Intel Announces New 8th Gen U/Y CPUs – Introduces Gigabit WiFi And Improved Efficiency

Intel has definitely been rocked by the competition ever since AMD made its comeback with its Ryzen series of CPUs. In an effort to combat the competition, Intel released the Coffee Lake lineup of CPUs that not only brought slight improvements but also finally increased the core count on Intel’s lackluster four cores.

Since then, Intel has seen some immense support from a ton of gamers. However, AMD’s recent moves on making its way onto notebooks has also shook Intel a bit. With Ryzen CPUs making their way into notebooks, it was time Intel started pushing these new CPUs to light computing devices.

Today, the folks over at Intel proudly announced three new CPUs aimed at power efficiency for lightweight computing devices, namely, the Core i7-8565U, i5-8265U and i3-8145U. All three of these CPUs aim to bring general improvements across the board and are aiming to bring as much efficiency while improving performance across the board compared to their predecessors.

Intel claims that with the new Core i7-8565U, i5-8265U and i3-8145U, laptops and 2 in 1s would be able to last up to 16 hours on a single charge and could be extended even further if OEMs decide to tweak their devices. These new CPUs also support Dolby’s HDR standards to enable some excellent media experiences across the board when paired with a decent display.

Coming over to the Y series of CPUs, Intel has announced three CPUs into the Y series, namely, the i7-8500Y, i5-8200Y and m3-8100Y. All three of these CPUs aim to push the eSIM trend forward as well as carry the same Gigabit WiFi improvements we’ve seen from the U series.
