Intel is rolling out its new 8th Gen Intel Core processors, which are designed specifically for sleek thin and light notebooks and 2-in-1s.
This new mobile family sets the bar for outstanding performance, including a boost of up to 40 percent gen over gen, a 2x boost in comparison with a 5-year old PC. This is because of the new Quad-core configuration, power-efficient micro-architecture, advanced process technology and a wide range of silicon optimizations. These improvements will also allow for richer, more immersive viewing experience.
The best part is, these improvements wouldn't affect the battery life of a device. In fact, you will be able to get up to 10 hours of 4K UHD local video playback on a single charge. A few other examples of the profound impact this performance leap include; Editing photos or creating a slide show will be 48 percent faster on 8th Gen than devices powered by its predecessor.
Moreover, editing video footage is now up to 14.7x faster, so rendering what used to take 45 minutes on a 5-year-old PC, will take only three minutes now. In addition to this, it's easier than ever to enjoy your favorite shows in 4K UHD, including new content coming soon from Amazon Prime Video and Vudu, as well as everything already available from Netflix, Sony Pictures ULTRA and iQiyi.
Lastly, you will be able 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 experience.
The first wave of 8th Gen Intel Core processor-powered devices featuring i5/i7 processors will come to market beginning in September, and there will be more than 145 designs to choose from.
8th Gen Intel Core processors will continue to roll out through the coming months, with the first desktop processors coming in the fall, followed by processors for enterprise customers and a broad range of other options purpose-built for different segments. The 8th Gen family will even include some of Intel's 10nm products.
