Intel at the time, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the existence of a family of processors Pentium CPU has released the Pentium G3258. From other models of Pentium this distinguishes an unlocked multiplier, allowing you to easily overclock the CPU.
Now it became known that Intel is preparing another anniversary processor. This time it will be dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the legendary announcement of the Intel 8086, introduced in 1978.
To demonstrate the gap between this CPU and modern solutions, let me remind you that the Intel 8086 is the first 16-bit processor. Its clock frequency, depending on the version ranged from 4 to 16 MHz. It consisted of 29,000 transistors and was produced according to the process 3000 nm. By the way, is in honor of the Intel 8086 and its successors and coined the term “x86-compatible processor”.
In General, in honor of the anniversary we will shortly provide the CPU Core i7-8086K. However, for me, is less interesting than the Pentium G3258 at the time. Apparently, the Core i7-8086K will differ from their counterparts only frequencies. According to leaks, it will work on the frequency of 4,0-5,1 GHz. Yeah, it’s impressive, given that the Core i7-8700K has a frequency of 3.7-4.7 GHz, but since both of those CPU have an unlocked multiplier, that is to overclock Core i7-8700K to the level of the Core i7-8086K is not difficult.
In General, the new head the whole line of Coffee Lake. Most likely, not only in frequency, but at a price. When present, it is unclear, but it is possible, June 8, as it is this day 40 years ago, Intel announced the 8086.
