"This final piece of the puzzle rounds out the availability of the Intel Core X-series processor family, providing content creators and enthusiasts with the much-anticipated Extreme Edition, the most extreme desktop processor ever introduced", Intel said.

We are already familiar with the confusion the company has created regarding the naming and generation. And for the first time, buyers of the budget-priced Core i3 chips get four cores instead of two.

The lineup includes six-core processors Intel Core i7 and i5, and a pair of Quad-core Core i3. With Turbo Boost 2.0 enabled, it's single-core clock can be cranked up to 4.7Ghz. Intel says that its X-series chips are good for "megatasking" applications such as gaming, streaming and encoding videos simultaneously, but the Core i7-8700K is now better for just gaming. The chipsets offer enhanced performance for video editing as well and can handle 4K 360-degree videos easily and up to 32 percent faster compared with the previous generation plus, editing content is now up to 65 percent faster compared with a 3-year-old PC.

The top of the stack is "Intel Core i7-8700K" which is touted as the company's best gaming desktop processor ever. "These processors are supported with new Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards", sats Intel. According to Intel, this was needed due to an improved power delivery, support for DDR4-2666 memory and more.

Today, Intel announced its latest Core processor family for desktop called Coffee Lake.

The new chips will be available worldwide from October 5th, Intel has confirmed, with the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) boxes to feature the parts arriving before the end of the year.

Intel has expanded all of the Coffee Lake desktop chips' core counts, offering a 25 percent boost to FPS and 45 percent better multitasking performance compared to their 7 gen CPU counterparts. O the three variants, the Core i5 and i7 will both have six cores, whereas the i3 will have four cores. Pricing ranges from $117 for the Core i3 up to $359 for the high-end Core i7-8700K. Manufacturers are expected to offer more than 50 new motherboard and system designs created especially for those chips. Each processor is supported with new Intel Z370 chipset-based motherboards.

Obviously it was in response to AMD's competitive threat, alongside the endless and unstoppable rise of ARM processors that Intel had to threaten Microsoft and Qualcomm not to further popularise with a version of Windows 10 running on it.
