Intel says its new processors will speed up web browsing”

Intel has today launched its 8th generation of U-Series Core Processors that could find their way into Apple's future MacBooks.

The 8th generation of Intel Core Processors (a Kaby Lake refresh) for mobile devices bring a handful of improvements over the 7th generation (Kaby Lake v. 1) processors found in Apple's newest notebooks, like the MacBook Pro. Aside from the 40 percent performance boost claim, Intel also claims that the new chips provide double the performance over a five-year old machine.

One of the new features that helps provide the above benefits is Intel's new Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 which "Dynamically increases the processor's frequency, as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits". Walker said that Intel is really at a transition stage in terms of the process architecture adopted for its CPU products, adding that while the 14nm process has already matured, Intel will come out with more products using 10nm process in 2018 to allow more choices for customers. "The best part? We've been able to do all of this without compromising battery life".

Leading notebook vendors, such as Taiwan's Asustek Computer and Acer, and many other global brands, will roll out their new 2-in-1 and ultra-thin notebook models utilizing Intel's eighth-generation Coffee Lake mobile CPUs starting September, to grab a larger market pie in the coming peak season, according to industry sources.

Users will also be able to edit photo, video and stream video more quickly with the new processors in place.

The first laptops containing the new chips will start to appear in September, the company confirmed.
