Posted by at 3:22 pm on August 8, 2017

It is not a secret that Intel’s eight-generation core processor family is slated for release this year–the company teased the Coffee Lake processors at Computex–but the timeline has remain unconfirmed. Now, Intel has announced that it will hold a Facebook Live webcast on August 21 to officially debut the new processors.

Eighth-gen Coffee Lake chips will be built using a revised version of Intel’s 14nm process technology for an unprecedented fourth time, following in the footsteps of Broadwell, Skylake, and Kaby Lake architectures. You’ll probably also need a new motherboard to use them. But most notably, Intel claims 8th-gen Core chips will be up to 30 percent faster than today’s Kaby Lake processors in some applications. Intel chips haven’t seen a performance leap like that in years.

Gregory Bryant, senior vice president of the Client Computing Group at Intel, will be the sta rof the cast.. He also made the initial Computex presentation earlier this year that featured claims of 30% more performance over the seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors.
