Intel, which unveiled the 8th Gen Intel Core processor on Monday, August 21, 2017, said the 8th Gen Intel Core processors are designed to deliver up to 40 percent increase in performance.
“We will start rolling out 8th Gen family today, beginning with a range of mobile processors designed specifically for sleek thin and light notebooks and 2 in 1s,” said Gregory Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel.
Intel said battery performance will ensure up to 10 hours of 4K UHD local video playback on a single charge.
