[News] Intel 'Coffee Lake' 8th Gen Processors Launched, Here's All You Need To Know

Hello Mi Fans,

Intel announced its 8th-generation Core CPU lineup for desktop PCs last week, and now they have officially been launched. The lineup consists of six new models, two each in the Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 families. For the first time since Intel began using the Core branding and stratification, the company has increased the number of cores in each category. Core i3 CPUs now have four cores, rather than two cores with Hyper-Threading; Core i5 CPUs now have six cores instead of four, and Core i7 CPUs now have six cores plus Hyper-Threading, rather than four with Hyper-Threading prior to now.

On August 8, 2017, Intel announced that new 8th generation of processors would be revealed the following August 21. As Intel's previous changes in product generations coincided with new microarchitectures, it was unclear but generally expected that the 8th Core generation products would be based on the new Coffee Lake microarchitecture. However, when it was officially announced on August 21, 2017, Intel stated that the 8th generation would be based on multiple microarchitectures as
architectures now don't correspond to a single product generation anymore. The 8th Generation will comprise of parts using the previously announced Kaby Lake Refresh architecture as well as Coffee Lake which both use 14nm manufacturing processes, and the upcoming (after numerous delays) 10nm Cannonlake. Also our recently launched Mi Notebook Pro embodies i7-8550U which is the latest 8th generation Kaby Lake R mobile CPU.

The move could be seen as a response to AMD's Ryzen R3, R5 and R7 lineup which offer between four and eight cores, nearly all with multi-threading, and have proven to match or exceed the performance of Intel's 7th Generation parts at lower prices in multi-threaded aplications. Intel is claiming significant performance benefits because of its architecture, design and manufacturing capabilities. The top-end Core i7-8700K model is described as the "best ever" CPU for gaming, and will live alongside Intel's higher-end but older Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X based Core X-series processors.

The Core i7-8700K has base and boost speeds of 3.7GHz and 4.7GHz respectively, and the Core i7-8700 runs at 3.2Ghz to 4.6Ghz. The Core i5-8600K runs at 3.6Ghz to 4.3GHz, while the Core i5-8400 runs at 2.8GHz to 4GHz. The Core i3 models do not support Turbo Boost clock speed scaling, and so the Core i3-8350K runs at a constant 4GHz while the Core i3-8100 runs at 3.6GHz. Intel has not yet announced Indian pricing, but the US prices range from $117 to $359.

Despite having the same number of pins as the previous Kaby Lake and Skylake generation parts, Coffee Lake CPUs will not work in the same existing motherboards, primarily due to Intel reworking the power delivery and RAM connectivity requirements because of the higher core counts. Intel has also released the companion Z370 platform controller, and Asus and Gigabyte have already announced new motherboards based on it.
