As the PC gaming industry rapidly grows, Intel said it has seen increasing demand for fast laptops that can provide desktop-like performance for an immersive and responsive experience, including the ability to stream and record without compromising gameplay while still enabling portability. They are manufactured using 14nm++ process technology delivering 41 percent more graphics performance during games.

Not only is the Core i9-8950HK the first Core i9 developed specifically for notebooks, but it's also the first Intel mobile processor to offer 6 cores and 12 threads. An example of the new branding would be Intel Core i5+ or an Intel Core i7+.

Additionally, Intel is also launching new 8th generation chips targeted at mainstream laptops and desktops today.

Up until now, Intel has been revealing its eighth-generation Core processors at a slow but steady pace.

Mobile computing is becoming increasingly popular and with this in mind, Intel announced the highest performance CPU's for laptops that leverage Thermal Velocity Boost. New media features, such as 360 degree video content and virtual reality, increase the need for higher performance computers and laptops, Intel said. Overall, the 8th Gen Core i9 is 29 percent better in performance compared to the previous generation 7th Gen Core i7. They include new Core i3 and i5 chips, as well as an i7 with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.5Ghz.

But this year, it looks like Intel's priciest new chips have gained some real ground. Based on Intel's promises and early hands-on time with several of these 8th-generation and Core i9 laptops, Intel seems well on its way to delivering.

The new H-series CPUs sit between the company's U-series - made for thin and light notebooks - and its powerhouse G-series units.
