In a recent press release, it has come to light that Intel will debut its 8th generation core processor on August 21, 2017. The debut event will be covered at 8 am PDT live at Facebook and at Newsroom. The 8th generation core processor family is also known as Coffee Lake.
The current 7th generation core processor lineup still shine fairly better, but Intel has plans already to showcase the successor to the world. The press release did not mention any technical details on 8th generation core processor otherwise known as Coffee Lake. However, it leaves us with a mere speculation that we may see PC builds, fired by Coffee Lake processor.
The 8th generation Coffee Lake processor is based on 14-nanometer chipset architecture and shares lots of other hardware similarities with its predecessor. Unlike previous Core-series, Intel this time focuses on more core counts at same power levels. This roughly means that we may see Core i7, Core i7 with six cores for desktop version, while Core i3 to feature 4 cores.
In a similar approach, Intel is focusing on more core counts with Intel Core i9 and X-series. The addition of more core count is a convenient advantage as it boosts multi-tasking.
