A new day is here, which means it's time for a new Intel CPU launch. This time it's part of the 8th Generation Core Series, as Coffee Lake officially arrives in the CPU world. We have the Core i7 8700K and Core i5 8400 launches today, but pretty much the entire lineup will be available for you to check out, based on what you need and your budget.

Intel is pulling out the big guns, as it has finally taken its Core Series all the way up to the Core i9 nomenclature. These new processors offer a massive amount of cores, all the way up to 18, and can provide a massive boost to your build. If you want to spend the high cost to jump in, that is. The Core i9 7980XE and 7960X are the two new processors launching today, with the former offering 18 cores and 36 threads, and the latter only at 16 cores and 32 threads. Both are an insane amount of processing potential, and if you want that amount of cores, they can be yours. We have a selection of reviews of these two new processors to check out, so hit them up below to see what Intel has delivered.

The final week of August has arrived, with several items along the way. We have a review of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX case, providing a budget-friendly price with features normally found on higher end models. The AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G video card is put to the test to show what it can do for your games. If you want to keep your CPU cool, perhaps the Koolance CPU-390CI water block, with its redesigned top cap and base plate, is perfect for your loop. For those wanting better control of their games, the SteelSeries Sensei 310 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse offers plenty of precision and a comfortable fit regardless of your dominant hand. We wrap up with a look at the best Android smartphone battery life to see just how to get the most accurate picture.
