The chipmaker says that its 8th generation Core i9 processor is the "highest-performance laptop processor Intel has ever built to deliver the best gaming and content creation experience on the go".

Asus ROG G703 The Asus ROG G703 pairs up the new Intel Core i9-8950HK processor with Nvidia GTX 1080 for unparalleled performance in a gaming laptop.

There are also new vPro flavors of both mobile and desktop processors, which include Optane memory and Thunderbolt 3 support.

The six core Core i9 mobile chips shadow their desktop counterparts in taking the flagship mantle for laptops alongside five newly announced Core i5 and Core i7 performance mobile H-series chips and four new U-series Core chips for lower end systems.

When compared to the Core i7-7820HK, Intel claims the 8950K will allow 4K video editing to be 59 percent faster using Adobe Premier Pro.

The Intel Core i9-8950HK comes sporting six cores and 12 threads and can hit clock speeds of up to 4.8GHz when boosted, promising some serious performance in a chip suitable for laptops.

Oklahoma Teachers Walk Out To Protest Low Pay And Inadequate Funding
Kentucky teachers continued to protest on Monday, leading to the shuttering of all public schools in the state. It was the first new revenue bill to become law in Oklahoma in 28 years, bucking decades of tax-cut orthodoxy.

For one thing, the company's new 300-series mobile chipset will have built-in Intel 802.11ac wireless, which I've generally found more reliable than the competition.

HP Omen 15 The HP Omen 15 is not only of the brands first laptops to feature a hexa-core Intel Core processor, but also a Nvidia GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU. It is the first mobile Intel processor with six cores and 12 threads.

All three new types of product are aimed to give Intel what it needs to deliver top-tier performance for every laptop price point, goal and form factor.

But that's not all that's new for laptops, as there are also some announcements for the U-series, which is the line of processors that you'll find in most ultrabooks and convertibles. The U-Series processors also include integrated Iris Plus graphics with 128MB of on-package eDRAM, which should help improve overall graphics performance significantly.

Intel Optane memory is a smart and adaptable system accelerator for desktop and mobile platforms, increasing the performance and responsiveness of SATA-based storage technology without compromising storage capacity.

The Core i9-8950HK is based on the same Coffee Lake architecture as the mainstream desktop 8th Gen models, rather than the beefier Skylake-X architecture which all desktop Core i9 CPUs are based on. Along with a handful of new desktop processors, we've got new high-end gaming laptop CPUs, and, finally, the full range of motherboard chipsets. This powerful combination provides up to 4.7 times the game loading and 1.7 times faster media loading.
