New Eighth-Gen CPUs Bring More Power To Laptops
In addition to the new Core brand, Intel also said that eighth-generation Core i5, i7 and i9 processors are available to laptops for the first time. The company said the i9 is the first mobile Intel CPU to come with six cores and 12 threads, making it the "highest-performance laptop processor Intel has ever built." The company also unveiled the availability of eighth-generation Core processors for the vPro platform for enterprises, as well as a new set of 300-series motherboards. Both moves mean partners will have even more new Core products to sell.
