Intel has announced a new line of processors for mobile devices belonging to WhiskeyLake and AmberLake families.
Initially, the corporation planned to include these processors to the ninth generation, but since the differences with the previous series are insignificant it was decided to expand the range of the eighth generation. The main features of new products include reduced energy consumption and productivity gains. The production of new products was carried out using a 14-nm process, which means that the presented novelties are an improved KabyLake family.
The line of U series (WhiskeyLake) was replenished with three processors: Core i7, using 4 cores and 8 threads, operating at a frequency from 1.8 GHz to 4.6 GHz; Core i5, similar to Core i7 having 4 cores and 8 threads, but operating at a lower frequency from 1.6 GHz to 4.1 GHz; as well as 2-core 4-thread Core i3 with a minimum clock frequency of 2.1 GHz, and 3.9 GHz in turbo mode. According to the developers the devices will provide a 10% increase in performance.
The Y-series (AmberLake), represented by three 2-core processors: Core i7, Core i5 and Core m3. All CPUs are made by 14 nm++ technology, have 4 threads, and L3 cache 4 MB. The older version operates at 1.5 GHz to 4.2 GHz, the Core-i5 operates at 1.3 GHz to 3.9 GHz, and the younger representative has a clock frequency of 1.1 GHz to 3.4 GHz. The chips of this series have the lowest power consumption. TDP is 5W.
Intel also announced a new chipset for laptops and tablets. The platform focused on improving the quality of network connection received a Wi-Fi 802.11 ac adapter, a dedicated 4-core sound processor and a second-generation USB 3.1. The wireless controller provides a faster connection and has a data transfer rate of up to 1.73 GB/s.
Tablets and laptops equipped with new devices will be presented this week.
