8th Gen Intel Core U-series and Y-series deliver Gigabit Internet

Dell is making its flagship XPS 13 even more affordable with the new model powered by the new Intel 8th Generation i3 processor. Intel stated that the new Intel Core U-series processors come with Gigabit Wi-Fi support to mainstream laptops for the first time and the company is also promising up to 12-times faster connectivity speeds.

The higher-end U-series parts, meanwhile, are comprised of the Core i3-8145U 2C4T at 2.1/3.9GHz, the 4C8T Core i5-8265U at 1.6/3.9GHz, and the 4C8T Core i7-8565U at 1.8/4.6GHz.

In its launch presentation, Intel tossed out a flurry of statistics emphasizing the performance edge that its latest mobile CPUs will have over five-year-old PCs.

However, Trump reportedly decided that extending sympathies to the bereft McCain family on Twitter would suffice. We believe always in the promise and greatness of America because nothing is inevitable here.

With the new processors, computers will switch themselves to low-power mode and back to normal operation, when needed, to achieve a balance between energy efficiency and performance, he said.

Intel promises that these new Y-series chips will deliver double-digit gains in performance compared to the previous generation processors in the thinnest and lightest laptops and 2-in-1s on the market. All include support for either LPDDR3 2,133MHz or DDR4 2,400MHz memory at system builders' discretion and a 15W thermal design profile, along with 4MB, 6MB, and 8MB of cache respectively. The U-series is more powerful among the two families of processors as announced by the chipset maker. All of these improvements comes by way of the 8th Generation platform's new PCH, which integrates a quad-core audio DSP and integrated wireless MAC to support the 802.11AC w/ 160MHz channels. The most important example is probably the inclusion of Gigabit Wi-Fi with Intel Wireless-AC in thin and light laptops and 2 in 1 machines.

Gamers will happy to know that the new U-Series mobile CPUs are also optimized for gaming. On reference systems, it claims to have measured "up to 16 hours battery life" with some power-saving configurations capable of lasting for 19 hours. Formerly known by their respective codenames Whiskey Lake and Amber Lake, these new chips are built upon Intel's 14nm die lithography and come with an assortment of new features.
