Call it a coincidence or what; Intel is all set to showcase its 8th generation processor with code name Coffee Lake on August 21. This is the same day when the great solar eclipse will cast its shadow across the US; while Intel will throw a major shade to AMD Ryzen; with its latest processor in hand, the all new Intel’s 8th generation Coffee Lake processor.
When Intel Coffee Lake Processor Will Be Launched?
On Tuesday, the company announced its plan to live to stream the launch of its next generation CPU, Coffee Lake on August 21; both on its Facebook page and the newsroom’s website at 8 am PT (11 am ET, 5 pm BT) or 1 am AEST.
What More Is To Release Alongside Coffee Lake Processor?
By the same token, the company lets the cat out of the bag about some key details of its mega plan of unveiling Intel’s 8th generation Coffee Lake processor. That includes the launch of some all new PC designs based on the next generation processor and relevant innards; as well the brand new standalone devices based on the new chipsets.
Little Do We Know About Coffee Lake Processor:
Moreover, this new Intel’s 8th generation Coffee Lake processor will use the revised version of Intel’s 14nm process technology. Let me tell you this will the fourth time the company is doing that unprecedentedly. Seemingly it is following the footprints of Kaby Lake architectures, Skylake and Broadwell. More to it, you will likely have to use a new motherboard with it.
But remarkably, the company claims that the 8th generation Core chip is 30 percent faster than the current Kaby Lake processors running some applications. This performance leap will be beyond anyone’s imagination; something that the company itself hasn’t seen in years.
What Do the Rumors Say?
Apart from that, little is out from the company’s side of Coffee Lake. Whereas, the churning web rumor mill continues to hit the airwaves with leaks and news about it. According to which, the company will ramp the core counts in a bid to combat the threats of Ryzen. Likewise, the rumors of six-core chips and quad-core Core i3 chips, finally cracking into Intel’s mainstream lineup, are giving more sense to that approach. If these rumors turn out to be true, perhaps it could better explain the company’s expectations for such a sky-scraping performance jump. It’s because ramping up the core count will definitely bear fruits in the performance boost.
Wait And Watch!
Predictably, the company is going to have quite busy and hectic weeks before the launch date. As there are a lot of things that have been lined-up in Intel‘s manufacturing cycle. So, keep following us for latest news and updates about this mega event to be held on August 21.
