    40th Anniversary Intel Core i7-8086K listed by online retailers

    Breaking new ground, this would be the first Intel CPU to boost to 5.00GHz out of the box.

    Do not underestimate the power of e-peen bragging rights, having one of these in your system spec signature will make you so cool amongst the plebs, making do with their boring 8700K's.

    Re: 40th Anniversary Intel Core i7-8086K listed by online retailers

    Well I just bought a 2600x, same specs but a lower max boost, I'm not paying more than double for a little extra boost, hell the normal i7 isn't worth it for half on top of the price of the 2600x. I like the name though, good to remind people that computers were not invented in 2006 just for candy crush and Facebook.

    I'm looking at this thinking it will be a good choice for a top end overclocker system? bit pricey though for a gamer build as would rather opt for a better GPU.

    Re: 40th Anniversary Intel Core i7-8086K listed by online retailers

    So does this processor suffer from the previous spectre and meltdown issues. Or have they simply patch the mircocode like existing CPUs?

    With that in mind I'd rather wait for CPUs that have a proper fix in place not some workaround that affects performance.

    Next CPU for me will be Zen based. Intel have lost the plot.

    Next it will be the 80286K, being a modern part it will have an integrated A20 gate

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A20_line

    (apologies if that 286 bug triggers anyone else who is as old as I am)

    Re: 40th Anniversary Intel Core i7-8086K listed by online retailers

    I had an original 8086 too! Or rather my dad did. Man it was crappy and slow (running at a massive 5 MHz, yes that's mega not giga) compared to the 286, 386 that were around at the time but out of budget. Had a 30 Mb hard drive (yes that mega not giga or tera). But so began my journey into x86 pc computing...

    I built a x86-64 operating system for my compsci 3rd year project and completely forgot to turn on the A20 gate. I spent weeks trying to work out why certain 64-bit physical addresses (those with the 21st bit set) just would not map correctly before I came across that wiki entry.

    Nothing makes you appreciate Windows and Linux more than trying to do it yourself and failing miserably for months on end.

    lol, I feel your pain. Lovely when something like a home grown scheduler works though isn't it

    This is not a mass production chip. Basically a few unicorns from the lab that won the silicon lottery. I'm sure some Sheik with infinite budget will buy these.

    It's like when a finely crafted ISR in assembler works on the first try

    Good old Intel, they start with a lie calling the 8086 the first 16 bit cpu. The TMS9900 was out two years earlier, there may have been others.

    Edit: Blimey that story's a crock of history rewriting!

    Apparently this was the first commercially available one but it was multi-chip:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMP-16

    This is apparently was the first single chip one:
