Review: Tiny powerful desktop giant
I was always passionate about the small form factor PC. Back in the days, I was all over Shuttle small PCs, and back in 2013/2014, when Intel announced NUC small PCs, I was simply blown away.
Intel found its sense of humor and offered to send @AMDRyzen twitter account, a brand-new Core i7 8086K.
40th anniversary with 5.0GHz Turbo
Following the recent leaks and in order to celebrate the 40th anniversary since the release of the original 8086 processor, Intel has now - as expected - introduced the Core i7-8086K, an unlocked 6-core CPU with a base clock of 4.0GHz and Turbo clock hitting 5.0GHz.
Six-core Coffee Lake for notebooks

There has been much discussion about the eight cores sixteen threads Ryzen CPU and the fact that it will compete quite well against Intel's Core i7 6950 extreme edition but it looks like the Zen with eight cores with sixteen threads will get really close to the performance of the Core i7 7700K.
Compared with the Core i7-5960X
It is obvious that Intel's Broadwell-E HEDT launch is drawing near as with all the previous leaks we now have some of the first benchmarks of the flagship ten-core Core i7-6950X.
