GIGABYTE Z370 Motherboards Support The Intel® Core™ i7 8086K Anniversary Edition CPU GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has announced that GIGABYTE and AORUS Z370 motherboards fully support the Intel® Core™ i7 8086K Anniversary Edition CPUs to commemorate 40 years of processor evolution and leadership in technology. Originally released on June 8th, 1978, Intel‘s classic 16-bit 8086 processor was the first ever built on x86 architecture. With its 3 micron fabrication process, 5MHz operating speed, and 1MB memory, it set multiple industry standards at the time. To pay tribute to this classic processor, Intel has introduced a special Intel® Core™ i7 8086K anniversary edition CPU as part of the 8th Gen. Core family. Using the same architecture as the latest generation processors, the anniversary edition CPU has evolved significantly from the original processor as it comes with 6 cores, 12 threads and supports single core Turbo Boost to 5GHz. The evolution in processor technology is especially impressive when considering the exponential increase in speed from the 8086’s 5MHz to the i7 8086K’s 5GHz. GIGABYTE has optimized its Z370 motherboards and with Ultra Durable Technology, the boards fully support Intel’s newest anniversary edition CPU, giving users the best option to pair with this historic part number CPU. “Since its establishment, GIGABYTE has developed a dynamic relationship with Intel to produce the very best in what PC technology has to offer.” Jackson Hsu, Deputy Director of the GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development Division, stated. “GIGABYTE was established after the initial release of the 8086 processor so now we’re taking the lead in providing consumers with support for the high-end performing Intel® Core™ i7 8086K processor. GIGABYTE and AORUS Z370 Motherboards together with this processor are sure to deliver the best user experience.” GIGABYTE would like to invite users to demo the Core™ i7 8086K system at both the GIGABYTE VIP suite at Taipei 101 and Taipei World Trade Center exhibition at Computex 2018. GIGABYTE AORUS Z370 motherboards with Ultra Durable Technology provide optimal support and bring out the benefits of Intel® Core™ i7 8086K processors.
