Intel's New 8th Gen Core Processors Offer 40 Percent Performance Boost

Intel Announces Forthcoming Chip Lineup 'Ice Lake' Built on 10nm+ Process
Intel said its new processors are going to deliver the biggest bump in performance that personal computer users have experienced in years. That's largely thanks to the four cores packed into each chip, which is a first for Intel's U-series. There will be four initial parts, two Core i7 and two Core i5, and while the architecture may be the same base Kaby Lake design, Intel is doing something new. Also on the way are processors for enterprise, workstation and high-end desktop computers.
The first products to arrive will be Core i5 and Core i7 processors in the U-Series rated at 15 watts, which will be targeted at thin and light notebooks and 2-in-1 convertibles in the consumer and business sectors. The i3-8350K model will be clocked at 4.0 GHz with a 95 W TDP, while the i3-8100 model will be clocked at 3.8 GHz with a 65 W TDP. The previous generation i7-7660U has a base clockspeed of 2.5GHz and a Turbo clock of 4.0GHz, while the new i7-8650U has a 1.9GHz base clock and 4.2GHz max Turbo frequency. It means that it is a faster way for CPU to go from idle to an active state.
Intel Corp.is introducing what it calls the eighth generation of its Core processors today, claiming a 40 percent performance improvement over previous versions, but reviewers are saying the new chips are mainly heated-up versions of their predecessors. Of that, 25 percent is claimed to be a result of the increased core count. Bear in mind that these processors are still built with the 14nm++ technology seen in the 7th generation Kaby Lake platform, so it's not like Intel couldn't have added more cores sooner. Well, we won't be able to tell from branding alone. And although Intel won't confirm any details on its desktop chips yet, some have speculated that those will also get two extra cores. But, there are few worse feelings in tech than shelling out for a new device, only to see it surpassed mere months later.
According to the officials, Intel's new CPUs will be 40% faster than the current CPUs in the market.
Taylor Swift is definitely up to something
For fans the most unconditional, the release of the first single of his next album would seem the most plausible explanation. As most of you already know, Taylor Swift recently became a blank space on social media.
