Intel today unveiled the new 8th Generation Intel Core processor family, fuelling the ecosystem to deliver innovative form factors, connectivity, and performance to end-users.
The 8th Generation Intel Core processors deliver a more than 40 percent boost in performance compared to 7th Gen, and enables users to do more of what they love – and do it better, faster, and easier.
A few other examples of the profound impact this performance leap will have:
- Editing photos or creating a slideshow? That’s up to 48 percent faster on 8th Gen vs. devices powered by the processor Intel released last year.
- Editing video footage is now up to 14.7x faster, so rendering what used to take 45 minutes on a 5-year-old PC, now takes just three minutes.
- It’s easier than ever to enjoy your favourite shows in 4K UHD, including new high-definition content coming soon on major video streaming platforms.
- With the 8th Gen processors, it’s never been a better time for users to try out new advancements like Windows Mixed Reality or go even more immersive with Thunderbolt™ 3 external graphics (up to 4K) for enhanced gaming and VR.
The first wave of 8th Gen Intel Core processor-powered devices featuring i5/i7 processors will come to markets around the world beginning in September.
