Despite the initial leaks of Intel's plan to launch its 8th-gen Core "Coffee Lake" CPUs, the chip maker has been characteristically stoic about its roadmap plan to the public. Today, the company has officially launched its 8th-generation Intel Core mobile processors based on a Kaby Lake Refresh.
Intel has accidentally leaked details of its upcoming Kaby Lake desktop CPUs, and their accompanying chipsets. The chipmaker was reaching out to OEMs when the leaks occurred, more details after the jump.
Kaby Lake is the first "optimized" product from Intel to officially debut on its new process-architecture-optimization model. This means a modest 10 per cent performance bump, but more significant gains in video encoding and decoding and power consumption.
Keen eyes at the Motley Fool have picked up on a pertinent point in Intel’s annual financial report to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The chip manufacturer expects to stretch its current and next generation fabrication processes beyond its familiar tick-tock cycle.
According to a The Motley Fool report, Intel is planning to name its third, 10nm processor series as Tigerlake. Read more about the chip maker’s plans with its move to fabricate transistors at this lower scale.
