Default Intel changed its desktop gen. 8 mainstream Core processors' policies.

Greetings, therefore hello!

The changes are done at least to the flagships units in each class of the 8th gen. Core processors as of the day this thread.

I just went thru Intel's database and these are the highlights:

1- i3's core count descends to four (4) while Turbo Boost is still lacking and Hyper Threading support is removed.

2- i5's high-end units get a core count of six (6) cores with the same lack of Hyper Threading while the lower-end units stay with four (4) cores but acquire Hyper Threading to get eight (8) threads.

3- i7's high-end units get a core count of six (6) cores keeping Hyper Threading support to have twelve (12) threads while the lower-end units stay with four (4) cores with Hyper Threading.

Word!

i3 used to be two cores so the i3 ascends to 4 cores, not descends.

Free English lesson from Celery.

I've been here longer and have more posts than you so what's the rank got to do with it?

Rank as in being part of the moderator team. Since I am admin on Techist I was added to the mod team here, originally to help with the merger.
