Powering Your Greatest Contribution

New 8th Gen Intel® Core™ U-Series and Y-Series processors.

The New 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processor family is building on a strong foundation of leadership products with new additions that enable features that powers your greatest contribution. Beyond the CPU performance that customers have come to expect, we are raising the bar on connectivity delivering Gigabit Wi-Fi for faster sharing, streaming and downloads1. Combined with our great performance, innovative form factors, and better connectivity, new systems provide a simple, convenient and personal experience with more immersive entertainment.

Introduction
With the addition of three new SKUs, we are extending the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ U-series processor line-up. 8th Gen has already delivered outstanding experiences across three main areas: exceptional performance, immersive entertainment and simple convenience. The new U-series SKU (formerly codenamed Whiskey Lake) extends these benefits and is optimized for connectivity.

Performance Leadership
The new U-series processors build upon a great foundation already demonstrated by the initial U-series products. We deliver 2x better system overall performance versus a 5 year old PC2, empowering people to focus, create, and connect like never before. For the first time in U-series, the Intel® Core™ i7 8565U processor enables the new Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) feature3 providing additional single core performance. Along with increased multicore turbo frequencies and hyper threading, it has the highest Sysmark* 2014SE score of any U-series.

More Connected Than Ever
Our latest PCH delivers increased capabilities over previous U-series products. The number of PCIe* lanes increases from 12 to 16, the platform now supports twice the speed with USB3.1 Gen 2 (previously USB3.0) and we have added Integrated Intel® Wireless-AC.
Systems with Intel® Wireless-AC 9560 [802.11AC 160MHz] will see up to 12x faster1 speeds compared to a 5YO PC with a 1x1 802.11B/G/N. This will allow you to download content, like movies from your favorite content provider faster, to take with you on the go. While out and about in the world, you’re capturing photos and video – when you get home, with Gigabit Wi-Fi you’ll be able to back those files up to your network attached storage faster.
Endless possibilities: Thunderbolt™ 3 offers exciting potential for work with multi-stream HD and 4K video. Its single-cable docks with charging, external graphics, super-fast storage and built-in networking open up fresh possibilities for everything you do.

Interactions with the PC are also becoming more intelligent whether at home or on a trip. The quadcore audio DSP in our new PCH provides improved voice services support. While traveling, you can bring your Amazon Alexa* experience from home with you – before you go to bed, you can make sure the lights are off at home, and even have Alexa play your favorite music. When you are at home, Cortana* can help you with your personal or work schedule and search your PC for the information that you need.

Battery Life
By working with the PC ecosystem to deliver uncompromised performance in a power efficient platform, Intel enables more systems with better performance and longer battery life. There will be many systems with over 10 hours of battery life and pushing over 16 hours4! You can cut the power cord and leave your charger at home during a full day of work or play.

The latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ U-series processor, formerly codenamed Whiskey Lake, has the following feature advancements relative to its predecessor released in Q3’2017 formerly codenamed Kaby Lake-R.
