Soon it is 40 years since 8086 was introduced. The VideoChardz website writes that retailers have begun bringing up Intel i7-8086K in the range.
Turbo at 5 GHz
On June 8, 1978, Intel launched the iconic 8086 processor and it is the one honored with a new launch. According to reports, this jubilee process will actually be more powerful than the i7-8700K top processor, which has clock speeds of 3.7 GHz (base) and 4.7 GHz (turbo), respectively.
i7-8086K clocks at 4.0 GHz (base) and full 5.0 GHz in turbo, writes the site. Otherwise, the two processors share similar features as 12 threads, 12 MB L3 cache memory, LGA 1151-2 socket and a 14-nanometer process. The number of kernels is not confirmed, but is likely to be six.
At the price it appears that the newcomer will be somewhat more expensive than i7-8700K. Some online stores have set a price of $ 480, which in the US is $ 70 more than i7-8700K. In Norway, the latter processor starts at around NOK 3400.

Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Photos, Gmail, Calendar, Translator, Play, Maps and much, much more. We are all becoming increasingly dependent on filing services, whether it’s Apple’s infrastructure, Microsoft’s Azure Sky, or any of the many other service providers.
But no matter what you prefer, you probably have to relate to Google’s huge offer of cloud services. To have access to both images, documents, mail and everything else on all platforms, regardless of your personal preferences for brand loyalty, is undeniably quite practical.
The night to May 15th, the news was that Google is making changes to some of its cloud services – initially the actual cloud storage. Google Drive (Google Drive in English) changes name to Google One and resets subscription prices in the same slumber. And contrary to what is common when big technology companies make such a crunch, it’s not a question of raising prices. Google does the opposite here. Sky storage in Google One will be cheaper than before.
Google will also open in the future for sharing your storage with up to five family members. Google One users will also get upgraded accounts to romp in. So far, we only have US prices, but it would be astonishing to us if they differ a lot from those offered to us here in Norway.

When did you last try a new browser?
Most of us tend to choose a web browser and stick with it for years. It can be hard to break away from your comfort zone – especially when you’ve become used to its behavior – but trying a different browser can greatly improve your experience on the web.
Whether you’re looking for enhanced security, improved speed, or greater flexibility through customizable options and plugins, the best web browser can have a huge effect on your online life. Here, we’ve put together the biggest browsers (plus some that you may not be familiar with) to identify the browser that is the best. And, if you have a particular concern, then read on to see if there’s an alternative that might be better suited to your needs.
1. Firefox, fastest
2. Google Chrome, huge amount of system resources
3. Opera, An underrated browser that’s a great choice for slow connections
4. Microsoft Edge, fast on Windows 10, and unavailable for older operating systems
5. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Fast and efficient, but less expandable than Firefox and Chrome
6. Vivaldi, Build your own browser with unique docking and tab arranging system.
7. Tor Browser, More than just a browser – a whole suite of online security tools
This is my assement after installing them on my own computer, and tested on various heavy load websites. I’m using Firefox as my browser and its lightning fast on every page I visit. So I recommend Firefox.

Mozilla on Tuesday announced Facebook Container, a Firefox browser extension that is designed to segregate users’ activity on Facebook from their other Web activity, limiting Facebook’s ability to track them and gather personal data.
Mozilla recently has engaged in an aggressive strategy to counter Facebook data management policies that many see as intrusive.
The extension is the culmination of more than two years of research into developing a more private browsing experience, Mozilla said. However, the organization accelerated its development after the Cambridge Analytica data scandal came to light.
“We recently created the Facebook Container as a result of what we saw as a growing need and user demand for tools to help users control their online data,” said Jeff Griffiths, product lead, at Firefox.
I’m using this extension myself.
