Features & Specifications
Intel® Core™ i7-8086K Processor Key Features
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0: Dynamically increases the processor frequency up to 4.7GHz when applications demand more performance. Speed when you need it, energy efficiency when you don’t.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology: Allows each processor core to work on two tasks at the same time for up to 12 total independent tasks (threads) providing parallel processing capability for better multi-tasking with threaded applications.
Intel® Smart Cache: 12MB of shared cached allows faster access to your data by enabling dynamic and efficient allocation of the cache to match the needs of each core significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance.
CPU Overclocking Enabled (with Intel® Z370 chipset): Fully unlocked core multiplier, power, per core overclocking, base clock and memory ratios enable ultimate flexibility for overclocking.
Graphics Overclocking Enabled (with Intel® Z370 chipset): Unlocked graphics multiplier allows for overclocking to boost the graphics clock speed.
Integrated Memory Controller: Supports 2 channels of DDR4-2666 memory with 2 DIMMs per channel. Support for memory based on the Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP) specification.2
PCI Express* 3.0 Interface: Supports up to 8 GT/s for fast access to peripheral devices and networking with up to 16 lanes configurable as 1×16, 2×8, or 1×8 and 2×4 depending on the motherboard design.
Chipset/Motherboard Compatibility: Compatible with all Intel® 300 Series chipsets with the latest BIOS and drivers.
Intel® UHD Graphics 630: Integrated 3D performance with support for Microsoft DirectX* 12 and Ultra HD 4K resolution display for immersive mainstream gaming. For Microsoft DirectX* 12 testing, the performance-tuned Intel graphics driver is expected to be available for download on Intel Download Center by the 8th generation Intel® Core™ processor family product introduction. The Intel® UHD Graphics 630 dynamic graphics frequency ranges up to 1200MHz.
Vibrant Media: Enhanced, built-in visual features deliver a seamless visual PC experience for rich Ultra HD 4K entertainment and HD gaming.
Intel® Quick Sync Video Technology: Media processing for incredibly fast conversion of video files for portable media players or online sharing including support for HEVC 10-bit (H.265) encode/decode to playback premium 4K Ultra HD content from selected service providers.
Intel® Power Optimizer and Processor C-States: Intel® Power Optimizer increases periods of silicon sleep state across the platform ingredients, including the processor, chipset, and third-party system components, to reduce power. Processor C-states (C8-C10) provide low idle power.
Intel® Virtualization Technology: Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
VMCS Shadowing: VMCS shadowing allows a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) running in a guest (nested virtualization) to access a shadow VMCS memory area using the normal VMRead/VMwrite instructions. This technology reduces overhead for a more natural and responsive user experience. It also allows users to take control of their personal and professional data and apps while being protected by game-changing security.
Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard: New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI)A set of instructions that can be used to accelerate a variety of encryption apps, including whole disk encryption, file storage encryption, conditional access of 4K UHD content, Internet security, and VoIP. Consumers benefit from protected internet and email content, plus fast, responsive disk encryption.
Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel®TSX): A set of instructions focused on enterprise-level multithreaded performance scaling, making parallel operations more efficient via improved control of software threads and locks. This offers performance benefits for enterprise-level big data analytics/business intelligence and visualization apps, which involve multi-user collaboration.
Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel® AVX2): A set of 256-bit instructions to deliver enhanced performance on floating point- and integer-intensive apps. Includes instructions for FMA (Fused Multiply-Add) which can deliver better performance on media and floating point computations, including face recognition, professional imaging, high-performance computing, consumer video and imaging, compression, and encryption.
Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX): A collection of instructions, APIs, libraries, and tools to help protect select code and data from disclosure or modification through the use of enclaves, which are protected areas of execution in memory.
Intel® BIOS Guard: An augmentation of existing chipset-based BIOS flash protection capabilities targeted to address the increasing malware threat to BIOS flash storage. It helps protect the BIOS flash from modification without platform manufacturer authorization, helps defend the platform against low-level DOS (denial of service) attacks, and restores BIOS to a known good state after an attack.
Hardware-based boot integrity protection that helps prevent unauthorized software and malware takeover of boot blocks critical to a system’s function, thus providing an added level of platform security based on hardware. Configurable boot types include:
Measured Boot – measures the initial boot block into the platform storage device such as a trusted platform module (TPM) or Intel® Platform Trust Technology.
Verified Boot – cryptographically verifies the platform initial boot block using the boot policy key.
Intel® OS Guard: A hardware-based security feature that protects the OS (operating system) kernel. OS Guard helps prevent the use of malicious data or attack code located in areas of memory marked as user mode pages from taking over or compromising the OS kernel. OS Guard is not application-specific and protects the kernel from any application.
Intel® Identity Protection Technology: Protect your one-time-password (OTP) credentials and public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates and add a layer of encrypted, second-factor authentication for online transactions.
Intel® Secure Key: Security hardware-based random number generator that can be used for generating high-quality keys for cryptographic (encryption and decryption) protocols. Provides quality entropy that is highly sought after in the cryptography world of added security.
