Intel Announcing 8th-Gen Core Processors This Month
We'll get more news about Intel's 8th-generation CPUs, code-named "Coffee Lake," later this month.
In a pre-announcemnt of sorts, Intel said it will host a livestream on Facebook on August 21 (coincidentally, the same day as the solar eclipse) at 11 a.m. ET.
The Coffee Lake CPUs will be a refinement of its predecessor, Kaby Lake, and maintain a 14nm size. (Skylake, Kaby Lake's predecessor, also measured 14nm).
Other than that, little is known about the upcoming 8th-gen chips, though Intel previously announced that it will have a 30 percent performance improvement over Kaby Lake. Rumors suggest that Intel will pack more power in lower-end chips and put emphasis on having more threads in response to AMD's newly released Ryzen processors, but we'll have to wait until August 21 to find out.
