Happy Birthday, 8086: Limited-Edition 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8086K Delivers Top Gaming Experience

Intel celebrates the 40th anniversary of the first 8086 processor today by announcing the availability of its new 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8086K limited-edition processor.

What’s New: The commemorative processor delivers Intel’s best desktop gaming performance with the power for advanced content creation and productivity.

The 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8086K processor celebrates Intel’s introduction of the first processor in the x86 series and the first 8086 microprocessor. Introduced on June 8, 1978, the original 8086 was the first 16-bit processor and the first processor capable of modern personal computing.

Why It’s Important: The new Intel Core i7-8086K processor delivers a fresh series of firsts. It features 6-cores, 12-threads and integrated graphics in an 1151-pin package supporting a 64-bit instruction set. And, it’s the first Intel processor to deliver up to 5.0 GHz single-core turbo frequency and Intel’s first 6-core processor with a 4.0 GHz base frequency out of the box. Higher frequency allows for improved single-threaded performance, which can be utilized across several gaming and content creation applications. The Intel Core i7-8086K processor also comes fully unlocked for overclocking.

How You Get It: In celebration of the x86 architecture and the first Intel 8086 microprocessor, Intel is giving away 8,086 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8086K processors. For 24 hours starting at 5 p.m. PDT June 7, fans can visit www.intel.com/8086sweepstakes to enter. After the 24-hour entry window, 8,086 lucky entrants will be randomly chosen. Visit the sweepstakes site for rules, restrictions and participating markets.

Its Place in History: In addition to commemorating the x86 architecture, the Intel Core i7-8086K celebrates another major milestone: Intel’s 50th anniversary and the celebration of its role in the technology industry and in driving innovation.

This year, Intel and its employees join together to celebrate a half-century of innovation that has profoundly changed the world, from power conservation and processors that fit on a pencil tip to conflict-free mineral sourcing and improving the quality of education for girls and underserved communities around the world.
