    Yes, you read that right, an 8086 processor. So then, Intel might be planning a special processor to be released with the 40th anniversary of the 8086 processor?...

    Jokes on you. Its going to be an actual 8086 CPU. Cant sue for false advertising.

    Edit: In all seriousness Im guessing this is going to be something like a Celeron with missing cache but high clocks?

    I really hope this is real (at least as the product name). They could sell this on June 8th, the 40th anniversary of the original.

    Wait: Z370? A release without a new chipset?!?!? This must be FAKE NEWS!

    I do not think intel would sell singe cache-less CPU within i7 line. Today, main difference between i[357], Pentium is cache configuration. And then core count.

    Hard to believe the 8086 was released on my birthday. That thing's ancient.

    It's for LGA 1151-2. Would work not only with Z390, but also with Z370, H370 and B360 motherboards.

    It will have to have a new motherboard with an extra socket for adding a Math Co-Processor.

    And in 200 Years we will celebrate the 80286

    it was a Titan xp and not a 1080TI
    and it was sold 100Euro less than a Titan xp (exept the 1st serie that were at the same price)

    If it is as good as G3258 (best OC and price/perf ratio) then i might get one instead of waiting Ryzen to be in stock here...

    40 years, and modern CPUs still need to be compatible to that CPU. Isn't that weird?

    Over a hundred years using basically the same engine design, not weird.. Just another failure thanks to Capitalism.

    I'm not talking about design. All CPUs use the same design. I mean the instruction set ("platform".) There's ARM CPUs which are not compatible to 8086. PowerPC, etc. But on PC (and Mac, but not for long*) we're still compatible with that 40 year old thing.

    Technically its compatible, but in practice its done using emulation (ie. "Virtual 8086 mode"). The x86 instruction set has evolved quite a bit since those days.
    On that note, the basic ARM6 instruction set is also over 25 years old now, with its predecessors going back almost as far as the 8086.

    Virtual 8086 mode is something different. It's for executing real mode applications in protected mode.

    Modern CPUs still start in real mode, not in protected mode. That is, they start in non-virtual 8086 mode. It's still supported (and needed, in fact.) It's why you can run DOS. Or why the BIOS still works. Both need an 8086-compatible CPU that is not running in protected mode. It needs to run in 16-bit real mode.

    i 100% agree...
    but on other hand we live in a world who like normalisation... :(

    Yes but ARM is versatile in its own architecture (and this is why smartphone love ARM)... Archimede to Raspberry... what a road !!! :)

    Are those cherry picked 8700K CPUs?
