Intel launches 8th-gen i5/i7 processors, could bring big performance to MacBooks

Intel Announces Forthcoming Chip Lineup 'Ice Lake' Built on 10nm+ Process

Intel 8th generation Coffee Lake processors are here and promise a 40% performance bump over their predecessors

SemiAccurate thinks doubling the core counts is a good thing but the rest is, well, a mild refresh.

The first batch of the company's eighth generation chips, nicknamed "Kaby Lake R", will power upcoming laptops launching this year and next. The company recently released its new MacBook Pros running on Intel's seventh generation Kaby Lake chips in June, and the MacBook series runs on a different series of Intel chips called the Y-series. In each case, new chips - whether they were die shrinks or new architectures - were assigned a new product number.

Next up are 2 new i5 CPUs that integrate 6 cores and 6 threads.

Finnish court identifies knife attack suspect
Police shot him in the leg and he is in hospital, but he is expected to appear in court via a video link on Tuesday. The attack occurred just after 4pm on Friday, with police shooting the knife-wielding suspect minutes later.

As you may recall, Intel finally acknowledged that it was no longer able to maintain its "tick-tock" development schedule-in which major chipset releases ("ticks") were interspersed with minor updates ("tocks")-in early 2016.

"We believe that the investment community underestimates to growth potential of Intel's CCG business, and that this could be a source of ongoing upside to investor expectations".

Whether you're browsing the web, editing photos or videos, juggling documents and spreadsheets, or consuming media, the 8th-gen chips are created to make everything quicker. These two powerful Core processors will feature the Industry leading 10 nm technology. So what, exactly, is new about these chips? Furthermore, the better manufacturing process also adds to the performance of the chips.

Aid agencies warn of humanitarian crisis in flood hit South Asia
Over four hundred fifty people died in the Indian states of Assam, Bihar, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur and other areas. The regional crisis has affected 16 million people and there are growing concerns about food shortages and disease.

For partners, that performance boost is essential for driving sales to small businesses, according to Intel Channel Chief Todd Garrigues. The i7-8700K will have a 95 W TDP and it will be clocked at 3.8 GHz by default, but the turbo clocks have not been revealed.

On the graphics front all four are GT2 models meaning 1 shader cluster with nothing disabled. The slowest in the lineup, the 8250U, has a base clock of 1.6 GHz going up to 3.4 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0. This represents a 100-150MHz bump over the 7th Gen part, and again it is likely attributable to process tech more than anything else. "That translates into PCs delivering twice the performance of desktops and laptops manufactured just five years ago". All of these GPUs are still Gen9 so they are probably quite comparable to Kaby and Sandy in every way. Speaking accurately the 8 generation processors are basically refreshed versions of its 7 generation processors-how? We can only be sure that technology has a very bright future.

All of this processors have 4 cores, and 8 threads.
