The Latest Intel Processors Start Introduced with Extraordinary Toughness

Intel’s laptop processor family is growing in number with the arrival of six new CPU models. Three of the Whiskey Lake U-series chip families and three others from the Amber Lake Y-Series family.

Both Amber Lake and Whiskey Lake use the same Kaby Lake architecture base as before, with an additional number of optimizations.

Both are made with a 14nm fabrication process and are intended to fill the gap between the previous generation and the next generation that is predicted to use the 10nm process (Cannon Lake).

Whiskey Lake U-Series

In the Whiskey Lake family, the top is occupied by the Core i7-8565U with 4 cores / 8 threads, 4.6 GHz / 4.6 GHz turbo base frequency, and 8 MB L3 cache.

The second model is Core i5-8265U with 4 cores / 8 threads, base frequency 1.6 GHz / turbo 3.9 GHz, and L3 cache 6 MB. Finally, there is a Core i3-8145U with 2 cores / 4 threads, a base frequency of 2.1 GHz / 3.9 GHz, and an L3 cache of 4 MB.

All three processors use the integrated Intel UHD 620 GPU and have the support of RAM DDR4-2400 MHZ / LPDDR3-2133 MHz and a TDP rating of 15 watts. Core i7 and i5 processors from Whiskey Lake family intended for mainstream laptop computers and 2-in-1 has a configuration of 4 cores / 8 threads are the same as Kaby Lake-R, but with a single-core turbo, a frequency is higher.

Amber Lake Y-Series

Meanwhile, as quoted from Tom’s Hardware, Thursday (30/08/2018), of the family of Amber Lake 5W Y-Series, which sits in the top spot is the Core i7-8500Y with 2 cores / 4 threads, the base frequency of 1.5 GHz / 4.2 GHz turbo, and 4MB L3 cache.

Second, Core i5-8200Y with 2 cores / 4 threads. base frequency 1.3 GHz / turbo 3.9 GHz, and L3 cache 4 MB. Then there’s the M3-8100Y Core with 2 cores / 4 threads, a base frequency of 1.1 GHz / turbo 3.4 GHz, and a L3 cache of 4 MB.

Core i7-85000Y, i5-8200Y Core, and Core M3-8100Y have the same GPU Graphics Intel 615 UHD, support LPDDR3-1.866 MHz, and a TDP rating of 5 watts for use in fanless devices as well as thin-and-light devices.
The Amber Lake processor family has 2 core / 4 thread designs like Kaby Lake, but with a single-core turbo frequency much higher, reaching 600 MHz for the Core i7 and i5 models, and 400 MHz for the Core M3 model.
