Rutronik adds boxsets for Intel Core i7+ and Core i5+

Distributor Rutronik stocks the Intel Core i7+ and Core i5+ boxed solutions, which combine Intel Core processors of the eighth generation with Intel Optane technology. This results, says Rutronik, in complete packages that bring a significant performance boost to both notebooks and desktop PCs.

The combination of powerful processors and Optane Cache modules accelerates systems with HDDs, points out Rutronik. It serves both in desktop PCs and notebooks as an alternative to the use of SSDs. The modules are already adjusted to each other and can be used immediately.

The eighth generation of Intel Core-i processors operates at 2.8GHz (i5-8400) or 3.2GHz (i7-8700). With Intel Turbo Boost technology it can speed up to 4GHz (i5) or 4.6GHz (i7). The processors have six cores, six (i5) and twelve (i7) threads and a new 4K decoder and encoder. The series supports dual-channel DDR4 and integrates an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU.

The SSD modules of the Optane series are based on the new 3D XPoint memory technology. Developed by Intel in collaboration with Micron, 3D XPoint is faster and more durable than Flash modules, but also has lower latencies. The Intel Smart Cache Technology, enables the Optane modules to serve as intelligent working memories. Intel has also combined the processors with Optane Memory M10 series with 16Gbyte storage space.

The boxed solutions are available on in three versions (i7+8700, i5+8500, i5+8400).
