Intel 8th generation Coffee Lake processors are here and promise a 40% performance bump over their predecessors
When it comes to new 8th Generation Core U-series CPUs, Intel has chose to launch four Core i7 and Core i5 SKUs, offering up to 40 percent performance compared to the 7th Generation Core U-series chips. With the promise to provide 40 percent more speed, the latest processor from Intel has come with the revised version of 7th generation Kaby Lake chips.
The company's new 8th-gen chips are the first quad-core "U-Series" processors, which are intended for notebook and ultrabook devices. Its new chips aim to keep demand in one of those segments humming along.
Some Facebook users commented on the company's page that they were hoping for a more than 5% improvement from the 8th generation Intel Core chips, so they will probably be glad to hear this.
The U-series laptop processors will be followed by 8th-generation Intel chips aimed at desktop PCs, workstations and enthusiast notebooks from the fall.
Despite having more power under the hood, Intel says the new CPUs won't be a step backward when it comes to battery life. As you'll see from the information revealed to the press, it seems like AMD Ryzen's democratising effect on processor performance has pushed Intel to do the unthinkable. The 8th Gen family will also include some of Intel's first 10nm products in the future. Although they are based on the Kaby Lake architecture rather than the new, expected Coffee Lake, they still offer dramatically increased performance on most applications. All are 14nm FiNFET, with the flagship being the Core i7-8650U with a 1.9 GHz base clock, 4.2 GHz turbo and 8MP L3 cache. Nevertheless, some were surprised to see clock rate nerfed in comparison with the previous iteration of these mobe chips; the slowest of the old U-Series i5s clocked in at 2.2GHz, while the slowest of the i7-Us managed a respectable 2.4GHz. In particular, the new Core i5 processor is said to give "up to" (there's that phrase again) double productivity performance and a 1.9x boost in web performance. When the chips start hitting the market mid-next month here will be around 145 different designs to start with, and the company will be further muddying up the waters with different, non-Kaby Lake architectures. Speaking accurately the 8 generation processors are basically refreshed versions of its 7 generation processors-how?
