  • Intel Celebrates x86 40th Anniversary with 5GHz Core i7

Intel has made plenty of revelations over at Computex 2018 - including several seriously beefy new processors - but not everything is about performance, and on the power efficiency front, the company also made a big statement, promising laptops with a battery life of up to 28 hours. The company turns 50 this year (that's a helluva lot in silicon years) and its original 8086 processor, the same one used in IBM's original PC design, is turning 40. The 8086K slots into a 300-series motherboard, and being an unlocked SKU, you'll be able to overclock it beyond 5GHz.

The Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition processor features Intel's first 6-core, 12-thread processor with integrated graphics in an 1151-pin package supporting a 64-bit instruction set.

Intel will give away 8,086 of the CPUs through the Intel 8086 Sweepstakes. The countries are: USA, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK, France, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and China (excluding Hong Kong).

No purchase is necessary to enter the contest, but entries do have to be submitted via an online form that will appear here once the contest is open. Winners will be informed by email no later than two weeks after the closure of the sweepstakes and then delivery of the processor will happen six to eight weeks after that.

SES launches SES-12 satellite onboard SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket
According to the company CEO Elon Musk , this could open the solar system to exploration while minimizing the cost of spacecraft. The launch was, of course, the highlight of the event but the breathtaking photos that followed were the real winners.

"The Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition processor is more than just a commemorative processor".

Intel didn't announce how much the chip would cost, though the competition website lists its average retail price as $425. So far so Core i7-8700K, but where the Core i7-8086K differs is in the frequencies, which sit at a base of 4GHz and a peak turbo frequency of 5GHz, both 300MHz higher than on the chip it's based on.

At Computex 2018, Intel showcased a new beast CPU that will release later this year.

And Intel will be giving away 8,086 of the Core i7 microprocessors in a competition on Thursday, with residents in the United Kingdom among those invited to take part.
