Introducing Intel’s First-Ever Core™ I9 Mobile Processor

The mobile 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor family

Be ready for amazing experiences in gaming, VR, content creation, and entertainment wherever your computing takes you with the highest performance mobile 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor family. This latest addition to the 8th Generation processor family extends all the capabilities users have come to love in our mobile H series platforms with advanced innovations that deliver exciting new features to immerse you in incredible experiences on a variety of form factors.

Ultimate Mobile Platform Performance
The newest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors redefine enthusiast mobile PC performance now with up to six cores and 12 MB of cache memory for more processing power—that’s two more cores than the previous Generation Intel® Core™ processor family—Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and new Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) to opportunistically and automatically increase core frequency whenever processor temperature and turbo budget allows.

Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) delivers multitasking support in the latest Generation of Intel Core processors. For the enthusiast, the fully-unlocked 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor provides the opportunity to tweak the platform performance to its fullest potential and enjoy hardcore mobile gaming and VR experiences.

The New Mobile 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family Delivers:

  • An impressive portfolio of standard and unlocked systems for a broad range of usages and performance levels.
  • First mobile Intel® Core™ platform with support for Intel® Optane™ memory on board unleashing the power of your computer, enabling it to be more adaptable and responsive.
  • Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 to give you that extra burst of performance when you need it.
  • Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology), which allows each processor core to work on two tasks at the same time, improving multitasking, speeding up workflows, and accomplishing more in less time.
  • Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB), supported on Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor and Intel® Xeon® E-2186M processor, to opportunistically and automatically increase core frequency whenever processor temperature and turbo budget allows.
  • DDR4 RAM memory technology support, which allows systems to have up to 32 GB of DRAM and up to 2666 MT/s memory transfer speeds.
  • Fully unlocked (Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor) and partially unlocked (Intel® Core™ i7-8850H processor) processors to provide more control and more granularity for overclocking.1
  • New Intel® Wireless-AC 2x2 160MHz to deliver Wi-Fi throughput that smashes through the gigabit barrier.

No Compromise Mobile Gaming
Outstanding gaming experiences extend beyond your personal smooth gameplay to your entire gaming community. The newest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor family makes it easy to share those experiences by live-streaming or recording, editing, and posting your epic highlights.

 

Incredible VR
Great VR experiences involve the entire platform, not just any one component. The ideal combination of processor, graphics, I/O connectivity, display, and audio are required. A high-performance processor is key to achieving a balanced platform to make your VR experiences great. Attach your premium head-mounted display (HMD) to an Intel® Core™ i9, i7, or i5 processor-based PC, and prepare to be amazed.

Features At-a-Glance

   

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0

Dynamically increases the processor’s frequency, as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits.

Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology)

Delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.

Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB)

Supported on Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor and Intel® Xeon® E-2186M processor, opportunistically and automatically increases core frequency whenever processor temperature and turbo budget allows.

Intel® UHD Graphics

Play 4K UHD videos with exceptional clarity, view and edit even the smallest details of photos, and play today’s modern games.
Intel® Quick Sync Video — Delivers excellent video conferencing capability, fast video conversion, online sharing, and fast video editing and authoring.

Integrated Memory Controller
Intel® Smart Cache

Offers stunning memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth.
Dynamically allocates shared cache to each processor core, based on workload, reducing latency and improving performance.

Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)

Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.

Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard
Instructions (Intel® AES)

A fast, secure AES engine for a variety of encryption apps, including whole disk encryption, flee storage encryption, conditional access of 4K UHD content, internet security, and VoIP. Consumers benefit from protected internet and email content, plus fast, responsive disk encryption.2
