Intel announces 8th generation Intel Core processors

The 8th Generation Intel Core processors deliver a more than 40 percent boost in performance compared to 7th Gen, and enables users to do more of what they love – and do it better, faster, and easier.


A few other examples of the profound impact this performance leap will have:

Editing photos or creating a slideshow? That’s up to 48 percent faster on 8th Gen vs. devices powered by the processor Intel released last year.

Editing video footage is now up to 14.7x faster, so rendering what used to take 45 minutes on a 5-year-old PC, now takes just three minutes.

It’s easier than ever to enjoy your favourite shows in 4K UHD, including new high-definition content coming soon on major video streaming platforms.

With the 8th Gen processors, it’s never been a better time for users to try out new advancements like Windows Mixed Reality or go even more immersive with Thunderbolt™ 3 external graphics (up to 4K) for enhanced gaming and VR.

The first wave of 8th Gen Intel Core processor-powered devices featuring i5/i7 processors will come to markets around the world beginning in September.

U-series processors are meant for thin and light laptops, 2 in 1 computers, convertibles and minis. They will be found in leading brands notebooks.
