Intel officially outs its 8th generation Coffee Lake Core processors today, and claims that the new chips will offer 40 percent speed boost compared to the 7th generation Core Kaby Lake chips.
The Coffee Lake processors consist of two new Core i7 chips, and two new i5 chips, both in the company’s U Series of laptop processors. The 8th generation chips’ architecture, both their CPU and their integrated GPU, is also similar to that of the 7th generation Kaby Lake, thus Intel calls the architecture of these chips “Kaby Lake refresh”.
