At Computex this year, Intel introduced the 8th Generation Intel Core processors that are replacing the 7th Generation Intel Core Processors (“Kaby Lake”). But, guess what is the most interesting thing about these Intel’s 8th generation CPUs, as they are much more powerful than we expected.
Intel’s 8th Gen CPUs Are More Powerful Than We Thought
At Computex this year, Intel introduced the 8th Generation Intel Core processors that are replacing the 7th Generation Intel Core Processors (“Kaby Lake”), which is being much more powerful than expected.
Intel’s new 8-generation U-Series processors are not the “Coffee Lake” architecture that Intel has been preparing. Although they are 8th Generation and show great improvements in performance, these new processors use an improved version of the “Kaby Lake” architecture (present in Intel 7th Generation Processors).
The New Functions
According to the data presented, the new generation of processors provides a 40% higher performance in terms of computing power, compared to 7th Generation Intel Core processors, something that surprised the public positively.
In real terms, this means we will be able to watch ten hours of video streaming in 4K. In addition, tasks like photo editing can be up to 48% faster now.
But the great news does not stop here. One of the new features of these processors has been surprising. The new Turbo Boost technology from Intel (version 2.0) allows you to increase the processor frequency according to the task required to be performed even more compared to the previous Generation, and still be more efficient.
The new processors introduced last Monday are part of the U-series for handheld and hybrid computers. With 4 cores and 8 threads, Intel was able to increase the maximum clock speed to 4.2 GHz on the i7-8650U and 3.4 GHz on the i5-8250U; speeds in my opinion and that will be more than enough for most users.
Undoubtedly, these new Intel processors have proven to be incredibly capable and promise great computing power. Right now it’s in the hands of big brands. Hopefully, the tech giants like Apple, Microsoft and other hardware manufacturers will include these new processors in their next computers or laptops.
