The 8th Gen Intel Core i9-8959HK is created to promote the known limits of performance because this is the first ever mobile Intel CPU with six core and 12 threads.

The processor comes fully unlocked, and it uses the new Intel Thermal Velocity Boost which is able to increase clock frequency up to 200 MHz if the CPU’s temperature is low enough. In other words, users can enjoy a turbo frequency of up to 4.8 GHz.
