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.

Damned if I know. I haven't heard anything on either site in a very long time.

Yeah, the merger was going to happen long ago.

I was against it as I like this forum as a familial atmosphere.

In more successful forums in their field, edit buttons stay for a reasonable time. Here it waits for you to lose focus for a moment and then it turns invisible

Intel_man

I'm personally sticking with my 3rd gen. i5 until it gives away or a real worthy difference in preferred performance takes place. It's even okay running games at 4K in console performance and PC quality at least when over clocked to 4.2GHz with my new SLI setup.

My i5-3570 is still rock solid and when it's over I still have my 2nd gen i3-2100 to take over.

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

My 8350 is still alright too. The only reason I would have to update is power consumption. Performance improvements haven't been that great lately so efficiency would be the only reason I would see to update.

Yeah? Well, I have a G540 Celeron too and guess what? They all fit the same motherboard!
