More Information

Intel Core i5-8500

Intel has launched the 8th generation of Intel Core processors, this time codenamed Coffee Lake. These processors have a very similar architecture to their highly successful predecessor, the Kaby Lake series. However, Intel has introduced various optimisations, creating the Intel Core i5-8500 processor that delivers a significant performance boost while maintaining minimal energy requirements.

Key Features of the Intel Core i5-8500 Processor

  • A hexa-core i5 processor with the Coffee Lake architecture
  • Features a high clock speed of up to 4.1GHz
  • Performance increases in order of tens of percentage points compared to the Kaby Lake range
  • Compatible exclusively with the new generation of Intel 3XX chipsets
  • Integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 graphics card
  • Box heatsink included

Improved Manufacturing Technology

The Coffee Lake architecture is once again based on a 14nm production process. What used to be a very demanding manufacturing process at first, Intel has mastered to a stunning degree of perfection, which means the Intel Core i5-8500 processor can offer a superb price/performance ratio. For the first time ever, the Core i5 series now features six processor cores. The higher number of cores is also accompanied by a higher working clock speed, which is up to 4GHz in turbo mode.

The Intel Core i5 Now Has 6 Cores

Access to data is greatly facilitated by a fast 9MB L3 cache that gives the processor cores enough time for instant response to all applications. The Intel Core i5-8500 processor is guaranteed to serve as a reliable building block for gaming PC systems. It’s virtually bursting with power, so you can even use it to dive into virtual reality or work on demanding video encoding.

Compatibility and Motherboards

The Intel Coffee Lake platform contains quite a few changes, so Intel has decided to take a rather unusual step. Although this processor uses the well-known socket 1151, it does require a new motherboard. Specifically, a motherboard with an Intel 3XX series chipset.
