Whiskey Lake about 15W TDPprocessorHas been exposed for a long time,IntelIn April this year, it was first mentioned that the low-power U series processor upgraded the Whiskey Lake architecture during the year. In June, the Taipei Computer Show released some new information. It will use the 14nm++ process and still belong to the eighth generation.coreSeries, but performance will have a double-digit increase.
The Whiskey Lake processor has had multiple exposures before, and it is not far from the official release. From AnanadtechwebsiteAccording to the news, HP has accidentally exposed the detailed names and specifications of the three Whiskey Lake processors on the promotional page of the Pavilion x360 notebook, and then ASUS, Synnex and other companies have confirmed the specifications of the Whiskey Lake processor from different angles. The AT website is summarized as follows:
The specifications for the three Whiskey Lake processors are as follows:
Compared with the corresponding Kaby Lake Refresh processor, the basic frequency of the Whiskey Lake processor has not changed much, and the number of cores and threads has not increased, but the acceleration frequency has been greatly increased, such as the Core i7-8550U processor acceleration frequency of 4.0GHz, Core The i7-8565U accelerates to 4.6GHz and increases 600Hz. The other two processors also have 500 and 700MHz frequency boosts.
Combined with the performance of the previously exposed Core i7-8565U processor, Intel said that the performance double-digit performance is really possible. The acceleration frequency increase of 500-700MHz means that the frequency increase is 10-15%, while the previous Core i7- The 8565U's Geekbench 4 test also confirmed a 15% improvement in CPU performance.
