Intel’s New 8th Gen CPU’S named.

The new Intel 8th gen cpus have now been released. They need an Intel Z370 chipset mainboard to run which Asus has a good range of so far. The improvements are mainly a higher core count through the range with the i3 cpu’s having 4 cores and no hyper threading, and the i5 cpu’s having 6 cores and no hyper threading and the i7 having 6 cores with Hyper threading giving 12 Threads. I have priced up a couple of gaming systems using these new cpu’s. Im looking forward to building bases using these new cpu’s and seeing how they perform compared to the 7th gen.
