This and a entrance weeks will be filled with lots of Intel Coffee Lake leaks and rumors. The latest one comes true from a Thailand formed YouTuber who lonesome a launch eventuality that surrounded Acer’s latest Nitro array notebook, featuring a new Coffee Lake U array processor.

Intel Will Offer Twice As Many Cores As Previous Generation Core U-Series Processors With Coffee Lake Notebook Family

The chip that is famous as Intel Core i7-8550U is partial of a 8th Generation Coffee Lake cover lineup. The Intel Coffee Lake-U array are famous to launch alongside a desktop tools though this one is an engaging product. We know that Intel is augmenting a core count opposite their whole lineup on a desktop front and we can design a same from cover parts. The latest chip was speckled inside a Acer Nitro 5 array cover that to be clear, hasn’t launched yet.

The specifications of a Intel Core i7-8550U embody 4 cores and 8 threads. Comparing to prior generations, a Core i7-7660U comes with 2 cores and 4 threads. That’s separate of what a new 8th era Core i7 gets. This means we are also looking during 8 MB of L3 cache that is a customary for Intel quad cores with multi-threading enabled. The chip was clocked during 1.80 GHz that is a bottom magnitude though we can design aloft speeds with turbo boost. Now a engaging thing is that this chip will have a 15W TDP so to stay underneath that limit, it compensates for a time speeds. But it still provides adequate headroom to broach aloft clocks with boost frequencies in workloads when it is needed.

This also provides us minute information of what we can design from other tools in a U Series lineup. The Intel Core i5 U-Series might embody quad cores but multi-threading and 6 MB of L3 cache while a Intel Core i3 U-Series might hang with a stream 2 core, 4 thread pattern or get during slightest 4 cores (no Multi-Threading) and practiced clocks for reduce TDPs.
