Historic Performance 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition Processor

40 Years of Technology Innovation - Intel 8086 Processor

The 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8086K Limited Edition processor celebrates the 40th anniversary of Intel introducing the x86 architecture with the Intel 8086 micro processor, which formed the foundation for modern computing.

About the Intel Core i7-8086K Processor

The Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition processor is more than just a commemorative processor. It celebrates Intel’s legacy of industry-leading performance by featuring our first 6-core, 12-thread processor with integrated graphics in an 1151-pin package supporting a 64-bit instruction set.

The Intel Core i7-8086K processor is also the first Intel processor to deliver up to 5.0GHz single-core turbo frequency out of the box, fully unlocked for overclocking. The higher frequency allows for improved single threaded performance to handle the most demanding games and consistently high frame rates, which can be utilized across several gaming and content creation applications.

In addition to commemorating the x86 architecture, the Intel Corei7-8086K processor celebrates another major milestone: Intel’s 50th anniversary and its role in the technology industry and in driving innovation.
