On 8th June 1978, Intel launched their first x86 processor. To mark the 40th anniversary of this momentous day, Intel have produced the special edition Core i7-8086K. This is a limited edition CPU, Intel are producing no more and as such once our stock has sold out you will have missed your opportunity to own this truly legenday product.

Not merely a symbolic gesture, the 8086k is at the pinnacle of CPU engineering. It features 6 cores and 12 threads and, being a compatible K-edition, it will automatically overclock from its already impressive base clock of 4GHz to 5GHz.

This processor is available in limited quantities so will only be available for purchase for a short time. Get it while stocks last!

The Intel Core i7-8086K: Hexa-Core Processor with Hyper-Threading

To mark the fortieth anniversary of the initial x86 chip's release, Intel have made a special edition core i7 chip. It bears the name i7-8086k in homage to the original and is boxed in special edition packaging.

As with all Intel's k-series CPUs the i7-8086k natively supports overclocking. The latest 8086K anniversary CPU has a base clock of 4.0Ghz and, thanks to Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, this rises up toa blazing 5.0Ghz. This makes it one of the fastest stock consumer CPU's ever released by Intel.

The i7-8086K's L3 Cache has been increased to 12 Megabytes and it features six CPU cores as well as Hyper-Threading. As a result 12 threads rather than just 6 can be processed simultaneously and all at a low TDP of just 95 Watts.

The integrated GPU has been similarly optimised. With 24 Execution Units, it offers plenty of graphics processing power for Intel Quick Sync, intense computational tasks and of course a gaming.

Additionally, the GPU supports DirectX 12 with Feature Level 12_1, OpenGL 4.5 and OpenCL 2.0 as well as 4K, UHD- resolutions at 60 Hz via Displayport - provided the processor is paired with a compatible motherboard.

As for memory, the 4-core processors support speeds up to 2.400 MHz, while six-core processors support up to 2.666 MHz.

Please note that the i7-8086 is compatible only with the 300- series chipset, it cannot be used with older chipsets. The boxed version also comes without a CPU cooler.
