Intel also expanded its eighth-generation desktop-class processor lineup today, with the Core i3-8300, i5-8500, and i5-8600.

Intel on Tuesday unveiled its latest laptop processors based on the Coffee Lake platform, most notably bringing its high-performance Core i9 line to laptops for the first time in the same thermal profile that the existing 15-inch MacBook Pro design can accommodate -but the new chips still don't support LPDDR4 RAM. This leverages the 14nm++ process technology enabling them to deliver up to 41% more frames per second in gameplay.

Intel claims 29 percent overall performance boost compared to the seventh-generation Core i7 desktop processor, and 88 percent better performance for those looking to upgrade from a "three-year old" system.

Intel's Coffee Lake U series chip is two times more powerful than 8 generation Kaby Lake R with more quad-core chips that can reach 2.3 GHz to 3.0 GHz and cache size from 4MB to 8MB.

Having "more cores" is definitely new mantra this season irrespective of desktop or laptop processors.

Intel's new 6-core Core i9 chip is said to be the fastest notebook CPU ever and it gives way to 5GHz gaming laptops. This will mostly benefit desktop gamers who already have an SSD for their OS/boot drive, as you can keep that performance and use an Optane Memory module to instead accelerate data access on your secondary drive.

Astros' Keuchel gives up 7 hits in 5-1 loss to Rangers
BREWERS 2, PADRES 1: Orlando Arcia singled in Ji-Man Choi with two outs in the 12th inning to lift Milwaukee at San Diego. Luis Severino (1-0) pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings for the Yankees, who won their opener for the first time since 2011.

Intel's low-power U-series Core i5 chips would come with four cores and eight threads for laptops. This new mobile Core chips can support software mitigations and Intel patched to fix the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. It will feature six cores, 12 threads and a 4.8GHz max turbo speed. While the rest of the lineup has been focusing on more cores and power, it seems likely that the Y-series will continue to focus on efficiency, and it Intel could possibly be waiting for that to release its first 10nm chip.

But this year, it looks like Intel's priciest new chips have gained some real ground.

The new processor also comes with Intel's Optane tech which increases memory and storage performance, as well as Intel's 300 Series Chipset, which has integrated fast Gigabit Wi-Fi.

As is typically the case, the Core i9 on mobile is a very different beast than its desktop counterpart.

The company also has new branding in place which will see "+" badge on select processors to tell consumers that "they are purchasing a device that has the combination of Intel Core performance with the acceleration of Intel Optane memory". Other H-series CPUs announced by Intel include Xeon E-2176M, i7-8850H, i7-8750H, i5-8400H, and Core i5 8300-H.
