  • Intel's upcoming CPUs feature 10 nm technology

Created to meet the increasingly media-heavy needs of some PC users, Intel's new 8th-gen chips are claimed to be 40% faster than the previous, 7th-gen Kaby Lake processors introduced past year. Video editing is 14.7 times faster than a five-year-old PC.

For more information and updates regarding this new generation CPUs from Intel, stay tuned with us and get all such useful updates on a regular basis. Following the mobile U chips, we can expect the first desktop processors to debut sometime this fall. He added that the improved scalability of the new generation of chips will help support a broad range of new devices, with more than 145 notebook and 2-in-1 designs now in the pipeline.

HP has announced the imminent launch of a new range of ProBook 400 G5 business laptops which come equipped with Intel Kaby Lake processors and offer a variety of different specifications for users to choose from.

The 8th generation processors will also enable 4K video streaming in a larger number of on-demand services than PCs driven by Intel's 7th-gen offerings, expanding the list from Netflix, Sony ULTRA, FunBox UHD, and iQIYI to also include Amazon Prime Video and Vudu.

The mobile CPUs have a TDP of 15W and are the Intel Core i5-8250U, i5-8350U, i7-8550U and i5-8650U.

Keeping up with dramatic advances in a wide range of technologies from 4K content to virtual reality requires faster, more powerful processors at the heart of its devices, according to Intel.

The first chips in the 8th Gen processor family will be revealed via a livestream held by Gregory Bryant, senior vice president of the Client Computing Group at Intel.

Intel might be sticking to the familiar Kaby Lake architecture for the eight generation of its Core chips, but the its internal testing looks pretty promising as far as performance goes.

Intel will shed more light on the chips during a Facebook Live presentation in at 11AM ET today, though it likely won't have an opportunity to run through it all. That's largely thanks to the four cores packed into each chip, which is a first for Intel's U-series. The new name is largely cosmetic, though, given that the integrated GPU remains unchanged from the previous model - the improvements in performance are focused on the CPU instead.
