Earlier in the year it was revealed that quad core processors will soon make its appearance by end of this year. We did not have much details about the processors at that time, but now there are reports that Intel’s eight generation “Coffee Lake” processors will be making its appearance later this year.
Details leaked online confirm that the new Core i5-8250U and Core i7-8550U for Ultrabooks will be coming with the 15W Quad core processors. Up until now we have seen only Ultra Low Voltage processors were found in the devices like the Surface Pro.
This would mean that devices like the Dell XPS 13 would be moving from dual core to quad core and Microsoft might also plan for a quad core Surface Device. As far as core are concerned the single core benchmark has been set around 4000 on similar lines to Intel’s Kaby Lake chips.
The first batch of notebooks sporting Intel’s 8th generation CPUs include the Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKBR, the HP Pro Book 440 G5, Asus Zen Book UX340UAR and Spectre x360, Acer Swift 3 and Dell XPS 13 SKUs.
