Intel’s 8th-Gen ‘Coffee Lake’ Processors Promise 30% Speed Improvement
Intel has just confirmed that the launch of its 8th-gen core processors would be on Aug. 21 at 8 am PDT (11 am EDT, 4 pm BST). Named as "Coffee Lake," the new chipsets offer 30 percent faster speed.
Intel announced that the launch would be done by the company's senior vice president of the Client Computing Group, Gregory Bryant. It could also be witnessed via a live stream on the brand's newsroom or through its official Facebook page.
The giant technology company utilized the improved version of its 14nm process technology for the fourth time. The company bragged that it would perform 30 percent faster than the existing Kaby Lake chipsets.
As of press time, only a little information has been confirmed. Intel remains to keep the confidentiality of the details for the "Coffee Lake" chipsets.
The company also announced that the launch of their rival for AMD Ryzen processors would include some VR demos. This hints that the new processors would be beneficial for virtual reality purposes as well.
The official launch of the Coffee Lake chipsets would also include the latest "immersive experience" abilities that the brand is offering. The live stream would also feature several new system designs to support the new chipset. The company also teased that these could even be available this holiday season.
Coffee Lake chipsets would most likely require users to have a new motherboard to work efficiently, PCWorld has noted.
Meanwhile, Intel is also set to launch its more powerful chip by the end of the month. The high-end 12-core Core i9 chip is scheduled to debut on Aug. 28. This new processor is designed to compete with AMD's latest Threadripper CPUs, which was recently launched a week ago.
In addition, speculations say Intel is cooking up to launch a quad-core Core i3 and six-core processors. But before these theories get confirmed, mark your calendars and witness the live stream debut of the upcoming Coffee Lake chipsets on Monday, Aug. 21.
