Computex 2018: Intel Teases Audience With An Unnamed 28-Cores CPU

Intel's big announcement yesterday at Computex was Whiskey Lake and Amber Lake eighth-generation Core processors alongside showing off a prototype 28-core chip. The company says the six-core/12-thread CPU would be its first ever to reach a 5.0GHz turbo frequency without overclocking. If you're unable to enter or don't win, the processor will be available for purchase on June 8th 2018.

During the Computex 2018 keynote, Intel also teased a single-socket, 28-core, 56-thread CPU that's expected to be part of the Skylake Extreme Core Count range. As such, we can expect Intel will charge a hefty premium for its new 28-core models and employ some type of defeaturing, such as removing AVX-512, ECC, and multi-socket support to discourage the practice. According to Intel, the new display technology will be able to extend battery life by 4 to 8 hours compared to traditional displays, and it's being developed in partnership with display manufacturers Sharp and Innolux. Intel said that this particular 28C/56T processor will be running at 5GHz, which is absolutely incredible.

The new core isn't just a top-end SKU, however - it's a limited edition CPU, with just 50,000 parts planned at this point.

AMD is now offering CPUs with 16 cores and 32 threads on its Threadripper chips in comparison to the 18-core chip that Intel is offering on its Core i9 Extreme. In the demonstration (embedded above, starting at around the 1hr10min10sec mark), the chip scored 7,334 in Cinebench R15, a benchmark we use frequently in many of our reviews.

Meanwhile, for desktop users, Bryant announced that Intel will be rolling out a new X-series and Intel Core S-series processor "by the end of the year". They will arrive in more than 70 new laptops and 2-in-1s this fall, and offer double-digit performance improvements over the current generation of chips.

Intel's new beast is a huge 28C/56T processor that will compete with Threadripper 2 later this year from AMD, and ASUS was showing it off smashing through some incredible Cinebench results.
