Intel 8th-generation Core processors for desktop give focus on gaming



Intel has unveiled their new 8th-generation Core desktop family of chipsets that are said to boost gaming and streaming speeds. They even call their flagship product the “best gaming desktop processor ever.”

The new Coffee Lake family is built for gamers and content creators who need the power to achieve the result they want, and also overclockers who require capable processors to satisfy their needs. From the base Core i3 to the powerful Core i7, the new processors are designed to bring better desktop performance.

With the 8th-generation family, Intel offers their first 6-core Core i5 and 4-core Core i3 desktop processors. But, the top product here would be the Intel Core i7-8700K (the “K” indicates that the chip is unlocked for overclocking), which is what the company calls their best gaming desktop processor ever. It’s capable of a 4.7GHz maximum single-core turbo frequency, the highest frequency ever from Intel.

According to Intel, improvements on the 8th-generation for gaming brings up to 25 percent more frames per second compared to the 7th-generation family. With better computing and graphics performances, editing 4K 360-degree videos is up to 32 percent faster than the previous family of Intel processors.

If you’re planning on purchasing one, you’ll have to buy a new motherboard, as well — one from the Z370 chipset, to be exact.

Consumers will be able to get their hands on the new 8th-generation Intel Core desktop processors starting on October 5, 2017.

Apple M2 Mac mini Review

More Affordable, More Powerful



Apple silently revealed the 2023 M2 Mac mini to the world.

Back in 2005, the Mac mini G4 was the cheapest Mac you can buy for US$ 499.

Almost 18 years after, the Mac mini still is the cheapest Mac at just US$ 599.

That’s still a lot of savings versus buying a US$ 1299 iMac.

The biggest difference? The newest Mac mini runs two of the most powerful chips right now — the M2 and M2 Pro.

But is it actually the right Mac for you?

ZTE announces 5 new G5 series servers

More power



ZTE has released its latest G5 series servers which run on the 4th-generation Intel Xeon scalable processors to deliver more powerful computing abilities.

There are a total of five new server types announced, which will all support liquid cooling heat dissipation, high-density computing power, mass storage, and better flexibility and reliability:

  • 5200 G5 high-density server
  • R5300 G5 full-scenario universal server
  • R5500 G5 mass storage server
  • R6500 G5 heterogenous computing power server
  • R8500 G5 high-performance server

Extreme performance

The G5 series servers have the latest Intel Xeon 4th gen scalable processors which have up to 120 cores in 2 sockets. They will also support Intel Optane persistent memory 300 series (Crow Pass).

The R6500, in particular, has a built-in 10-to-20 computing intelligent acceleration engine which tries to achieve the best combination of computing power for various scenarios.

The servers may also be flexibly expanded. The R5300, for instance, provides many disk positions and high-speed I/O interfaces.

Additionally, the servers have a bandwidth design of 32 DDR5 memory slots. PCIe 5.0 improves bandwidth by 150% while bandwidth performance is also boosted by 50%.
