Intel Core Ultra i7 Chips Hit Blazing 5GHz+ Speeds for single-core speeds

Intel is cranking things with their next-gen Intel Core Ultra CPU, pushing the pedal to the metal for blistering performance. According to leaked information, the upcoming Ultra i7 model has breached the 5GHz barrier for single-core speeds – an insane achievement for a CPU chip.

Even more impressive, the flagship Ultra i9 chip vaults past 5GHz, leaving virtually all competitors in the dust.

Intel the tech giant announced that it is upgrading its Core brand to include two new product lines (Intel Gives Core Brand an Upgrade: Meet Intel Core Ultra i9, i7, and i5): the Intel Core i9, i7, and i5 Ultra processors and the mainstream Intel Core processors. This naming convention change is in line with the company’s plans to streamline its processor branding.

Intel is flexing some serious silicon muscle that could leave AMD’s Ryzen chips chomping at the bit. The leaked specs reveal the Ultra chips will pack up to 6 high-performance cores and 8 efficiency cores, you can think of it like having a Formula 1 track racer and a Prius in one engine.

The integrated graphics are no slouch either, with up to 8 next-gen Xe cores that Intel boasts represent a “new leap” in low-power graphics. Expect the visuals to be buttery smooth for gaming and content creation on the go.

Rumor has it these souped-up powerhouses could debut as early as October, if not at CES early next year. One thing’s for sure – they aren’t kidding around with the Ultra moniker.

When it comes to raw clock speeds, the Core Ultra series looks ready to leave competing mobile silicon in the dust. We can’t wait to see these overclocked monsters stretch their legs and give us a glimpse of the future for ultra-portable computing.
