Intel Unveils Latest Core i9 Processor
Intel’s Israeli research and development center played a major part in the development of the new processor
The high-performance Core i9 processor is part of Intel’s eighth generation product lineup, which comes with an integrated software that addresses the Spectre and Meltdown security flaws revealed in January.
The Core i9 processor is aimed for gaming, graphic design, video editing and 3-D graphics. According to the statement, the processors are capable of delivering 41% more frames per second in gameplay and edit 4K video up to 59% faster than previous generation processors.
The extremely high performance provided by the Core i9 processor comes as an answer to the ever growing needs of gamers, Karin Eibschitz Segal, the director of Intel’s Israeli development center said in a statement.
Intel also launched a new extension which combines Intel’s eighth generation processors with its system accelerator Optane memory, capable of accelerating performance to a speed of up to 4.8GHz, while adjusting cooling systems to performance needs.
On Monday, it was reported that Apple will cease using Intel processors in its Mac computers starting 2020.
