For 2017 we set a new challenge: 500 drones. Well known and up-and-coming innovators, makers and experts inside Intel and from across the industry help us explore how technologies are conceived, how they work and how we can use them in our everyday lives. Founded in 1968 to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the world's first computer microprocessor in 1971. This decade, our mission is to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on earth.
Intel has unveiled what it says is its most powerful processor built for laptops. The chip giant says the new eighth-generation Core i9 chip is the highest-performance laptop processor it has released to date. Its new Core i9, i7 and i5 processors for laptops are manufactured using 14nm process technology and based on the Coffee Lake platform, which the company says offers notably better performance than its predecessor, delivering up to 41 percent more frames per second in gameplay and editing 4K video up to 59 percent faster. The most powerful chip in this latest series is the Intel Core i9-8950HK processor, Intel's first mobile chip with six cores (two more than the previous generation) and 12 threads. It comes fully unlocked for overclocking, which Intel says "provides the opportunity to tweak the platform performance to its fullest potential," especially for content creation, VR and gaming.
Technology continues to redefine how we experience and interact with the world. From processors that can power truly immersive VR experiences to smart and connected homes that understand and anticipate your needs, the 8th Generation Intel Core processor is revolutionizing how we play, shop, travel, learn, and work.
