Intel 9th generation Core i7 Coffee Lake processors have 8 physical cores plus 8 HyperThreading cores, allowing them to work on up to 16 threads simultaneously. Despite the Core i9 branding, these CPUs are compatible with mainstream Z370 and Z390 motherboards and don't require a more expensive X299 motherboard.
Please Note: Some Intel Z370 motherboards will support these processors. Please check the list of supported CPUs for your motherboard before purchasing one of these processors to ensure it is compatible
This category contains a mix of Intel 8th and 9th generation Core i7 Coffee Lake which have more cores and cache memory than the Core i5s, giving them much faster performance, especially in CPU intensive tasks such as graphics processing, video encoding and music mixing.
8th gen Core i7s have 6 physical cores plus HyperThreading while the more powerful 9th gen Core i7 processors have 8 physical cores.
Please Note: Despite using the same LGA1151 socket as 7th & 6th Gen. CPUs, ONLY Intel 300 Series Motherboards are compatible with these 8th and 9th Gen. 'Coffee Lake' CPUs.

These 8th Generation Intel Core i3 Coffee Lake quad-core processors are much faster than the cheaper Celeron and Pentium models thanks to having more cores and cache memory which enables them to process up to four threads at a time. Due to their higher frequency and larger cache Core i3's are much faster than Pentiums, and are the cheapest CPU we recommend for a more intensive tasks such as gaming and image editing.
Please Note: Despite using the same LGA1151 socket as 7th & 6th Gen. CPUs, ONLY Intel 300 Series Motherboards are compatible with these 8th Gen. 'Coffee Lake' CPUs.
AMD 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs feature improved performance over 1st gen CPUs and up to 32 cores with SMT technology and so can process up to 64 threads in parallel. This makes these ultra high-end processors ideal for heavily multi-threaded applications such as video encoding and 3D rendering or running lots of applications at once. These multi-core CPUs support ultra-fast quad-channel DDR4 memory and with 64 PCI-E lanes can support multiple graphics cards and other devices such as RAID controllers, sound cards. These high-end CPUs use the special Socket TR4 and require a motherboard based on the AMD X399 chipset.
Some 2nd gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs have a very high TDP. Please ensure that your motherboard and CPU cooler are adequate before installing the CPU.
