Intel, world’s major semiconductor chip processor company has decided to bring quad-core processor to its 8th generation core processor specially designed for small palmtops, laptops, and ultrabooks. This introduction of quad-core will tremendously improve the performance of the system.
Its previous generation Kaby Lake Chips had a lot of drawbacks and decreased the performance of the system. The entire series of Intel core processors had eight threads and four cores in all. Its latest core processor will roll out within a very short time span.
The 8th generation core processor will be an entire clubbed package of the Kaby Lake architecture including cannon lake chips of 10 nm, coffee lake, and 14++ technologies. In short, the chip will contain two different processor i5 and i7 with three-chip architectures all of them under one package.
The two main advantages this new 8th generation Intel core processor will have are:
First, it will improve the performance of the CPU system by around 40 percent.
Secondly, the performance improvement will be almost double as that of Intel’s previous versions.
In addition, with the above-mentioned advantages, users will get the benefit of other services such as three-dimensional view, virtual reality, 4K video resolution along with other different pioneering technologies. The company will also make fruitful changes in the HD 620 graphics constructed over the last few core processors of Intel.
The rebuild design will be more enhancing. Though the core CPU processor design will change, the company will retain its previous GPU model. The company has concentrated more on CPU design rather than GPU.
Intel’s competing company AMD had still not made an official announcement regarding its ever-waited plans of ‘Raven Ridge’ chips. This chip had only four threads and four cores
Though rival AMD hasn’t disclosed its plans for its mobile “Raven Ridge” chips, AMD’s low-power Ryzen 3 chips use four cores and (only) four threads. Applying more cores to multithreaded applications has been one-way AMD claims to have a performance advantage.
